higher ram mhz (frequency) results in weird result

my setup is e6750, p35-ds3r, 2x1 g.skill pair that uses d9, when i increase ram frequency, the performance increase is huge comparing to a change on the cpu clock speed. for example, i notice that when i play bf2142, the fps is alot higher when i have the ram running at 1080mhz (450x2.4), 3.15ghz (7x450) than when i have it set to 3.6ghz (8x450), ram running at 900mhz (450x2). is it because bf2142 is a game that uses alot of memory bandwidth? my ram won't be stable when it is running at 1000 or more mhz

  1. It seems that BF2142 benefits more from fast RAM than more processing power.
