|MoBo: Gigabyte P35-DS3L|
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.66GHz
Currently I have 1066 installed underclocked to 800. I bought the 1066 becuase it was marked way down and my board said it was supported. That was before I learned the board supported 1066 but it had to be underclocked to 800 and that I should be shooting for 1:1 anyway . Currently the CPU is boosted by the OC settings to hit 1:1.
I need to upgrade from 2GB in hopes of getting rid of this lag issue that has been going on and want to have the optimal RAM in there. I have read that hitting the 1:1 with the matching RAM+FSB is best but it seems I have also read that getting a slightly higher speed RAM and matching up the RAM+FSB by tweaking the settings to hit the 1:1 is best too. You think you know something until you start reading and then everything just seems to get confusing and then you feel like you know nothing.
Which of the following would give me better stability and performance?
Just install straight 667 and do not touch the OC settings.
Install 800 and continue using the OC settings to hit 1:1.
Or, get more 1066 and continue using the OC settings to hit 1:1.
Looking to buy soon if I can get a quick response it would be very much appreciated, thank you.
(On a side note, would anyone know why the OC settings in the Bios keep resseting back to default? I set them and then down the road I run CPUZ and it says I am not at 1:1 and I have to go back in and reset the settings, very anoying.)
