Hello, asus m4a785-m, kingston hyper x t1 1066, ocz agility 3 ssd, phenom 2 x4 960t, radeon hd 6870 2gb... i want to run the processor around 3.6-3.8 and have the timings down to the notch on the ram.. any help would be nice.
More aboutneed overclocking
cpu-z is showing 800mhz... and showing pc2 6400.. why not 8500?
Because you do not really have DDR2-1066 RAM. What you do have is RAM that left the assembly line as DDR2-800 RAM and was tested afterwards to run at -1066 speeds.
That is what the little SPD chips on the DIMM's is telling the BIOS and CPU-Z.
