    I was determined to upgrade my P4 3ghz Northwood (800mhz with HT) PC but thought i would have a little play before getting rid of the kit.
    I have decent quality Corsairs PC3200 ram that used to get the PC to around 3.3ghz on a 1:1 ratio (it was running arounf the 218ish mark). I decided to drop the ram to a 5/4 ratio and the PC has booted at 3450mhz at default volts !!

    Bearing in mind i am doing this on air with a Coolermaster solid copper "Fujiyama" HSF, what would be a good clock for this CPU ? I'll try and push it to the limit but what do people thing i "should" get out of it ?

    Also, is my PC really "running faster" @3.45ghz with the ram at 5/4 then it was at 3.3ghz with the ram at 1:1

    Thanks for any help / advice
