hey got a quick question..i just got the 3000+ venice (skt 754) so far im stuck at 2.28mhz and know this thing can go much higher..but i cant go any higher than 2.28mhz with the ram at a ratio of 1:1 if i start putting it on a divider to get a higher FSB am i simply just loosing speed b/c of the slower ram?<br />
<br />
<br />
thx

well on my operton i'm running 133fsb on my [email protected] 2.9 v but my fsb is 311 so in effect my ram is running 413.63 so the higher fsb on the cpu outwieghs any small loss on the ram divider..if I understand the whole divider thing correctly..if not I will be corrected shortly...<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Have you tried uping the voltage of the ram or loosening the timings? Have you found the max OC for just you CPU and just your RAM? Dividers are ok to run because performance is most affected by CPU speed. Try to run each component at their max; If your ram simlpy cant go as high as your cpu, run a divider on it. You arn't loosing any performance. You just are not gaining the performance of higher performing memory.

I have that cpu and its the same pin 754. Take a look at my cpu-z thing .. it will show you what settings i have = <a href="http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=111545" target="_blank">http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=111545</a><br />

Oh and i had to put the cpu volt up to 1.6 to make it stable.

</div>Nope, not at all. Feel free to use a divider, it won't hurt your performance much at all, and certainly not enough to offset the gains you'll get by running the CPU faster.
