Hey,

Well I've been oc'ing my processor over the past few days and have it running 230*11 right now so its at 2530mhz. I don't have many options for ram dividers on this mobo so I was just wondering which setting would be best. I can set the memory to 133, 166, or 200. It default setting is 166 since its pc2700 but then when I overclock my processor with it on 166 it has to run at 180. I would love it if that actually worked but booting up it will just randomly reboot some times, and not other times. By underclocking the ram (putting it at 133) it runs at 148 with the cpu oc'ed to 2530 and it boots fine all the time but benchmark scores a lower. Then theres the option of just running cpu at stock and ram at stock which I would prefer to not have to use. My question is, can anyone help me with some settings so that it will run at 180, or it would be better to keep my cpu overclocked and run the ram at 148? Its really cheap ram, some no name stuff from staples I think, which is why I wanna replace it soon.

Thanks all, sorry for the long post...'preciate your help

EDIT: attached screenshot of CPUZ memory timings

HTT 250
HT 4x
V core 1.6
Divider 2 - 1.33 (133)
Multi 11x

That will give you 2.75ghz with RAM running at 167!! Trust me, if it's a sandy this is perfect for your specs.

If thats stable, wich it will be...up the fsb even more 5mhz at a time until it becomes unstable.

I would do this except I haven't done the volt mod on this board so I can't set vcore above 1.45v..guess it wouldn't run that high at stock volts eh?

simply drop your multi to 10, giving you 2.5 with 166 ram, this is the most stable and highest oc you can expext with a low v core.

You might be able to hit 2.6 with the following settings

Multi 10x
Ht 4x
FSB 260
Ram divider 2-1.33 (133)
That will make your RAM run at 173
