View Full Version : I want to do OCZ.
11-04-04, 05:12 PM
They just recieved my RMA today (you may recall me bitching about my RAM not achieving 500MHz) and have informed me they'll be shipping me back 1 gig of OCZ PC3200 Platinum 2-2-2-5. Hooray! Now, if anyone here with a similar setup as me (I'm looking at Pain and Riptide here) can refresh my memory as to how these sticks perform, that'd be super. Whoopee!

Well I know circuitbreaker and myself have no problems getting 250x10 1:1 @ 2.5-3-3-8. I'm even doing it with a mere 2.7v.
I have Mushkin 1GB BH-6 i just bought 3500 90 Winchester and i was looking at buying this ram.Do you think this OCZ memory is better to overclock then the BH-6?

Well if there's any indicator AFAIK the PC3700EL (2-3-3-8) uses the same TCCD chips that the 3200EL uses. And that PC3700EL is some insane RAM. :)
So yes I would prefer the OCZ over the BH6 but I admittedly haven't had the chance to compare the two side by side.
Cool thnx for help i'm not looking for big overclock i'm happy getting to 3800 levels.I bought same case as ya getting good reviews over the net.
I just bought the combo deal from Monarch MSI K8Neo2,3500 Winchester and the 1GB of OCZ 3200 .I hope i can overclock to at least 3800 levels :)

That's only a 200MHz overclock right? That should be achievable without issue.
Yea cool i hope so that's why i bought this ram wish me luck .I'll ask next week for help :)

Yeah, you should be able to do that o/c no problem. I'd go for 2.5 if I were you, my 3500 runs 2.5 no problem.
Cool thnx ninja how did you get to 2.5.What settings did you use for HTT? I have the Thermalright XP-90 with a Panafl fan so i should be good for cooling.

He is probably doing 250x10 (CPU multi 10 x FSB 250) and has HTT set to 4x or 3x.

I can hit 250mhz 1:1 @ 2.5-3-3-6 ( 2.8v ) like riptide said, and usually its at 245x10 ( cpu doesnt like 2.5ghz ) But the most I booted @ with one stick 1:1 was 312. But...it wasnt exactly stable :p Still, 312mhz @ 2.5-4-4-11 aint bad :D

GSkill seems to be getting real popular with the extreme overclockers.
Ok so i put fsb at 240 drop HTT to 4X and use 10 multii and put timings on OCZ ram to 2.5-3-3-10 and i'm set at 3800 levels right.

The RAM will probably run higher than 240 but you'd have to drop the multi down to 9 and try for 266.
Ok but at 2.5-3-3-10 i should hit 240 easy right with 10 multi or will i have problems with those timings getting to 2.4.

240 shouldn't be a problem @ 2.5-3-3-10.
