Would I be better off just leaving my OC at 293 x 10 with my ram at 241 or bumping down to 300 x9 with my ram at 245. I am trying so very hard to get to 250 aka sweet spot of my ram but its just trouble some to do.<br><br>

IMO 300*9 Would run faster as you have lost the 4Mhz on the RAM but added a extra 63Mhz on the CPU (which doesnt sound like much but it will make a lil difference)

Actually I gained on the ram but lost on the cpu in overall. The CPU would be at 2700 vs 2900.<br><br>

The higher the FSB is the better in relation to your cpu's performance. The best way to find out is to run a variety of benchmarks like Sandra, SuperPi, PCMark, 3DMark, etc and see how it performs. Sometimes a higher FSB with tight timings and an above average divider will yield better results for your computing needs and sometimes a lower FSB with a 1:1 ratio with loose timings will yield better results. You will have to find out for yourself, and the fun is finding it out, or am I just a computer dork. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

No your not a dork <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> but doing that can cause you to run around in a square <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

LOL.<br><br>
Well so far I got the FSB up to 312 x 9 with my ram at 255 with the timings still at 2-2-2-0 and 3.5v so we arent doing too bad here. I think this might work out a little better.<br><br>

Why not relax the timings for higher speeds?

Well the timings can be at that for those higher speeds. This ram is truely amazing. So far this is the best I could get with my original 2.9ghz x10 multi which is pretty good I would say.<br><br>
Also as you know Duke the AMD systems respond better to faster timings. Also I shaved some time off my SuperPi as it was 29s before.<br><br>
EDIT: I just updated to 1.37 and it says my OC is at 2931.1 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

I cant get an OC of 3ghz on my stock vcore. When the Infinity gets here I will rasie the vcore as it gets outta control with the AC64 Pro. I can go higher then 300fsb on a lower multi, I actually got up to 326 at one point but saw no performance increase.<br><br>
