alright so my motherboards says it supports DDR2-800 can I put in 1066 and have it work at that speed or would it be useless....I have a intel 975Xbx2...I was wondering this because I should be able to overclock way past 3.2 Ghz with my set-up...if anyone could just take a whole look at my system so I can find what is tripping me up ...thanks
There are options to overclock the ram's speed. It should be located in the BIOS, but every motherboard is different. I have used ASUS's bios and it was simple, it was under the manual configurations for overclocking the ram's latency.
yes i have that and I mess with it quite often but I have no way of telling if its changing the frequency of it ...I mean i have xms2 ddr2-800 and there is a reference freq i have set @ 266 and the reg RAM freq @ 800 and then the timings which I have @ 5-5-5-18 ...I could put themat 4-4-4-12 but I have to drop to 667Mhz ...but my question is how am I supposed to clock over ?!?! its a complete mystery to me
