TWIN2X2048-8888 Do you overclock in the BIOS?

Recommended Posts

The package says 1111MHz but my BIOS says 800 when it boots up. Do I need to chage the BIOS setting to 1111MHz in order to get the full use out of the RAM or will that damage it? It also says 2.4v but the default voltage is no where near that. Do I need to adjust that as well? Thanks in advance.

You will be limited by your CPU to DDR1066 but you can easily get the full speed by overclocking your CPU. To be at DDR1066 have the following settings:


DDR2 SDRAM Clock: Manually set to 1066MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 4T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 4T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 4T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 12T

DRAM Voltage: 2.3v (If its not stable at 2.3v up it to 2.4v but go no higher)


After setting those in your BIOS please test with Memtest. How To Use Memtest.
