ZOMG 1:1 Ratio!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The title says it all, is it good or bad to have a 1:1 FSB/Memory Ratio
CPU Bus Speed: 1333/4= 333MHz
RAM Speed: 667/2= 333MHz

So I'm on a 1:1 ratio, is that good or bad?

your memory is 667 so its running stock, so thats not bad

It's not bad, it's perfectly fine.

But there can be benefits from running your RAM faster.

Basically if it can run faster, run it faster, timings don't really affect C2D much.

Oh, because I've heard people say 1:1 is unstable...

They would say that if their RAM wasnt capable of hitting a 1:1 with whatever OC they had going. But really a 1:1 is about the slowest you can even run now, the way ram speeds are. I can hit 960mhz tops w/ my OCZ crap, and can run 1:1 there w/ issues. But no way in hell would a 4:5 run stable on those IC's...

just a lil thought/question here - not to digress but..

Why the heck do CD2s only have a 333MHZ FSB? (I mean, compared to their other chips..)

***? Its the highest FSB supported by Intel to date...what do you mean..only 333? Its quad-pumped so its 1333 effective FSB.

I would keep a 1:1 ratio if at all possible, which is really easy to do with an e6600 considering the highest 9x multiplier. In your case, however, if you go much over 333 FSB you may want to use a multiplier if your RAM can't handle it.

The FSB is not 333MHz, it's 333MHz x 4 or 1333MHz, because Intel has QDR (Quad Data Rate, or "Quad Pumped" as many like to call it) on most of their newer CPUs like the C2D. The MOTHERBOARD FSB, however, is 333MHz in that case.... meaning DDR (double data rate) memory is 333MHz x 2 or 666MHz.
