I just got this 3.4 and oc'ed it to 4.11 and when I look at the ram its at 3:2 and I can't seem to change it. Is it possible that the DDR400 is in need of replacing? Or is it just how its going to be. I would like to run a bit closer to a 1:1. The ram Mhz are only at 161 and is 200mhz ram so am I missing something here? I have had the ram oced @226Mhz with the 2.4 oced to 3.2 so if I am missing something please help...thanks

Your board ran a 3:2 fsb/dram divider since acroding to the ram timings it has no chance to run at 242mhz (effective ddr484) so if you want to keep a 1:1 ratio upgrade the ram or lower the fsb speed and/or loosen the ram timings to 3-4-4-8 to get to a stable 1:1 ratio which is recomended for intel rigs.

Is the ram holding me back? if its only at 161mhz it should have more to go before getting to 200mhz right?

Hmm. Mine was 1:1, but now that I changed its speed to 355MhZ it says 5/4. Is this just because I heightened the frequency? I guess im asking if thats alright, just like the original poster.

Changed the ram to run at 400 and set the ram timming to auto and now I am running 1:1 at 240Mhz.

Right now im running it at 355MhZ. Here's a CPU-Z screen of the Memory section. I would like to make the correction that I'm not running 5:4, but 3:4 lol

Then you should lower your RAM frequency in the BIOS. RAM going faster than the CPU isn't recommended.
