    Hi, I know this is a stupid question but can anyone quickly point me to the fsb/dram setting in the BIOS, couldnt find it when I looked earlier! :confused:

    I looked in the power bios but there was only stuff like CPU frequency PCI E frequency and voltages, no option to change the FSB/DRAM ratio? Can you do it from inside windows with another programme?

    Power Bios

    CPU Frequency(speed of cpu)

    Then select mem freq( ddr 200 is 1:1 if you require divider then 166/133 etc)


    for ram timings


    advcanced chipset features

    dram config

    ok thanks a lot Bookime Wood, just tried it and 166 changes the mem freq from CPU/9 to CPU/11. Btw what memory do you have and what timings are you running at?

    It depends what you want to run. Have you used a64 before, they work differently from barton cpus. What ram, and what cpu do you have, are you looking to overclock or run stock?

    I have an opteron 144 currently running at 2.3gig (I only got it yesterday and am still testing) with 2x512mb of OCuk Value RAM which I have always used a divider with to get it at 200mhz which it runs stable at 2.5-3-3-7 (1T), It also runs stable at 220mhz at 3-3-3-8 (1T), which would be better to run? I had a 2.66gig celeron which I used to run at 3.3gig to get the memory at full speed as the stock Fsb was only 133mhz! I also have a a64 3500 at stock (on family pc) but otherwise I havent had much experience with a64s or opterons. Is faster mem frequency better or lower freq. and tighter timings?

    They reckon cpu speed over everything else, then tight timings, so keep it at 1t use the divider and keep the timings as tight as possible
