just wondering if lowering the multi would allow my pc to be faster, because the fsb will be higher and the ram will be faster. Cause right now its not even going at 800mhz which the stock value, and this ram goes up to 1000 ive been told. Screen posted, and thanks for any help.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/1/16/162b79f4_vbattach33593.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616778/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

try tightening the timings on your ram first, 1:1 is obviously good, but close down those timings... What is stock for your timings at stock speed?

Yes, your overall performance will be better. But I'm not entirely sure if the 975X can handle such a high fsb.

sorry, don't know much of the expected results of the 975x xchipset. Good Luck

The 2.13ghz chips can handle 400fsb (on a 1:1 ratio) easy. Now the question is, how is your cooling? Is it keeping the CPU under good temps for idle and load?<br><br>
On a 975X I don't know how higher than can go pass 400fsb but on a P965 I've seen over 400fsb easy. So far it's a good OC but how high is the Vc? Stock? If not, you can certainly push a little more.......say 400? go for it.

Timings are not that important on Intel's, so I usually don't mess with timings until I've found the highest stable CPU and RAM speeds. Lower timings can hold back RAM speed, and you will see better performance from a 1:1 ratio at 25 higher FSB than you will from dropping timings slightly.<br />

Silent, if your temps are in the green and your voltage is within your saftey zone then go for it....

Thanks all, yea my idle is 39c using coretemp i may push it to 400fsb, and bump the voltage up to maybe like 1.4 and see how that goes, thanks everyone for the confidence boost! ><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I agree with Thumper. I'd rather have more instructions going through than have tighter timings. To me, timings are just a bonus.
