Hello

I'm having trouble completely understanding the overclocking guide as it is all very new to me. My computers CPU is a 2.8 with a 800mhz FSB and my memory is DDR2 667. What FSB:memory divider does that equate to at stock speed. Is it (800/4) : (667/2) = 200 : 333?
My motherboard is a P5wd2 Premium which gives me memory options of ddr2 400, 533, 600, 667, 800 at CPU Freq 200. As I increase my CPU Freq all of these increase as well such as ddr2 410, 547, 615, 683, 820 at CPU Freq 205. How does the FSB:memory divider apply to these? How do you get 1:1 let alone 5:4 as mentioned in the guide?

Thanks

The memory tab of CPU-Z should tell you what your FSB
RAM is..if you dont have cpu-z then you should really get it


To modify your timings, in your bios there should be an option to change ram speed.

What you should maybe aim to do, is get the highest clock speed possible at your stock ram speed (which you will need to lower as you clock your cpu higher)

then up the ram speed until it crashes to find what it can handle,

other members here might be able to help you out more but that might get you started,
