I'm very much a noob when it comes to overclocking. I'm trying to do a slight overclock on my i5 750 with Asus Maximus III Formula mobo. I want it at 3.6 ghz, which I have achieved, but the DRAM Timings has changed. The RAM is supposed to run at 9-9-9-24 according to spec. The way I have it overclocked, it runs at 9-10-10-27 at 1440MHz (specced at 1600MHz). Is this a problem? The settings I'm using are as follows.
BCLK = 180
CPU Mult = 20
Load Line Calibration Disabled
CPU voltage 1.225
DRAM Voltage 1.545
I have it working and it seems to be stable at the moment, but I was just curious about this. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm definitely open to any. Thanks in advance
Edit: Prime 95 gave me errors almost immediately after starting it up again. I googled the error and it appears to be an issue with Memory. I reset bios to defaults and ran again without that error. I'm definitely confused now, because this configuration worked earlier...
Enable turbo and manually set the ram timings. What is your cooler and board? Cheap boards don't oc that well compared to others and low end or stock coolers make overclocking much more a pain. I got the 760 but yours only needs higher volts though.
