(SOLVED) DRAM frequency

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
More info about my ram:
http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Silverline/991768.aspx

As you can see,my sig are my current spec. I did a lot of reading, how ever still can't find a solution to mine. I want to change my DRAM frequency (1333MHz) but the problem here, the option was disable (greyed out). Or maybe I can adjust from voltage etc. I just want try to OC for a little. Currently my FSB: DRAM ratio is 3:10 but I read some people get a closer ratio. TQ... ninja.gif

I hate to tell you this, but you shouldn't overclock. You may KILL that board if you OC a smidge with an unlocked processor
the 3+1 phase VRM on MSI branding is far, far from suitable for use with Phenom II quads that consume more power
(read the links in my sig for more info)
(to everyone else who may be reading this, ignore the choke closest to the 4-pin, that's unrelated; this is definitely 3+1 not 4+1)

This board is basically something you could throw in a prebuilt and leave be. It is not meant for overclocking at all - not just because of VRM, but the chipset, AM2 base design, limited features support, limited BIOS memory frequency support...
You will need a new board. You may also need new RAM, because generic 1333 CL9 RAM not meant for OC.

Oh and if you're wondering about the FSB-DRAM ratio, that doesn't matter any more on the new AM3 platform. You can set whatever FSB-DRAM ratio... you won't lose performance from something such as 15:3049. This is due to the integrated memory controller architecture used since 2003.

So, I will forget about ram OCing. BTW out from the topic, between my current mobo and ASUS M4N68T-M V2, which is better for OCing? All I know, both are cheap and low spec. And I'm planning to do a low OCing for 24/7 use. Or should I just leave it just like the way it is.

The ASUS m4N68T-M V2 is the safer board in terms of VRM setup (4 phase and protection), but it's not really as suited for overclocking either due to nVidia chipset and the 4 phase power. You ideally want a quality 4+1 phase power on AMD chipset for ideal AM3 overclocking on 125W processors. Try a 760G board from Gigabyte or ASUS.

My supplier replaced my ASUS M4N68T-M V2 after I fry it less than 24 hour at home with my current mobo. He claimed its a better one. BTW, thank you for the response. I'm thinking of building another pc, which is mid spec for gaming 24/7 and for moderate OCing.

You fried an M4N68T-M V2? Or am I reading this wrong?
I don't even think that's possible...

I don't even know how did i fried it. I try to mess up with BIOS setting. The last thing I know, only the power light was on, noisy fan, then quite after <1 minute, unable to turn on, a new less interactive mobo. Supplier claimed manufacturing fault. confused.gif

That's odd, what BIOS settings did you touch? Anything to do with the CPU?

Enable the unlcok core, then I don't remember the rest. Now I'm using my old cpu cause they told me my cpu are okay. But now. I'm having another problem. Not sure whether it's mobo or cpu problem. I post it at http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/1084966-cpu-multiplier-fsb-messed-up.html What do you think that caused this? Sorry for out of memory topic biggrin.gif

Hm, where did the frying occur on the ASUS board... was there a visibly damaged area to the left of the CPU socket? Did you ever try powering up without the CPU power connector installed?
ASUS boards should protect long before VRM failure... it could've failed for other reasons
(I've also perhaps answered your question in the other thread)
