    Default What does the letter next to the memory multiplier mean?

    Here's the pertinent specs:

    EP43-DS3L
    e7200 @ 1066 mhz
    2x2 gb @ 333 mhz
    FSB aka MCH @ 266 mhz

    System Memory Multiplier: 2.5A

    so right now the fsb:dram ratio is 4:5, which is fine for me, but I'm curious if this is the optimal setting. I saw a bunch of various multipliers followed by different letters and I wasn't sure which one to pick - just not one too high since I'm not concerned about OC'ing.

    So basically I'm asking for a multiplier setting that's stable but still gets the most of my stock speeds, and the meaning behind the letters. Thanks for any help.

    it represents the MCH strap, which affects the overall stability of your RAM at different FSB speeds... if you simply set the strap using the "MCH Frequency Latch" setting... if you just use the strap that is equal to your stock FSB (or Auto) you should be fine

    Ya, you want to use a strap letter closest to your FSB or MCH Latch setting. Of course this also would depend on other things and your overclock as well.

    Do you want some in depth strap reading? (Post #7) >>>
