should i achieve higher FSBs with DDR500?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey i was wondering if using ddr500 would raise my fsb limit? the reason i ask is i cant seem to get my memory bus speed to go past 255 average.. if i have it at 255 average does that mean my RAM is running at 510 mhz (assuming im using 1:1 divider)?? or does it mean my RAM is running at just 255 mhz? is there anything my build should be able to do that a ddr400-rated RAM build couldnt do?

yee that's correct.

Well...your ram is running 255mhz.. (510 DDR).

Other than that you're right...

You can do the same FSB no matter what ram...it's all about dividers...

Sideburns Speaks!

What hes saying is that, DDR500 means that your RAM is rated to run a 1:1 ratio with your FSB up to 250Mhz with all the stock timings and such. Someone like me that only has DDR400 would normally have to run a 4:5 divider to OC without messing with the RAM timings.
