Hi there ,<br><br>
Please help to overclock this new Intel I just got on sale.<br>
I live in KOrea, and usually get Samsung Ram , I got 2 of 512MB in DUAL<br>
slots of my ASUS P5LD2 (rev 1.01) , I just put a new Pentium D 945 and I am already liking it. I wanted to get the Core 2 Duo , but didn't want to change my MOBO for the moment. ^_^ ^_^<br><br>
So now I left it at stock setting and the facoty latency of the 667 Mhz rams are 5-5-5 , the ram settings are still a bit of a mystery, because, there seems to be no General Law of doing it, or is there. I once changed some settings to try it out , but COMPUTER would start up AT ALL... things like that, but I also want the best performance out of this CPU and RAM...<br><br>
Please give some personal suggestion... ON overclocking this CPU and handling the RAM TIMING, I Use CPU-z and FSB<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">RAM ratio is 3:5 CPU voltage is 1.288 ~1.296 at the moment. I still use the stock fan , but will be changing perhaps, but If I reach 4.0 GHZ with not too much sound I think i can manage.<br><br>
Thank you so much<br>
See you<br>
Ralph

Go through this set of FAQs first:<br />

Ok, so you have DDR2 667 RAM. Put it down to DDR2 533 settings in the BIOS for now, leave timings at AUTO. The RAM speed will increase with the FSB. For example, if your FSB is 250, your RAM speed will be 250/200 x 533 = DDR2 667 speeds, which brings your RAM speed back to stock, but your CPU at 4.25 GHz.<br />
<br />
Don't mess with timing just yet. Lets first get this going...<br />
<br />
Keep a close eye on temps with that stock cooler!!
