Would be helpful if you'd provide a short summary of how far you've clocked, what (if any) problems you're having pushing further, etc. etc.

 

Other helpful info would be what clocks you're aiming for.

ive gotten to 2.6stable before with my old corsair sticks, so i slapped these on last night and cleared cmos and such etc, and then started on these g.skills and id like to get something 2.6-2.7 range? so i can atleast make myself feel that it was worth my money on those sticks. lol

check sig, i got lucky with my HZ's, I have had them to 290+, presently running @273+

 

i will tell you this, the HZ's luv lower voltages, i got better clockage when i lowered mine..

 

laterzzz.........

Well of course! It's your hardware.

Be patient and test, test, test...

Use the databases to get some ideas of timings, there are plenty of threads in there using HZs.

ive basically messed with all the settings there and most ive had was 2.6 @ 1.55volts and it crashed after 30mins of orthos. either that or i just have a really bad chip...and im really stuck on the DRAM drive strength and DRAM data drive strength, it seems that those 2 plays a big part on stability and ive tried every combination i can with what the 7/4 2beta bios provides.

It could be your cpu voltage letting you down.

Only way to know if it's RAM or cpu related is to do tests for each.

Test RAM with your cpu clocked to it's default speeds and push the RAM and vice-versa.

Overclocking can take days, weeks even at times.

how do you determine whether your chip likes voltages or not? because i think mine does, seems like the more voltages i give the more mhz it gives me, but just because it likes it, doesnt mean i should really apply as much to it because it might just burn out my board aswell -.-! so ive orthos over night with 2.5ghz with mem 1:1 and 1.35v x 1.10special vid=1.48 volts total. and its fine. but thats not giving me any more oc'ing headroom with what i had with my corsair sticks before.. sigh...
