Memory Frequency to low?

Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, 2.4 GHz / 6141 MB
Hi, I have just clocked my q6600 to 3ghz. Frequency clock to 333mhz. And the pc runs 100% stable with the memory frequency at 667mhz. But it is supposed to run 1:1 at 800mhz but my motherboard bios does not have multiplier 2.4 to equal the frequency at 800 to 800. Anything higher and the system crashes vista restarts continiously. Please advise. I have the latest bios F11 and the ram is Transcend PC2-6400(400mhz) dual x2 2gigs and x2 1 gig same model and speed.
Please advise what setting will be the max and best for my configuration. Thankyou~

Your system IS running at 1:1. The CPU frequency is 333MHz, the RAM frequency is 333MHz. 667MHz is the theoretical DDR rating, not the frequency.

tanx for the correction.Is their a way to run the DDR rating at 800 instead of 667 while still clocked at 333 for 3Ghz?

1:1 is considered optimal. If you run the CPU frequency at 333MHz & the RAM at 400MHz (800MHz DDR), the ratio will become 5:6 in which case your system *may* actually take a performance hit. I recommend you leave it as-is.

Thank you this is great news!!!! If may, i just got Zalman CNPS9700 and at full speed the cpu temp idles at 45-48. Peaks at 60-70 when playing games. Does this sound normal? Zalman is supposed to run it at 45-50 peak. Thank you again!

Either your temp readings are inaccurate or you installed the heatsink incorrectly.

Thank you~ It may be that i put to much thermal paste on the plate. I heard that could cause the temp to be higher in some cases the fan is positioned correctly. Again thank you for your invalueble advice!
