Mobo: Asus P5E (x38)
RAM: G Skill DDR2 1066Mhz
I am currently OC'ing my q9300 to 3.0ghz (400fsb)
I am now looking to OC it past 3ghz but when i change my fsb to anything above 400 my ram settings cahnge.
I plan to OC my cpu to 3.5GHz (467fsb)
At that setting the closest the D ram can get to its intended 1066MHz is 1122MHz or 934MHz.
Will my ram be able to run at 1122MHz?
I would like to know as much as possible before i start adjusting values.

It depends on how lucky you are, just run it at 934, not a huge difference between 1122mhz to 934 if you put the timings accordingly

Thnx! Oh, and the timings at 1066MHz is 5-5-5-15 (standard)... so if i run the same timings at 934 will it work?

Should. I never overclock RAM. I always run 1:1. The only real world results of OC'ing RAM I have seen is a little less stability.

i couldnt keep my q9300 cool enough when overclocking past 3.4, but it hit 3.4 on just 1.18vcore
