Ok. I tried doing a search and something must not be right because I got 0 hits with anything to do with the topic. I'm trying to find out if I'm better off leaving my computer as is, or underclocking my RAM. Right now I have a Q9450 OC'd at 3.2GHz (400MHz x 8) and Corsair Dominator DDR2 PC8500 (1066MHz) memory at 1066MHz (400MHz MCH and 2.66 multiplier) and CL5 timing. Am I better off leaving it like this, with a FSB
RAM ration of 3:4, or underclocking my memory to 800MHz to get a 1:1 ratio and perhaps tightening my timing to CL4? I've tried to look this up and get no answers that make me feel comfortable. I obviously am looking for the best compromise of performance and stability/reliability. Please help if you can explain.
