Overclocking and RAM

Recommended Posts

Ok, please pardon my lack of intelligence on the subject of overclocking. I am new to this and have limited knowledge from what I have researched. My question is this: I have managed to overclock my Phenom II 555 BE processor to 3.6 MHZ through the muliplier and every thing seems stable. My HT link is set at 1600 MHZ. The problem is that I installed Corsair ram TWIN2X4096-8500C5 DDR2 which right now is set at 400 mhz. It says it is speced to run at 1066 mhz at 5,5,5, 15 latencies, but when I got into the bios and set the dram freq. to 533 mhz. the pc will not boot up. When it is set in the auto mode (400 mhz) everything runs fine. My question is this, should I even bother with trying to set the ram to run at 533 mhz. or am I doing something wrong here. I tried increased the voltage to 2.1 but no go. Also should I set the HT link higher or lower? Again I have googled the subject but can seem to find a good explanation.Win xp proAMD Phenom II X2 555 black editionNvidia 9800 GTXFX Geforce 8200 MotherboardCorsair Twin 2X4096 1066 DDR2Sound blaster x-fi

Nevermind the last post, I figured it out. Only thing is what should I set my NB VID at? The NB is running at 1800 mhz. Any ideas?
