Are you using the orange ram slots? I wasn't able to get my OCZ 10Mhz above stock in the yellow slots, no matter the settings. Using the orange slots I was able to get them to 250Mhz.

Default Random Question for Rob

I don't know too much about computers in general. But i am looking at getting a computer with a 2.67GHz Dual Core Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 processor. I was wondering if you would have an idea of what timings and what volts I should use? If that question doesn't make any sense then just ignore it.

That's a sexy and very great performing cpu. I'm not sure on the timings or voltage, but I'm sure Rob could help you out. I've seen a 6700 go 3.6Ghz on air. For overclocking you'll need some good ram. If you want to overclock that is. Then you can talk about voltages, timings, fsb, etc.

It really depends on what ram you have...and whether it's performance or not. Here's what I would consider -good- ram settings/timings. If you have value ram, it may not be able to do this... but if you have any ram in the $300 range it should do well up until the last setting. You would want -good- ram for DDR2-1100.

PC2-5400 (DDR2-667) - 3-3-3-8 - 2.0v
PC2-6400 (DDR2-800)- 4-4-4-12 - 1.9v
PC2-7200 (DDR2-900) - 4-4-4-12 - 2.1v
PC2-8000 (DDR2-1000) - 4-4-4-12 - 2.4v
PC2-8000 (DDR2-1000) - 5-5-5-15 - 2.2v - 2.3v
PC2-8800 (DDR2-1100) - 5-5-5-15 - 2.5v

If you need advice for ram... throw a price range at us and we can figure something out easily enough.
