    No. On asus boards the DRAM frequency is a little funny. 266/333/400 are actually dividers, not static speeds. 266 is 3:2, 333 is 5:4, and 400 is 1:1. You want to keep it at 1:1, or 400. Then raise your FSB as high as it can go.

    Its actually listed as 320, but you get the idea.

    Its just a ratio, or a % of the system clock ("FSB").

    Keep yours in 1:1 mode (400) and try 266fsb. If it can't do it up the vdimm and see if that helps.

    If it doesn't, up the vcore a notch or two and see if it helps. One of them should.

    When you reach 266 run Prime95 on it and get it stable.

    My vcore is on 1.65 what should be the maximum i can have it at because previously i couldnt get the mem past 245 but i raised the vcore to 1.65 from 1.6 and it did the the trick.

    Also would i get faster speed from using 5:4 ratio or one to one

    Thanks

    Don't exceed 1.75v and keep a close eye on ya temps but as I said b4 ya memory shouldn't need to have its settings change untill ya hit 266MHz FSB which is what its rated for. Once ya go past 266MHz FSB then ya'll need to set its operation back to 320 (5:4).
