How Do I Turn My 4400X2 System Into A Video Encoder Rig With CPU/RAM Clocks?

    Ok current clocks are as:

    4400X2 @
    2420.1Mhz
    X11 Multi
    FSB 220MHZ

    Corsair 1GB Pro 220Mhz 2-3-2-6-8 Timings

    Ok I can get the CPU to about 2.6 but then the system isnt quiet but im up for a week of no sleep to get this done.

    I need to decode some videos ASAP

    Of 66 parts to encode takes 4hours to do in blocks of 7.

    Which are better settings to go for. Higher Mhz on the CPU is simple but should I go for higher RAM speed or tight timings?

    Quick reply if possible thanks. :)

    higher RAM speed video editing needs as much bandwidth as you can throw at it

    is that stable? im surprised you got a ratio of 1:1 and not using a divider... i got the same CPU, mine is currently clocked at 2.420 (220x11), couldn't get the fsb any higher without putting it on a divider.... my ram is Corsair 2GB (2.5,3,3,6 1T)

    Oh also turned off 1T, upped the RAM to 1.7v (1.8v actual)

    Seems to of taken about 1.30 hours of my time, not bad.

    Running at 48C one core under load, silent fan speeds. so in all not bad. Seems to run at lower volts after about 2 months running at 2.4Ghz with max load.
