Exactly, thats all they do. I believe there is no way to have your RAM running slower than your fsb on this board, not sure though.

I will see the exact settings in 15 mins, as I am about to go for 3.5 now. Maybe consider, dropping to 8x multiplier 435fsb=3480Mhz ddr2-1088 at maybe 4-4-4-12.
Dropping your multiplier will increase NBCC and thus decrease NB stability. It has recently been proven that 400Mhz x 9 (3.6Ghz) is faster than 526 x 7 (3.61Ghz).

400 x 9 is the golden number for the E6600 unless you can do over 475Mhz FSB on the stock multi. Higher FSB with lower multi is either slower or no faster. It is also less stable.

DDR2-778 = 1:1
DDR2-973 = 4:5
DDR2-1167 = 2:3
DDR2-1556 = 2:1


^^^^^with using a fsb speed of 389.







Edit: read this thread, devolop your own opinion if there is an increase in performance. I saw a 8k difference in AM3 and maybe a 1% difference in fear byt have ddr2-1167 5-5-5-10 vs ddr2-778 3-3-3-9

Manual and I discussed this. A 2:1 ratio (Mem:FSB) will remove the memory bottleneck on the CPU. If you are doing highly CPU intensive operations (which FEAR is not), you will notice a difference.

True, now that I think of it. Good call

I just downloaded the latest version of Asus Update 7.09.02 and under the "options" section, there is an "Environment Settings" section which appears to allow the BIOS to be down and well as up-graded...

Have a look at the screenshot .



Does this mean what I think it means?

I think I may get a Intel Bad Axe 2.... LOL I am going through motherboards like wild fire. I just don't think I am happy with this one.

BX2 got a ~480mhz FSB on XS. You'll be happy with that one, but I don't see why you aren't happy with the P5B Deluxe.

No where near as good as my P5W. Sure the P5B (P965) can hit crazy high FSB, but at a cost of latencies. It seems that the latencies are not recoverable unless you get into extreme cooling and highly modified motherboards.

The P5W is a great board. Never had to hope it would POST or not after a failed overclock, it always did (not true with P5B). I am confident that the P5W is a better board. However, the Bad Axe 2 is even better (or the ASUS P5W64 WS Pro) because of limited Vdroop, NB strap control, and overall stability.

I know everyone loves the P5B. I guess I am just way to used to the 975X.

The ASUS P5W64 WS Pro would be a good choice
