Hi all, at the moment I've only got value ram in my pc so for overclocking past the 1333mhz mark isn't very good and it gets unstable after like 1360mhz. So I try not to go over around 1340mhz.

Afte looking in the MIT of my bios I found that I can under clock the ram to 1066mhz then increase the fsb a lot higher.
So my question is am I better off keeping it a factory 1333mhz speed or will it be better to lower the ram speed then reincrease using the fsb?

Also what type of difference does lowering the timings make? I noticed the stock is 9-9-9-24 but when I lower the ram speed and increase the fsb it changes to 7-7-7-20.


If u need more info bout my specs then it should be in my signature thing below... If it ain't there then ask :-)

With your CPU, I wouldn't bother messing with the FSB.

You are better off with factory specs on the RAM. You would have to get real aggressive with your overclock to notice a difference in anything but benchmarks.

Not worth it IMHO.
