Hey I have 4GB OCZ ram stock at 2.1v is 5-4-4-15-t2. (CPUz says 2v, ram package says 2.1)

currently I have then set to 333 with a 25% OC (making 832Mhz) timmings 5-5-5-15-24 (20 seemed unstable) 2.1v

Would this or 1000Mhz 6-6-6-18-24 2.1v be better?

I have yet to try the 1000Mhz setting yet is there anything I should do to make sure its stable?

I am guessing this will be stable as the times are almost equal 5/800 ~ 6/1000 etc. does this work or even make since with ram?

Wait wait! Check first if both sticks are in your mobo's QVL. That's usually accessible from the mobo's product page online.

There will be an upper limit for the frequency at which the modules can run. If it's greater than 1000, then you're in luck. If not, you'll never reach 1000, no mater the timings.
Even though, as you said, 5/800 ~ 6/1000, it doesn't mean they can actually run at 1000MHz. Even if, let's say, you set the timings to 10/1000, which would be worse that 5/800, they will still not run.

Thanks good to know, I have had them up to 880 I know, never pushed beyond that. Is the upper limit caused by a n electronic capture rate or something? Ill try to google and see if i can learn more about how ram works.
