I understand the notion behind the FSB being "quad-pumped" and the ram being "double-pumped"...ie., running at one quarter of the 1333FSB and one half of the 667 ram, both being equal to 333. Is it ideal to have them matched, or is it better to have the ram with "overhead" that I've seen people speak of here? (I don't plan on OC'ing)
