    183 divider (253 mem speed - 7,3,3,2.5 (1T)
    166 divider (233 mem speed - 6,3,2,2.5 (1T)
    133 divider (186 mem speed - 5,2,2,2 (1T)

    I believe latency makes more of a difference than speed, but its difficult to say if the added speed would compensate for the lower latency. You need a memory benchmark of some sort.

    Bench with superpi 1mb, but I can tell you now that 183 divider (253 mem speed - 7,3,3,2.5 (1T)) will be the fastest.

    I did some testing at 2,3,2,5 abd 2,3,2,6 with my sticks and made no difference in everest or superpi
