Sorry for my stupidity.... I can`t get into the memory thing...
I started the overclock with this:
1333 mobo FSB.
standard 266 CPU FSB / Standard Voltage / Standard Multiplier (9.5)
4GB DDr2 @ 18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124 @ 2V
nothing more or less / saved these settings and restarted. (the restart was to prepare in major oc settings)
The surprise? I didn't start the OC... Ram Memory again... I couldn't change it's frequency... So strange, never happened when I was OC on AMD...
Is there anything I did wrong? So embarrassing... I know...:help:
Your memory is now set on a 1:1 ratio with the FSB (cpu frequency on your bios), thus the 266Mhz or DDR2-533. As you increase your FSB, your memory will increase at the same rate.
This is what I meant by the jumpers being the memory divider ratio. I predict that chip will max out somewhere around 350 mhz - 9x350= 3.15 Ghz. At which time your memory will be running at DDR2-700. If you want to change the ratio to try to run your memory faster, try setting the jumpers to the next lower CPU FSB setting.
What you were experiencing at first was that your memory was trying to run at way too fast speeds. Changing the jumpers allows you to increase your FSB without overpowering your memory.
Does it make any sense if I tell you ... no matter how high I increase the fsb (now is 350 with 9 multi / 3.16Ghz) the ram freq stays the same: 533/266mhz
(in contrast cpu-z now: dram freq = 350 / fsb:dram ratio 1:1) I'm so gone right now... If I move the jumper to 1600fsb (on the mobo) any changes are to appear?
