Could someone please simplify things for me as i am feeling a bit of a noob at the moment... Thanks

There are some really great guides to read through on those topics here on OCN, but I'll try to give you the basic idea right now.

Short answer... yes, Ram speed is connected to the reference clock, so as your reference clock speeds go up, so does your ram. To keep the ram stable, it is recommended to lower the "divider" (ram speed setting) to keep the ram running close to the stock speed.

The term "divider" comes from the fact that the ram speed setting is usually based off of the reference clock, and the different settings are expressed as a ratio of that reference clock. In other words, as you lower the speed of the ram, you are dividing by a larger number, which makes the ram run slower.

Changing the multiplier can be helpful at times, especially if your board is capable of high reference clock speeds, because theoretically if you have two OCs, one using high reference clock speeds, and the other a high multi. The First setup SHOULD be faster, because all the other components should be running faster as well, not just the CPU.

Certain board manufactures find some sort of twisted pleasure in hiding the important parts of the BIOS, which is likely what is happening to you. You should be able to find where the settings are if you look for a manual (or someone around here has experience with the board... unfortunately, I do not, so I'm not much help here).

Hope that helps out a bit.

And welcome to the forum, this place is great .

Hey, Thanks for the quick reply , Things are a little clearer now, however even though i know how to unlock the hidden bios settings to change the reference clock and multipyer etc (Ctrl+F1) theres still nothing about voltage. Is it possible that GIGABYTE have completly removed these options from the bios?

Thanks again for your help, I just hope i don't have to buy a better board.

OK,
I have contacted GIGABYTE and they tell me that the board/BIOS doesn't have an option for overvoltage, is there any other way i can change the voltage of my Memory/CPU without using the crappy bios?

Thanks
