    This is my computer's hardware:

    [Click here to view the link] (CPU)
    [Click here to view the link] (MOBO)
    [Click here to view the link] (RAM) (2x)

    I needed to change my RAM's voltage to 2.1v but I can't seem to do that.
    I bumped up my processor speed to 3.17 GHZ with a FSB of 333, v1.45.
    I changed my RAM timings from 5-5-5-15 to 5-4-4-15.

    Can someone tell me how to correctly set my voltage on the RAM and tell me if the overclock is alright. It seems stable but I'm going to run some tests. I've successfully overclocked before.

    you know 1.45vcore for that CPU is not safe? 45nm is 1.3625 and 65nm is 1.5v

    the timings won't help the OC at all, will help with the stability and bandwidth

    I would set the max voltage and try 5-5-5-15 and pump it up some mhz and see how it goes

    Burn memtest iso onto a cd and boot it and it will test the ram for stablility

    Ouch. I just changed it v1.3625. Would making the voltages too high cause any damage? The only reason the timings are like that is because thats what it says to on OCZ's website.

    Well how long was it running at 1.4? Because it will pretty burn the chip out but if it wasn't too long like couple months, then no worrys
