I have been reading post from others with the same RAM. Seems 7-7-7-18 at 1600 is about all I should expect.
Had a funny thing happen last night. I wanted to see what effect overclocking my CPU had on FSX so I started the game, setup a flight in New York (NYC is a good place to fly too see what FPS your going to expect in FSX) got it up and running and saved the game. I loaded up one of my BIOS OC settings and ran FSX again loaded my saved game and got worse FPS than with my stock CPU clock. My OC was 3.46GHz. I got 10-15 more FPS with the stock settings. My OC took because I checked it with CPUZ. After all that I went to bed, going to check it out again tonight.
