Overclocking i5 2500k BCLK to increase RAM Speed?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So speccy is reporting my RAM at 498MHz, CPU-Z at 665.2MHz. I'm just wondering if overclocking the BCLK would be how I get it to run at 1333MHz? I really have no idea what I'm doing, just guessing here, and trying to get my RAM running at the proper speed.

I tried a lot of googling, and didn't come up with anything.

Mobo is GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3.

What RAM? Read the label off the ram and adjust manually in bios. Do not touch BCLK.

This is my specific RAM:

And I've never had to modify any BIOS settings to get my RAM to run at the stock speed, so I don't really know what I should be adjusting. I just figured it was clocking down to synchronize with the FSB/BCLK.

multiply your CPU-Z RAM speed by 2 to get your actual speed. Adjust it using the RAM multiplier in your BIOS.

665.2MHz x 2 = 1330...
