    Ok, Im using POS generic 266mhz ram in my rig.(im gonna order new ram real soon)
    As you can see from my sig, my rig is fairly OC'd at, 13.5x149.
    So my ram is running over specs... My question is, is this degrading my ram? cause im noticing that my performance is lacking.

    Another thing is, My multiplier stops at 13. is there a way I can go below 13 with this board?
    Main RiG:
    CPU: Athlon 64 3200+@2.17
    Mobo:Asus KT8V deluxe
    Ram:1Gig Corasair XMS PC-3200
    AGP: eVga GeForce 6800
    Case:Antec SLB
    HDD:Maxtor 80Gig 8mb
    PSU:Antec TRUE380

    Yes memory can degrade though that's fairly rare and seein' as your mobo is KT333 based there should be an AGP/PCI divider at 166MHz but as I've never used that particular mobo I can't say for sure whether it's implamented on that one but ya need to bridge the last L3 bridge on that CPU or use a Speed Strip to be able to use all the multipliers from 12.5 downwards.

    It should have a long lifetime if you are running it within the rated voltage specs.

    Anything up to 3.2v is fine.
