What should I clock my RAM at for good performance

I have a Q9550 OC'ed to 3.4Ghz, and the multi is 8.5x400. So I had to underclock my RAM to 800mhz to get a 1:1 ratio. My RAM is 1066 at default. Anyone have suggestions on how to go about raising my RAM clock speed meanwhile keeping the ratio as close to 1:1 as possible?

No point in increasing speed, the fsb will limit it. Just keep at a 1:1 ratio and tighten the timings or lower voltages.

yeah if possible lower the timings

timings are at 4-4-4-12, and i jus keep the voltage on auto.what should i go to?

Would it work if I set multi to 6.5x and the FSB to 533. That way I'd get about 3.4Ghz cpu speed, 1066mhz RAM @ 5-5-5-15, and a 1:1 ratio. i just don't know if my mobo would be able to handle the FSB.

or should i just stick to underclocking my RAM with 8.5x400, 800mhz RAM @ 4-4-4-12
