I'm now in Colorado
What do I set my pc2700 ram to if I am overclocking a 1600+? do I put it to 166 in the bios, or 133 then oc the fsb to 166, so memory will be running at the same speed as the fsb (166) and be within its spec plus the processor will be oced too.Is that how you do it or do you put it to 166 and go from there? The 133 then oc the fsb seems logical to me am I wrong?

Set both to 166.pc2700 runs at 166 stock,so you would'nt be overclocking your memory.
