I´ve read the links above, very interesting information.
I don´t know anything about overclocking, but would like to ask about one simple question:
it says the i7 920 is designed to work only with DDR3-800/1066 memory types.
So the question is, if I use 1333 memory and only set the memory multiplier in the BIOS so it displays 1333, will it work at 1333 or will be lowered back to 1066?. Or do I need to overclock the CPU to use 1333 memory speed, right?.
Ok. My current system is:
i7 920 + Gigabyte EX58-UD4P motherboard + 6GB 1333
My BIOS settings are default, with EIST and C1E disabled and:
CPU Clock Ratio: 20x -> 2,66GHz
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) : 10 -> Memory Freq (MHz): 1333
I mean, with this settings does the memory work at 1333, or do I have to overclock the CPU?.
