Ok I was wondering how Memory ratios work ?

I reecently overclocked a PC for a friend without knowning what the mem ratio's did... so I just ignored it

Its running PC800 RDRAM at 115FSB

But what does this mean the memory is running at and how do you work it out ?

Right. Can't remember all the lingo, but it's kinda like this...

FSB = 100.
P4 = quad bandwidth = 400
Dual channel = 800
Least I think so.


133FSB = 533FSB = 1066 memory.

On DDR systems:

100FSB = 200MHz DDR = PC1600
133 = 266 = PC2100
150 = 300 = PC2400
166 = 333 = PC2700

The PC number equals MB/s tranfer rate.

I just know I'm going to get flak for not explaining it correctly, but hopefully you'll get the jist.
