Thread: Sily Question

    Hi. This is a really silly question yet I still haven't found a conclusive answer.


    If I set the FSB of the CPU to run 1:1 with memory does this mean that the memory will run at the same speed as the FSB? I.e if I set it the FSB to 144 then the memory will also run at the same speed?

    I know this is a really easy question and the answer is blantly in the question but I want a definitive yes from someone.

    Yes 1:1 means that the memory is set at the same speed as the FSB and will move at the same speed that ya set the FSB to.

    I only trying this on my AMD pc but the FSB is at 148 totally stable but at 150 it fails to boot into windows. I think it might the memory. Post screen says its running at 298 or something. I don'y have the money at the moment to get two sticks of quality memory. I think this is what is holding back my overclock at the mo

    PC2700 is good for 166MHz (DDR333) so its more than likely the CPU that can't take it or another factor is stoppin' it (like heat, case airflow to be more pacific, or ya need to raise ya core and memory voltages).

    Do ya have ya AGP bus locked at 66MHz or on Auto? :?:

    I'm not sure about the AGP voltages. I'll check that tonight. Case and CPU temps are fine. Former running at 32-34 and the latter at 28-32.

    i might try knocking down the multi but I have a MSI board that has that wierd bug where if you adjust the multi it knocks the whole thing outta whack. E.g set the multi to 13 have the fsb @ 133 and it displays it at 800mhz cpu.
