Quick RAM Overclocking Question Tags: Overclocking RAM Last response: April 24, 2010 4:20 AM in Overclocking Share ikyung April 24, 2010 3:43:39 AM Hello everyone. I had a quick question for RAM Overclocking. I am getting the i7 930 and planning to OC to 3.8 The ram I am getting is the Gskill 6gb 1600 CPU Multiplyer/Bclk : 21/181 or 22/173 If i put the ram multiplyer to 8, I will either get 1448 or 1384 At 10, 1810 or 1730 Now the questions are: Should I put the CPU multiplyer to 21 or 22? Any real difference? How do I clock my RAM to 1600, if i can't should i go for 1730 or 1448? Thank you.

If your RAM is rated at 1600MHz, and you can't achieve it, you'd have to set your multiplier lower or lower your BCLK. | Report abuse ikyung April 24, 2010 4:09:55 AM Wouldn't lowering the Bclk lower the CPU speed also? | Report abuse Lmeow Overclocking Expert April 24, 2010 4:20:19 AM Yes it would. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Quick RAM Overclocking Question> Related ressources: Forum2 quick questions, overclocking DDR3 Ram with E8400 and Power supply 1 ForumQ9400 Overclocking - Quick Temperature Question ForumQuick question about ram !
