I run a P4 2.4/512 at 2.88 (overclock 20%) on a P4P800 SE, very stable and
relatively cool (around 40 Celsius, during some games close to 60). I have
1GB of of 333/pc2700 on dual channel. Would the upgrade to pc3200/400 bring
any improvement to the performance of the system (FSB is running at 160)?

Any thoughts?
Thanks,
James

Your RAM is NOT running in dual channel while it has mis-matched RAM
modules. They must be IDENTICAL for dual channel operation.

I doubt you will be able to run it DDR 400 dual channel at FSB160 due to the
dividers.

They are absolutely identical 4 sticks of 256. And they are running in a
dual channel. They question was would the system benefit from a memory
upgrade from 333 to 400 Mhz.

Enter your bios menu. Check your ram settings. With a P4B/P800SE you have
options : DDR266, DDR333 and Auto.
No DDR400.

My fault, sorry.

There is a 4:5 divider, even that at boot up it says DDR333 dual channel.
FSB 160 would give you DDR400.

Here some benches at DDR 380 dual ch./

Everest:
3750MB/s read
1750MB/s write
103,7 ns latent

Not worth an upgrade in my opinion.

I don't think that it's worth the upgrade either. Why mess with a very
stable system.....you might regret it like I did many times......
