Hello everyone! I am planning to upgrade my modules from 667 to 800 or 1066. My current modules are 2x 2gb corsair value ram 667mhz ddr2. I am doing this so that i can have a better OC on my processor because it seems that my current modules are hindering my OC. Current ram speed is 360 MHz (1:1) @ 5-5-5-15. The dram voltage i set in my bios is 1.82v. My questions are:

would i go for 1066mhz mems? or the 800 will do and i will just OC it?
Can i also push my recent OC with these mems? (667mhz)
I would also appreciate if you give your estimate on how much more I can OC with 800 or 1066 modules.

Thank you very much. Any help will be highly appreciated.

(you can check on my sig if you want to know more about my system)

Yeah that's what i thought. I might be getting a pair of 1066 soon but for the mean time, can i still push my recent OC? my modules are a little bit OCd right now, or can I still squeeze some more? lemme know what do you think.

Yes, You can push it. The result depends on which Corsair 667 ram you have. If it is value ram, then you will be lucky if you can put 10% on it. Good luck.
