Where do you see my FSB multiplied by? You say yours is 288 x 4, but I dont know where I can get that info, and if its in front of me I dont know how to read it correctly.
Why would you set your PCI-e to 100? What does that do exactly, I have those settings as well, and an option for the PCI to be set to 33.33mhz.
I also dont know how to set my multiplier to 14, mines at 17 at the moment.
I posted in the Intel Mobo forum about some help with these settings since I'm unsure how to doit, but no one has come through with info yet
The ram is set to 2.0v currently.
OK......your cpu FSB is at 235.5.....it is quad pumped so you take that times 4 to get your rate FSB speed of 942 it says on cpuz. One of those gets set in your bios as FSB. If you are using some automatic overclock in the bios it is doing it for you. I dont use those.
THe multiplier is locked in the cpu ......you can't change it. My cpu's is 14......yours is 17. That is how they are supposed to be. Now.....you take the CPU's fSb of 235.5 and multiply it time 17 to get the current rated speed of the cpu .....which is currently 4ghz.
The pci bus should be locked at 33.3 and the pcie should be locked at 100. You dont want them going up because they can damage things. Some people risk it, but it is a risk you shouldnt take.
Check with corsair on the ram voltage. You may be able to increase it a little to get the memory a little higher, but you probably are not going to get that memory much higher, so it might not be worth it. Try to lower the memory to 3;4 and that will give you more room to raise the FSB. Every bit you raise the FSB automatically raises the memory speed. So that is why i'm saying that.
IF you are still unclear tomorrow, i'll download your manual so i can help you through it some more.
