[QUOTE=A True Folder;800792]There are theoretical gains to be made by running memory at a 1:1 ratio with the FSB but you'd only notice the difference in benchmarks and not real life.[/QUOTE]
Words right out of my mouth ATF. I just can't get over people bragging that they had their system OC'd to blah and blah for 19 gazillion hours and stable and yada yada yada... The bottom line is that if you speed it up a bit to what you are happy with and it's working good, then you are doing fine. I think sometimes some people might misinterpret things that EXTREME OC'ers do (people that don't care about what the system does as long as they have the highest OC they can have) with what HOBBY OC'ers try and accomplish(who just look for a little boost in performance with their systems). 2XXXX on 3dMark really doesn't mean jack squat unless you are going for bragging rights. Don't go and pay big bucks if you can pay, well, little bucks for something ALMOST as good that you won't notice a real performance loss. That's just how I tend to look at OC'ing, but I know there is more than one side to this and understand that as well.
