Hi all!! Today I decided to overclock my computer!! I've a not good RAM! I mounted the Nirvana NV120 Premium and it seems to work well! I overclock to 3.4 ghz but I don't noticed any speed/fps improvement in Dolphin!!oO Is it normal?? I have 21 fps at 3.0 ghz and 21 at 3.4 ghz!!? I only changed FSB! Could the problem be the RAM?? It is a 2x2gb at 600 mhz!! Can you explain exactly how to overclock good my PC?? I read a lot of tutorial and Know enough things but i think to wrong something!:eyemove: Sorry for my bad english!! I don't speak it!!

well you have a Quad-Core, what is your multiplier? You should always have your fsb : ram 1 : 1.
Your problem is that your ram is to slow to keep a good ratio. 3400 : 4 = 850 you should overclock your ram to 850. If that wont work you should buy some new ram with higher speeds. Like 1066 or even faster.
Also from 3.0 ghz to 3.4 ghz is not a big improvement. With good cooling and new ram you could get 4.0 ghz or higher.

I don't know about others but i saw no increase in dolphin when i upgraded from Athlon X2 3GHz to Phenom II X3 3.2GHz... while in PCSX2 some games gained a whooping 10FPS!
maybe that's the limit of this emu as of now, or maybe my setting is just bad, i dunno :p

My multiplier is 8,5 and it was set 400x8,5= about 3400, yes i know my ram is very slow and when i set this config my ram should be at 895 mhz and obviously before boot screen appear a BSOD!! But i can't change the FSB:RAM report?? I didn't find the voice in bios!! what can I do to overclock my cpu instead buy a more powerful RAM??

Don't overclock it than. You are limited because of the bad ram. Try to overclock your ram but I doubt that will work. Mostly give BSODS. Just order some 4 gb ram kit.

I dont give a crap about how many views I get. I have an overclocked CPU.

I removed the link as its so offensive to some people

To everyone else i was just trying to illustrate how overclocking can improve dolphin performance and not trying to promote myself in any way

Omg, many Dolphin users overclocked there cpu and many other pc users overclock there pc. Maybe I was to hard on you but I just get mad if someone needs help and the reply doens't provide any help at all.
Gabryx my advise to you is that you buy some new RAM, I recommend OCZ because of the low price high quality value. You are now limited because of the poor RAM you have. Just look on the internet on Italian websites, good luck finding a good RAM kit.

Make sure you buy at least 1066 mhz. I would recommend you to buy even faster. That way you wont have any problems soon.

You were hard on me? You need to keep your opinions to yourself, you're not a moderator, someone with a Phenom II asked me how well dolphin ran on my overclocked Phenom II. if there was something wrong with my post then report it

Whatever, if you just stfu. This topic is ruined because of your not-helping comments. Try to say something usefull to the topic starter in stead of placing crap. I mean come on, this topic is about how to overclock etc. Not how well is Dolphin running on my oc'ed cpu. I just can't stand that.

Why don't you stfu? I was asked how well Dolphin performed on my overclocked cpu and i replied, no one asked for your stupid opinion. If anybody had said to me my reply bothered them I would have happily removed it, but to post a message with the intention of insulting and offending me is out of order

no i'm not expecting increase from the extra core but rather the higher ipc of phenom... but yeah, maybe i need to oc higher, how'd dolphin do on your cpu?
...and now im done.
