Using the word 'bump' gets your query back towards the top of the list & might help others to reply as messages quickly move down the list & onto the mext page where they can get overlooked. It shows that, although there is no advice how to reach a solution, it is still outstanding. I would imagine that Mark E is also interested in this topic. You can also 'bump' your own message to get others to see it ....


Hope this helps explain it.

Paul

Thanks Paul, sorry if I offended Mark

I don't really see the point. The speed gain will be small, the effort will be great (to get the settings just right), and if you raise the voltage there's a chance you damage the RAM anyway.

My advice is to leave well alone - you wouldn't notice the difference in normal use anyway.

I Take it that the link offered to you from
critic-al was not of any use to you?

no offence taken. I was just interested in the link, and by adding a comment it sends it to my postings which I can find it very easily later.

On the contrary, the link was very useful, and I have now managed to do this.

I Have HAD TO overclock the Ram as Gigabyte have published a notice on this motherboard stating that it will only support pc3200 by overclocking (not sure how it was working before doing this) but does explain some problems I have been having recently. Nice one gigabyte, remind me not to buy your products again.
