Memory divider not working

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm new to the forum.
I'm investing some time in the basics of overclocking just to gain a few Mhz on the cpu.
I have a Gigabyte board (GA M55S S3) and upgraded my CPU to a X2 555 BE recently. The latest BIOS firmware made the processor compatible but the original board was designed for the AM2 socket. I tried first raising the CPU multiplier but for some reason the computer won't go to windows if the multiplier isn't left to the default value. Raising the FSB works and I can lock the PCI and PCI-E buses but I can't do anything about the memory which means it's overclocked as well. There is an option called the memory divider but it won't do anything and I tried several values already. I'm afraid of leaving my PC5300 modules at speeds they aren't built for. What can I do to help this. I realize you are probably missing some info some feel free to ask. I check my settings with CPU-Z.

I'd like to know if there is any software program for Windows that would startup at loggin where you could adjust the memory divider? Thanks.

What speed is it running at exactly that you are afraid of?

I'd say about 400Mhz.

I've been busy lately trying to figure out why the ration of my BE processor won't unlock. If I could change the ratio there would be no problem with the memory. Someone is helping me out with this but we are running out of ideas.
