with the cpu at 200mhz the dram is 100, 133, 166, 200mhz
Well, it would be better if all the RAM is matching, because the RAM will only run as fast as the slowest chip. So just for testing purposes, run 2 matching
512 sticks. You more than likely wont notice a difference by adding the 2 256 sticks. So just leave them out.
With the CPU @ 200 run the DRAM setting @ 200. Then youll have a 1:1 ratio. As you increase the CPU clock youll want to lower the DRAM to 166 then 133, depending on how high you can get the cpu clock to go. The goal here is to keep around 200, after upping the CPU clock.
As for the HT (multithreading) its normal run speed is 1000mhz (1ghz) @ 200 cpu clock. As you raise the cpu clock the HT will raise with it. So once you start upping the CPU lower your HT to 800. Then every time you up the cpu clock get in to windows then run CPUZ. You'll want to keep HT below 1000mhz, anything between 750 and 1000 mhz is fine really. You wont notice a difference there either.
So in a nutshell, set your HT to 800, set your DRAM to 166, then add 10 mhz to your CPU clock. Once in windows, run cpuz check your settings make sure RAM is below 200 and HT below 1000. Run orthos, OCCT or SnM for about 5 minutes (watch temps in coretemp, if you havent downloaded it do so here
), you wants core temp to stay below 65*C). Make sure its stable. Then add 10more mhz to the cpu clock.
Whats your vcore set to? Because the more you up your core voltage the lower your max temp will be.
Hope this helps
