yea, and i just crashed lol. i have my cpu@1.4v right now, i figure if i crash again im loosining my timing. this ram the 4-4-4-11 is suppose to be at ddr2-533 lol if i do crash im going to put it at 5-5-5-13 (which is for 667)

I suggest to leave your ram at stock timings, then overclock your core's clock to test your highest clocking available for your fsb for your core. Then you can try loosening timings.

which stock timing should i use? the 3-3-3-8 (400), 4-4-4-11(533), or 5-5-5-13(667)?

What voltage are you using? Anything less than or 2.1v is not recommended, have to try at least 2.20v to 2.30v.

Generally, DDR2 667 can go as high as DDR2 900 with 4-4-4-12 and 2.30v.

So, 450x7 could be easy to achieve.

but the rams stock voltage is 1.8v, i thought its not safe to add more than .2v?

2.10v is weak, I'm telling you, specially if you're going to overclock to 400mhz and higher, here read this interesting article: http://www.anandtech.com/memory/showdoc.aspx?i=2853

As you can see, they call for 2.20v but from my experienced, 2.30v makes it stable. And BTW, I had some Corsair XSM2 DDR2 675s that ran at 2.30v fine.

The rams are actually tougher than what it says. What was your latency for your ram?
