    Default How do i reach 533FSB to utilize 1066 Rams?

    hi im new to intel overclocking and in unfamiliar territory...pls help me ... i abt to buy Crucial Ballistix PC8500= 533bus speed...

    I'm not sure how this works with a 1:1 memory divider how in the world am i going to reach that kind of FSB? 533FSB ? At 533FSB my CPU is gonna be something like 4797mhz...so how do i fully utilize my 533mhz Rams if i'm gonna overclock them? other mem dividers like 2:3 or 4:5 only reduces the speed not increase them...

    Thanks for helping a newbie :rolleyes:

    Fist of all, you won't be able to get 533fsb on HFS or water cooling. You need liquid nitrogen for this.
    Secondly, you need to mod your MOBO and not any board can give you that high of FSB either. So don't even think about it

    DRAM Frequency - for example if you’re running a 333 MHz FSB, set it for 667; if you’re running a 290 MHz FSB, set it to 580, etc. Remember the RAM is DDR2 so divide that 667 by 2 to get 333 or the ratio of the CPU-to-DRAM is 333:333 or 1:1.

    Most good boards will offer 5 modes listed below. Assuming that you’re using a 333 MHz FSB the ratios are:

    FSB : DRAM
    1:1 = 333 MHz : 667 MHz
    4:5 = 333 MHz : 883 MHz
    2:3 = 333 MHz : 1,000 MHz
    3:5 = 333 MHz : 1,111 MHz
    1:2 = 333 MHz : 1,333 MHz

    Running 1:1 is the best setting the other modes only 2% boot.
    If you can max out your ram speed then you can tighten its the timming a little.

    Hi Deton this is so helpful...thanks

    Another question....Any difference if i have 2x1GB of Rams vs 4x1GB of Rams? on a C2D/C2Q motherboard does any of the above mention get affected? Frequency, Timings etc...

    I only have AMD S939 overclocking experience i know that running 4 sticks of DDR Rams on AMD socket 939 systems causes the systems to run on single channel mode for some instances depending on motherboard... will the same occur on a Core 2 system?

    Thanks again

    No
    However, if you're using DDR2 you should get a matching pair don't mix match them.

    Intel chip are much easier to OC because the memory controller don't tied into the CPU as AMD. About 4 sticks and unstability also occurs in Intel sys as well but it also depends on the MOBO. Most highend and reputable boards dont' have much of this issue as the low end one.

    Hi Deton, Thanks again for the inputs thats so helpful ...in that case i should be going for 4x1GB of PC8500 DDR2 Crucial Ballistix Series im happy to stay at its factory 533mhz ... dont think it will be too much of a stress on the mobo that i wanna get... Asus striker 2 Formula

    mostly i will be getting the Asus Maximus Formula... the coming 3870 x2 in crossfire really tempts me so much...thinking of a way to sell of my 8800GT

    Maximus is a heck of MOBO for overclocking. Smith just got one and he's learning about the board at the momemt.

    Smith and I are the only one have the Maximus on this forums if you're going to get one then welcome to the club. Maybe I will form a Maximus club?

    Note: Maximus Formula - DDR2 support only
    Maximus Formula Extreme - DDR3 support only and better NB water block

    Yes, quad crossfire . 3870x2 available by next week and cost around $500. I'm thinking of getting one or two if it's better than my 8800GTS. At the moment the 3870 is on par with the 8800GT.
    Therefore, I'm waiting for the test results before I decide.

    well i will be buying a pair of 3870 x2's for sure. as well as a new psu to power them. o and this board is amazing it can do anything you ask it to short of makeing you dinner.

    I hope it cook you good meals. Since you're twiddling its ivory at every minutes . My doesn't, it just keep sitting there in the corner.

    How did you do it?

    Therefore, I'm waiting for the test results before I decide.

    there are 2 flavours to the Maximus formula right? the Special Edition vs the non Special Edition... other than the Fusion block ... is there any difference? Heard that the Northbridge gets very hot when overclock...if it is so i might as well get the SE version

    Actually 3 versions;
    Maximus Formula - Standard, heatsinks/pipe for NB - DDR2 only
    Maximus Formula SE -special edition with Fuzion water block for NB. - DDR2 only
    Maximus Formula Extreme - upgraded Fuzion block & SB crosslinked pipes. DDR3 only

    SE & Extreme versions is water cooling ready for NB, if you're planning to do water cooling then go with one of these board.
    Standard is for air, at least the NB.

    Yes, NB will getting hotter when you're overclocked. Especially, when you have to increase NB voltages.
