When im trying to squeeze a little bit more performance out of my RAM, something strange happens.
If I set the clock frequency really low ( on a 4 or 5 multiplier), but the HTT to about 240-250, and i dont use a divider, I can boot up fine. I look in cpuz and the RAM is at DDR480-500.
I know my CPU is capable of near 3GHz speeds, so its not the CPU thats holding me back.
When I try to set the HTT to 240 and the multi to 11, it boots up fine, but when i check in cpuz, it says that the HTT is only at 210MHz
This happens every time, ive tried tweaking some of the settings but nothing helps. Ive loosened the timings on the RAM, no luck. Ive increased the voltages, nothing. It wont boot using the settings i defined. When I look in the CMOS, the settings are as I set them, 240HTT, 1:1 divider, 11x multi, etc.
If anyone has any ideas what could be causing this please let me know.
PS: My specs are in my sig, but its kinda small, so here are the main parts: CPU=3700 sandy Mobo=Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D
Here is the RAM i use. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231034
I realize that 2gig kits arent the best overclockers but i know other people have gotten DDR500 out of this kit and i can do it without my CPU interfering.
