So that 667 RAM would provide you with ample headroom for overclocking.
I hope that makes sense, in short, for your FSB that RAM will be fine, but to run the RAM at optimal settings you will probably have to change the RAM speed yourself in BIOS.
yeah i have my ratios etc planned out.. i just thought there was an in-built incompatibility between all ddr2 667 and an 800 mhz fsb.. i guess that user was just a moron like blameless said.. thanks i think i found my ram
how much tighter can i keep my timings if i ran ddr2 675 ram at 667?
