Severely Underclocking PC8500 (1066) RAM and Timing Tags: Memory RAM Motherboards Last response: August 2, 2007 12:55 AM in Memory Share Peppermonkey August 1, 2007 11:31:21 PM Alright, I just bought some new RAM for my aging system. Since I am planning to upgrade my motherboard and CPU within 4-5 months I decided to get RAM that would match the system I plan on eventually getting. I ended up getting 2 Gigs of DDR2 PC8500 (1066). My motherboard only supports PC4200 (533), so I am severely underclocking my RAM. Does this allow for me to tighten the timing on the RAM, or should I just leave it at 4-4-4-12 (default for 533)? Any suggestions on how aggressive I should be?
