I have my E7200 processor that is normally 2.53 ghz stock running at 3.3ghz stock with some headroom in terms of temperature. I have my ram running on a FSB:RAM multiplier to keep it running close to 800mhz. This is the ram I have:
Newegg.com - A-DATA 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
I want to overclock more but know that my ram might be an issue. In the reviews it says that it does not overclock well. Do I need to buy better ram before overclocking more? I don't really understand what having certain FSB:RAM ratios does to the operating conditions of the ram. I know that operating it at too high of a speed may not be possible, though. What should I be careful of when trying to overclock past 3.3ghz? How far should I be able to overclock before I need to start worrying about ram problems?
PS: I know i've had a lot of threads lately, but this is going to be my absolute last one. Promise.
I have all other issues worked out. I recently upgraded my 480 watt psu to a 700watt one with fantastic amp ratings.
