View Full Version : Time for new memory?

09-10-02, 02:52 AM

AS you can see, I have corsair pc2400H ram. 512megs of it.


I do have to buy a new power supply, but I'm also considering new memory. My question is if you think what is limited my overclocking on my 1.8a is my ram, or my msi mobo? I am suck at either 200 base ram speed and then overclocking the fsb by 35, which gives me 2.37. Or, if I jack up the ram I can reach 328 ram speed but only 2.21 on the cpu.

Think it'd really be worth it to buy some faster ram? Ram certainly isnt cheap, although I have concsidered waiting until the dual ddr boards come out and buying that along wth another corsair pc2400H. I figure that the added speed of the dual would be enough.

Hiya OTD.

IMHO i think you shoud get 2 sticks of pc2700 or 3200. If you wanna go faster than 200fsb, i suggest getting 2 sticks of pc3500. At least this way you'll have the ram for the dual DDR board you're waiting on ;)

About the psu, well........ that too is important. Check out newegg. You could find a good deal.

I'm stuck @ 190fsb. My pc3000 won't go any higher than 390Mhz even with xtra voltage. My cpu will go up to 2Ghz.
