    I had my system overclocked with the following settings:

    3700 SD CPU at 241 x 11 (1.425V)
    2gb Geil Value RAM on 333Mhz divider / 2.5 4 4 7 timings

    I've now got a 1gb kit of OCZ Premium RAM and I need advice on how to overclock the system to its best potential.

    The RAM runs stable at 2 3 3 6 timings.

    Could somebody please explain how to calculate the optimum other memory settings, and what divider I should run on to get my CPU running at 2.6 GHz + again.

    Cheers chaps.

    If it were me i would try it at the same timings as the Geil but on a 1 to 1 "divider". OCZ is good memory and should be cabable of running that speed with slightly looser timings. Failing that run the same divider you are using now (i assume that keeps the memory speed to around 200mhz on the Geil) and run the OCZ on it's stock timings.

    Personally i am a fan of higher speed slightly looser timings with no divider.
