Help with Overclocking, not sure what's wrong..

Alright, whenever I manually set my Ram (G.Skill Eco ddr3-1600) to 1600mhz @ 8-8-8-24 with the CPU stock, the system runs.

But if I OC the cpu at all with those timings, (I've tried up to 1.4250v or so) it won't work.

I did the OC Utility thing and it automatically OC'ed my system to...
Cpu: ~3470mhz
Ram: ~1444mhz @ 9-9-9-24.

How can I get the CPU to run at ~3.4ghz with the ram at ~1600 @ 8-8-8-24?

Set your ram to 'normal' settings,
Overclock your chip first and get that stable,
then get onto clocking the ram,
Sorry for short answer but I are tired and need sleep :)

If you set the RAM to 1600MHz then increase the CPU Frequency the RAM goes over 1600MHz, you can increase the CPU multiplier without it changing the RAM though. So if you want to increase the CPU multiplier drop the RAM to 1333 1st.

Thanks for the replies, but how would I go about having the ram @ ~1600 with the CPU at ~3.4? I'd rather it be ~1600 instead of ~1444 or something.

Best solution

Increase the CPU multiplier not the frequency. The processor at stock is 16 multiplier X 200 frequency = 3.2, as you have a black edition processor you can increase either or both the frequency and the multiplier. The frequency increases the processor, RAM and the NB while the multiplier only overclocks the CPU. So to get 3.4 from the processor set the multiplier to 17 with the frequency at the stock 200, 17 X 200 = 3400MHz = 3.4GHz.

Can I ask a similar question? I have anm X2 5000+ processor (Windsor) and my new Gigabyte mobo lets me increase the multiplier as well as the frequency.

Can I still do this even though it isn't a Black edition?

You can ask, but this thread has been solved so youll be better off starting your own thread, more people will see it for one.
