I have 2 gigs Corsair XMS2 PC6400, running beatifully at 1:1 400mhz fsb on my e6400 @3.2ghz, which I'm happy with.
Was just wondering if anyone else who had this RAM would be able to advise me how far I'd be likely to get beyond the rated 400mhz? It's on 4-4-4-12, so there's probably a bit of leeway, right?
I have 2GB Corsair XMS2 6400 CAS4 (TWINX2048-6400C4) running with the C2D E6600 on the Abit AB9 PRO pushing 525MHz (DDR2-1050) with 2.2 Volt VDIMM. I don't know how far I can push but I read somewhere that P965 chipset may have problem go further than 350 FSB which I'm at it right now.
I set the voltage at 1.9 from the start. I keep it at 2.1V for 400 FSB, although I'm not sure it needs it.
I made a direct jump from 400 FSB (DDR800) to FSB 475 (DDR950) because of a quirk in the P5B Deluxe bootstrap. Anything between 401 and 467 FSB is actually slower (memory wise) than just using 400 FSB. At 475, I had to up the voltage to 2.15 and loosen the timings to get memtest to pass.
thanks for the tips all, I might try and get the beast to go a bit further then if I can keep the temperatures under control, should be able to get 450 out of them without loosening the timings by the looks of things...
Hm, Orthos is throwing up errors as soon as I go to 410mhz fsb. Even when I raise vcore a notch and bring the ram down to 5-5-5-15.
Could this be my motherboard limiting me? it's a P5B vanilla and that's the only thing I can think of. Ideas anyone?
