That said, you can always try and see if it's stable. My OCZ Gold 1600MHz runs OK around 1800MHz so you may be able to get there. Just play with the RAM multiplier to get it (RAM speed is BCLK*RAM multiplier*2, DDR is double data rate so that's where the 2 comes from). Due to this, BCLK overclocking of your CPU also affects your RAM (CPU speed is BCLK*CPU multiplier).
Hey thanks for replying! BTW, how is school? Have you begun the new semester?
Our new school year here began in late July [we are on the modified traditional schedule].
Well, aren't there other variables that affect stability? I wish Slay would help me he is an expert in this area...but I think he doesn't like me anymore.
Anyway, I was hoping someone could help me to gain the 1600 MHz on the one pair, and see how we can get the 2000MHz rated pair [use each separately of course].
Calc, good to hear from you. Have a great summer, what's left of it.
