Hitoriko, sorry it took so long for someone to assist you. DDR2-1066 memory should work. Have you tried clearing your cmos and trying again? If you're not overclocking the HT Clock speed then I wouldn't worry about adjusting the memory divider. Increasing the CPU multiplier will not effect your memory frequency.

N2Gaming, do you have any thoughts on Hitoriko's issue in regards to setting his memory to 1066?

Dayglo98, I would probably go with either a Athlon II X4 or a Phenom II X4. The Agena core is old and for that amount of money you can get a nice Athlon II/Phenom II. The performance difference is much higher too.

Hope that helps

Well IMO it all depends on his CPU/IMC's ability to handle 1066 and what ram he has . Additionally he may want to change the ram timings for the correct timmings and voltages for DDR2-1066 ram speeds. I have a second set of 2x2 1066 now so I may be able to try it out on my M2N32 SLI Deluxe but I don't want to take my x4 940 out of my sig rig atm to test this theory. I know I had the x4 940 and 2x2GB corsair running in my M2N32 but I don't remember if I was able to run it at DDR2-1066 or not. I think the biggest thing for you to worry about hitoriko is your ram timmings and voltages and if you try to adjust your fsb then you will not be able use DDR2-1066 settings w/any FSB spd over 200MHz give or take a few MHz. Hope this helps. Sorry I did not answer this question. I have been limiting my answers the last few days.

hey guys thanks for the response dont worry that it took so long i can wait im just happy that people i can ask about my probs with this board who know what there on about.

Now i had it at 3200Mhz today for about 45mins, i ran futuremark no worrys so i figured i should give it a propper test jumped into MW2 and 15mins in it crashed - BSOD

Now my settings were basically the same im running now with 3150mhz but i upped the volts and left the rest on [Auto] and changed the FSB to 200Mhz and the multi to x16

no my ram is on auto and it always detects it as ddr 800 and 2t my timings are on the ram and thats what i've been using 5-5-5-15-28 the volts are set to 2.1 now i have both the ram modules in the 2 closest Dimms to the CPU (i've not sure if theres any difference changing them to different slots or using the 2nd dimm solts or using one in each dimm 1 in slot one one in slot 2 if you get my meaning) using unganged mode and SLi memory disabled (although there is an option to overclock the memory from the cpu page is this of any use?)

now im 100% sure i should be able to get 3.2Ghz i really really want to make 3.3Ghz (a full 500Mhz O/C) but at this rate im lost and losing patience.

can you explain what you mean here, the ratio in CPU-z is 1:2 and pretty much cant have the memory go over 220Mhz (via FSB) before the comp goes sideways.

He's just saying if you don't adjust your FSB from 200MHz then your ram spd will not change from it's cmos setting if your only overclocking by using the cpu multiplier. If you adjust your FSB from 200 to say 205-250 you will be overclocking your ram spd or frequency along w/the fsb so you will have to slow your cmos ram spd down from the spd your timmings are set to run at if that makes any sense at all. Basically when you increase your FSB from 200MHz your ram spd will spd up as well. So say your ram is set at DDR-800 and your FSB is 200 but you want to increase your FSB to 225MHz. By doing this you will be increasing your ram spd as well and if your ram timmings are to tight for the new overclocked spd you are attempting to run your ram and cpu at then either you won't be able to boot into windows w/out crashing or you just won't be able to post and either one of these is not good and thus why overclocking mobo's come w/many ram dividers.

so if by defult my ram is 5-5-5-15-24 but is ddr2-1066 i should beable to get my FSB to 267 no problems?

Not if you set your ram spd in the cmos settings to DDR-1066. Maybe if you have your Ram set to DDR-800 or DDR-667. You may be able to run your ram at DDR800 w/a FSB of 267 but I don't know what the ram spd would be at that fsb setting to be honest w/u. Anther thing you could try is to run DDR800 w/the tightest ram timmings you can pull off like 4.4.4.12.18.2T or something along those lines.

Good Luck,

N2G

Thinker, sadly I think I am selling my m2n-sli today and ordering a gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P paired with a callisto x2 545 to try and unlock the cores. This looks like a nice club alas I can't live with 1.325v max vcore

yeah i had my ram at really tight timinings couldnt boot at all nothing - i thought i had fried something to i ahd to ripp the cpu out and then replace and now im here with 3.0ghz :S

i might just set the timings to [AUTO] that way i'll let the comp do the hard work

but i did manage to boot into windows at 3.3Ghz with timings of 4-4-4-12-18 2t @ 667Mhz then it crashed about 3-4mins into windows.

i figure if i loosen the ram timings and up the volts on both cpu and ram i might get to 3.3Ghz FINALLY Light at the end of the tunnel!
