My System Specs

Default have i clocked my ram correctly?

So I decided that I wanted to OC my ram. set it to 1600 MHz from 1333 MHz, and adjusted the timings because they were all over the place.

Using:
G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ PC3-10666 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 240PIN

and ASUS M4A78T-E Motherboard,

Originally tried to set timings to 2T 7-7-7-24, but couldn't post, so I set them back to 2T 9-9-9-24. I can't recall if they were 1T 9-9-9-24 when it was 1333 MHz, but 2T 9-9-9-24 @ 1600 MHz worked fine...



So I was just wondering if everything looks ok numberswise, since I have no real way of knowing...also, I've got more 4 more gb on the way,can I just add these in without a hitch and keep the 1600 MHz?

looks fine to me. increase your ram voltage to +0.1 - 0.15v of your ram's spec, and start dropping timings, test rigorously each time. 9-8-8-21, 8-9-9-24, 8-8-8,21 in that order, or something like that. keep the command rate at 2T for now

You should always be at 1T on DDR3 I believe. Could be mistaken though.
