Because of the end of support for XP I recently decided to re-enter the modern world and purchased a combo kit for a decent entry level machine. The lowdown on the parts is AMD A10-6500K processor, ASUS 88X-Pro motherboard, Patriot Viper Extreme 4GB PC3-12800 1600MHZ memory. Being new to the world of overclocking I was amazed that the system came set up to do it's best to automatically overclock with a few simple clicks. Then being my curious self I decided to find out how good of a job it had done. After doing some research I'm pretty sure it screwed things up pretty bad even though I haven't noticed a significant degradation in performance. Right now the CPU is running at a frequency of 116 and a multiplier of 38. My DRAM:FSB ratio is 28:3, with a real clock speed of 1081 mhz and my bandwidth is 17291 mb/s. Anyone out there to verify that these are ok? The DRAM:FSB ratio is what has me wondering.

looks fine to me, but where did you overclock?

I allowed the AISuite III to overclock in windows 8.1.

My memory's bandwidth is also a point of concern. If I go into AIsuite and change the frequency down just 2 to 114, and don't touch the multiplier, my memory bandwidth suddenly doubles in AIDA64 Extreme. Jumped from 17000 to over 34000. What is the reason for that?

could be many reasons, but I would stay away from where you are trying to overclock, it only appears to be causing issues. Why not overclock through BIOS? That is the best and most common way to overclock.

Mainly because I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing... Guess I need to find someone local to help out in person with this. Thanks though for your help.
