Best way to OC?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, just wondering if I could get some advice on the best way to overclock my system.


Core 2 Duo E6700

Corsair Dominator PC6400 RAM (promos IC)

Striker Extreme mobo


I was running:


FSB: 1333 MHz

RAM: 3:2 Ratio = 888.9MHz @ 4-4-4-12-2T

CPU: 3333.3MHz


Is this a good way to go for my system? I heard that RAM should really be run in 1:1 or Sync mode for best results... Any comments on that? Any suggestions on how to get the most out of the system would be appreciated.


I did try putting my RAM in Sync Mode for a bit, had to raise the FSB to 1600 just to get it to 800MHz, obviously more CPU speed (dropped the multiplier a bit) but I never got a chance to run a benchmark and find if there was any real gain or if I lost.
