Default Anybody ever OC'ed their amd 64

Preferably a 3200

I just FINALLY got mine to OC. (it was my fault tho, i forgot to reduce the ram to fsb ratio or whatever, i changed it from 2:1 to 5:3 so that the ram now runs at 183mhz which i wish i could get back to 200 but i can't)

so anyways
i have the FSB set to 220 resulting in a 2.2Ghz speed at extremely stable temps. I am still running 2-3-2-6 timings on the ram and this OC has improved my 3dmark01 score from ~19,000 > 21,000

Would you recommend keeping the low timings on the ram or trying to force it to run at like 220mhz?

It is an annoying ratio to work with, memory usually have low CAS latency or fast speed (MHz).

I would keep with your current settings looking at your 3D Marks increase.
