is CH5 memory pants?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

2.8v will be ok with out active cooling

2.8v-2.9v = make sure you have good airflow

 

3.0v-3.1v-3.2v they will start to get hotter than normal must keep them cool

3.3v+ if you have got any active cooling by now = fried chips.

Isn't the ram rated for at least 2.8v,CH5 likes V's and you can go at least 3.1 b4 you need active cooling,you could also try 2-3-3-x or 2.5-3-3-x

well ive got very little cooling on the inside of my pc at the moment, so would 2.8 be too much without active cooling? the rams only at 2.6 now i think.

oh and i should maybe mention that the 2 memory modules are in dimm1 & 2?

ive read people using them in 1 and 3 instead? could that be a factor?

also, i have a sata hard drive which is on port 3, thats the right sata port to use whilst overclocking right?

 

:)

 

cheers guys

Slots 1 and 3 are definitely the best two on that board you are using. Set Command Rate to 1T too, no need for 2T with your setup and it only kills performance. SATA ports 3 and 4, I.E. the two near the CPU socket are the best. Best thing to do is completely disable ports 1 and 2 in the BIOS :)

right dimm1 and 3 are in use now and im happy to report that ive got the mem to 222mhz. ive managed to source a fan for the side of my case which is about 6 inches away from the ram pushing air in so hopefully itll cool the ram a little whilst ive upped the volts to 2.7 and the timings are 2.3.2.6 @ 2T

ive managed to run superpi and 3dmark with no problems too.

 

:)

 

do you guys reckon that this might be the max i can get out the sticks?

 

*edit*

doh, i spoke too soon. not stable. :(
