I have 2x1gb pny xlr8 pc2 1066 set at 533 to run at 1:1 ratio with my intel q6600 which is oced to 3ghz so the ram is running at 333mghz and the timings are 3-3-3-9. My friend called me a dumbass for having this setting but my motherboard only supports up to ddr2 800 so i cant set it to 1066 and even if I did would I even see an improvement since my cpus fsb would be half the speed?

266*2=533 533*2=1066 which is my cpus default fsb and when i oc to 333 the ram fsb rises to so it is 333 which is 667 as you said but if i set it to 667 it wont be a 1:1 ratio as the ram will operate higher in order to keep the ratio right. Just like when I had it set to ddr2 800 and had this oc the fsb for the ram for 440 or something like that.
