Memory issue

In Samuknows Folding@Home ShadowFang brought up his new memory, G. Skill. It's the same brand I've just put in my rig. I had never heard of that MFG before but the reviews were better than I have ever read for any product. They just praised the OC capabilities.
I got to wondering. Just what does OC'ing the mem do?
Just my case. I've put the FSB to 1333 and CPU volts @102% to take my OC from 1.8 @ 3.0.
What would OC'ing the memory do?
Maybe Miffin's having a bad influence on me!

Miff1n? that old guy next door is influencing you? LOL...lets hope not...

I've done a series of tests OCing my memory & not overclocking it trying to get the optimal throughput for my setup.

Guess what my best results are?
Raising the mobo's FSB & only slightly OCing the memory.

Why is this the best way?
Because it doesn't do you any good to have the memory talking to the NB at 15,000mbs when the NB is answering it back at 10,000.
The higher your NB FSB is, the more memory throughput you have.
This is yet another reason "why" I want a full 1GHz OC on my system!
Faster FSB speeds! (My Multi is locked on this processor using this board at x10)

Hope that makes sense.

If I'm reading you correctly, in your situation OC'ing the mem doesn't help you to much.
So there are other set ups that it helps a lot. I've just got to find out which is which. Tall order I think. Another project on the back burner. To much going on for me to invest that amount of time right now. Thanks

Most programs load into memory yes? So you want your CPU to "talk" to the memory as fast as possible yes?

You didn't get my point I guess...
OK, I was just pointing out in my case, that for me to have a higher FSB I have to OC my CPU faster is all.

But in general the best results will always be for all NB systems (yours, mine, anyones) is to have a decent high clock on your CPU, a very fast & high FSB speed, & have your memory running fast enough to keep up with & to talk to this setup at the needed speeds so as to not create a choke point or bottle neck in the system during the transport of the information being processed.

In short: You get better throughput by OCing your CPU & having a fast FSB speed than if you just OC your memory.

I hope that makes some sense.

I think I have an idea what's going on. The mem isn't speeding anything up by it self. OC'ing it changes very little unless you are OC'ing the other attributes and then it has to be able to keep up. Then there is the reverse. If you have cheap memory it won't OC very much and then you can OC the CPU to forever but it will only go as far as the memory will allow. That is why OC'ers want Quality memory.
How's that, Boss?
