First Time OC'er

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I've been building up my rig for some time, and i was about to start the OC-Phase, though my mind stopped me as i never did anything alike it before

My current RAM speed is seen in BIOS Post to be 1066mhz, though i'm running on 3x4GB 2ghz Corsairs (default is my guess?)

CPU is currently running at 33-35C in idle/surfing mode.

My question is, what should i do to make my memory work at the speed as promised from Corsair?

Any answer is gladly taken.

go into the bios and manually set the timings, speed, and voltage through the bios to manufacturer settings. Look at the box or the sticks for the settings they expect you to use.

also go here and edit your system specs for future help. Welcome to ocn

Though my computer wont boot with the above mentioned settings.

Does your board support these speeds?

I have a similar issue, where i can change the voltage of my RAM to 2.2 as the stats suggests can't find where to change the timings within my board anywhere though

2000MHz is a nice easy number to hit with that CPU.

200BLCK, 21x CPUxM, 10x RAMxM.
Bam. 4.2GHz, 2,000MHz frequency.
(There are a million other ways to do that, especially with your unlocked multiplier)


You set your timings in a different menu in the BIOS.

i brought the 6gb kit of GT's and couldn't get it to boot without a bucket load of qpi/vtt and even then wasn't stable. tried manually setting so many different timings and voltages it was ridiculous! i gave up and ended up lowering frequency voltages and tightening timings. i also have a asus R3E and after surfing the forums i realized its quiete common with doms on this board, and even corsair reps on theyre own forum were saying at least 1.5 qpi/vtt, took me 1.68 qpi/vtt and 1.7dram just to boot, then i said stuff it go for the lower settings. goodluck with it
