How do you OC ram?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok so I am looking into overclocking my ram, I have upped the voltage to 1.65 but how do I decide on what numbers to put in for timings?

My ram:

What are the default timings? cas 9?

If so those are generic sticks and probably wont be of any (or very little) benefit to overclocking.

Just make sure the corrent timings and speed are set in the bios. Lots of ram default at 1333 cas 9, so be sure youre running yours at 1600 9-9-9 and your good to go.

Yep I checked the bios and it's set to 1600 9-9-9-24 at 1.64 volts, all I want to know is how do I attempt to make the ram faster? is there any rule when decreasing timings? any suggestions on what to change the timing to?

Not really. Try Bumping the voltage to 1.68 and timings to 8-9-8-22

Hmmmm I may just keep it at 1600 9-9-9-24. I put it at 1.68 and 8-9-8-22, it posted but I am seeing slower GFlops in IBT, it has went from around 50 GFlops to 32...

1600 CL9 memory I don't tend to consider generic, they usually have at least some overclocking headroom (i.e. many kits reach 1600 CL8). They're much better for overclocking than the majority of 1333 kits. Use only as much voltage as you need. Why IBT went from 50 GFlops to 32 stumps me though... try again, or increase voltage? Some memory doesn't even like voltage increases (i.e. most G.Skill NQ) so try lower voltages.
