Q9300 Overclocking

Mobo: Asus P5E (x38)
RAM: G Skill DDR2 1066Mhz
CPU: Q9300

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.

  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. i couldnt keep my q9300 cool enough when overclocking past 3.4, but it hit 3.4 on just 1.18vcore
