i have had my opteron 165 @ 280 x 9 (2520 mhz, 9/10 divider) for a while now. i recently realized that i can also have it stable (overnight of dual prime 95 for both) at 315 x 8 (2520 mhz, 8/10 divider). i am using a DFI lanparty ultra-d motherboard with OCZ DDR500 ram (2 x 512MB). what im asking is which setting would be faster?

No significant difference.
Benchmark it with several benchmark programs testing RAM and CPU under both configurations.
Agree with RichPLS, benchmark it until death, my money is in 315*8
i did a few benchmarks and they are usually within 1% of each other, which is within margin of error. i think im going to leave it at 280 x 9, because i have been using it for a while and havnt had any problems.
and less stress on the memory...
u know wat i'm curious. maybe u might want to post the results? mem benches, cpu benches and wathaveyous.
