Arrow cpu ram ratio question

I started to OC my pc a bit and I'm able to get 3.0 with only bumping up my voltage 1 notch. Now my rams running at 800 and my ratio is 5:6 and my question is would it be better to drop my ram down so I could get a 1:1 ratio? I've read some different articles saying that 1:1 is obviously the best choice but a 5:6 is actually pretty good to. Is that accurate or just a bunch of bull?

with the new chips it is not as important to have it set to 1:1 as it was in the past. i actually notice absolutely zero difference. you're fine.
