So in other words, if I have PC3200 RAM in my system, it will act as PC2700?
:::EDIT::: The reason I ask is this: When the computer boots up, it lists the memory frequency at 200 MHz, which is PC3200. However, when I try to lower the RAM timings to the advertised 2.5-3-3-6, the computer randomly restarts during Call of Duty. When I lower the RAM speed to 166 MHz, or PC2700 (right?), I can lower the timings with no random restarts while playing. I ran 3DMark2001 and got about 100 points higher with the RAM frequency at 166 MHz and 2.5-3-3-6 as opposed to 200 MHz with 3-3-3-8. Am I correct in thinking that I should keep the RAM frequency at PC2700 to match the FSB of the CPU? To make a long story short (too late) is it better to run the RAM at a higher frequency and slower timings or with the RAM matching the FSB of the CPU with lower timings? I'm assuming the latter, but I wanted to check with you guys.
