When i overclocked the e8400 to 4.05 GHz, I found it impossible to overclock my RAM so that it would pass the Orthos Ram Stress Test. It would fail within 2 seconds.
So i was researching the advanced timings of the ram, and realised that the motherboard was setting the [AUTO] timings incorrectly, therefore i would have to set them myself. Doing so i was able to have 0 errors on the Orthos Ram Test
This was achieved at stock 3.0 GHz. Now i wanted to bring my CPU back up to speed, But even a few MHz and it just would not boot to windows!
After racking my brain for the past 11 hours, i still cannot set the correct timings in BIOS so that i can overclock my CPU, and able to pass the stress test in Orthos.
Therefore my question:
Is it a better compromise to leave the e8400 stock 3 Ghz and have Tight ass timings on the RAM.
Clock the CPU to 4.05 Ghz and relax the timings of the RAM extremely ?
