    flippy kid, maybe you shouldn't post if you have nothing to say?

    as for the issue.. maybe 800 is only available when overclocking? cause bios sets the speed according to SPD and if it was 800, it should be set to 800 automatically. also the high voltage is a hint to overclocking..

    ok well i got an e6600 with the fsb clocked to 311mhz and i think the auto ratio is 1.25 or 1.2 x the fsb but even with the fsb overclocked to 311 from 266 the bios still shows it as being 667 and what i meen when i say i overclock it and it doesnt stay is that i get fsb ratios and the highest i can go is 2:1 but i cant seem to change the ratio when i save the ratio higher and go back into the bios it doesnt save im confused

    i want to overclock it but the damn bios wont save the changes on the ram speeds

    bios shows what you have set the speed to. to check the real speed of ram use cpu-z

    hmm, if you've chosen 311, or more specifically CPU-z is showing the FSB as 311 and you've chosen 667 in the bios, your memory should be running at 388 MHz, is this right? and just for the record, that would be 776ish MHz.

    anyhow, probably best to upload your CPU-z shots (CPU and mem) using something like image shack so we can see whats going on.

    no probs matey, your bios is working fine, the memory speed setting is just a reference, as soon as you overclock you need to realize that it's going to change.

    For example, the memory settings are actually a divider, which in turn is a division of the FSB speed. So when your at defaults you FSB would be 266, and then lets say you choose the 667 setting, you would actually be choosing a divisor, which in this case is 4/5. Bear with me!

    266/4*5=332.5, then double this for you ram speed (665)

    so when you change your FSB to 320MHz and choose the 667 setting it does not change, its still 5/4 so

    320/4*5=400 (800MHz), make sense?

    btw, the divider for the 800 setting is 2/3 -- 266 / 2 * 3 = 399 (pretty much 800)

    hope that helps explain how it all works.

    i don't mind a few irrelevent posts around and a bit of banter/joking etc in threads, but lets not get too crazy, and i'm not saying any one has, its just a general reminder

    i doubt many can really help you as your hardware is quite old and no one will remember the options in the bios, you will need to have a look in your bios and see if you have some overclocking options first, and if you do we can probably help yee.

    ok well thats good to know but in the bios how do i get the 5/4 ratio to go up for example to 1.66/1 from 5/4 (1.2/1) becuase in the bios i get a list of ratios i can clock with, but when i selct them they wont save... i will select it and save and exit the bios, ill go back in and the ratio will go back to auto (1.2/1). is there any way to make things happy so that i can have them actualy oc?

    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?

    ok i got ratios in my bios for fsb to mem frq. i have auto 1/1.25(same as auto) 1/1 1/1.33 1/1.5 1/1.66 1/2 now i can change these then save and exit, but when i go back in the raito is always set back to auto unless i have 1/1.25 set how can i get it so that in the bios i can have it actualy save as a higher ratio? i think that should be a bit more clear:$
