Overclock on P4 630 with Abit AW8-Max Problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Currently having issues overclocking,

Im running DDR2 2X1gb 6400 Ram with a P4 630 3Ghz (4X200mhz)

I cant seem to set the Ram to 1:1 and its at 3:5 at the moment in the bios

Anyone know of a way to over-ride this at all?

Most BIOSes set dividers either explicitly (e.g. 1:1) or indirectly by setting RAM speed (e.g. DDR2-400, DDR2-800). I'm guessing it's not the former as that should be fairly easy to find. Check out the BIOS for options relating to RAM speed. It may be set on auto or to a DDR2 speed. Set it back to the stock speed of the processor, and see if that doesn't clear things up.

Before you do so, run a few benchmarks to compare with the after condition. Sometime there is an advantage to running RAM faster than the CPU as you are doing now.
