well if you did FSB boosts when you overclocked your 2600k, you already did. boostin the FSB overclocks everything.

fsb stands for front side bus. turbo boost could be anything. the newer i7s have a "turbo' feature where if only one core s being used, the chip overclocks itself. "turbo" is such an overused and misused word though i'm not sure which instance you are referring to.

Just put the memory multiplier on 1866Mhz and see if they run stable. If not, more voltage or loosen timings.

this ^

And loosen means HIGHER numbers and tighten means LOWER numbers.

So I have 1866MHz 9-9-9--24 and set them to 2133 9-10-9-27 --> so it's looser... (same voltage tho...)

And if they are 1.5V you can go to 1.65V with no problems. I would not go higher than 1.65V

That said, you WILL NOT see any improvement between 1600-1866-2133-2400-etc... for gaming... Only if you run a benchmark or Super Pi or something it will show you it's faster... but in real life you won't feel a thing wink.gif

That's because of the i3/5/7 technology... (easy saying)

If you want more fps in games, buy better graphics card.

1333MHz --> 1600MHz is an increase in FPS (5-10fps)
1600-1866 = just another 3fps or so tongue.gif
1866 and above is no gain at all...
