Overclocking CPU - What Ram should i get? Tags: Overclocking RAM CPUs Product Last response: February 21, 2008 1:08 PM in Overclocking Share veezee February 18, 2008 8:18:30 PM I plan on overclocking. My build will consist of: cpu - intel allendale E2160 1.8ghz mobo - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L vid card - MSI NX8400GS-TD256E GeForce 8400GS (256MB onboard) 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Im confused on what ram to get. There are so many choices and im fairly new at this. Can i get away with just overclocking the cpu and not the ram?

On that motherboard, if you OC the fsb, you automatically OC the ram. But don't worry, you can hit 1000MHz with that ram easily.
