Thread: ASUS A7V333 Confusion

    This is what the ASUS A7V333 specs are for the fsb and such:

    - Bus Frequency
    100/133MHz Internal
    200/266MHz External
    Alpha EV6 Communication Bus

    - Memory Frequency
    100/133/166MHz DDR
    200/266/333MHz effective

    Bus frequency totally makes sense. I can change my fsb incrementally which is no problem. The multiplier is locked so I'm sort of limited on what I can oc...not much I'm expecting.

    The Memory frequency is totally confusing to me. I have some Corsair PC2700 DDR Ram and I have NO idea how fast it's running. It's rated at 333MHz but I can't find out this information. Do I assume that it is running at 333??

    I've also noticed in the BIOS there is an option to run the CPU/BUS ratio as 1:1 or 4:5. 1:1 I understand but 4:5??? Why would anyone want to do that? I'm assuming it's for overclocking but I can't hazard a guess as to what.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I noticed that as well on mine. I too am also baffeled why you would use that setting.

    I like mine fine without overclocking at all.
    I use Kingmax memmory, I have never liked corsair on asus boards. It seem to be more unstable. The kingmax is the best ive ever used!

    With a XP2100+ my machine goes like greased lightning!
    Current Rig:

    MSI K7N2G-ILSR
    Athlon XP 2100 @ 166 fsb x 13 = 2158 mhz
    Corsair PC3200 256mb Platinum
    Lite-on 52x Burner
    Maxtor 7200 rmp 80 GB HDD
    IGP Graphics

    Go and check your thread about this in the Overclocking forum and I'll close this thread as only one is required. :smokin:
