My 3200xl's hate voltage


Recommended Posts

I just got a pair of twinx1024 3200xl 3208 v1.2 because I've read all the new reviews about the phenomenonal speeds they are hitting. I then started the trial and error proccess with memtest86+. At the stock 2.75 volts the fastest I could go was 260mhz at 2.5-5-4-7 1T. I tried over volting up to 2.85 which was the highest my board could go (K8n Neo2) but I got more errors. I then slowly dropped the voltage and retested my speeds an max'd out at 290mhz at 2.5-5-4-7 1T but it only ran stable at 2.5V. Why is that?

wow, i dropped voltage to 2.5v, and i think that its just a little better than 2.85v (from 2.55v to 2.8v is more unstable than 2.5v and 2.85v... dont know why this happens :sigh!:)

 

edit: now 2.5v gave some problems, back to 2.85v :)
