Memory OC

When putting my blk to 191, it increases my ram to 1500mhz which is too high so i lower the multiplier to x6. Which then puts the mhz to 1145mhz.

Is this too high to run on the auto voltage and cause instability?

My ram above.

I am trying to reach 4ghz on my CPU, so help is appreciated here.

Well i would say you might as well push the ram to 1600Mhz :lol: 

Have you tested or booted into windows with the ram at that speed? Yeah if it's too high it can cause instability - but auto voltage doesn't usually go higher than it's supposed to. That's why many times you manually adjust the voltage to push the voltage even farther x)

lol, nice. Not a bad OC there for a mushkin :)  Were you able to hit 4.0ghz on your cpu? And i'm assuming it's the i7 on your siggy there x)

Nah, it freezes durring INterl Burn test and its a bit too hot for me even though its under TjMax.

Its a better idea to try and overclock one component at a time rather than cpu + ram at the same time.

Freezing is probally normal. Check % ram useage in task manager while its running. if % is very high, then that will be why it freezes.
