G.Skill Venice 3000 overclock is this the right RAM settings?

    Hi There, I recently got some G.Skill 2GB PC3200 ZX
    now I can clock my Venice 3000 CPU as 2.7GHz

    my settings are: (from memory as I'm at work so some terms i.e FSB etc)
    HT x3
    Muliplier (as standard) X9
    FSB ( or what ever its called now!) 300
    RAM divider 133
    Artic Freezer temps are 32C Idle 42C Load or there abouts
    WINFAST NF4 mobo (cheapo) motherboard.
    The system is Prime 95 stable for 12 Hrs+

    My Question is this: I thought the G.Skill RAM would have worked at a 166 divider but it won't POST at these speeds hence the RAM underclock. I have upped the RAM voltage a little but my mobo hasn't got my lattitude for RAM volts. Should I leave well alone or be trying something else?

    As it stands I am very happy with the overclock and temps etc. Any thoughts? :)

    You could try give the RAM some more volts.

    Please ignore this, or flame me for jumping in with an answer without reading the question properly first

    I doubt more volts would help - u might be able to get it to work with MUCH slacker timings.

    best thing to do is leave it - you have the right divider.

    Running 300HTT and 133 divider means ram is running 200fsb (where it should be)

    300 HTT and 166 divider (300/200 x 166) would require RAM capable of 250fsb. Yours isn't!

    Cheers for the advice I get your point. I will leave it as is.

    PS. I have deleted the other thread, as per you request.
