I don't fully understand how this works. I've read a lot of guides on this but none of them tell you whether or not increasing the CPU FPS increases the RAM's as well. I've read some that make it sound like they're two seperate overclocks and some giving me the impression that they're hand-in-hand.<br />
My BIOS only has the four speed options and using +/- merely switches between them. <br />
<br />
So what's the story?<br />
<br />
Thanks.

Ok, your ram runs 2 times your FSB unless you put a divider on your ram. So if your FSB would be 220, your ram would run at 440 DDR without a divider. If that would be with a 166mhz divider it would run at 372 DDR.

First fill out your specs. Then maybe we can make some suggestions?

Yes I was assuming you use DDR and not DDR2, fill in your system specs for more help (top left).

Good god; if that's the case I don't even know how I've overclocked my RAM this much. Manufacturer suggests timings @ 2-3-3-6 and I've got them at 2-2-2-5 running a 217FBS completely stable. Seems like my BIOS would have to not be applying the settings :O. I was almost sure you'd have to overclock them seperately given how tight I got my timings.<br />

Hey mate, go to User CP, then Edit System Specs. The you go fill in the spaces in detail, and get your PC secs in the bottom of your posts like us <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
If you tell these guys the make, model etc of your memory, they can give ya better advice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
