Cpuid shows about 400 for ddr2 800 (pc6400). I wouldn't overclock it. sportsfanboy a b } Memory September 30, 2009 9:57:01 PM Your memory will say dd2 400 or close to it in cpuz, that means 800mhz effective, so that's correct. I recommend setting the timings and voltage to manufacturers specifications as well.

Ask ! Get the answer welshmousepk September 30, 2009 10:56:49 PM DDR2 is double pumped, so for every cycle it gets two calculations. therefore at 400mhz operating speed it has an effective 800mhz. so yup, this is correct. you may be able to OC it to 533 and get 1066 effective if you are lucky jsc a b } Memory October 1, 2009 8:34:53 AM I am not a proponent of overclocking memory. There is no practical benefit to running memory faster the FSB freq:mem clock ratio of 1:1 as reported in CPU-ID. For my Core2 systems (Gigabyte), I change the System Memory Mult. from AUTO to 2.0 (DDR2 memory) and let the memclock rise with the FSB frequency. Leaving the SMM on AUTO can limit your overclock because the memory will reach its limits before the CPU does. umarrehman187 October 1, 2009 10:00:26 AM so because it say 267 in cpu z shall i change it manually to ddr2 800 in bios so it says 401.8 in cpu z ? erdinger October 1, 2009 2:37:30 PM umarrehman187 said:so because it say 267 in cpu z shall i change it manually to ddr2 800 in bios so it says 401.8 in cpu z ?
