On my Intel-based nForce board, anything other than 1:1 is a nono. I know with AMD it is different - I am guessing this is the same for ALL nForce chipsets though; I would suggest running tests on your system with the ram in sync (Super Pi) and then test it at the same clock speed but out of sync. See for yourself, as I am unfamiliar with your exact chip.
It would most definitely not
be worth risking your memory - if you think about it, youre really only sacrificing a couple FPS in games maybe?
