Dominator PC2-8500 Oc probs?


Recommended Posts

I have problem overclocking my dominators. It is version 1.2.

I have a Evga nForce 680i SLI, and a c2d E6850. The RAM's should run at 1066, but they don't. When i clock them to 1066 as they are made to run at the cumputer crashes. It can only drive at 800 Mhz. Even if i chance voltage to 2.2 V it still crashes. What can it be?

I can't overclock my CPU either.?


Please help
