G.Skill DDR2 1066 Overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all.

I've always had TERRIBLE luck overclocking memory, even if it's 10 or so mhz over stock, so usually i just never bothered.

However, after reading this:
http://forum.benchmarkreviews.com//s...ad.php?t=11891

I thought i'd give it a shot. And yes, i run the exact same modules as him - albeit four of them (4x2GB)

This guy apparently got 1380MHz using 6-6-6-20, plus higher subtimings.

I can't even get it at 1150Mhz using the SAME timings/subtimings he used for 1380mhz. I can boot into windows, but it's not stable.

Any higher frequency, it won't even post. I've tried everything i can think of and i'm starting to call bs on what this guy did

Can anyone help me? It's all on my sig rig.

He probably overvolted and cooled them.

...They are rated to run at between 2.0-2.1v, and for my tests I selected 2.1v from the motherboard's BIOS (GA-P35-DS3L)
nope.

There is no way in hell you will reach those speeds using 4x2GB. Try with 2x2GB. 4x2GB is much harder to overclock.

I've found that using 2x2GB + 2x1GB (6GB all four slots) are almost as easy to overclock as 2x2GB. But 4x2GB is pretty hopeless..

Wouldn't this be more of a chipset specific problem? or is it a general memory overclocking rule that the more ram sticks, the harder it is to overclock?
