Tweaking RAM

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm running my CPU with an 8 multiplier at speeds of 400, 425, or 450.

Will i see better performance (or any difference at all) in gaming from having my ram at 1:1 or letting the ratio change?

800 @ 4-4-4-12 (w/ 1:1) (FSB 400)
850 @ 5-5-5-15 (w/ 1:1) (FSB 425)
900 @ 5-5-5-18 (w/ 1:1) (FSB 450)
1066 @ 6-6-6-18 (w/o 1:1) (FSB 400 or 425)

I'm not sure how to optimize the system.

Any help with the FSB/RAM ratio or perhaps the importance of timings vs ram clock speeds would be appreciated.

See below for the hardware details.

Maybe the difference would not even be noticeable. I keep seeing things about keeping the 1:1 with the CPU/RAM for Core2Duo Intels...

I've got plenty of RAM maybe the slower clock with quicker timings would be more effective at 1:1 then setting it to 1066.
