Thread: Advice on working with locked processors and FSB overclockin

    I have a question for you guys... what about turning down the memory frequency to 83% or 80% of the processor frequency on the EPoX 8RDA3+ to get higher overclocks on the CPU if the memory is too weak to go much beyond 200x2? Why isn't this more popular? Would this bump down to async and not function too well? Is it just something people avoid doing? I figure if I'm looking to go from 2.3GHz to 2.5GHz by taking my processor bus to 220 I wouldn't mind keeping the RAM at 183 (effective 366) MHz...

    This is mainly about diminishing returns. Athlons are memory-bandwidth limited, so sticking a 2.5ghz cpu on a under-200mhz bus won't give much improvement.

    I suggest you work on finding out why the memory is crapping out. What ram are you using, what timings, what is Vdimm at, have you considered a Vchipset or Vdimm volt-mod, etc.
