Seen a lot of q&a about ram being slower than cpu but not the other way around. simply, i upgraded my ram, getting ready to overclock cpu but before I do i want to memtest my new ram. So the question is, since my 1333 ram is downclocked to 1066 do I keep the timings the same? my bios with auto settings changes the timings drastically, i'm thinking it should stay the same, just want to confirm. G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBRM my processor is the e6700.

Lower speeds generally mean you can have lower timings, I'm running my 2GHz Ripjaws at 1333MHz, 7-7-7-20-1T, it's meant to run at 2000MHz 9-9-9-27-2T. If you want to ensure stability, just leave the timings.

for the time being I will. Once I get the swing of cpu overclocking I'll worry about messing with ram speeds. thanks for the tip.
