Having trouble breaking 2.6 Ghz on OCZ EL Platinum (CH-5?)

Recommended Posts

I've been trying this out for a few days now, but the highest stable overclock I've been able to reach is 230x11 before my RAM limits me. My 4400+ is supposed to be able to reach around 2.65 Ghz before I have to go past 1.65V. Has anyone had any luck getting the 2 GB kits to overclock well, or am I just unlucky? I'm using the OCZ4002048ELDCP kit, by the way.

I've been thinking about doing that as well, but I'd prefer to keep it at 1:1 unless if there is no other way.

 

Why?

 

Using a divider doesnt lose you anything regards performance as long as you choose the best divider to keep the RAM as close to its max speed as possible.

 

Limiting your CPU to the speed of your RAM is costing you a lot regards running the RAM on a divider with a 2.6Ghz CPU.

I am pretty sure there are some articles floating around here that go over the ram divider, timings etc that really put things in perspective as far as minimal to no loss with the divider in place. You will get more out of the system overall with a higher CPU overclock than keeping the Ram 1:1
