Overclocking Cpu with 2GB PC2-5400 DDR2 or 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2?

Recommended Posts

Assuming your mobo can handle it, ideally you would want a 1:1 ratio I think.


For example ...


Pentium 930 w/ 800 MHz FSB (200MHz x 4)

DDR2 533 (266MHz x 2)



You would need to OC your CPU to 1064MHz (266MHz x 4) to bring everything to it's full potential.


Essentially I am saying that advances in DDR2 are way ahead of Intel's CPU FSB so you don't need the fastest RAM available to get the best performance. :)
