So This is wat i did b4 reading this thread ,i left the voltage for memory on auto , and i increased the 200mhz FSB to 220mhz . Vcore = auto Multi**= defualt = x11. I went into my OS everything loaded fine xcept it crashes whenever i play a game why i dont know why .I mean am i missin something there ?
when you have changed any settings you need to do a stability test to check your settings will work. OCCT is a good test, just use the test function instead of torture, should take 30 mins.
As MK said, your temps are high. Aim to keep your temps below 50°C if possible, and definitely below 55°C under load ie during OCCT. If they exceed this even with stock voltages then you'll need better cooling before you begin. The Thermaltake Big Typhoon would be a good choice.
The relationship between memory and CPU us that they both work off the FSB (HTT) so as you raise this you raise both memory and CPU speed.
If you don't have good overclocking ram then you can get around this by setting a divider. This is in your mobo's bios settings, probably under DRAM and then Memclock.
This is in relation to your FSB(HTT). Eg. 5/6th (166/200) is 5/6th of your current FSB Eg. 250 FSB with a 5/6th divider = 208Mhz memory speed.
