Default Re: Help overclocking my quad core?

Hmm...on that subject, what is the highest speed you should realistically expect from name brand DDR2-800 memory? One of mine seems to run ok at 1098Mhz (haven't tried higher yet) and the other runs fine at 1050 but craps out at 1098. Both don't seem to like going below CAS 6 at these speeds though.

I am asking because I am thinking about going to Fry's electronics and exchanging the other stick, but it is a long drive so I am curious what I should realistically expect before I bother doing so.

Also would it be faster to run CAS 4 at 800 or CAS 6 at 1098?
