How would i OC my ram?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, well my fsb is 200 and mult 20 givin me 4ghz, ram defaulted to 667mhz 9-9-9-24 but it's advertised ddr3 1600 so i changed the multi to make it 800mhz(1600 effective) but that made the timigns 11-11-11-(something else), so i manually choose the right timings so now it's at advertised default 800mhz 9-9-9-24. How do i go about OC'in my ram now? Do i have to touch the fsb which might add instability to my cpu OC? Could i OC my ram without touching the fsb?

yes you have to up your fsb to overclock your ram from there on. drop down ur multi to 3.8 ghz and up from there . drop ur cpu nb a few notchs too. Once u hit 225 at the 1600 strap u should be at 1800 mhz

ok, but should i bother changing timings when at 1800mhz?, also what voltages should i use? right now it's at default which i'm not sure is either 1.5 or 1.8v

1.65 and u can try 8-8-8-24 but try for 1800 at stock then lower the timings.

but wait one question, if i drop mult to 3.8ghz(19.0) and fsb to 225, that'll give me 4.275ghz as a cpu OC, not sure if i can make that stable

rofl that was a rough guess on multi ;p. drop it to a lower speed at 225. like 3.8 ghz at 225 fsb so u know ur cpu isnt causing instablity
