In general should I use Low FSB (below the stock) or High FSB when OC the Memory?
My CPU and memory below.
*Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Gulftown 3.33GHz @3.99GHz
*G.SKILL Trident+ Turbulence II 12GB (3 x 4GB) F3-12800CL7T-12GBTDD @1600 (7-8-7-24 1.60v)

I go for an extra 3-6Mhz on my 3930K, the only time I decrease is when using a 125strap and want to run at 2310 or so, about the max before I have to go from CL9 to 10.

It should not make much difference, but I am guessing that whatever small difference there may be would favor higher clock.

You can try either way but most of the time try OC'ing by multi first then attempt for below-stock FSB thumb.gif

Those of my chips likes tighter timing but not higher DRAM frequencies somehow. At 1866 , the timing has to be raised to 9-9-9-24 and the performance is worse. Any suggestions?
