Default Re: RAM Overclocking.

What is there to know?

All you need to do is leave it twice the speed of your FSB. Setting it any higher would place strain upon the memory controller located in the NB chip. (and is a bitch to get stable)

Lets take your FX 5200 chip. set the multi down, bump the fSB up. Your memory runs stock at 800 mhz. that is 400 fsb. Im not sure if your board can run this, but give it a shot. (note this is not even overclocking your memory. That speed should be plenty for that board/chip combo)
