Are you going to be overclocking?? If so set your ram to 2:8 and the MB will adjust the frequency accordingly
Yes, I'll definetly be overclocking. Now are you referring to the RAM or the cpu. The cpu I definetly will, as far as the RAM I'm not sure. I've never really read up on how to OC RAM.

I understand it supports up to 3 way sli. my question was more in regards to use the 9800 GX2's w/ the board. Since they are dual gpu boards, wouldn't this technically be quad sli? Or am I looking at this the wrong way? lol.

You're looking at it the wrong way. Running (2) GX2's is fine.

thanks for the clarification. So just to recap...even tho the specs for the mobo state that it supports up to 1600 DDR3, this is adjustable in bios?

I have a SLI LE (757) board and recently updated to the latest bios. I am down clocking to 3.4Ghz. I have to change my fsb dram ratio to 2:10 to run my ram at 1600mhz. The problem is... it shows up fine in the bios, but CPU-Z and EVGA E-Leet are showing my ratio as 2:8 still. So it is currently running my ram at 1300mhz. Anyone know why my ratio won't show up correctly in these tools?

Well I dont know all the technical terms to explain but.... I believe RAM frequency clocks itself to match the processing power of you cpu. You cant make it run at a higher frequency than what is needed for it to communicate with the cpu. Cpu and ram have to run in sync with each other in order for it to work properly. Someone please explain this better than I can and please correct me if I'm wrong so I can learn something new....

To answer your question more clearly. It doesn't matter what you set your RAM frequency to in the bios, because your bios automatically sets your RAM frequency based on your cpu clock speed.

Whats your vcore at? Im just curious cause i recently downclocked my 930 to 3.5 with a vcore of 1.9#$ somethn while primming. I left all my other settings on auto and im stable. 24 hrs of all three levels of prime.
