I have 2 1 gb sticks of pny xlr8 ram 1066-5-5-5-15 and I didnt realize that to have a 1:1 ratio with teh cpus fsb you have to set it to 533. My cpu is q6600 oc to 3 ghz so it is set to 333 mghz fsb. I was wondering if I wasted my money since I currently have my ram set to have a 1:1 ratio with the cpus fsb(533 oc to 667) and timings of 3-3-3-9.
You could also drop the multiplier on your cpu and run your fsb speed up to 500fsb, keep your ram at 1:1 and probably be able to run your ram at DDR2-1000 with 4-4-4-12 timings. But i'm not sure if a BadAxe2 is capable of that. Either way you didn't waste money on your ram, its right in line with the rest of your system. Getting DDR2-667 would be like putting 8" wide tires on a Dodge Viper.
