OC'ing RAM? Need help.

Recommended Posts

I just purchased CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) to replace my 1GB of "no-name" RAM.


I would like to OC it, as I've heard/read from many that it's great for overclocking.


However, I'm not exactly how to properly OC the RAM w/o causing any system problems/instabilities.


I'm completely familiar with all my BIOS settings, so instructions on how to OC the RAM should not be a problem for me to follow.


If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.


Things I should probably know are:

1) do I leave the RAM at it's native timing?

2) do I adjust just the mhz of the ram? (this causes other things to be raised automatically in my system, such as my CPU mhz)

3) do I need to adjust the freq of my CPU to keep up with the OC'd RAM?


..and any other even small detail people can pass on, would be extremely helpful, so I make sure I do not damage anything, and learn as much as possible about OC'ing.


Thanks in advance & cheers.
