533 MHz default but i upped my FSB and got memory to 547 now...

if u want ur ram at 1:1,find out yourt stock fsb, then times that by 2 and that is what you should set your dram frequency too. I could be wrong but im pretty sure im right, bout 80%. Once u have set it to 1:1 start to OC then when it is unstable, up core volts and run a divider.
just by me running a divider(havnt upped vcore, it is actually below stock )i have gotten to 3.72 and i dont think it will be unstable for a while.
so yeah good luck and keep us up to date

okay as of right now, i was just in my bios overclocking my ram. I did not up my ram volts the first time. Set it to 2.5-2-2-10 and it didn't work, so i went 3-3-3-10. still didn't work, so i upped my volts to 2.0. I got it to work with 3-3-3-10 at 2.0 volts. There is only one more setting to up the volts in my motherboard bios. I also tried 2.5-2-2-10 at 2.0 volts but it didn't work. Should i hit the last volt notch and see if it goes 2.5-2-2-10 or even 2.5-2-2-8 or might this burn something up? I have the aluminum heat plate things on the side of my ram, btw, but i bet they only dissipate so much heat....not sure if any fan blows directly on the ram either. Opinions?

Well the tighter your timins the more Unstable it will be at higher clock speeds so if u want a high OC just leave cause u will have to loosen them eventually. Also id just leave the RAM voltage alone and set your pc to stock FSB and then set it 1:1 then OC. After that is unstable Then you use a divider etc.

But if you dont want to OC alot and just want good timings id say to not up the RAM voltage anymore.
So basically you have 2 options:
1)try to OC alot and dont bother with timings until you get your max OC, or
2)Get your timings perfect and see how it OCs, personally id go with 1

ok how do you run a divider? Bios? What do i look for and how do i set it? lol

Okay, i have a new thread opened up just for overclocking my RAM

http://www.overclock.net/intel-memor...dr2-intel.html

So, now this thread is dedicated to helping my CPU OC. I have no idea how to just overclock a CPU, so all help needed, lol. Oh, and i think i will need basic words, LOL

Okay, now. I have opened my BIOS and found these settings:

Chipset Config. Menu:

ISA Enable Bit - Enable/Disable?

PCI Latency Timer - 32, 64.....248

Host Burn in mode - default to +10%

PCI burn in

PCI Ex Burn in

PEG Allow > x1 - Enabled/Disabled?



Now, I used a program to tell me exactally what my specs were, so here they are:

Intel P4 540
FSB - 200 MHz
Bus Speed - 800 MHz
RAM - 266.7 MHz
Multiplier - x16

Now, I need some help understanding all of this and how this is used to overclock a system in the BIOS. This is an INTEL motherboard, so not sure if it will OC. I can't find any settings to up the vCore to the CPU anywhere, so i dunno. I can however up the RAM voltage (1.80-2.08)

I got confromation that my board bios won't up the cpu volts, so this board sucks, lol. Can't overclock on it, so i guess thats the end of this discussion. Thanks for the help anyway

Wait just cause you cant up the voltage doesnt mean you cant OC. As long as you can up the FSB you will be fine.
Now cause you said you dont uderstand OCing here is a quick overview
To OC you put up your FSB by about 5MHz at a time and reboot. When it is started run a program like OCCT to find if it is stable then if it is reboot and repeat. Now the way that it gets OCed is when you up your FSB it gets times by your multi to give you your CPU speed. So the first time you set it up 5MHz,to 205, your CPU speed will increase to 3.28GHz
I hope you understand

BTW i know i am really late with this reply so sorry about that, if someone else has helped you already just say so.

It's cool I read alot more and overclocked till i could no more (10%) I think i'm at 3.65 GHz.
