Arnie' Awsome guide for intel memory, is there an up to date version for DDR3 memory?

EAT Hey guys NEED a little troubleshooting here. Had a guy I work with offer me a thousand more than I paid to build my rig, as long as It runs stress test for 24hrs or more. That was no sweat but I realized that I never bothered tweak my memory settings. So I started going through the paces trying to get stable at 4,4,4,12,1clock running at 800mhz maybe 900mhz. But for some reason I cant for the life of me get it to run through memtest on anything but auto voltage(1.85v) anything above that errors... With everything Ive read on the striker extreme this seems backwards. I feel that without hitting somewhat higher voltages that I wont ever get stability on anything but stock timings. The gigabit version of the 680i I had wanted at least 2.2v on the memory. What gives? I am a little pressed for time or I would have done some more research and posted a couple of pics. One thing I did notice was the famous asus vdroop from 1.31vcore to 1.248vcore in cpuz. Also at load drops from 1.31v to 1.28v think this has anything to do with my memory woes? Thought about trying the pencil mod but no time and if I get the memory to something semi respectable I'm plenty happy. Thanks in advance.

Ravin So I'm going to upgrade both my RAM and CPU sometime soon, and have a question that I have not seen anyone ask. I know that you can put higher rated RAM into a lower rated MoBo, and usually you can get the RAM to run underclocked.

Say I wanted to buy 1000MHz ram and run it at 800MHz speed. Would underclocking the RAM allow for tighter timings?

GuDoN Great thread, thanks for the detail.

JeremyFr so let me get this straight I have a Cely D 346 533fsb and 512 of Kingston Value PC3200 DDR400. So if I wanted to run 1:1 then I would need to have the memory at 266Mhz in my bios? Is this correct? and also the "looser" settings is it easier for the ram to operate at "looser" than "tigher" i.e. I guess I'm trying to ask DDR runs more stable with looser timings though not as efficiently or as fast as it may have the possibility of, hence using the tighter timings?

OK here is my 2 photo of cpuz. i wanted to go futher and how do i do it ? i added only 20fsb and running 3080mhz now. i am using @D820
