Ratios and timings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
this is what it says on my cpuz validation site

RAM Ratio : 3:2
RAM Timings : 2.5-4-4-8

in my bios i can not find a way to manueally change the devider so i was wondering does the devider chantge with the timings.. can i adjust that 2.5.x.x.x and have it become a 1:1 ration.. or does anyone using a p4p800edlx know how to set the deviders

Not stumped, I have seen this question answered around here very often.......maybe everyone thinks it's my turn



the ratio is ajusted simply by you going into your BIOS and manually changing your RAM freq to match your FSB.

So if you are running a 230 FSB on your processor, set your RAM to run at 460Mhz. That's a 1:1 ratio.

Same way, if you want a divider, set your RAM to a faster or slower speed than your FSB. generally it is stated that 1:1 provides best performance, however, sometimes to get a higher clock speed you need to run your RAM a little slower for stabilbility, but will still get a performance boost.

okay ill look for that.. with the abit i had it was a little easier just pick the devider i want.. this board doesnt seem to have that option.. what i have noticed also is that it only gives me like 266 400 and 533 and auto.. does this mean im pretty much SOL with getting a 1:1 ratio

Not nessacarily. On my board, it is the same way, I can't manually type in my RAM Mhz like I do the FSB, it gives me a list of frequencies. What these are though is like setting a divider, but you have to do the math LOL

One of them should match a 1:1 exactly, just choose that one.

So, if you change your settings to manual, set your FSB to what you want (let's say 230) and then go to the RAM. It should open a window, or menu with 4 or 5 settings, one of them should be 460Mhz, which is 1:1. And then it will have like 410Mhz, and 390Mhz above that, and 490Mhz, and 533Mhz below that, or something similar.

Does that make sense?

I believe you do not have the same mobos. He has a p4p800 which the only selections are 266,320,400,466, and 530 i believe. I havent checked mine in a while. Going with your overclock speed, unless you have ram that is 533 mhz you might not be able to get it 1:1. I would suggest going to 320 from 266 and see if its boots and test it. Then go to the next one and so on until you hit a wall. If you can get 1:1 its great but 5:4 is almost as good and what i have. You defenitly notice the difference.
