  • Memory overclocking

    I am going to buy the asus p4c800e-deluxe board soon, and it says it only supports ddr400 sdram. But, i found some very cheap ddr533 ram at komusa.com, and a someone told me that i can overclock my board to handle it.

    Can anyone hear confirm this? I'd feel much better about spending the extra money if i got a confirmation from someone who knows what they are talking about ;)

    Yes, it can be overclocked to 30%, however I would not recommend going over this.

    With the ASUS P4C800-E you have a unique option in BIOS that enables quick overclocking. It should automatically detect and optimize every relevant parameter.

    I normaly overclock on more than just the motherboard, so that's about all the help I can offer without going into great deal.

    If you do want to overclock more than the Motherboard, PM me and I will send more infor.

    [Edit: Remember, intel shouldn't go above 50c and AMD shouldn't go above 60c....unless you're TheDoctor and very lucky!

        You should be able to throw the 533ddr in there and run it at 400 with no problems. The general rule of thumb is that you can always buy memory thats rated faster but run at a slower speed. The only physical difference between certified 533 and 400 (assuming you have the same configuration of chips 8x32, 8x64, etc) would be what speed the memory failed at. With memory chips, they all start out on a single wafer, and the speed differences are determined by how many defects the chip has. The same thing applies to processors. AMD/Intel produces a wafer with hundreds of processors on them. They are tested seperately and then set at the factory to a certain speed based on how the chips perform.
