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?

  1. Best answer
    The 1.8V may be required to run at 1333 Mhz. There is a tiny performance improvement from going to 1333 Mhz. but typically less than 1% in system performance. Be sure that your mobo/CPU can deal with 1.8V RAM voltage before trying this or you could damge them.
  2. This is the list of voltages my board can do.

    CPU base clock: From 100 MHz to 600 Hz in 1 MHz steps
    PCI Express clock: From 90 MHz to 150 MHz in 1 MHz steps
    CPU voltage: From 0.5000 V to 1.900 V in 0.0125 V steps
    VTT (memory controller, QPI, and L3 memory cache) voltage: From 1.075 V to 2.015 V in 0.020 V steps
    CPU clock voltage: From 700 mV to 1000 mV in 100 mV steps
    CPU clock multiplier (PLL) voltage: From 1.300 V to 2.520 V in 0.020 V steps
    PCI Express voltage: From 1.000 V to 2.140 V in 0.020 V steps
    PCI Express clock voltage: 700 mV to 1000 mV in 100 mV steps
    QPI PLL voltage: From 0.800 V to 1.600 V in 0.020 V steps
    North bridge (ICH) voltage: From 0.920 V to 2.380 V in 0.020 V steps
    South bridge (IOH) voltage: From 1.000 V to 2.000 V in 0.020 V steps
    Memory voltage: From 1.300 V to 2.600 V in 0.020 V steps
    Memory termination voltage: From 0.500 V to 1.205 V in 0.025 V steps
    Memory data reference voltage (per channel): From 0.680 V to 0.950 V in 0.010 V steps
    Memory address reference voltage (per channel): From 0.690 V to 0.950 V in 0.010 V steps
  3. Dude, you put it at whatever it says on the sticker, not whatever you feel like putting it at.

  5. I hope you don't have a sandy bridge cpu. If so 1.8v will fry the cpu.
