divided Posted January 20, 2006 Posted January 20, 2006 so i thought for sure my ram was holding me back at 1:1 because at 2.7 ghz my computer would always fail prime after like 4 hours. and for some reason i assumed my 3200 should be able to hit 2.7. so i lowered my oc played with timings, adjusted voltages ect...and got it stable at 2.65 with my mem on a 9/10 divider running at ~250. well after ALL the reviews ive read my mem could easily do that and more; most people hit ~280mhz. so i decided to keep the same timings and run the mem at 1:1 and BAMN primed for over 12 hours stable. so all along my proc wall was at 2.65 with the volts i was willing to run it. ***the confession*** i jumped the gun and didnt find my INDIVIDUAL component walls. i just A-S-S-umed my mem was holding me back. **POINT** i should have followed the guide!! ***POINT 2*** Oc is not a guranteed science. i shouldnt have EXPECTED any of my components to do anything beyond spec. Just because everyone elese hits XXXghz doesnt mean MINE will. Lesson Learned. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
