Re: 965p mobo. Max RAM speed? What's pushing it?
Well... thats a sticky point because without overclocking the CPU would run at 2.4Ghz.
Thats why the options exist for various ratios.
So - if you run stock with 2.4 Ghz (266x9) CPU. then you will have to run ratio 3:1 for the RAM.
266 x 3 =798 (800Mhz).
So the options are there so that you can get the RAM up to its desired speed if not overclocking.
Thus I was left wandering what the upper limit was for the actual RAM speed. . . and if it was more based on the RAM than the Board, or if the Board was just as important.
Thanks for your help so far though,.,... helps to kick these ideas around.
