i know theres a lot of threads about this but, i got a few quick questions, since i gotta set up my memory because instead of running at 533mhz its at 400mhz so i went into cpuz and it has the timings and everything for it, so im thinking ima just set it up like that in bios, but i can always mess with it to see if i can get lower timings, now since ima overclock my cpu, do the timings have any effect on the cpu, can it make the ram unstable once i overclock my cpu?

what i was thinking was to use the timings the cpuz provided for 533mhz
then over clock my cpu to a stable stage which i believe is somewhere around 3.8ghz will have to find out and test again
and then if everything is stable try and lower the memory timings

does this sound good?
