I would like to OC my old PC with the following hardware:
Asus A8N-VM CSM
4x 512MB RAM PC3200
2x Infineon 3-3-3-8
2x Apacer 2.5-4-4-8
newest BIOS v1007
Here is what I've done so far:
Increased the GPU clock with ASUS GPU tweak from 450MHz to 610MHz (can I get any higher?)
Max'ed the FSB to 240MHz (was 200MHz before)
Slightly lowered the RAM timings to 2.5-3-3-6 2T (is it safe to go lower with CAS or something else?) was inspired by http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/194643-30-drops-speed
He said, that changing to these values made his RAM clock go back from 333MHz to 400MHz
and I read many articles about my motherboard, so I know it is a bad OC board.
I know it is possible to tweak the NB and HT link but I'm not sure how to do it properly.
bootup screen shows that DRAM clocking is 333MHz, but once booted CPU-Z says my RAM is running on 400MHz (DRAM Frequency 200MHz) so who is lying?
This thread was also informative http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=46100
the author said, that he actually lowered the RAM clock to get back to 400MHz (is it for the sake of syncing the clock speed??) but I don't know where to set this option.
