Finding my Max HTT, FSB, Ram

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello OC

First of all you need to know my specs
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
Opteron 146 Caybe 0543FMPW
2 x 512 MB Kingston HyperX PC3500
400 Watt PSU from NorthQ


I have fellowed the guide http://www.overclock.net/faqs/31782-...limits-my.html

and my results are very weird.

the guide recommand that you set your memory to 200 (1:2)
I did that and my results:

HTT= MAX 310 MHz
(Multiplier 7x)
(DDR 200)
HT=3x

But when I turned my Ram to AUTO the results was a lot different.
HTT= MAX 340 MHz
(Multiplier 7x)
(DDR 266 (auto))
HT=3x

My CPU MAX
FSB 300
Multi 10x
(DDR Auto)
Vcore 1.5v

Memory i didt understand but i Know there can be pushed to 217 MHz = 434 MHz


Could someone pls help me and telling me what I have don Wrong?

When you are finding out your maxes for the FSB, RAM, and CPU, you have to find them out individually. Only then will you know which part is the culprit if the system crashes. So from what you said so far, you have found the max for your RAM. Since the RAM is DDR (double data rate), the speed is doubled so your 217 will equal to 437. Turn off the auto for the RAM, since DDR3500 is not officially recognized and put it back to DDR400 which will be a 1:1 ratio to the FSB.

Try to follow through the guide to find your maxes for the FSB and CPU. Any more Q's feel free to post. Also, don't forget to fill out your system specs in the User CP. That way you don't have to repost your system specs everytime you post.

You haven't found the maximum for your memory. It's best to not leave your memory at auto. When the guide recommended the 200 setting, it did not mean the 1:2 divider.
I would bet it meant the 1:1 divider (400). Alot of bios's are different, and they all have different terms, and numbers which mean the same thing. Seems you just got confused. It's normal.
To find your memory maximum, put your cpu multi to say 9, and your FSB to 215. Keep your memory divider at 400 1:1. Now all you have to do is keep increasing your FSB until it isn't stable, then apply more memory voltage, and retest. Dont go over 2.8 volts.
Main thing is reading more overclocking guides, it's too difficult to explain simply.
