I need a bit of assistance or advice on how to or if i can even OC my 8 Gb DDR3 dual channel Corsair XMS3 1600 MHZ CAS 9 DHX ram to 2000 MHZ.
I am running the ram on a 790i FTW DIGITAL PWM from EVGA with a Q6600 at 3.6 Ghz. I have the ram at 1800 Mhz with timings of 8-8-8-24-T2
with a voltage of 1.9 STABLE. Of course, my board is rated for DDR3 2000 MHZ ram with EPP 2.0. But, ive seen it done with none EPP G skill 1600 mhz ram as well.
if any of you know the right voltage, Timings, or any other clocks on my other components that i should change to get to 2000, please explain and ask others if they'd know as well.
I know if you say "whats the use for Ocing that DDR3? you wont get any performance benefits due to the bottlenecking of the old and ancient FSB bandwidth.". I am only doing this to see if i can actually reach 2000 mhz without having a memory error/BSOD that screws up my system.
