    A little more info about your system you would be good. Just overclock it and find out for yourself. Every system is different. You might get a excellent increase or you might not. Give it ago and see what happens.

    Depends on your CPU and chipset.

    It's a simple question and deserves a simple answer. ;)

    You have PC2700 DDR which is designed to run at 333MHz. This means that if you place it in a system with a 166MHz FSB it will run at it's default speed of 333MHz because DDR always runs at double the FSB speed, hence the name.

    If you place it in a sytem with a 133MHz FSB it will either default to a speed of 266MHz and syncronize with the FSB or run at 366MHz out of sync with the FSB depending on your mobo and BIOS settings. Either way it will hamper it's performance potential.

    If you place it in a 200MHz FSB and attempt to syncronize it with the FSB it will likely crash the system since you are attempting to run it outside it's design speed.

    Typically you can tweak your RAM higher than it's design speed by increasing the voltage and adjusting the memory timings but this requires quite a bit of patience and trial and error technique with varying results in performance. For example, you may find after some extensive experimenting that it will run in sync with a FSB setting of 180MHz but won't reach any higher.

    What I recommend is matching your RAM to your system and running it in sync with the FSB. For more info read my other post in the other thread I made earlier today.

    It looks to me like Soulburner has a kick ass system but could really benefit by upgrading his RAM to XMS3500 and running it sync with his FSB. ;)

    3500 cannot run anywhere near 250mhz.

    I don't even know if 3700 can do that, maybe some have, but it may take 4000.

    Well I don't know but I thought I'd heard of people who have done it. Best I've gone with 3200 is 210MHz stable but I know ppl who have taken it to 230MHz.

    Hi ,

    I`ve taken my generic Winbond CH5 chips with heat spreaders to 220 .. I think they`ll take more and I`ll be pushing them , but awaiting a better stepping Barton 2500+ which is in the post :geek: This is @2.77 v ..will be interesting to see how they fare with 2.9v ( keeping @Cas 2.0 )

    ( just smacked down on another forum for criticising the lack of Epox support for the multiple 8RDA3+ problems :blah: )

    Ive had my WinBond PC3200 CH5 at 230FSB. 2.77V I plan to go higher, As soon as my mobo gets back

    BTW, you know HeatSpreaders really do nothing but make things look good. and Jack up the price.

    Hi ,

    I know the heat spreaders dont do much ..lol I`ve even seen the post on one site where they felt Cadbury`s chocolate heat spreaders would be just as good :laugh:

    Still all the big names in OC RAM have them , there must be some slight advantage...

    Mine cost me <10 anyway ( thermaltake)

    Not really, its all marketing. One company starting using them and their sales probably skyrocketed cuz it looked so cool, then everyone else had to start catching up and using heatspreaders too to make their product appeal to the market.
