Will try to tighen up RAM, should I keep my current CPU OC, or change RAM then try OC

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What do people normally do first, or what normally works best, tighten up RAM, then see what OC on CPU and CPU/NB works, or reverse the order of all that?

I have g skill DDR3 1600 eco 7-8-7-24-2N @1.35V, whats the 2N?

So far them seem to work better at ~1.4V when I've OCed the rest, and the asus BIOS always uses 1T when set to auto, whereas CPUZs timing table suggests 7-8-7-24-40-2T, is that good or bad?

yup, was a while ago though.

6-8-6-20-24-1T with ~1.5V
Not very hard to do with the ECOs. Some ECOs have Elpida BBSE in them (slightly better) and can do 1600 6-7-6.

I read that where you posted somewhere else, I have them working at 7-8-7-20-30-1T, for now I'm running that with

16x210=3360 @1.39
1680 RAM @1.45 thats the highest I've tried yet, 1.425V seemed too low
2520NB @1.35625
and I choose 1890HT rather than 2100HT

Prime95 has been running for almost 2hr

On same settings and lower CPU and RAM voltage, it failed in 10min, so I guess I'm on the right track.

In general when lowering timing, does that usually require more volts?

Not just posted, running [have a look at my sig]
I could probably do this with less voltage but my motherboard has a sad DRAM voltage minimum of 1.6. Not a bad proposition anyway.
