Hi,

i can get my E8400 @3.87ghz with stock cooling.,
however i want to fine tune it to max performance then reinstall windows.

I have a Gigabytes P35-ds3 with E8400.
I just get the performance gain from the cpu, but i just don' tknow how fast my ram can go.

I actually didn't do anything to the ram yet, i want to overclock that too.
but i just don't know how.

I am sure there is people using the same setup as i do.
can anyone refer me to posts or website about how to overclock the ram or how should i overclock my cpu anyways. cuz i just chnaged to AC Freezer 7 pro, i guess i can bump a bit more.

thanks

It looks to me like your RAM already is slightly overclocked. Anyway, overclocking your RAM isn't going to provide much tangible benefit.

prob not "alot" more left w/o a lot of testing/tweaking..etc.

I got 3.8 w/ stability and not even thinking about what i was doing..


But even 3.9 is causing me some grief. :p But thats all part of the game isn't it..

Hours n hours of stress testing to only get an error after 6 h, 8 h...etc and having to go back to drawing board...

I was noticing the same thing but just to ask, What is the stock speed of your Ram? 800, 1000, 1066?
If you are using 800Mhz, you are already oc'ing it if you are using a 1:1 ratio. 9x430=3870, 430x2=860Mhz on your ram. If 1000 then you have some headroom.
