OC: P4 2.8 FSB Ram @320

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.overclocking (More info?)

My p4 2.8 will OC to 3.2 with ram @ 320. Would there be more performance if
ram was slowed to 266 and the chip pushed up 3.4 or so?

    Have you established that it is the RAM, and not the CPU, that is limiting
    now?

    what P4?

    2800 (14 X 200)
    2800 (21 X 133.33)

    where do you get 320mhz for the memory?

    Right, P4C 800 MHz or 200 MHz x 4 = 800 MHz
    Or to be simple, above. 200 X the multiplier.

    It's not really 133.33 ,, kind of Odd. it's something like 133.3333337 or
    something
    And sometimes 133.25 something. 133.2533 or 133.25933.
    I still like something like 133 x 2 = 266 or 166 x 2 (166.5 x 2) Also 200 x
    2 = 400
    But I'm sure most of you don't understand this, if your too much a Intel
    Fan.
    Oops, I gave it away.

    Intel's are still nice, I'm not saying they are not.

    In the bios settings, the board is Asus P4P800, ram settings have Auto, 266,
    320 and 400. CPU is set to manual , and at 225 right now.

    What memory and timmings youre running ?

    It's best if you try both configs with some benchs and then see what's
    faster in your config.
