Re: New to overclocking. Help?
prime95 is a good stress tester, along with superpi. what you'd want to to increase your ram is go into the Frequency/Voltage Control Menu in your bios, then go to the memory settings, then from there you can increase the frequency which is just like increasing the clock speed of your cpu. Increase it bit by bit and if it doesn't boot increase the voltage, same would apply if you want to lower the timings (which would increase responsiveness).
As a side note, you probably won't see too much increase in performance as it will be minimal, and the amount of ram matters in most tasks more than the speed of your ram.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
