memclock bios/overclock questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Been reading the OC guide, but still have a couple questions.

When the memclock setting is set to limit, it lists a set of frequencies. Isn't this just a divider?? Is it (fsb x mult / limit setting)?

I cranked up my FSB to 220 and set the memclock limit to 183. According to cpuz the memory divider was 11 and ram speed was 400. Even though ram was running at 400, I saw an increase in bandwidth by about 10%. Does that mean my potential memory overclock will be lower even at the same clock because of the faster cpu speed?

Is 1100 (220x5) too fast for HTT? I've seen people recommend dropping the mult. to 8x in general, does it make much difference? Don't want to risk HDD corruption.

Just trying for a modest/stable OC.

Thanks

Yes, you will see an increase in memory bandwidth as your CPU is now faster.
No real advantage to running your HTT at 1100Mhz, might as well drop it down to the 4x multi for extra stability

Thanks.

More questions, hehe.

Does the higher memory bandwidth caused by the cpu OC have any affect on the OC'ability (max clock speed) of the RAM?

Would I be better off going with 250 FSB, 9x CPU mult. 4x HTT mult, and keeping my mem. divider the same? Should give me 2250 CPU, 1000 HTT, and 204.5x2=409 mem.

Should the clocks always be some even # or multiple of each other?
