I have Dual Core E5700 3.0 and I plan to oc it to 4.0Ghz. For now I manage to oc to 3.6Ghz, where the multiplier is 12.5 and the FSB 288. And I set the RAM timing 6 6 6 16, the DRAM voltage 1.900 (auto is 1.800), CPU Vcore 1.29xx (auto is 1.28xx).
If I set the RAM timing to auto, it will be 4 4 4 12, but the maximum I can do is 3.33Ghz. Will it give me 4.0Ghz if i increase the timing? Which is better lower or higher?
I have Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L motherboard, 2.5GB RAM (mixed 2GB DDR2 800 and 512MB DDR2 667).
At 3.6Ghz I can maintain the cpu temperature 30'c - 37/38'c.
Is it right the lower the ratio/multiplier, the lower the temperature?
