  1. What frecuency can handle your ram?

    Pull down the CPU:DRAM Ratio to 4:3 then start upping the FSB and stop when you reach your ram frecuency. Go step by step so you don't bust anything.

    I also have cheapazaki RAM that dies if I go further than the manufacturers stated frecuency :cry: . Luckyly not for long for I'm about to receive my end-of-contract check :wink: .

    Good to know i'm not the only one on the poor side :P .

  2. i have ddr2 800(pc 6400) ram so i can use a fsb of 400mhz and use a 1:1 ratio right without killing my ram?
  3. Sounds about right. Depends HOW bad this stuff is. I have my set up at 400 and so is the RAM. I would say 1:1 shouldnt strain it too much?

    So you have ddr2 800, I think you have enough room to use 1:1 ratio and still be on the safe side with your ram. Just keep things cool, don't jump to high frecuencies at once go little by little, also watch for your nb temps.

    Good Luck
