I've read somewhere on the net that my FSB-to-DRAM Ratio should be 1:1 to maximize performance, so I decided to try it out.
* Intel Q8200 2.33Ghz Stock
* Transcend aXeRam DDR2-1066+ 4gb Kit
* Ion2 700w PSU
* Stock Cooling
The default values at bios looked like this:
* FSB Freq 200Mhz
* Mem Clock DDR2-667Mhz
First, I changed the FSB Freq to 533Mhz since my ram said that it's should run fine at 1066Mhz.. My CPU Clock shot to 3.1Ghz (!!) and a bios warning told me that my CPU is running a bit too hot :( I looked around the net and found this tool called realtemp.exe, ran it and my Idle Temp is at 65c (at 1~5% CPU Usage).. When I try to run games (Prototype, to be specific), the screen blacks out (no BSOD) and computer restarts :'(
So, I changed it to default values again :D and went here to ask for some advice on how to continue.. I know that there's a lot of resources on the web about this kind of stuff, but I can't make heads or tails about TCase, TJ Max, JEDEC (wtf?), CAS#, RAS#, TRAS# (trash?) and some other stuff that the pros were talking about so uhm...
