Anyway. With the ram options go to Advanced > Dram Config > Max MemClock and select 133 mhz

Then in the same menu there is a 1t/2t memory timing.....choose 2t.

Leave the timings as they are for now

Try and boot with those settings and with the FSB at 272 x 11 with the HTT x 3

Also, disable PEG by going to Advanced > PEG Link Mode - Disable

This sometimes helps to stabilize an overclock
Ok, i just tried this, my ram can only go to 200 mhz. No lower. I can do everything else but that.

instead of trying to boot with the ram at 200 i left it and returned to my last stable settings. Plus, my ram was already at 2T.

Right now my settings are
Multiplier - 10x
FSB - 290
PCI E - 110
Voltage 1.55
HTT - 3x

What do you think I should do?

Should I just leave everything the way it is?

Try putting the PCI-e Frequency to 100mhz

Running at 200mhz means its on 1:1 with the cpu. So your ram is currently running at 290/580mhz the same speed as your FSB.

Do you have CPU-z installed? If so can you run it and go to the page where it shows your RAM timings

If you don't have it just google for cpu-z and download/install it

I have CPU-Z.

Here are my ram timings etc:
Frequency: 194.8 Mhz
FSBRAM: CPU/15
RAS# to CAS# Delay: 3 clocks
RAS# PreCharge: 3 Clocks
Cycle Time: 6 Clocks
Blank Cycle Time: 19 Clocks
Command Rate: 2T
DRAM Idle Timer:16 Clocks

look good?

I see im going to need a new cooling device to break 3 ghz (duh!) so I am going to try for that later.

Right now, I just want to know what I need to do to get my RAM on 1:1 with my CPU so things work smoothly.

Thanks

To get your ram to run 1:1 you select MemClock Limit to 200mhz in the bios
