I currently own a e2160 but im planning on upgrading to a e8400 processor soon, these are my current specs (except for the vid card which im still waiting for to be delivered) e2160 @ 2.9ghz 320GB Samsung Drive Biostar 945GC Micro 775 2 gigs of generic RAM 667 (Cybertech brand) (timings 4-4-4-12) running 1:1 with cpu XFX 8800gt Zalman edition My motherboard allows changes in FSB (it has to be a 1066 cpu other wise it chokes easily) but no changes in voltages so I'm limited to what I can reach on stock voltages. The motherboard accepts 667 ram, but ive overclocked it and it can easily reach 800 mhz 24/7. Also the motherboard allows to change ram timings and voltage up to 2.2 volts. The questiong is the following. Since I'm trying to overclock the E8400 to at least 3.6 ghz (fsb of 400) would I benefit from using ddr800 sticks on my pc? if I run a 1:1 separator the ram would be running within its specs. Can I do that? Will I achieve a better overclock if I do? thanks for the replies.
