Is it best to loosen RAM timings and drop CPU multiplier first and get max FSB? It would seem that adjusting the clock speed after that would be extremely coarse using the multiplier alone. Does the higher FSB affect performance more than dropping FSB 10-20 Mhz to use a higher multiplier?
Personally, i’m just looking for a mild, very stable, OC.
I let Orthos run overnight for 12 hours without errors at 366x8, DDR-733, with the same 5-5-5-12 timings that my RAM is certified for at DDR-800. Would trying for 400x7 seriously shorten my mobo lifespan? I shouldn’t have to raise vcore since the final clock speed is actually lower- right?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
