Ok, i have no idea about ram timings (even after reading the sticky's)<br />
Im sorting out my bro's pc for him and the cpu isn't ocable (factory locked)<br />
But on the board i can change a jumper that gives me free rain <br />
on the RAM YEY! <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> this is what i've gotten out of the RAM so far (proberly stupidly wrong)<br />
<br />
FSB (unchangable) <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /><br />

<br />
What i've done so far<br />
<a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img src="http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/829/cpuz2pt2.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /></a><br />
<br />

It looks like you're running just below the rated speed. Do you know which jumper will set it to 266Mhz?<br />
<br />
I've never done it with jumpers....

It's a jumper on the board that lets me access the RAM timings in the bios (strange i know) the timings are done in bios i just dont know what the timings should be <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /> and what timings does anyone recommend for that setup?

So it only changes the timings, not the BUS speed? I was wondering if that was possible with jumpers after reading your post...

I'm not familiar enough with this proccedure to comment...<br />
<br />
But it sounds as though useing the jumper will not boost your performance noticeably, if at all. Rather, it sounds like a safety feature, not an OC feature. That is specular though...<br />
<br />
Hopefully one of the Hardware Guru's will see this and have an answer.

LOL! no no no <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> the jumper allows me to get to a section of the bios that isnt usually there. i just need to know the timings and bus speed to match my FSB then..... i'll be able to sleep easily.

</div>So you can access the BIOS?<br />
<br />
If so then look for an "advanced options" (or similarly named) menu.<br />
<br />
The simple start: Up the BUS speed in 5Mhz increments. After each bump, alllow windows to load and spend some time testing with Prime95 to ensure stability.<br />
<br />
Default the RAM timings for now. If there is an option you could set it to "Auto". Also set your vcore to auto. No need to start pumping volts in to it yet. If your new to OC'ing stop at a 10-15% OC (or whatever you feel comfortable with) and run Prime95 overnight to see if it is stable. If it is push it up again, though I would repeat the testing overnight .<br />
<br />
Once you get an OC stable and start to push on and become unstable post back with your settings...<br />
<br />
I hope that this helps.
