533
post #5 of 10
change it to 667 from auto

it all depends on what your FSB and RAM divider are set at.... download CPUZ and see what your FSBRAM ratio is and also what FSB you are running

the default ram speed for your board might be 533

your ram is already running twice as fast as your cpu (1:2 ratio)... you have a low FSB so 533MHz ram is plenty... if you changed it to 667 you would notice very little increase in performance if any

"On Intel systems, best performance is achieved through highest possible stable operation in synchronous (1:1) CPU:RAM operation. The higher the FSB in 1:1, the better performance. The only exception may be if you have severely limiting RAM and a CPU that is an excellent overclocker. That is up to you to determine, tho. Does a 5:4 divider at a super high CPU clock offer better performance than half the FSB in 1:1? Well then, stick with 5:4. At the same time, running RAM faster than the CPU offers absolutely no performance gains (the CPU is doing the processing, RAM merely receives data as it is fed to it...). I don’t know why motherboard manufacturers even offer dividers to run RAM faster than the CPU, but they do. So, please, for my sake, don’t go setting your CPU bus speed to 133 mhz and DRAM frequency to 200 mhz (or 400 mhz, depending on how your BIOS lists it)"

Your already running a 1:2 ratio so increasing the ram speed even more would be pointless in my opinion
