  1. Probably not as long as it is good RAM.

    How did that overclock your RAM to 900Mhz? The E5500 is a 14x multiplier right? So you have the FSB set to 221 x 14 = 3.1Ghz right? Core2 chips do best with the RAM set at a 1:1 ratio with the FSB. You must have the RAM set at a 2:1 ratio.
  2. yes it was at 1:2
    it is now at 3:5 ratio
    will now 3.2 ghz work?
  3. Best answer
    I had an E8400 with a 9x multiplier that still runs at 4.050Ghz even today ( I sold it to a friend ) and it has Corsair DDR2 800 overclocked to 900Mhz and has been running stable since 2007. 450FSB * 9x multiplier. I left the RAM at a 1:1 ratio with the FSB.

    As long as you have good RAM and the system is stable for 6 to 8 hours of Prime 95 tesing your RAM is fine overclocked to 900Mhz. I say leave it at a 1:2 ratio.

  10. u can overclock by .5 ghz at most

    I did reached 3.0 ghz but then within 10 mins the system crashed twice & second time i got BOD so i went back to stock.

    So i guess all i need is an aftermarket cooler & I am good, by the way my current PSU is hytech 400W, should i buy a new PSU as well ??

  16. get a good cooler if you can afford then go with a H60 or heavy heatsink coolers
    mine works with a hyper tx3 but you have quad core and its running on 65nm manufacturing process thats why you need good cooling
