Overclocking question E7400 + DDR2 800 Tags: Memory Overclocking Last response: August 24, 2010 7:34 PM in Overclocking Share zxcvbnm44 August 21, 2010 6:17:47 PM Hey guys, real basic question, but I was just wondering if I should always try to run the memory at the fastest speed I can? The details are this: My current FSB is 266. The E7400 runs at it's standard 2.8Ghz with a clock multiplier at x10.5 (266MHz x 10.5 = 2.8GHz). However, I want to know if I have the option of running it at 400MHz x 7 so that the memory works at its rated speed (DDR2 800). My BIOS supports it, but is it safe?
