RAM and overclocking


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have a couple of questions that hopefully someone could help me to understand.

 

1. At present, my rig has 800MHz RAM and suppose I wasn't looking to overclock the PC much at all (avoiding increase noise) would changing my RAM to Corsair 1066MHz 8500 2.1V dominator make any difference in performance?

 

2. Since my CPU default FSB of 333MHz, even if I were to overclock the FSB to 400MHz, would the RAM not have to make any changes to its speed as it is rated 800/2?

 

thanks

Ok, just that gigabyte have this windows based tool for overclocking (Easytune) where you can get the FSB to vary if and when it decided it needs to too. When setting it to SPORTS mode my CPU when up to 3.42GHz in 3DMARK6, now if I look at the memory for that setting it says range is 800 to 960MHz!!! like that is also going to increase!!!, I would have thought it would vary the FSB to memory ratio to maintain 800MHz, what do you think?
