I have this hardware:
CPU: E8400
Mobo: P5Q
RAM: Corsair XMS2 CM2X1024-6400C4, G.Skill XMS2 F2-6400CL4-2GBPI-B

I got it to go as far as 483*9 with 1:1 ratio and default memory timings
but I think I have a problem, the cpu-z program latency.exe is showing me that my latency to memory is 252 cycles, but with my old cpu (E6750) I had 237 cycles at an even lower FSB of 475 (also 1:1 default timings), shouldn't it go the other way around and number of cycles should be decreasing ?

I also tried to set my "performance level" FSB setting to 9 but the system wouldn't boot unless the memory is able to work at CAS 4 (but the G.Skill's aren't capable), so I am stuck with performance level 10, I reckon this setting has the most impact on memory latency so I figured it's important to mention, I am using the 333 Mhz FSB Strap (now and before)

when I try to go 500 FSB I get instability, I have seen people get 510 FSB out of this mobo, and while on the subject of FSB: I think I have tried everything possible: Strap to 400, performance level to 11 and 12, increasing NB voltage, increasing Termination voltage, nothing helps make it stable at over 480 FSB (funny thing is that in prime95 it is stable but in other programs it is not, go figure xD)

I hope I didn't leave anything out, thanks for your input
