Question Help with Biostar TP43D2-A7 Overcock

I'm helping a friend overclock his E2180 on a Biostar TP43D2-A7 with G.SKILL F2 PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-12

I'm use to Gigabyte BIOS so this BIOS is a little confusing for me. If anyone has any experience with these Biostar boards I could use your help.

Here is the settings.

Ratio CMOS Settings
This item allows you to set the CPU ratio frequency
Options: x6.0/x7.0/x7.5/x8.0/x8.5/x9.0/x9.5/x10.0

Right now we have at the stock x10 and will leave it at x10 if running FSB of 333 or 360 and will drop it down to x9 if running a FSB of 400


CPU Frequency Setting

This item allows you to select the CPU Frequency
Options Min=100MHz - Max=800MHz

Right now it's at stock 200MHz. Goal is to do 333 or 360MHz or 400MHz


Overclock Retry Count

This item allows you to set the overclock fail retry times.
Options: 3(Default /Min=1 - Max=8

Right now it's on default of 3.


FSB to NorthBridge Latch

This item allows you to select FSB Frequency
Options: Auto (Default) /FSB 800 /FSB1066 /FSB 1333

Right now it's on Auto. I would imagine I need to set to ti FSB 800 or would I need to set it to 1333 if I plan on running at a FSB of 333 or higher?


DRAM Frequency

This item allows you to control the Memory Clock
Options: Auto (Default) /DDR2 533MHz /DDR2 638MHz / DDR2 667MHz / DDR2 800MHz / DDR2 851MHz / DDR2 886MHz / DDR2 1066MHz

Right now it's on Auto. I'm thinking if we want to run at a FSB of 333 would have to set it to DDR2 667 or if running a FSB of 360 or even 400 we need to set this to DDR 800MHz. Now for running at a FSB of 400 this would have a 1:1 ratio however if we run at 360 and leave it at DDR2 800 what would the ratio be?

The rest is pretty straight forward except the following:


PCIE Clock By

This item allows you to select the PCIE clock control
Options: Auto (Default) / Fixed 100 / Manual

I'm guessing put it to Manual as it controls the next setting.


PCIE Frequency Setting

This item allows you to select the PCIE clock control
Options are 100 (Default) / Min=100 - Max=150

I would leave this at the Default of 100

Concerning the voltage the only two I'm not sure of are the following:


VTT Overvoltage

This item allows you to select the FSB Voltage Control
Options: Auto (Default) / +0.025v - +0.700v

No idea what to set this at


CPU GTL Ref Voltage

Options: 0.63*VTT (Default) / 0.67*VTT / 0.58*VTT

No clue on this one either.


I think I have the basic idea of it but would like some reassurance. Thanks guys.
