i need help overclocking this ram or setting it up to work whit my 3.2ghz setup

im running a Q6600 Go Vcore 2.355

Set it on a 1:1 ratio in the bios, run the ram at the specs given. Which are probably around 2.1V?

At your current fsb which is equal to 355, your ram will run at 355x2 = 710.

To run the ram at 1066, set your ratio to 3/2 which will be 3/2 x 355 = 532.5. Your ram will be 533 x 2 = 1065.

I sincerely hope you meant with a 1.355 vcore. Otherwise:

On the ud3p you should be able to unlock your RAM multiplier in the BIOS. When you do this, at any given FSB, it should show you your respective RAM timing. Keep selecting different multipliers until you hit the desired RAM speed. Most likely you should run at a 400 fsb speed with an 8 times multiplier and then find the divider that will yield a 1066 Mhz speed.

On the gigabyte boards when you select the RAM divider it displays the effective FSB for that setting. Just pick through them until you see the speed you want our of your RAM. My FSB is 445 and my divider is 5:6 giving me a DRAM frequency of 534 which x2 = 1068.

but im getting blue screens every time i log in to windows and sometime on the web

i have 400x8

Ram/

X.M.P = Disabled
MCH FL = 200 0R 400Mhz
SPD = 2.66c

Everything else is NORMAL

idk but is slow and is logy

and is a 8Gb 1066mhz 8500

The UD3P doesnt use dividers in the bios. For example, 1:1 is listed as 2.00 (then there is a letter after is denoting the NB strap.. A, B, C, and D). There is also 2.40 and 2.66 etc. Op, this means you need to just take the FSB and pick the SPD multiplier that will get your ram at 1066 or higher if you are trying to overclock.

Those are still dividers. 2 = 1:1, 4 = 2:1 all the other settings are the same. divide the setting number by 2 and multiply both sides by whatever you need to get whole numbers. this will give you the true divider.

2.4:2 = 1.2:1 = 5:6

was 1:1 ? was all these # i don't see it on my mobo

im going to run Memtest86-3.5

It is a ratio of the FSB speed, to the memory speed.

Refer to Ericoed's post, his is specific to your motherboard, and is probably easier to understand.

Jose,

I just build a similar rig for my friend with Q6600 CPU and your mobo. He's running 8 Gig of OZ 1066 ram. If you have already OC your CPU to 3.2, you must have already set within the bios twicker to 8x for the multiplier and 400 bus speed...that's how you get the 3.2 ghz. If that's the case, set your RAM timing control to manual and make sure it's 5-5-5-15. you should see the ram speed in a grayed out number above the timing control showing 1066mhz. you are all set. I would also bump up the voltage on the CPU and RAM so they will run stable. Then do a Prime95 stress test on it for about 30 minutes.

One more suggestion, get rid of the stock cooler for the CPU, if you oc your cpu from 2.4 to 3.2, you need a good cooler.

wow dude Thank You,

i just need a good 3.2ghz setting and im good to go

Nice!

take a screen shot of your bios setting.

Yes of course I know they represent dividers. But to better explain it to the OP, it helps to put it in terms of the bios options. To tell someone 2.00 is a divider makes no sense. All it is is multiplying the FSB by 2.00, so there is no division involved.

The same can be said for the NVIDIA chipset. The bios does not use ram speed in terms of dividers, but we all know it still uses them.

Extreme memory profile - Disabled
DRAM Termination - 1.05v
Channel A Reference - 1.05v
Channel B Reference - 1.05v
MCH/DRAM Reference - 1.05v

That should help you stabilize quite a bit, from there you can try working the clocks up.

Also check your Performance Level which is named something like Static tRead in your advanced timings. If it's at 7, set it to 8.

i had to go from 410*8 to 400*8

and now im getting 1066Mhz lol sweet

you think i can go higher

Most likely, but 4 sticks is harder to overclock then 2. Try setting it 3mhz higher at a time and run memtest+ 2.11.
