Underclocking Ram?

Fri Apr 09, 2004 6:16 pm

Hi Guys,
I have a question for you all, hope someone can help!

I have recently purchased a new PC system for FS9, including a Pentium IV 2.8 Ghz processor running at 533Mhz FSB. I have also purchased 1024Mb of DDR 400 PC3200 Ram, knowing that I will reveive better performance when/if i upgrade to an 800Mhz FSB processor. My question to you guys is...

Will I need to underclock my RAM in order for it to run in sync with my processor? Or should I be fine running the RAM @ PC3200, rather than underclocking to PC2700? I have heard of people underclocking their RAM, but then I have seen reviews were i beleive it has not, such as here http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/20040322/prescott-04.html

So my question to you is, will I need to do any underclocking of my RAM? Will I get better performance at PC2700 than PC3200 with a 533Mhz FSB? Any help greatly apreciated!!

Cheers  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

You would be much better off asking on Tomshareware.com Forums.

I have been using them for years, and they have helped me revive a few dead Boxs.
