12GB Corsair on Evga x58


Recommended Posts

It's my first time building a computer and I would need some advices.

Basically I got evga x58 classified with i7 920 and 2 sets of TR3X6G1600C8D G


I would like to run 12gb at 1600, so I would need help on how to OC and get my mobo to run these sticks at 1600.

From what I read, I have two options.

Running I7 920 at 4.0 Ghz or at 3.2 in order to get 1600mhz.

Correct me if im wrong, but I can't run 3.6 Ghz, since the block speed will be 180mhz and that gives me 1440mhz for RAM (180x8=1440)

For now I don't want to go till 4ghz, since im just starting...

So my best option is: Base Clock 160 x 10=1600 wich gives me 160x20=3.2Ghz


Correct me if i'm wrong, i still have some reading to do, so I would like to know if I'm going in the right direction...
