What do you mean by "it dies at a 1:1 ratio"?
Just to confirm you are doing it correctly. Set everything back to stock. CPU Frequency should be 266. Set RAM to DDR2-533 or whatever the settings are on the mobo. but make sure you see the RAM number double the CPU Frequency.
This confirms you are running 1:1. Then start to OC the CPU when RAM is on stock. One way to approach it.

do you have C1E and spead spectrum disabled? you have good ram, i cant see that being the culprit. i have ocz special ops ram, and can get 3.8 ghz outta my e6600 with the 9x multi, but its too dern hot, and too many core volts are needed, IMO.

Are you running the latest bios?


Let's just make sure that you are running unlinked and you have disabled spread spectrum with in the bios.

Also when you crank here up. Are you raising the CPU frequency only?
Leave the ram frequency at stock settings.

How high to you want to go.

Check out my sig rig, these are my settings for my C2D. Plus, remember, you are on air, and on air with a decent air cooler, so watch your temps. DOn't worry about the ram timings or the ratio just yet, just get your CPU where you want it at, and then after that tweak the other settings.

Hi G|F.E.A.D|Killa,

See if you have a ram divider called "sync" or something like that. On my P5N-E SLI (i650 chipset) the divider that the CMOS setup calls "1:1" is actually 2:1. On the P5N-E SLI you have to select the divider that the CMOS setup calls "sync" to actually be running your ram at 1:1.

As a test, set your multiplier 9x, your FSB at 200mhz (which = 800mhz quad pumped) and your ram divider at "1:1". This setting should boot into windows no matter what. After windows loads, run CPU-Z and click the "Memory tab". If it shows your memory frequency as 400mhz your divider really is 1:1. If it shows your memory frequency as 800mhz, then you're actually running a 2:1 divider.
