Im trying to Oc my computer with this settings given me by DerekT a while ago, they used to work but now for some reason they don't.


ASUS Striker Extreme


4 Gb Corsair Dominator (1066)


8800 gtx OC2 water cooled with a zalman water block


Q6600 G0 Version




Download and install the 1303 BIOS. I have had friends lose their overclock stability with newer flashes. Then they come back to me and I tell them not to flash unless they call me.


Multiplier = 9

FSB = 333

DRAM = Unlinked and set to 667Mhz


Memory Timing


FSB - Memory Clock Mode: Unlinked

CPU FSB: 333

CPU Multi: 9

DDR FSB: 667

tCL: 5

tRCD: 5

tRP: 5

tRAS: 15


Advanced Memory Settings

tRRD: Auto

tRC: Auto

tWR: Auto

tWTR: Auto

tREF: Auto

Async Latency: Auto



CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled

PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

MCP PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

SATA Spread Spectrum: Disabled

LDT Spread Spectrum: Disabled


CPU Internal Thermal Control: Enabled

Limit CPUID MaxVal: Enabled

Enhanced C1 (C1E): Enabled

Execute Disable Bit: Enabled

Virtualization Technology: Enabled

Enhanced Intel Speedstep Tech: Enabled

LDT Frequency: 5x


PCIEX16_1 Frequency (Mhz): 101

PCIEX16_2 Frequency (Mhz): 101

PCIEX16_3 Frequency (Mhz): 101

SPP<->MCP Ref Clock, Mhz: 201



-- Voltages --


Vcore = 1.30 - 1.35v

Vdimm (DRAM Voltage) = 2.2v

1.2v HT: 1.3v

NB Vcore: 1.35v

SB Vcore: 1.50v

CPU VTT: 1.30v


This will give you 3.0Ghz and you can test the overclock with Prime95:




You have set your DRAM low to exclude it from the overclock as a variable in stability. Test at 3.0Ghz for ~8 hours.


After Putting all the settings given and save and exit, my screen just turns off (like sleeping and the light just blinks) so i force restart to see if i can get something going and nothing happens. So i have to click on the CMOS button on the motherboard to erase it and then it works (with the default settings not oced). When i was trying to make the oc settings work i looked at the striker LCD poster to see what error was giving me, so i read DET DRAM ERROR(im guessing somethings wrong with the RAM settings or Voltages) anyway with stock settings ( at 800 not running em at 1066) the 4 gb ram works flawlessly, so anyone knows how to fix it DET DRAM ERROR?? and how do I make these settings work so i can OC it?
