I have a C2D E6750 CPU , an Asus P5K-E mobo and DDR2 800 Kingston Value RAM. I tried Ocing the RAM but system becomes unstable when ram speed becomes around 840 or so.
just wondering in this article they have OCed these same RAM by upping the voltage to 2v. http://anandtech.com/memory/showdoc.aspx?i=3476&p=2
I would like to know how high are the risks of burning the RAM if I up the voltage and when will I know exaclty at what point I should do this???
And will there be any problems for the CPU running the RAM at 2v?
Or should I just go and get some high end RAM?? Like OCZ reaper 1066???
Overclocking your RAM will net you very, very little real world performance gain. Most memory is sensitive to overclocking, and over volting as well. You can fry a new stick of memory pretty fast if you raise the voltage by even very slightly too much.
The key to improved performance is to overclock your proscessor, and use the dividers to keep your memory running at stock.
