E8500 help with memory clocks Tags: CPUs Overclocking Gaming Memory Last response: January 22, 2009 12:20 AM in CPUs Share salabarria January 22, 2009 12:03:04 AM i have my e8500 running at 3.8 with the fsb @ 1600....should i overclock the memory which is 4gb @ 800mhz...would it make any difference in gaming? my memory timings are 5-5-5-18 More about : e8500 memory clocks dragonsprayer January 22, 2009 12:08:19 AM set the system 425fsb 1.47v on intel mobo cpuz should show 1.44v at full load on orthos set the memory to 5-5-5-15 to start and 2.1v run othos with memory only, cpu only and both lower latencies to 5-5-4 is possible try up to 450fsb dragonsprayer January 22, 2009 12:10:42 AM timings do not matter if its good ram its all the same 5-5-5 1.9v = 4-4-4 2.1v typically higher volt is better but not always your memory should be 1:1 or 2:1 in cpuz at 450fsb your memory is ddr900 even if its ddr800 it will run it if you bought decent memory then run sandra mem bandwidth you get 6800-7200 highest number is the best setting at the highest cpu speed choose higher mem bandwidth over slightly higher cpu speed Related resources Memory clocks voltage... help - Forum I need some help with setting memory clocks - Forum Help with my Sapphire x1900gt core\memory clocks - Forum Help with Memory Interface and clock speed - Forum cpu low memory clock help - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Get the answer salabarria January 22, 2009 12:11:25 AM well i dont really want to overclock my processor anymore i was wondering if i overclock the memory to like 1066mhz if it would make a difference and would i have to change the timings dragonsprayer January 22, 2009 12:19:00 AM keep it 1:1 if you got 400 run 4-4-4 try 2.05v running it at 450fsb is fine - i sell systems with 3 year warranty with 4.3ghz e8500 it runs fine if its a E0 - i take that back some do and some do not run othos to find the right fsb dragonsprayer January 22, 2009 12:20:46 AM if you run the cpu at 1600 and the memory at 1066 they are out of syn and three is no good reason to do it. fsb 400 is optimal for memory at 4-4-4 run sandra and see which is best try 5-5-5 1066 but when you multitaks and they are out of syn you get a new latency Can't find your answer ?
