Need help overclocking A8N32-SLI

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, my old A8N-SLI Premium went all squirelly finally, so I got a good deal on this A8N32 I installed yesterday along with water cooling, but I am having a hard time with this BIOS, it is more complex than I am used to.

The trouble I am having is how to get the RAM to run at 255 1:1 with the FSB. In BIOS, I can set the FSB to 255, but the memory clock shows as 165 MHz in CPU-Z and CBid, and I don't see anywhere in the memory setting to manually set the freq for memory, other than the option for limit or auto. In Auto, it shows as the 165 MHz and in Limit mode, I can only choose predetermined values, the highest of which is 250 MHz. Can anyone who has this board help me with the BIOS options? I know this socket 939 stuff is getting old now, but the only things I can find here were on how to set a divider, which I don't want. Thanks.

If you want it on 1:1 divider, in the memory settings go for 200mhz.

If that didn't help I misunderstood your question, please get screenies of your bios and such if you can.
