aBsOlUt Posted October 23, 2008 Share Posted October 23, 2008 Hey guys, I have had my new system up and running for a month now. Everything has been working flawlessly with an exception of a few USB BSOD's that I think have to do with the crappy driver of my wireless usb stick. I have read numerous threads about people trying to reach 1600MHZ with that board and Intel tech support told me that this board is capable of that speed at 1.5V only. However, this RAM per the PDF, has been tested to reach 1600MHZ at 1.8V. I am not going to argue or waste my time about who is wrong or right because this is not the speed I want to reach. The default speed that the bios set was 1066MHZ. I am trying to optimize my system and I want to reach 1333MHZ so it syncs up nicely with my Q9550 1333FSB and speed up the system even more =) I am having second thoughts about it. I've read stories of people not being able to POST albeit most of them deal with trying to reach 1600MHZ mark. Is there anyone here that can confirm it is safe to try and set the speed at 1333MHZ and do a lot in here run at 1333MHZ with no problems? If it involves a lot of voltage changes I'd rather not to even though I have a bit of knowledge about overclocking I do not want to harm my system. Thanks a lot!
