    He already gave all that info. And whats his "ram name" got to do with the price of tea in China?

    Maybe you should stop posting one liners and following soulburner around. It shows your age and intellect. 12-15 I would presume.

    Chez:cheers:

    Um, I believe that's what I said, maybe I need to reword my post...?

    drxploder: The last thing I want to do is discourage anyone from a very rewarding hobby. I'm not personally very familiar with that mobo and BIOS you have and can't help you much. My advice to read and ask specific questions is good advice and I certainly didn't mean to blow you off.

    When it comes to overclocking potential of a particular CPU the single most important factor is the motherboard you are running on. It's a relatively inexpensive component but is critical to your system since everything else both plugs into it and communicates through it. Most of the answers you seek probably lie in learning the BIOS and the motherboard's capability. This is where you should start.

    There are a lot of overzealous people in online forums who are obsessed with their own opinions and personal misconceptions. I'm often as guilty as the next person of even bothering to read their posts.

    We are here to share ideas and learn from each other.

    from your original post, it sounded like you thought the best way for him to OC was to leave the multi. at stock and just raise the fsb ...the way you would OC an Intel system

    there was no reason for wiggo to not take your original post at face value

    [b]Raise the FSB instead....it will give loads better performance than the multiplier.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    If you run Corsair RAM or any DDR for that matter there is some very good info on their website about setting RAM speed/timings and such.

    3 is the slowest. CAS latency is the clock cycles it take to acess the RAM, and i think JEDEC standards are 3 at the most, but but i remember that standard SDRAM had some pretty nasty timings, so i could be wrong :confused: :confused:
