Hey guys,

So I was overclocking, and I forgot to unlink my FSB and RAM frequency (I think that's what I didn't do). I overclocked my i7 950 to 3.5GHz. I booted into windows and started torture testing it (It's been stable for about 30 hours now). I checked Speecy and my memory is saying this: 6.0GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 800MHz (8-9-9-24). This means it's running at 2400MHz right? It's OCZ GOLD 1600 ram.

How bad is this overclock? I stress-tested the ram and my system was perfectly stable for over 30 hours.. Should I keep this clock, or put it down lower? Also, it would be advised to lower the clock, and lower the timings. It would give better/same performance correct?

Also, I was having problems with the ram not working before, but I looked at the motherboard booklet and for my ram it said to pump the volts up to 1.65, and I did that and it's working perfectly.

No, it's running at 1600. DDR is dual-channel, so the speed is doubled from what you'll usually see.
