Ram compatability / OC questions....

:confused:

I was wondering if there would be issues if I mixed a GB of Twinx 1024-3700 with Twinx 1024-4000 and tried to overclock it. As I understand it, both sticks should be set to the 3700's clock speed of 467mhz.

 

Asus P4P800 Deluxe

P4 3.2 800 FSB (478)

XP SP2

TWINX 1024-3700 XMS

TWINX 1024-4000 XMS

 

Any suggestions as to settings for this setup?

 

Thanx in advance......

There may be problems, yes. It's never recommended to mix modules of different part #s or revisions. That's why they have their TwinX kits, so that consumers can buy pre-matched sticks.

 

Now, they MAY run together fine, but it's unknown how they'll OC.

Wired,

 

Thanx for the info, but I think you misunderstood what I was saying. I have 2 512s of 3700 (Twinx). It seems to have been discontinued. I was wondering if a pair of 4000s could be OC'ed on the same board (in the proper slots)with the two 3700s? I don't know if this would be a problem?

 

If you could recommend some settings based on the 3700's clock speed it would be greatly appreciated. I'm new to overclocking, so be gentle.... (lol)

 

tks,

Crap,

 

I guess you got it. I will see if I can sell my 3700 and get 2gb of the 4000 then. Thanx a lot for the nfo Wired.

 

Psycho..... :(:

 

No, I think I understood it. To clarify, you want to use BOTH 3700s and 4000s on a board at the same time, correct?
