Changing memory settings?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Im new to Overclocking but ive got the general idea of how its done, my motherboard is an Asus MV2 and i have an AMD x2 4200, the bios has options to change the multiplyer currently at 11x, from 11x down to 2x and i can change the FSB which is at 200, i understand that the FSB cant be higher than the memorys mhz, i read about there being a ratio of 5:4, if you lower the Memory Mhz you can raise the FSB but my i have no option to change my Memorys Mhz.. is there software that i can use to do that or is there another way? my bios actualy have Pre-defined Overclocking settings i can choose between 3-5-10-15-20-30% overclocking but windows doesnt start after 5%, so im trying to do it manualy. can anyone help? thanks

First fill out your system specs... then is your memory DDR or DDR2?

There is a memory speed in that board somewhere... I just don't know where. Look for cpu/dimm ratio , dimm freq, mem freq, options.

with DDR2 usually you want to run a 2:3 or other ration since the ram can run faster than the FSB

oh okay cool, but how do i get to change my memory frequency.. i seen something in my bios about memory but there was only 4 settings e.g 400, 644,etc the 644 is just a guess it was 4 different numbers higher than eachother, if i change the 400 to a higher setting will i be able to raise the FSB and keep it stable.
post #7 of 9
yes the 400 is a 1:1 Ration and unless you plan on having your FSB near 400 then yes you can use 644

keep your memory at 400 that way it will rise with the FSB and still be in the limits depending on what type of ram it is E.G. ddr2-533, ddr2-667 or ddr2-800

okay i changed my FSB to 205 and restarted my computer it ran fine with no flaws, so i tried then for 210 and when i restarted the computer not even the start setup or bio's loaded just blackness, so i had to take out my Motherboard battery to reset my settings...any idea why it did this?
