Heres some useful information for yu guys which I came up with:

If you are running a 1333Mhz FSB then the max memory bandwidth that could be used is 667Mhz. Even if you clock your ram to 800, it can still only use 667Mhz.

If you are running a 1600Mhz FSB then the max memory bandwidtch that could be used is 800Mhz. Even if you clock the RAM to 1066, it can still only use 800Mhz.

So this means that 1000Mhz or 1066Mhz (and above) memory can't be taken advantage of fully until we see FSB's of 2000 and upwards.

This is why it makes more sense to tighten up the timings which effect the way and speed that the memory deals with each instruction as given by the cpu.

ok last night I messed with the ram i was able to get up to 941mhz in memtest, speed 333/800, timings 4-5-4-15, 2.2v, orthose didnt like those setting and after a minute it stoped with error on cpu #1. cpu was at 2.25v, X8, cpu target 3136mhz and the fsb was 392.

I'm backing it down to a target of 3088 fsb of 386, ram is at all the same above except the mhz is 927. Ive only tested it for about 3 minutes before I went to bed lastnight and it was stable for that time ill let it run for about a half hour today and test it from there with orhose seeing its good in memtest.

any suggestings on tweeking so I can actually get the ram higher without increasing the cpu because that seems to be my problem right now. also the NB has been bumped up two from stock vtt.

tks in advance for the suggestions.

Hey guys, i just got myself 4x1GB PC2-8500 Tracers.

Im going to get a new motherboard, but right now im using them with my P5WDH.

What settings would you recommend for me. I can overclock my cpu upto 8x420Mhz max on this board with current temps.

I have the 2403 BIOS rev. Currently im running on a 1:1 ratio with 840mhz on memory with 4-4-4-12 timings. Also how do i change from CR1 to CR2 ? Is this something in the bios timings section, or in the hardware ?
