I've been doing some research on overclocking, and have been tweaking my own set up. I noticed that it is commonly accepted that your FSB:DRAM ratio is ideally equal to 1. In order to do this you would need a low CPU multiplier and a high BCLK frequency in order to keep your CPU stable.
Currently I'm running:
i7 920 @ 3800mhz with 12gb ram at 1600mhz
FSB:DRAM ratio is 2:8 (200:800)
My main question is whether a high multiplier is better than a low multiplier. Does it matter at all?
You should try to run the highest stable BCLK, since that speeds up more than just the processor, and then adjust your multiplier accordingly.
