Hey Guys I'm not going to lie here I don't know too much about PC's as of yet.
I just need to know if I turn up the cpu from 333mhz with 7x to 380-400 is it possible.
I only ask bec I see the ram goes to 900mhz+ when it is around those numbers. The ram timings
are 5-5-5-18 stock. Cpu V Core is 1.2075v Ram is 1.8V
More about :overclock gigabyte g41m es2h q8200 ram 800mhz
THat's because you are overclocking the RAM, and that is probably limiting your overclock.
First comment: the Q8200 family is known to be not particularly good overclockesrs.
Second: Go into the BIOS and change the Memory Clock Multiplier from AUTO to 2.00. That will run your memory clock at twice the FSB frequency. The G41m being an economy board, I doubt if you are going to be able to get the FSB up to much more than 400 MHz.
it will not go more than 400, as i yesterday had the same problem, and reverted xms2 800 to ddr2-533mhz....sadly.....you will need to change your motherboard to something that supports that fsb, asus has cheap ones that go to 1600 via overclocking, thats factory overclock ability, so should be easy to take it to 1600 fsb modes....
