Re: Running memory out of sync with CPU...
If it is a Athlon XP it's best to use 1:1 otherwise your bandwith will drop, with Pentium 4's it's fine same goes for Core2's, Athlon 64's perfer 1:1 also for best resaults however if you are CPU limited CPU clock speed will matter the most. When you become GPU limited then overclocking the GPU and FSB/Memory.
