So you have 1066 ram but you downgrade it to 800, and just raise the FSB, You should do some everest benchmarks and see the difference between the scores you get now compare it to just leave your ram at 1066
Isent your ram rated for 2.1-2.2 volts?

Mine are factory overclocked 6400, first time i went into the bios the default was 800 mhz and the volt was at 1.8

Ill try to see if 3.8ghz with 900 mhz ram is better than 3.7 and 1066 ram.

EDIT:

Where can i get the everest test?

Factory overclocked doesn't exist, that's actually somewhat of an oxymoron. The SPD was just programmed to boot at a low setting so it is compatible with the majority of motherboards and setups.

I believe you have to pay for Everest to run the full bandwidth test.

NO memory runs above 800mhz and 1.8v on the AMD boards by default. You have to manually change it.... The default for your memory is 2.2v according to Kingston's website. I have pc8500 memory and it is rated for 2.1v and 1066 but it shows up as 1.8v and 800. I tried it in a MSI CF-F, Asus M4A78 E and a Asus M4N78 pro and it all shows up the same way. That is a function of the AM2+/AM3 chips, I believe....

If memory has an SPD programmed for 1066, and the board can run it, it most likely will. So I believe that is not true.

I've only had this OCZ ddr2 kit but it has no proper SPD so I have to enter everything manually.

As i said earlier im not an expert. I just asked on another forum why my ram was running on 800 mhz and how come it was showing pc2-6400 in cpu-z and they answered that most pc2-8500 are factory overclocked, so i just took their word for it :/

Thanks for the link

Well can ya blame me for trusting what it actually says :/? When i clear my cmos the ram always goes back to 800mhz and the volt to 1.8

EDIT: okay i did the everest test honda suggested and i got these results, i have no idea what they mean, so you guys tell me.

Senior: Do you know what BIOS you are running on the mobo? just wondering cause Everest not reading your motherboard... You should be using BIOS F8
The bottom one is better score, next time if you could get a CPUZ shot with Memory tab, see what your NB is running

Ive been running all sorts of programs today but i can almost swear that i saw one where it said my bios were something like "@2.1" or anything like that, is there a way to check?

nb frequency is at 214x with the bottom setup.

dxdiag says this about my bios.

"award modular bios v6.00pg" not sure if it rings any bells to you guys.

And this is what i got out from my registor

"GBT - 42302e31
Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG"

So to sum up, its better to have faster ram than cpu? until a point that is.
