Default Crucial Ballistix DDR2-1000 - how to use it?

What to do with this RAM. I'm a newb at this..
Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000)
5-5-5-15
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146563

I just got all my system chore work done (OS/Program/Game Installs, and images made) and started overclocking.

All this time I left the ram at it's spec 2.2v, spec timings, and underclocked (I guess you'd say) at 800.

I went ahead and put it up to 1000, but left the timings alone. I don't want to really push it but I'm wondering what I should try to get out of it. Should I just go for better 4-4-4 timmings @800?

Thanks for any advice.

Hey thanks for the advice.
I've been off in NeverLand getting my OC stable.

-EVGA 680i
-E6600
-EVGA 8800GTS
-CRUCIAL BALLISTIX DDR2-1000
-PCP&C 750W Silencer


I ran this for 8 hours dual-Prime95 last night, no errors or warnings, I'm going to try and get down as low as I can in Vcore and overnight run again. I'm hoping to get down to 1.35v. Even a little off the top should make me feel better about the temps.

CPU: E6600
CPU SPEED: 3.46Ghz (3460.4)
CPU MULTIPLIER: 9
FSB SPEED: 1538
CPU vCore: 1.42v (BIOS set) 1.40v (BIOS Dispaly) 1.41v (SpeedFan - Idle desktop)
CPU FSB Voltage: [DEFAULT]
NFORCE SPP: DEFAULT]
PSU: PC POWER AND COOLING 750W SILENCER
COOLING: Zalman 9700 / x4 Case Fans (21db, 27.8 CFM)
CPU TEMP: w/ TAT .... 45C (desktop idel) 55C (gaming) 61C (Prime95 Average) 66C (Prime95 Peak)


I think I might try and throw those 4-4-4-15 timings in as well tonight.
(crosses fingers)

Thanks!
