The MSI G41M-P26 LGA 775 uses a variety of CPU's with different FSB speeds 800/1066/1333, ideally a 1:1 ratio CPU to RAM is ideal. Assuming you meant Intel Pentium E5500 http://ark.intel.com/products/42800/Intel-Pentium-Proce...(2M-Cache-2_80-GHz-800-MHz-FSB) it has a 800MHz FSB. Therefore, it's a lot more complex to OC and the gain is at best 1%. Do you still want to OC? m 0 l stormer95 December 6, 2011 12:51:37 PM yes I do m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Increase FSB/DRAM Ratio BIOS: FSB/DRAM Ratio -> increase ratio so the Adjusted DRAM Frequency (MHz) = 1000MHz or the closest value to DDR3-1066. 2. FSB Math to keep 1:1 Ratio: 333MHz * CPU Ratio = 200MHz * 14 CPU Ratio = 8.5, adjusted up 9 ; 9 * 333MHz = 2997MHz = 3GHz BIOS: Adjust CPU FSB Frequency (MHz) -> 333 MHz Adjust CPU Ratio -> 9 FSB/DRAM Ratio -> (if necessary) -> increase ratio so the Adjusted DRAM Frequency (MHz) = 1000MHz m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
