    Default XMP Profile vs Manual Overclock

    I spoke with a tech at Corsair and he is convinced that running XMP profile is better than a manual overclock since a true 1:1 ratio is obtained.

    I am running:

    I7 920
    Gigabyte GA-EX58 Extreme
    Coolmaster V8 CPU Cooler
    Corsair Dominator 3 x 2GB 1600 DDR3

    A true 1:1 ratio with 1600Mhz ram would be 800 Blck, not gonna happen no matter how you set anything

    1:1 is old news, and not even the best often with today's P35/45 boards.

    I thought so. I tinkered a bit and managed a very stable 3.8GHz that I am very happy with. Ran Everest, Prime95 for 12Hrs and 10 Runs of Intel Burn.
