FSB:DRAM ratio - Page 2

yes, at 1080 for the cpu, the memory needs to be set at 540!!! On the options when you are in the menu for changing frequencies, the option change cpu and mem individually should be set, so you can change both the cpu and mem individually. cpu=1080 mem=540

Ok so I have a question. After it would start, I set it to 970 and it it wouldnt start. It started to load windows, but then it stopped. Remember vcore was set to auto as well. I lowered it to 960 and here I am now. Why is this? I believe since the cpu muliplier is 14x then if it was at 970, then wouldnt that be an equivelant to 970 divided by 4 then multiplied by 14 to get the speed in Ghz? And that wuold be close to 3.4 right? Why wont windows start at 970?

Edit: On those setting that I tried, I left the memory to be 667. Do I need to change this?

Also, one quick thing; is my motherboard decent for overclocking?
Better than mine, although same chipset, and I'm at 4073Mhz, at 38C load... No, your board sucks as much as mine, but it will get you high enough...

Alright, I'll try that. I know what you mean about where to put in the mem speed.

Could you try to answer my quesion why it wont start at 970 but at 960? I still dont get that part.

to answer that question would be like trying to explain the meaning of life... I juust don't know. You say at 970 it won't boot, but at what memory speed?

At 970 you memory should have been set at 485...

Alright so I just tried 1080, vcore auto, and mem 540 right? And it didnt boot. No, when at 970, mem was not 485. Right now I put it back to where I had it before which was 960 and I changed mem to 480. Should I try 970 with 485, or what else do you want me to try?

Do you have to do anything else besides setting the mem number according to the cpu clock number? I dont understand why people increase vcore and one one of the sticky topics I believe it was something like "101 overclocking" said something about you have to "loosen" mem timings. I know a little about mem timings but not a lot. My corsair ram has a sticker on the side of it that says 4-4-4-12 latency I believe. Or is it 15? Nope its 12, I just checked. So why do people do these things?

Woa dude, your from Sac. Me too! Well right below (Elk Grove)

I have same ram, c4 revision right? timings are 4-4-4-12-15 on 1t...

Try the 960 at 480 on the ram side, leave all voltage settings at auto, and the timings at auto. Don't worry about timings until you get the fsb raised to where you want it... Under advanced go to cpu options or whatever, it's the third one down in the advanced options menu. Disable the thermal stepping option or whatever(really sounds like I know what I'm doing huh? lol) I don't understand why you would have difficulty with such a low fsb... Adeoliver, Chozart, SDumper, want to chime in?

From Fair Oaks area, you?(Elk Grove, what high school were you from?)

Alright Ill try that and disabling the thermal stepping option. Be right back (hopefully lol)

Edit:

Wait Im at 960, 480 right now. Its the 970 and without touching the mem speed (which would be 667 defualt). Did you want me to try 970, 485 and diable thermal stepping?

Keep trying the 1080 settings but up the vcore between 1.30 and 1.375 to see if that helops. It takes a while, but you will eventually find the vcore that fits that setting. Overclocking is kinda like snowflakes, two are never the same. Only recent studies have shown multiple cases of discoveries of exact same snowflakes, so whatever...

Alright man, thanks for the help. Ill mess with the setting around the 1080 range and when I get back, Ill let you know what happened. By the way, still disable thermal stepping and try 1080 settings? meaning mem speed should be 540 right?

To your question a little while ago, I go to Elk Grove High.
