I would like to overclock my Q6600 to 3Ghz, which from what I've seen is a very reasonable goal. I know about cooling and airflow and whatnot. Right now I am running at 266.7Mhz with a multiplier of 6. Im assuming the multiplier will fluxuate from the load put on the machine, so that is fine, but what I'm wondering about pertains to my memory. I have 2Gb of DDR2 - 800 (2 x 1Gb). Right now they are each running at 400Mhz.
From what I've heard it is best to run your system in a 1:1 ratio from your cpu to memory, right now Im running at 2:3. As I increase the bus speed on the processor it will come closer to being at a 1:1 ratio. I think I will end up with the processor at 333. If I want to be at 1:1, would it be beneficial to lower my memory to be at 333 also or would that just be a waste? What is your take.
