    thats the first motherboard i've come across to use that sort of wording for dividers, normally thesedays they just give you options like 400/533/667/800/1000 or 5/4, 3/4 etc.

    They should be working, at your FSB of 325 the 1/1.5 setting should get you to 487.5 MHz and your SPD settings for your memory state it can work at 500 MHz 5-5-5-15. In your sig it says your running 4-4-4-12, perhaps your just pushing the mem too hard? I can only assume that your motherboard fails to post at these settings and resets the divider back to default.

    As a test, have you tried putting your FSB back to 266 and trying the 1/1.5 divider? this would set your memory to 800 MHz which is what you're currently running without problems. Anyhow, try that and report back.

    what im wondering is, is their any way to get the ratios to save as something higher than 5/4?

    anybody?? anybody know of a way i can do this?
    Did you switch auto settings off to manual in your bios?

    @smith, what MOBO were you using?...where did you get those decimal digits?
    If you were talking about the Maximus, it doesn't have those divider as you were talking about.

    PC6400 overclock to 1000mhz , you must have the golden hands. PC6400 usaully can get up around 900ishMhz.

    I believe Smith was refering to a MSI MS7246 But if you look back at his cpuz memory its at 406 which 406x2=812 I dont understand why he needs it to go any faster.
