I need to know if running my Intel Q6600 with 4gb PC10660 DDR3 RAM will be OK?? Its just the CPU FSB is 266mhz & the ram ideally needs an FSB of 333Mhz. Currently i have kept my CPU FSB speed stock and made the DDR3 RAM Underclock to 1066Mhz, is this OK / safe? Does underclocking damage the RAM??
I have tried overclocking my CPU to 333Mhz FSB to the RAM runs at its Stock Speed of 1333Mhz but this causes my PC to stop booting / Posting. Dont know why it does this as I have OC'ed my CPU FSB to 333Mhz before, but i did alter the ratio so the RAM stayed at 1066Mhz. Set like that the machine booted fine. cant see why it would do ths as the RAM is PC10660 / 1333Mhz so in theory raising the CPU FSB to 333Mhz & keeping the DDR3 at stock 1333Mhz the machine should run.
Any ideas why i cant acheive this OC???
