I have heard that a 1:1 ratio is optimal as a RAM devider, why is that? Is it just that running your RAM faster is better? Or are there other factors?

I think that it provides a better balance to the perfomance of the system as a whole, not just for particular taks.

So, 1:1 is more optimal then say, 3:4, where the RAM would be running faster then 1:1?

My RAM knowledge is limited, and is my weak point insofar as experience.<br><br>
I have used a divider only when I wanted to get a little more out of the Processor and the RAM was holding me back (I did this for awhile on my x2 3800 rig).<br><br>
More than that I am no qualified to say - it would be specular.<br><br>
Hopefully one of the RAM-Gods will see this post and be able to provide you with more in-depth information and knowldege.<br><br>
Good luck <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
