I realise now that 1:1 just isn´t happening automatically... no instructions in manual or in FAQ on ASrock`s webby.

Put the board into 1600FSB mode via a jumper setting, it allowed me to specify "400MHz DDR2 800" here but still does not post.

anyone have any ideas? thanks in advance

Oh, also, Memory (being DDR2) is dual pumped (so running at 400Mhz at double data rate is 800Mhz effective). When you set your fsb to 400, you were overclocking the ram to 1600 (your board does not provide the memory multiplier per say, just settings of what the speeds would be. that's why you see "667" then in parenthesis "(actual current speed w/ this setting)" and "800" "(actual current speed with this setting)"

Your ram would be running at 1600 with the 800mhz setting. I would set it back to the 667 setting for now (if that's as low as you can go), and increase the fsb until you see "(800)" next to it as that is your actual current speed.

At 200MHz FSB you need a 2:1 ratio for your RAM to be at 800MHz (400MHz real clock).
post #4033 of 4653
hey, thanks for the replies!

i think the actual problem is that when i set it to 667 or anything else for that matter, it's actually talking about the DDR speed so 667(x2=ddr 1333?) mode is actually brutally overclocking my ram.

I'm fairly sure this mobo has a crappy bios as there seem to be no real memory options beyond manual timing and voltage - everything else is on a take it or leave it menu directly from the fsb settings...

as you said, i've been trying to fiddle with multis and fsb settings whilst keeping the ram speeds as close to or at 400(x2=800mhz) but it's fairly limiting trying to overclock like this...

at 266 fsb the memory checked out pretty good in memtest but shortly after i started playing some MW2 the system just crashed out - admittedly it's been running at default voltages, i might try and push the cpu over 1.3v and try again.

figured i can go for very humble o/c or just buy some new ram... whilst i made a small mistake in getting a board with limited bios it does at least support both ddr2 and ddr3 which was supposed to be a future upgrade

i'm waiting until tomorrow for these 9.12 catalyst drivers before i RMA what seems to be a broken HD4850 (vertical screen crashes in certain games). Any suggestions as to what kinda ram i should grab?

thanks for the help, much appreciated!

Just depends what FSB strap you use. For 2:1 you need 800MHz I think. For 1:1 I think it needs to be 1600MHz.

I meant that you get a bigger bandwidth by having a higher FSB instead of a higher multiplier, though both are 3.8Ghz.

Let's just say it like this:
100mhz x 2 = 200mhz
200mhz x 1 = 200mhz as well, but this is faster.
Cool that's good to know.

As for my cooler, I've reseated it and it still is idling at 44*C... guh must be a bad chip or something. To make matters worse, my P35C-DS3R killed 2 sets of ram within a weeks time. There was no overclocking of the ram at all... So both ram and mobo are being RMA'd. I might try the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P to see how that goes. I'll be lapping my CPU and heatsink during this downtime so hopefully I'll be back with better results.

It was cold morning today so i thought i might see how far does my e5200 go.
It turns out pretty far.



Cooled with zalman 9700
Unfortunately it hits fsb wall at 378.

Don't worry, mine is quite hot at stock too. But it sounds like your mobo is having issues indeed. I hope RMA comes back soon. What's your PSU? Sounds like it might be leaking, if it's a crap brand.

Gigabyte RMA sucks the rod. It will be a month before I get another mobo... So I caved and bought the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P. Ram should be here next week as well. Lapping will take place this weekend. Hopefully everything will be back and running early next week.
As for the PSU, it's a Corsair 520W which is supposed to be awesome but who knows. How would you test it?

Nearly every company I've RMA'd with has taken a month to get a return when using standard shipping methods. This is normal.
