I have a little problem, I wasn't very careful when I bought this PC back in the day before so I bought a mobo little incompatible with some stuff. My Motherboard is 945PL-S3P
1-Supports up to FSB 1066 for cpu's only, while my e8400 is FSB 1333, no biggie fixed by oc'ing, see my thread for more info if you'd like E8400 3.00 GHz CPU running @ 2.4 GHz only
Now I have another problem, my 2 x 2gb DDR2 ram should run at 800 MHz, but max of my mobo is 667 MHz, and a friend told me even if you could get it to run 800 MHz, 800/2 = 400 MHz ie not equal to CPU bus speed and will cause it to bottleneck sometimes.
My question is, can I overclock my rams to 400 MHz ( ie its stock speed ), and safely overclock my CPU more to 3.6 GHz ( since it was actually overclocked from 2.4 GHz to its stock due to the FSB problem, here's the thread link again that explains the problem E8400 3.00 GHz CPU running @ 2.4 GHz only
And if it's not possible to push my CPU that far, can't I change its bus speed to 400 MHz but lowen its multiplier from 9 to 8, causing it to run at 3.2 Ghz?
Keep in mind, my CPU cooler isn't stock but isn't really a good one either, this thing I bought for like 6 bucks ( because my stock cooler went kaboom and the shop gave me this when I went to it ).
P.S If you need pictures of CPU-Z or any other app, please tell me
