Tags: Overclocking RAM CPUs Last response: January 2, 2009 10:15 PM in Overclocking Share carman594 January 2, 2009 9:48:15 PM I just got my 8gb of Mushkin RAM and cant seem to run it at 4-4-4-12-2T with my CPU overclocked only 20 MHz. I can overclock the processor if I set my ram to 5-5-5-18-2T. Which is better, tighter RAM timings or higher CPU overclock?
