Alright so let me see if I understand this:
The Q6600 has a 9 multiplier and a 266 FSB making it 9*266=2394 (roughly 2400) right? Is the multiplier locked?
To get it where I want (3 GHz) I would have to bump it up to 9*333fsb correct? Will the memory speed jump with it?
And to run it 1:1 ratio (is it better that way? more stable?) I need to overclock all the way to 3600mhz meaning 9*400fsb, but the ram runs at 800mhz....I know I'm missing something, could you please clear this up for me? I'm very sorry, I never had the chance to overclock before, itâ€™s my first time
I just want to know how the CPU clocks influence the RAM clocks and why.
Either way, since I have about a month to go until purchase, I will wait and see if anyone can comment on that ram I found and if not, I will go with what is known and try to find the best G.SKill deal available and go with it. It was mentioned here before that 4*1gig or 2*2gig isnâ€™t a big difference, itâ€™s just a little harder to overclock with all 4 sticks instead of 2 from what I understand but it comes out cheaper so I will see when the time comes.
And born2killU, thx for the advice, if I find a good deal on those, I will definitely go for it
