Question about PC3200/PC2700 RAM and overclocking AMD 2500

Discussion in 'AMD Overclocking' started by ZigZag Master, Nov 25, 2003.

  1. Hey,

    I have 2 sticks of 512MB PC2700 Samsung (K4H560838D-TCB3)

    Someone mentioned that I may be able to run this at 200MHZ FSB on my Abit
    NF7-S mobo with unlocked AMD 2500.

    Any particualar settings I should be aware of to make this happen reliably?

    If I cant overclock the bus to 200MHZ, I am assuming I will have to upgrade
    to PC3200 RAM.

    Is CL3 OK or do I NEED CL2.5.....I dont need the best screaming performance,
    I just want it to work and hopefully get my Athlon to the 3200 level.

    I was thinking of 2 Kingston 512MB PC3200 CL3 modules as I can get them
    pretty cheaply from work.

    quite possibly vcore as cpu will be overclocked...
    maybe vdim as memory will be overclocked
    and set cas (CL) to 3.0
    as you state your barton is unlocked you could always up the multiplier to
    make up for any shortfall in fsb speed, besides it may only be a few mhz
    short of 200mhz - you have to try it and see
    You do not *need* cas 2.5 it is just marginally faster at shunting data
    about and you can pay quite a premium for it, although it may oc further if
    you set it to cas 3.0
