I just got my 1800+ back from AMD's RMA dep., and was looking to overclock her via fsb.

In the Frequency/voltage control section of the bios, there's a CPU FSB setting which I can increase(running @144 now), but the memory posts at 266 MHz! I've tried changing a few settings between the memory section and the frequency/etc, but no luck.

Anyone know what setting I'm overlooking??? :beer:

I'd like to know too, my memory will constantly post at 266. Might just be a display problem with the bios readout.

I asked the same question here several months ago. I was told that your memory is running at the same speed as your fsb, but the board doesn't show it seperately. It makes sense, though, cuz when I upped the voltage on my memory, I was able to increase my fsb a lot.

I also think it is just a display. I ran sisoft sandra and it warned me that the ram was overclocked at the same fsb as my processor.
