Nope standard timings for 800mhz. Just up the front side bus 4 mhz and calculate what happens to cpu and what happens to ram speed and once you get it figured out you will know when ram will give you trouble. More than likely cpu will stop going up while ram still has bit more leeway.
Things will either report true speed or doubled effective speed. Which whoever started doing that should be killed and lobotomized.
Speed chip on the ram will try to set timings for clocks it knows about. Some bios will let you change one of the ram timing paramters. Some will let you change 4 of them. Some will let you change everything almost.
And as asus mobile said. Most ddr800 will go 920 940ish on stock voltage. Good for 960 to 980ish on +.1 volt. But it all depends on how your powersupply and board regulation and cpu handle everything. DC-DC powersupplies make it crazy though. You can get away with lower voltages on everything. Ive had my cpu at 100 mhz above stock with .15 volt below stock voltages. Still not monkeyed with video cards too much but would presume dc-dc has equally crazy results.Edited by Hephasteus - 3/31/09 at 1:01am
