Overclocking RAM Tags: Overclocking RAM Gigabyte Memory Last response: January 22, 2007 5:29 AM in Overclocking Share DennyCraneBL January 21, 2007 4:12:16 PM I have a limited budget, but want to get better memory to overclock my Core 2 Duo E6300 and Gigabyte DS3 board. I have £70 ($140), right now I have only 512MB of very cheap 667Mhz memory that will OC to 826Mhz before going sour. Would I be best buying good 667Mhz memory, or buying cheap 800Mhz memory? I'm trying to get a gigabyte of RAM, and I've found some value 800Mhz stuff or could buy more expensive 667Mhz. I'm hoping to hit maybe 850Mhz ..., which would be around 3Ghz. [hr] Basically its a pick between this: http://www.microdirect.co.uk/ProductInfo.aspx?ProductID... http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?rb=2... or http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?acti...

Reply to exo12 kwalker January 21, 2007 5:31:44 PM Stick with the Corsair but put some after market heat spreaders on them. That’s your best bet for your price range There is no guarantee you'll hit 850 with any value ram. But it is possible. Reply to kwalker Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer DennyCraneBL January 22, 2007 5:29:54 AM Thanks both One more question to pose: Which would offer most performance gain? 1Gb more of the value 667Mhz memory? (Making 1.5Gb) or 1Gb of better memory, and a potentially better overclock? -- The first is cheaper so may offer more bang for buck.
