  1. Have you read the overclocking stickies so you know what and why you are changing numbers? I doubt it's the RAM, I'm guessing 400 FSB is too much for the CPU to handle without changing voltages and all the other intricacies to overclocking...
  2. yes i read the overclocking stickies and i followed the steps, after i set the 1600fsb jumper to my mobo, i need to set 400 fsb to see the 1333 (667) ddr3 frecuency, but if i put this the computer dont start, i did set the timmings (7-7-21-7) and the rest on auto, and too fail..
  3. bump! no one can help me? i want to set my rams to default timmins and frec (7-7-7-21 1333mhz) and after it do OC to my cpu, but i cant set the 1333mhz, the computer dont start.. too i saw when i up the fsb, too memory ram frecuency goes up so i dont know how i need to do.
    Other things are, if i set fsb 1600 on mobo, the ram is sync 1:1, but if i set 1333 on mobo, ram goes to 5:6 :/
