Yeah, Yeah. Another "Help Me Overclock" Thread.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As my specs show, I'm still using dated gear with my 805 limiting my memory speed from 400mhz to 333mhz due to the 533mhz FSB.

I recently went from one stick to two sticks of generic Sumsung crap-olla DDR400 memory since I hope to do an upgrade in September and didn't see the point in getting high performance DDR if I would be switching to DDR2 soon.

Now because of my motherboard's complete lack of overclock options I've been left to use ClockGen to bring my processor from 2.66Ghz to 3.20Ghz and that has worked in the past to at least let my memory hit 400mhz using timings of 2,3,3,5 but since that other stick went in I've had to back off to the stock timings of 3,4,4,8 in order to even get the rig to boot.

If I use ClockGen to overclock at all with the stock timings I get an instant lock up and must reboot.

Obviously I can't use tight timings or even the stock timings and overclock successfully so my question is this. If I were to make my timings even looser and successfully overclocked to where I was before, would the looser timings negate any increase in speed from 333mhz to 400mhz? Essentially, would the there be any increase in performance using say, a CAS of 4?

I'm still going to tinker with each setting a bit more as even one of those could the culprit but would like to know simply out of curiosity. I suppose I could have waited until I got home, messed and if successful run some benchmarks but hey, I'm bored here at work.

Cheers!

The loss in latency will not be as noticeable as the increase in cpu speed.

So essentially I'd be getting an increase in CPU speed, an increase in memory frequency but a drop in latency. So again my question is, would the increase in frequency balance out the drop in latency plus add to the overall speed?
