Hi guys,

specs:
q6600 @ 3,4 (380x9) (1,45v)
p5p43td PRO
Corsair xms3 ddr3 1333 2x2GB @ 1266 (8-8-8-18)

i'm trying to get my memory to a higher clock, because it's running under 1333 at the moment.
I't running 1266mhz right now, but i would like to get it to run at 1533.
What is the best way and what are the best settings to achieve this?

Thanks in advance,
Laulie

srry, just realised that i posted in the wrong section.

BTW I deleted your other topic :)
To get your ram higher you should increase the DRAM voltage (not sure if available on your mobo) and set the timings larger like 9-9-9-24 for 1600mhz .
Then just adjust your cpu FSB and multi until it gives you 1533mhz as an option
You should be able to run 1533mhz at 9-9-9-24 with higher DRAM voltage , but again , it depends on whether the RAM can run at that speed .
Some RAM overclocks worse than other sticks that are the same brand so it depends partly on luck

Thanks for the deleting and reply.

Okay, than lets hope luck is on my side.
What is the voltage is should aim for?
and even more important, what is the max voltage i can use without making toast?

What is the stock voltage of your ram ? I assume 1.5v ? If 1.5v then no more than 1.65 , 1.6v should be safe on that ram and cooling and should get you to 1533mhz .
Well I pushed 1.65v ram all the way to 1.9v but that was with a good ram cooling solution

Stock is 1,5v.
Than i'll try to reach 1533 with 1,65v.
I'll be back in 15 min with the result.

doesn't look like luck is on my side....
gets stuck somewhere between 1403 and 1443 @ 1,65v, tha's not enought perfomance gain if you compare it to how much i have to downclock my q6600.
It does boot bios, but when starting windows, i get a bsod

You think there is any possibility to get q6600 past 3,6 or even 4 ghz while running the memory just at or below stock?
cause i'm worried about the absolute max voltage of the cpu.
i'm currently running 380*9 @ 1,45v in bios, temps are no problem yet. (cnps9900 cooler)
what voltage should i set to get it running at 3,6?

running memory below stock specs robs VERY little and an assuredly unnoticable amount of performance.

If you can clock your Q6600 higher I'd do that as that will net real life gains that memory overclocking simply does not often net without running a benchmark.

Real world increases are what counts :)
