it's the Reference Clock, not the NB frequency... two totally different things.

you only need to turn up your Ref. Clock if you have ram like mine, which is 1150Mhz, or if you have better stability with higher Ref. Clocks and lower CPU Multi's. i use a 216 Ref. Clock which gives me 1152MHz on the 1066MHz multiplier, but it always gives me non-even CPU OC numbers... i'm a lil OCD like that

anyone else have this same stepping? wondering because i didn't see it in the chart, and what exactly does it all mean? Does certain steppings oc better than others? I see several different ones in the list.

so setting the Ref Clock at 200Mhz will give you these effective frequencies for the RAM... 400MHz is 400MHz, 533MHz is 533MHz, 667MHz is 667MHz, 800MHz is 800MHz, 1066MHz is 1066MHz.

now, setting the ref clock to 250MHz will give you these... 500MHz is the 400MHz setting, 667MHz is the 533MHz setting, 833 is the 667MHz setting, 1000MHz is the 800Mhz setting, and 1333MHz is the 1066Mhz setting.

so if you have PC2-8500 ram - 1066MHz - then you need to set your ram multiplier to whatever the effective frequency is that won't go over 1066MHz... unless you want to overclock your ram. get it?
Ok im following you, that's what i was suspecting, but where is this RAM multiplyer you speak of?

Tried to lower the freq to 887Hz... didnt even post

So i shud leave it at what the 1067 setting is, even if it says 1333? Don't exactly want to overclock my RAM

Are you saying you have underclocked (loosened) your RAM and it can't even post? That's weird.....

If I may ask, why are you overclocking your system using the HTbus (aka RefClock)? Where you can use the Clock MP to OC? That's why the 940 is a BE...it has an unlocked MP . This way you can OC without OCing your RAM.

@kairi_zeroblade: Nice!! What are your temps?

I had a little fun today

I got jipped on the CPUz....But I did 4.1 ghz (WOOT!!) if I would have spent more time I could hit over 4.2 (Booted into vista @4.2ghz....Just needed a little tweaking).

This was my first ever 1ghz OC!

<--- is very happy
