Memory speed ratio is 2 digits. it'll be like 1:1, 3:2, 5:4, etc.

At a ratio of 5:4, you divide your fsb by 5, then multiply it by 4 and you'll have the speed of the ram. A 250mhz fsb divided by 5 is 50, multiply that by 4, and your ram is running at 200mhz.

With that particular Asus mobo though the cpu:mem ratio is not shown. It actually lets you pick from 4 memory speeds. So no need to worry about the ratio
