What? said that the HTT multipler is the NB to CPU and 3x=600 4x=800. If I want my htt to be 266mhz, which multipler do i want? I put the RAM voltage to HIGH. My memory shows CAS 2.5 with 133mhz in cpu-z. Vcore is 1.45V in the bios but shows 1.40 in cpu-z, why is that? My multipler is x9. But when I reboot my system just freezes. I don't know how everyone is 'loosening' their RAM. Where in the bios do you do that? Is that the 2, 4, 6 clicks options on the RAS or CAS or Cycle times? Anyways, what do you think I need to do?
First things first - in order to push that ram speed, you're definitely going to need TCCD - you only have 2.7 on VDIMM at the HIGH setting. Your ram dividers are where it says "Memory Frequency" in the bios - set it to, say, the DDR266 setting right now (you can play with your mem later to see how high it'll go on 2.7V). If you want your bus set anywhere above 250~333, set it at 600 (or, translated, x3). This will keep it under the 1000 mark (this is where you want it). Your system is freezing probably because either your Hypertransport multi is too high (if you have it set to four (800) it likely won't boot), or you simply don't have quite enough voltage to get that proc to do 2.4. Take my settings for example...
My power supply is an absolute beast, so when I set my vcore, it ends up being a full .05V higher than what I set it to (so for me, 1.45 is essentially 1.5). With the OCWB1 bios, here's where I'm at (I'm about to do the volt mod today (solder this time), so it'll be probably higher than this later)
CPU Multi - x8
HTT (or FSB) - 300
PCIE - 100
Memory Clock - DDR333 (~5/6 divider)
Mem timings - 2.5-3-10-3-1T
Mem voltage - High
CPU-NB Hypertransport - 600/16bit
NB-SB Hypertransport - 600/16bit
AGP Fast writes - off
These settings are not only rock solid on my system, but they give very nice, concise, round clockrates too -
Proc = (300x8) or 2.4GHz
Memory - (300*8/10) or 240MHz
Once I do the volt mod, I'll probably be able to pull my multi back up to 9 again (and maybe push my ram farther too).
