Corsair vengeance 4gb ddr3 1600mhz overclocking Guide??

Hello,
I m Using Asus M4A78LT-M Mobo And Amd Phenom II x6 1055t cpu
I have overclcok cpu at 3.6ghz
now i have buy new Ram(Corsair vengeance 4gb ddr3 1600mhz)
So which settings for This Ram
Now my Mobo settings are...
cpu frequency= 251x14=3514
nb frepuency= auto =2510mhz
ht frequency= Auto= 2510mhz
nb/ht voltage=Auto
Dram frequency =auto=669.3mhz(why this cpu id shows dram frequency 669.3mhz but Ram is about 1600mhz...)
Dram timing=Auto=8-8-8-20-27-1t
Are these Settings good if not please tell me perfect settings...
Thank u

  1. hi mandeep .. because The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1800+(O.C.)/1600(O.C.) it mean you must do manually from bios in setting memory sellect 1600
  2. Unless your shooting for benchmarks there is no reason to go past 1600. There is a hair of a difference if you go up to 1866, but beyond that the gains are even smaller. OC your ram could lead to a less stable overclock too.

    First of all Thanx for reply,
    how to check my ram is running in what mhz?
    if 'cpu id' it shows 669mhz in dram frquency
    My Ram is 1600mhz so how to check?
    where are the settings to set 1600mhz?
    Now nb/ht freq. is 2510mhz
    Dram freq. cpu id 669mhz
  4. Your currently running your 1600 @ 1333. 669*2

    it means When i was use kingston 2x2gb 1333 ddr3 vs new corsair vengeance 1600mhz 4gb is equal speed in this mobo.....:-(

    Sir, please tell me how to set 1600mhz in bios
  7. I dunno where it is on your asus board, but there should be a DRAM section where you can enter the volts of your ram (should be 1.5v), 1600, x,x,x,xx (whatever your timing settings are). Just poke around your bios, by default they are all set on auto, which is why you are only getting 1333 (intel's recommended default).
  8. first u must in default mode not overclock !
    and then go in bios - advanced - memory clock mode manual - memory clock value set 1600. and then check in CPU -Z will show 800

    and then check in CPU -Z will show 800

    in mobo bios settings
    memory clock=manual=667mhz
    i have set it on 667,then it shows 836mhz in CPU id
    and i have set memory timmings manualy which is 9-9-9-24-41(1t)
    After set it there was become BSOD(VOLTAGE was auto=1.5v and not stable with Prime95)
    Then i have set memory voltage=1.56v after checking 4 hour stability test with prime95 which is Stable..
    Are these voltage and Timmings Are OK...
    These are pictures...

    yaa i have Corsair vengeance 4gb ddr3 1600mhz....(4gbx1)
  12. oooh i see, it good setting .. or you maybe want tighten timing again set 8-9-9-24-41 ( if stable) and run benchmark use Maxmem2 : http://www.maxxpi.net/pages/downloads/maxxmemsup2---preview.php
    try compare it with maxmem with setiing : 836mhz 9-9-9-24 - 41 vs 836mhz 8-9-9-24-41 .. take higher result .. which win ?

    with Timmings 9-9-9-24-41....(WINS in all but not in memeory read)

    with timmings 8-9-9-24-41(wins in memeory read)

  14. Best answer
    i don't see score, if you summit you will know score :D ... or use timming 9, that will give more stable from 8 .. also in 9-9-9-24 you had more room for raise FSB :D ... i think enough .. enjoy

    836mhz,9-9-9-24-41 scores=59.3 ns
    836mhz,8-9-9-24-41 scores=57.6 ns
    is there any need to overclock nb/ht frequency???????
    now ht link/nb freq. is 2008mhz
  16. you can do it just small max 2100 it's ok .. i had 2400 with TA890GXE benckmark very sinificant score than 2000 but it dangerous ... can not stable or damage chipset mb .. because you had 1 RAMand your system stable ... i recommend STOP AT IT
