    recently bought a asus p4c800 e mobo, a P4 2.6c processor and 2 *256mb ocz 4200 performance memory and ive got a stable overclock to 3200mhz with no probs and mem at 2.5 4 6 4 and was wondering what else i could do and whats this about dividers.

    thanx in advance

    edit: I also get 144 fps in quake 3 when i run

    Essentially you'll get the best performance if you have PC3200 or PC3500 with fast timings. BH5 RAM, as mentioned in the other article, can run timings of 2-2-2-5, which is incredible fast. CH5 (the newer stuff), usually runs 2-3-2-6 timings. A little slower, but its still not that bad. Higher speed RAM, such as PC3700 and PC4000 runs at 3-4-4-8. Although it looks good in benchmarks, in games and what not its pretty slow. So, your best bet is to get some quick RAM and o/c in 5:4 ratio, so that the RAM still runs at 200MHz with its low timings, but your CPU and everything else runs on a 250Mhz FSB. I know OCZ PC3500 Platinum is BH5 RAM, not sure what else is. Someone else with more info should answer that though :thumb: . Good luck and happy o/cing, : peace2: Mista K6

    i love my corsair pc-4000 (512mb) it overclocks to 274mhz no higher (at 2.8v highest mobo will allow) at 3-4-4-8 timmings, but if i were to buy again, id probably get OCZdual chan gold or corsair pc4400

    mista, i cant believe you wrote that ..!!! no way man,!!! never change your cpu/bus ratio 1:1 is ALWAYS the BEST . 5:4 isnt good timming because it doesnt allow enough system throughput plus you have your processor holding onto data for extra cycles because its not at a sycronouse rate (1:1) waiting for the ram to catch up, in every benchmark the timmings dont make enough differance to offset the fact that your losing 50mhz... just my :2cents:

    Actually runnin' fast timed PC3200-3500 @ 5:4 when overclockin' is better than runnin' slow timed PC4000 (which is very slow timed) @ 1:1 as most gamin' benchmarks will show (forget about Sandra as its only a static test and not real world). Bandwidth is one thing but high latencies is another.
