I read the read here first OC post and...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have a few questions that I need to understand first before I do the final step towards ocing.

After finding the max fsb speed of the mobo =260 is stable. I went on to find the max ram part where it says to lower to 1 to 1 ratio. This put the ram at 133mhz. Well as in the guide my ram seems to be able to surpass the 260 fsb that the mobo will do but if the ram is at 1 to 1 isn't that slowing down the ram for it is not running at max? Because in cpuz it says the ram is at 125mhz when my multi is a 8 and fsb is at 260 I thought the 1 to 1 would mean that the ram would be at 260 mas well?

If those steps are done correctly then The third step is to find my max CPU speed. But it does not mention if you bring the ram back to 200mhz or leave it at the 1to 1 ratio.
I just want to make sure that I am doing all this right so I don't have to go back and run lots of hours of memtest and prime 95 all over again.

Okay, First of all, Cool'N'Quiet off?

For max CPU speed, Do whatever you can, lower FSB, Higher FSB, Low multi, High multi, Whatever you can to get the core cranked up there!

Good luck!

cool and quiet off--- Absolutly

But should I leave the ram divider at a 1to1 ratio before going to the cpu max?

The guide offers to get as close to max settings to obtain a max cpu oc I have no problem with trying all things there. I jus tneed to understand the ram divider better.

1 to 1 ratio is a no, you need a divider to reach the max cpu overclock if you go 1:1 you will only reach the memory max and not the cpu. for example my cpu max is 2700mhz. my ram would be over 500mhz with a 1:1 ratio. so how do i do it? my memory is at 333mhz. which is 166mhz which is a 5:4 ratio i belive correct me if im wrong. so if i set my cpu at the memory max which is 230mhz. At 230mhz my cpu is limited to a wopping 2530mhz. so 270x10 is 2700mhz 333 on the ram works out to 225mhz on the ram so my ram is now running at 450mhz and my cpu 2700mhz. make sure you dont use a x5 mutilpler on th ht or it wont boot.

Basically the whole procedure is about testing each subsystem SEPERATELY to determine each component's respective MAX Overclock.

Once you know these 2 details it will make the rest of the process go much more smoothly (less memtesting, prime 95ing, cursing and hair pulling)

The divider slows the memory down so that you can find the processor max overclock.

a divider can be your best friend when OCing your system, too.

as rcantec pointed out.

Great help thanks
Still a bit short on some things being that I don't have some options in my bios like HT multplier. for my Ht I can only select freq like 1000 800 400 200
I have the reg multipler is up to 12x if thats what you mean.
I had a clock of 2600 low but higer than stock with the 133 of 1to1 ratio and BF2 crashed so something was wrong.
I am going to look back in the bios to post back what I see to get more help.

I used to own that very same mobo.

The HTT freq is the LDT multi.

1000 would be 5x 800 = 4x etc.

you always want to keep that as close to 1000 or under.

so if you have a 240 mem frequency then set it to 800 this will give you a 960
HTT which is fine.

anything over about 1100 will start to cause problems with stability.

Ahhhhhhhhh now it is all starting to make sence now. i think I may have a grasp on it now.
When I get home tonight I will give it a shot and let ya know what happens.

Thanks again guys

That's going to be a very fine rig once you get it tuned in.

I'm hoping so. Stock on most things I own is never enough. LOL
Even if I can't get a high clock speed but boost better performance out of BF2 then I'm happy.
