View Full Version : Memory Help
What does it look like in the bios when you set mem ratios? is it like a box that comes up and has choices of 1.33 1.6 and 2.0?
It depends on what chipset and BIOS you're running.
Via chipsets and BIOS display ratios.
Nforce chipsets and BIOS use a percentage of FSB and display resultant memory frequency.
The difference is semantic - the result pretty much the same.
Hope this helps!
F6 bios.... im not sure what you mean... bumb

So you've got a GigaByte board right?
Yes, it should be something like 1, 1.33 and 1.66. At 200MHz FSB, that means 200/1, 200/1.33 and 200/1.66 to get your memory speed.
If you've overclocking, then it would be FSB/number.
yes i got a gigabyte:D so thanks, and choose a number that is stable?

Well what are your system specs? Like RAM, exact mobo, CPU and all?
Corsair 3200LLXMS 2.8C GA-8KNXP mobo... anything else?

Ok, so you should be able to use the 1.33 divider. I can't see a 2.8C doing too much more than 250MHz FSB with aircooling and 1.6V. (the vcore limit for that board)
So set the ratio to 1.33 and up the FSB. :)
ok, and ummm what would the signs of the slower memory speeds be? would i really notice the computer slow down?

No because you'll be running a higher FSB and higher CPU speeds which will more than offset the RAM speed decrease.
