In my TH7 II had 256Mo of Kingston RDRAM (45ns) that would not go above 960 (120fsbx4 or 160x3 ) so i decided to try the new Samsung (40ns) (2x128Mo ) to see , and i could not beleive it ,
i could raise fsb till 146 keeping the multiplier at 4 ,getting so PC 1160 with stock DGRC! I had hesitated to buy PC1066 but it was too expensive and i have read it would not work at x3 , I am glad i got the PC800 !

Actually TH7-II's generally do at least this well with Samsung PC800. The reports I've read from the TH7-II crowd all say the board likes it better than PC1066, and nearly all say they got even more out of the 45ns Samsung PC800. But either way you have no shortage of memory thoughput. Too bad you don't have a touch higher multiplier to get the cpu speed up a tad. My 1.6a has 2600 in it very easily.
