How do I get a 1:1 Ratio?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was wondering how to get a 1:1 FSB/RAM Ratio with my current setup? The closest I have come was 2:3, any suggestions?

Put the RAM at DDR2 533 speeds when running all at stock. DDR2 533 speeds is the 1:1 ratio, since the FSB is 266MHz

2:3 is actually better See how far you can overclock with that.

Yeah, pay more attention to the CAS timing, RAM voltage and the DDR2 speed. IMHO The ratio is insignificant compared to these values.

2:3 is better than 1:1. 1:2 is ideal.

Read the guide in my signature regarding Intel memory.

more memory bandwith (higher speeds) is more important than timings in the c2d platform.

Thanks for the info guys! I guess that I heard it was tricky to get a 1:1 ratio stable, but if you could it is the perfect setting. The only other way I could get a 1:1 was with my processor at stock, and that did not sound like much of a performance boost when I can OC it to 3.5 and get my memory to 1000mhz.
Off topic but is 5-5-5-15-2T @1000 better than 4-4-4-8-1T @800?

Depends on the application. The 5-5-5-15 has 30 ns of latencies while the 4-4-4-8 has 25 ns of latencies. But the 1000Mhz has more bandwidth.
