A couple DS3 overclocking questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was wondering if someone could clarify a few things regarding overclocking for me please.

What is the MCH setting in the bios? I've read to raise it by a couple notches but I haven't found an explanation for it.

Also, can I have the memory divider explained to me please? I understand that a setting of '2' is 1:1 but beyond that i'm lost. Can I use this setting to test how high I can overclock my ram without taxing the rest of the system?

Thanks.

I'm kind of new to this, but can help you with one of your questions:

(G)MCH is the Northbridge chip.... what you gain by overvolting that I don't know!

(I found that info here)

Sorry I can't be more help!
