  How Do People Do This?

I was looking at the the overclocking world record database and I searched my CPU.

Here is what I found:
http://www.ripping.org/database.php?cpuid=11

There are people able to get ridiculous speeds using dry ice and water. There are also some speeds which look like they were done using just air.

If you click on the "green checkmarks" it takes you to a CPU validation screen. I notice that many of these people are running they RAM at pretty low speeds. ie. 225 MHz, 192.9 MHz, 135.2 MHz etc. The FSB: DRAM ratios are quite high.

My ram speed for my overclock is much higher then them. My RAM speed is currently at 240mhz. Am I doing something wrong?! I thought the idea was to have a high RAM speed along with a high CPU speed.

Any input would be appreciated.

Overclocking RAM too much will cause instability at the least and BSOD's, freeze-ups, reboots, data corruption, etc., at the worst.

One of my computers is dedicated to running Folding @ Home 24/7. It runs an AMD 3200+ (Socket 754 - 2.2GHz) @ 2.8GHz using the stock cooler. With the CPU operating at about 80 - 85% of capacity, the temperature stays around 115F/46C. The RAM runs @ 200.3MHz according to CPU-Z. I don't care to spend any money on aftermarket cooling to allow this set-up to run faster.

They are just going for the Highest FSB they can get.They dont care about ram speed

I got bored of overclocking ages ago. I'll get a speed i think sufficient, and that's that.
I don't believe in posting marks & scores anymore. It doesn't prove a thing really.
I can't even be bothered posting on 3DMark or even use it. I think it's a useless benchmark.
Games are the best benchmark. If it plays smooth, then I'm sorted. If it lags or jitters,
then I know something needs upgraded.

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

I couldnt agree with you more, as long as the program, whether it be editing or gaming, works sufficient enough for you, then benchmarks dont mean crap, but if everyone thinks like that we'd prolly get a hard time judging how a system works.. one thing i like about http://www.yougamers.com though is that it uses benchmarks gathered from 3dmark system rigs around the world, compares it to your system, and then places a marker on a scale to see how big of a gap you get from the publishers system recommendations etc.. check it out.. its not a perfect match, but i do think its decently accurate

Yea I'm a member of Yougamers. But even game developers recommendations mean
jack lo. Remember crysis? 8800 was a standard. When I let the game choose my setttings,
they were all set to ultra, and the game didn't run worth as**t!

I still prefer my method.
