FSB and RAM Overclocking ratio to 5:6? Is it Ok?


My PC Config:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @3.00GHz
Transcend 2GB RAM @ 667MHz
Gigabyte GA-G33M-S2L
Palit GeForce 450 GTS 1GB DDR3
Antec VP450P PSU

I am trying to OC my FSB and RAM by using the new EasyTuner 6 , an OC utility for Gigabyte mobos.

Below are the images of how I OC'd the FSB and RAM.

I Checked with CPU-Z and the FSB:RAM ratio is 5:6. Somewhere I read the ratio should be 1:1.

I have not faced yet a BSOD (as said on many forums) after OC'ng with these values.

Need suggestions on improving the OC values.

  1. to make the ratio to be 1:1 ur cpu should run at 1600FSB 4x400Hz and a ram at 800Mhz ddr 2x400Hz try to keep the ram at default speed and increase the cpu speed
  2. Whenever i Oc on Easy Tune 6 & set,it gets reset to default value in 2-3 secs..
