utilizng ram speeds


Recommended Posts

Suppose I oc'd my system (e8400 3ghz) to 422X9 (3800MHZ)

fsb: dram ratio 1:1

this means 422X2= 844 MHZ (used by my ram)


BUT, my ram is 1066 mhz (533X2)! does this mean that my ram does not utilize it's full speed ability?


Or am I getting this all wrong...

(but if I'm right, then why should I buy ram faster than 800 MHZ???)
