How do ya overclock memory

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a ECS Motherboard MCP61M-M3 WITH A NVIDA chipset MCP61 AND Phenom IIx4 965 processor with 1 gb of ddr3 1333 single memory stick, It will take dual memory. I'm trying to overclock it with ddr3 1600 daul memory, but I'm not sure how .I am new at this overclocking. Can anyone help? THANKS in advance.

You're using 2 1GB sticks of 1333 and 1600 respectively? The second will automatically downclock to 1333, and the performance gains from 1333 to 1600 are minimal to say the least.

I'd imagine there are many tutorials stickied within this section on overclocking.

Mixing performance memory with generic memory... not a good idea

The other extremely bad idea is using 965 on that mobo. Extremely cheap generic board 3+1 phase cannot, should not and WILL NOT run a 125W 965 safely or efficiently. Swap that mobo now or start locking some CPU cores/undervolting before consequences befall you.
