Yes, that is the divider settings. Set your ram lower by dividing (the ratio) it's speed vs the processor speed.

Your 3200 defaults to 2700 and yes, you would do well when overclocking to have the same speed settings on the dram.

Poor hardware = poor overclock and you are already on a baseline with that motherboard. Choking it with such dram will not allow decent overclocks.

Oh, i see.. But when i used my twin 512's PC2100U, i reached speeds up to 30, and fairly stable, or completely stable, but as soon as i tried to raise it more, voltage, fsb etc. It crashed. And what I mean by crashed, is boot problems. (Black screen, but running comp.)

So.. maybe i should get back to my 2100U's ?

BTW, Thanks for the reply =P

I'm surprised that no one has helped you out yet.

I could be wrong but I think your problem is that you are pushing the memory divider in the wrong direction! From your picture, you're running your DDR-2700 memory at 193MHZ clock and that is excessive. Since your cpu is running with a fsb of 154 and your memory is running with 193, that means your memory divider is 4:5.

Simply drop your memory divider back down to 1:1 and you should be able to set your processor's FSB up to 166MHz at least.

Here is some info for reference:
pc2100 - 133mhz clock, 266mhz data rate
pc2700 - 166mhz clock, 333mhz data rate
pc3200 - 200mhz clock, 400mhz data rate

Since you don't have ideal ram right now, I think you would be best off using your combo of pc2700&pc3200 and avoiding the pc2100.

Let me know if this works for you.

Oh thanks for the reply! It's not very common.. =P

Well, I'm at school right now, so for now on, I can't try it out.. But I'll let you know as soon as I get home! =)

But in some strange reason, my mind tells me that I've also tried 1:1 first, and that why I switched to a 4:5 divider!

But sometimes my brain is playing me some "MindTricks", and I can't just trust it this time!

Well, enough with the bull*****..

I'll try it! =)

Hey again!

This time i've god some bad news... Well.. Not very bad, but sad!
A bit sad anyways!

I've upped my fsb to something.. :S =P

Now I'm running @ 2.88
AND
a 4:5 ratio..
AND
4.125V (I think)

Seems like I've simply misstaken my ratios, because now, I'm only able to choose between 2:3 and 4:5..
I upped it to 2.88 WITH the other settings the same as with 4:5, but I then switched the 4:5 to 2:3...

My computer didn't like it... It screamed like a monkey from that little front panel speaker... Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.. So I quickly turned it off, and reset the BIOS..

Then the same setting as before, WITH a 4:5 ratio...

And as you see, my computer is running.. And running fine!



So now what?

The way I see it you have 3 options:
1. You have a pc2700 and a pc3200 ram. Remove the slow one and with the 4:5 divider you'll be able to gain some MHz
2. If you care about using that slow ram try to find a way to place a divider such as 1:1 or 5:4 or 3:2. A bios update could solve this lack of options.
3. Try to overvolt a bit your ram, let's say +0.1V as this would give you some extra MHz.

P.S. The 2:3 ratio has put your ram at a very high freq ~450MHz, and your weaker ram is rated @333... that's too much for a value ram.

Oh I see..

Well.. the thing is, I know how to do a BIOS flash, but It's just a way to fix it if no other way is possible..

And btw.. How would I succeed with a way to get more ratios..

And how do I manage that.. In case of no new BIOS

In case of no new bios I don't see any way, besides even with new bios, it's possible they didn't implement ant new ratios so that the flash could prove itself useless. Try the first option and the third as it's easier and the results can be noticed right away.

Hmm.. the first one would make me have only 512 RAM..

It's a bit slow, and doesn't give good performance in gaming.. =(

The third one.. As you say, I doubt it myself, that more ratios would be implemented..

=/

Maybe the best thing would be to switch back to my 2x512 PC2100U Dualies?
