RAM is Corsair Dominator, 1066 running at some slightly lower than stock timings, 5-4-4-12, 2T
thats a good score for ddr2, my ddr3 score with 8gb 1600 tops is about 8300mb/s and my 4gb 1800 was tops of about 8700mb/s! thats a good figure.

i have a e8400 sitting on my shelf, the most i got out of it was 4.22 on air cooling (lapped though) they are a great cpu and have alot of potential.

so how can I change and check memory timing ?
you will have to enter into your bios. GA i think is Gigabyte i think, i dont have any experience with their overclocking or using the bios.

find your memory cock settings (usually in the same section as your fsb and cpu speed settings) and there is usually a section for memory timings.

a good idea is to find out the specs for the ram you have, especially the voltage for the amount of memory. EG: my g.skill is 1.4v-1.6v with 2gbx2 (4gb) and 1.6v-1.8v for2gbx4 (8gb).

if you dont quite know what your doing with the timings just use google for help like i did, you will find hundreds of searches relating to overclocking guids that are really helpful.

if you dont already know voltage is the MOST imortant thing to be carful with. most cpu's have safety features to avoid overvoltage and overheating but ram does not have protection so it is possible to fry your memory (from experience) like i said google is your friend.

the timtings is a little high for ddr2. most quality ram timtings are around 5/5/5/12 or 4/4/4/12. try getting it stable at 1T and see what your wei bandwidth score is.

the 1st img on the left was the one i was referring to as a 'bit high' for the ddr2. the one on the right (second img) is better. i still think you should try for 1T timing. you may need to decrease the mem speed and increase the timings a little to achieve 1T but sometimes it can be worth it, depending on how much you have to lower the clocks and increase timings. my 1800mhz ram would only get 1T around 1600mhz so to me it wasnt worth the underclock, plus it went from almost 8900mb/s at 2T 1800mhz to around 7800mb/s at 1T 1600mhz. generally lower speed ram needs less 'effort' to achieve 1T unlike my 1800mhz dimm's. my 1600mhz dimm's get 1T straight out the box even tho they rate them for 2T and i can overclock the 1600's at 1T which i found a bit bizzare.

like i posted prev, my new cheap g.skill 1600 9/9/9/24 2T when tweaked at 1T@1680mhz gets around 8300mb/s, my best score on my expensive 1800 8/8/8/24 2T when tweaked was around 8700mb/s-8900mb/s. see where im going? you can optimize your ram to run just as good as higher end types. your not too far off my ddr3 mem scores, that alone would give me reason to tweak some more but i will wait for my other board to arrive from rma till i go any further.

experiment, its fun. just set your voltage just under max recommend so they dont overheat too much and play away with those timings. i use alot of different stress testing programs tho the best i have found is intel burn test, it will stress it harder and hotter than all the other 'popular' ones out there and i have tried just about all of them. my vdroop drops more with this software than any of the others which simply means its pushing it harder. it also obtains results in alot (i mean ALOT) quicker than prime95,OCCT,linX and so forth. really simple to use, no flash bling bling appearance.

the other is the basic memtest86+ but it sure takes its time to test for an adequite result that its stable.
