    Default OCZ Blade DDR2 RAM Overclocking question.

    Hi everyone.

    A few weeks ago, I got 4GB of OCZ Blade PC2-9200 DDR2 RAM rated at 1150MHz @ 1.8 Volts and I managed to overclock them to 1200MHz at 1.88v (from 1.80v). I was wondering, if I grab another pair to make them 8GB, would the overclock still be stable for four modules at 1.88v (from two)?


    Thanks.

    Hard to say if they'll be stable at those exact settings. Typically 4 sticks won't be as easily to overclock/stable as 2 sticks for DDR2. It is possible, but don't bank on it. If you want/need the extra memory though, you could backing the clocks down a bit to ensure stability with a minor performance sacrifice.

    Ordered some more memory a day before your reply. Should arrive tomorrow hopefully. Hope the outcome is as I would like. Have been thinking twice ever since...

    Ok. Just got in and my packaged arrived this morning. Plugged in an additional 4GB. Upped the voltage by one increment at a time upto 1.93v and stopped there. The EVP for these modules is 1.85v. Kept getting bluescreens so I stopped. Didn't want to render these modules dead.

    So, all in all, I even had great difficulty trying to even run 4 sticks at 1.80v alone. Back down to 4GB. Anyone want to by some OCZ Blades? Lol.

    I'm just hoping the new sticks ain't DOA. Will test them during the weekend or something. The thing I don't get is that the first time I booted up, I got a bluescreen. So I up the voltage for the ram by one increment. I restart and Windows Vista loads. I run Prime95 for an hour (I know, I should normally do it between 6-24 hours), no errors or warnings. I shut down, grab a munch and boot up again... Bluescreen. Up the voltage a few times, lowered the bus speed, lowered the ram speed... bluescreen. So I had no option but to pull them out...
