    Hah! Who runs underclocked? :confused:

    Yes this is the overclockin' forum pal so it's natural to go a step above the norm (and this is an answer comin' from someone who spends most of his time tryin' to get a few extra points outa synthetic benchtests when it's turned on? :confused: )

    To a degree. There's also the thing that your RAM is going to have a lot of headroom, so there's little chance of something going wrong, plus if you get better RAM than your system can handle / efficiently use, then it's also a future proofing thing...

    well maybe my mistake of buying 466mhz 3700 ram will futureproof me all the way to a p4 spec rather than AMD. hehe
    as i see it ... i gambled for the best and took a blow for the worse. i'm definately taking your advice very seriously.

    Right I'm somewhat confused. As you can see from my signature I have Celeron 2.0 and 2*256 PC4000 DDR. My friend give me the PC4000 ram for 20 and exchange for my Crucial 512 2700 DDR. :devil win

    He doesn't use his computer other than listening to music and playing diablo II. :/

    Anyway...

    Soulburner was explaining how a processer must be overclocked to match the fsb of the ram. Although it confuses me... can you explain what I need to overclock my processor to match the RAM. I understand that that might not be possible although can you explain how far I would need to clock it if it where possible.

    Thanks

    Ok he likely sold ya them either because his mobo was havin' issues with them or because he found out that he just couldn't use the speed and put up with the poor timings that come with them. Overclockin' ya CPU involves raisin' the FSB thru ya BIOS but whether ya get the full benefits of that memory only you can find out by tryin though likely ya won't.

    PC3700=DDR466=233mhz
    this sounds interesting, guys can you tell me how to calculate it?? I didn't know that you guys are following some sort of rules. Ohh man! I want to learn more about overclcoking. thanks,,,

    So how is it in PC2700 then?

    PC2700=DDR333=166mhz

    DDR speed is 2x that of the actual frequency, hence the name double data rate.

    PCXXXX is the rating it gets for maximum theoretical bandwidth. It is 8x the DDR speed (8 bits per byte).

    So my Celeron is 400MHz and my ram is 500MHz... that means my ram is actually only going at 400MHz because the processor is limiting it? Unless I overclocked the Celeron to match the memory?

    Thanks

    No. Ya Celeron runs at 100MHz FSB (QDR400) and that memory is rated for 250MHz (DDR500) so ya'd have to jack ya FSB to over 233MHz to be gettin' close to the memory (highly unlikely), this is 200MHz (QDR800) P4C territory.

    Thanks for clearing that up :)

    Does the memory run that speed or is the Celeron holding it back? If I leave the Celeron at it's original clockspeed I can get the memory to "run" at 200MHz (333) although is it actually running at that or is the Celeron holding it at 100Mhz?
