I have been trying to get to my goal of 2.88 on air cooling with my setup as I can't upgrade for another month or so.:sad: So at 342*8 everything is good. My E6400 is at 50-55 at full load(cpu-burn in and running rthdribl1_2 together, it gets both cores at 100%), Kingston 2*1Gb Value DDR 533 MHZ running at 684 MHZ on 2.0 volts 4,4,4,12, SUS P5B MOBO, EVGA 8800GTS SC 320 MB core is at 663 MHZ Mem is at Stock, 600 watt coolermaster PSU,19 Inch Widescreen LCD. And my next increase of 345*8 it won't post. So I have a option of upping the Ram volts to 2.1 or 2.2 and try again. Is that not going to damage my Ram or will it just not post? I am still fairly new Overclocking and all, So if that is not my only option can someone help me. I know this ram that I have is already performing higher than expected, can it go more? And once your ram is overclocked and things start to get too hot will it just shutdown? Adding volts and extra heat worries me. I know my board doesn't let me lock my ram and then run the cpu at whatever I want. But isn't there dividers or something besides the 1:1 ratio CPURAM. What about loosening the ram off 5,5,5,15?? I don't know how to do that part, so far it has been changing on its own. And when changing ram timings do they have to be specific sets of timings? I mean does it have to be 5,5,5,15 or is that as loose as it can go in order to sqeeze out some more mhz on the CPU Believe me the first chance I get I am buying some faster Ram:thumb: Thanx guys for your help.
