Default Q6600 OC help

Specs: Q6600 @ 3.2 Ghz, P5K-e wifi, 8 gb of ram, HD 5750, OCZ 550W Psu,

I managed to get a ratio of 1:1 with a frequency of 400 Mhz, but I'm using 2 different types of ram.

OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 /1066 MHz 2x2Gb and Kingston HyperX 4GB 2X2Gb DDR2-1066
I did 8 x 400 = 3.2 Ghz and made the ram run at 800 Mhz to get 1:1 ratio.

But when i changed the ram to run at 1066 Mhz i get 4:3 ratio, but faster speeds.

So my question is should i leave it at 1066 Mhz or change it back to 800Mhz for more stability.
Also just wondering if this build can run a Gigabyte 6850 to full potential, I plan on running eyefinity.

Thanks for the help.

My System Specs


Hi - So if I understand correctly, you're OC using the higher freq and 4:3 is still about 3.2, right? So are you saying the memory is unstable at this setting? If so, then yes, go 800, otherwise keep it there.

the q600 won't limit that GPU in most applications.
