Default free beer

okay, my ram question in different form...
look at my sig, that is my system in a nutshell.
i am overclocked at 237 (x11) to give me 'bout 2.6...(and yes, i was that guy who was sayin' "i'm not gonna overclock"...heh heh f**K that, it's too much fun.

i had to lower my ht multiplier to 4x, because my system would not boot at 5x (too much fsb ima guessin).

my ht link, or fsb if you will, is at 948, due to the fact that my multiplier has to be @ 4x (4 x 237 = 948,yay!)

what will be my best ram settings? don't they need to match up to this ht/fsb number?

right now i have it set at 5-5-5-15, runs at 436ish (which is 872, not 948)

p.s. if you tell me 4-4-4-12, please tell me how to achieve that.
my trCD can be at 4, my tRP can be at 4, my tRAS can be at 12...but according to cpu-z, my "memory" is running at 5-4-4-12, at like 433mhz(which is 866, not 948), i.e my tCL is still 5.
my ram is spec'd at 4-4-4-12, so i don't know wtf...

help please...?

you'd probably get more help if you posted in the overclocking forum
