To much ram power? Hurting O/C's?

286 3
I am running the memory in my specs. I have it running at 3.0v right now (highest to maintain warranty). Is it possible that I have it too high and is actually hurting my OCing? I'm at work right now so i cant test it, but i would like some input before I got home. The best I have been able to do with the ram before is 225mhz.

Many times when people max out at 220ish HTT it is because they forgot to turn down their HTT multiplier.
In general, uping the volts is the last thing I do. I find the max I can go and be stable...then up the volts a little and repeat.

I have seen systems that could get impressive OC's on stock voltages and uping the volts furthur didn't help any either.

I have the Corsair XMS PC3200 RAM but not the kit. I am not very happy with BTW.

The max I have been able to get out of it is 220Mhz - Stable-
even at the higher voltages.

heck - mine won't even POST above 2.7v

It depends a lot on the chips used on the DIMM.

i think you should do what vagrant suggested...reduce the volts and start again from ground up...if i am right i had the same ram and did do a 237 b4
