dude f*** it if your ram will run that speed stable, it certainly wont hurt it. especially if you haven't changed the voltage.
i've heard good things about g. skill...and if you can do that and go even higher i might have to git me some.
curious, though...what are the timings?
oh yeah, my rig is nothing like yours, but in my bios it doesn't say "fsb:dram ratio change here"
it has a section in the advanced chipset options to change the speed of the ram, ie from ddr2-800 to ddr2-667.
which with my rig:
ddr2-800 = 6, ddr2-667 = 7, ddr2-533 = 8, ddr2-400 = 9.
so, for example, to run a 1:1 multi i could change my cpu clock speed multiplier to 6 and set ram to ddr2-800 , or set cpu ext. clock to 7 to get ddr2-667. get it?
so if i run my rig at 300x9, and want a 1:1 ratio, i would have to set the ram speed to ddr2-400, and it would run at 300 mhz (same as my cpu external clock). but screw that.
ideally i would want to run 400x8 (3.2ghz yeah right) and set ram speed to ddr2-533. but my mobo says, "that aint gonna happen" it doesn't like fsb speed that high. and i don't think my cpu would either.
it's probably not the same with yours, but maybe that will give you a starting point.
it took me for frigging ever to figure that out.
