Im wondering which would be faster gaming wise: 880 Mhz 4-4-4-12 or 1066 Mhz 5-5-5-15. I know the difference wont be noticable, but still, which should i choose? What's the maximal safe voltage for those? They wont boot on default voltage setting or below 1.9V on 1066Mhz. I can manipulate voltage up to 3V but so far I was afraid to try anything more then 2.1V. Those values are importand for me because i want to make an overclock on my Q6600 and i want to do it safe :)

PC8500 is 1066Mhz it should say right on the side the voltage to run for it.

i would stick with the faster ram speed over the little of a diff latency speed.

dont OC that ram to 3v that *** will fry it. my DDR2 1066 says 2.1v for the 5-5-5-15
