OC 960 1066 or 1333 what speed is better??

I have 6Gb 1333 Ram 8-8-8-20. Do i get better performance leaving it run at 1066 or turning it up to 1333 which is it speed? I know it runs at 1.5v but is labeled at 1.8. What are the best settings for it and voltage? What timings should i put it at?

    If the ram is rated to run at 8-8-8-20 1333 then that would be the settings you should be using it at, and yes, that, depending on the application, should give you a small speed improvement, nothing you would likely notice other than in benchmarks though.

    Could you post a link to the ram, as a 1366 kit with a 1.8 voltage setting sounds strange since the max recommended is 1.65.
  2. The best settings for your ram are the settings listed on the sticker, on the ram.....

    If it's a sandy bridge platform, were guessing here cause you failed to mention what platform it is, then you have the wrong ram and you can burn up your cpu.
  3. Sorry it is a i7-960 1366, RAM is Crucial Balistix 1333 1.8v 8-8-8-20 Gigabyte x58 USB3 2 x 120Gb OCZ Revodrive PCIe SSD and MSI 5870
