I'm wondering what the best e2180 overclocking combination would be with the ram. I'm looking for a 3.2-3.4 Ghz overclock out of it. I'm getting ddr2-800 Crucial Ballistix 4-4-4-12 ram btw.
Would it work best to downclock the ram to 667, run a 1:1 ratio with the cpu, 333X10=3.33Ghz, and try to tighten the timings? Or to overclock the ram, and do a 3:2 ratio? Which would yield better performance?
Heard that core2duos don't really benefit from the high frequency as much as they do from tighter timings. I could be wrong but the difference between 667 and 800 ram is not noticeable in C2D systems. However, tighter timings would be really increase the performance.
