    Default Good and Reliable OC needed !!!

    Hi, this is my first post around here, so thank you all for sharing experience in the forums!!

    Enough of small talk...

    This is a print screen of my cpu-z info.

    I've set on the the bios, ddr2@800mhz 2.0v, and altered the values to 4-4-4-12-4-42-3-11-7-13.

    1-What i want to know is the meaning of the 2:3 value on the cpu-z's FSBRAM field. Is a ratio ...?!... can anybody explain this like i was a 5 year old ?
    2-If i boost the FSB what will happen to the ram values, they no longer stay at 800Mhz ?! Can they operate like 900 Mhz?!
    3-Looking at the print screen would you recommend something ? I'm not looking for a super computer, but i like to run fast, on work, rendering, gaming, etc...

    Also CoreTemp gives me 41º idle if installing apps, rendering, it goes to 47~51, in orthos it goes wild like 56~61, should i worry ? I'm thinking in getting Zalmman's CNPS9700 NT, it will reduce this temps a bit !?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tiago Vasconcelos

    for every 2 mhz of fsb you get 3 of ram mhz so for example if your running 300 mhz fsb your running 450 mhz ram x2 so 900mhz you will probly need to bump up your vram to handle those speeds with those timeings ive got myn set to 930mhz ish and 2.2v with the same timeings just fiddle a bit but watch your temps dont want to burn your ram up

    Yes, i wouldn't like to go much further on the vram, i'm still on fabricator spec. They warm up a bit, not much but they do, when orthos is runing, especially the one that don´t get ventilation from the cpu fan, the other one barelly even notice warm.

    I've been looking for a cool way to cooled them down, seen the ocz mount thingy to put on top of ddr's with 2 fans, but i've seen here on the site a very simple one with 3 small fans that fit also on top of the ddr, can't find it on the forum nor on sale in Portugal.

    i pretty sure your good up to 2.2v, my ram is rated for 2.2 but if you want to get the cpu faster without getting the ram faster needing more volts lower the ratio say to 4:5 or something like that

    check the mobo's manual, my asus likes to cut down the 800MHz rams to 667 if used with cas 4, tho i dont know if the Plus has this "feature" too

    Default

    the ratio is set depending on what memory speed to choose in the BIOS (533, 667, 800, 1066)

    the ratio is different for each setting you choose,

    533 = 1/1
    667 = 4/5
    800 = 2/3
    1066 = 1/2

    so whatever the FSB and memory speeds you select in the bios are, you use the ratio to determine the final memory speed. an example:

    266 FSB with DDR800 set in bios = 266 / 2 * 3 = 400 (800 mhz DDR)
    320 FSB with DDR800 set in bios = 320 / 2 * 3 = 480 (960 mhz DDR)

    that should explain it

    Thanks for the replies. These are my specs now, and i'm having errors on othos after 1 minute running. Can i switch back to 5-5-5-15 and run the ram at 450mhz instead ? Do have much too loose in the performance ?
    i have the vram at 2.0v, maybe i need to increase that in order not to get errors on orthos and get a stable machine with 4-4-4-12 ?!

    I'll be wayting for some replies on this before i change anything...

    i would check with the ram to see what its rated to myn is ment to be run at 2.2v if you run it with the 5-5-5-15 timeings it will be good to run at 450

    Ok, i've been messing arround with the bios and ended up like this. These are my latest specs, the vram is on 2.15v, i'll try take 0.05v off just to see if i can lower the damn thing...i've added a fan over the ram...just in case.The max voltage for them is 2.0v, i don't want to screw them.Now the machine is stable and until i get a better cooler i want raise the FSB (i hope...).I'm getting 40º idle and 58º~60º on full load on orthos, on superPi it stays 55º~58º.
    Can i get some feedback from you guys ? Anything you would change?

    Jameson, so if i want my FSB=366 but want to keep my ram at 450MHz i have to downgrade it to DDR2@667MHz ?

    Thanks

    cpu temp is recomended only to go up to 50 C whereas the cores can get up to 65 C make sure you dont get too hot. other than that it all looks good. On my E6600 i only got to 2.93 befor i got a new cooler and it was unstable and too hot. With a new cooler i got it running 44C cpu and 62-3 C cores. Buy a zalaman 50$ gets you a good one they are great

    yeah that 667 setting with fsb at 366 will give you 457 on the memory

    well no its actualy faster than the 450 the ratio makes no differance as long as the nubmers in cpuz show that you are running 450 or whatever you want

    as smith said, the memory ratio is just the means to an end, and the memory speed is actually higher than the 450 you wanted by a few mhz.

    Long gone are the days where dividers cause performance issues.
