Okay, I've got a Abit ST6-Raid with a P3-S 1.4, 133 mhz bus, so my divider choices are 4-3-1 and 4-4-1. When I let the bios automatically configure everything. It chooses a 4-3-1 divider. When I do the math, that sounds wrong.
If your familiar with this then you'll see that the second number in the divider is used to set my ram speed. If I take 133*3/4 I get a speed of 100 which is wrong because the speed of my ram is also 133. I can tell it's wrong because when I run the Sandra memory test at this divider it definitely shows with a score in the 700's. When I benched with my old Aopen board, I got a score around 1000.
I guess I'm just confused because a divider of 4-4-1 sounds like the correct divider that would give me a sdram speed of 133, so who's right? Am I right or is the Abit board right; should the divider be 4-4-1 or 4-3-1?
Another question, when I overclock to a fsb of 150, what should my divider be? What's the point of the divider because it's not helping at all? It's more confusing than anything. My Aopen board didn't have a divider and it detected everything properly.
One more question, for my sdram timer settings, I know whether or not to set it to 3-3-3 or 2-2-2, but what's the 7/9 & 5/7 thing for? When I overclock to 150+, I usually switch my settings to 3-3-3, but should the other setting be at 7/9 or 5/7?
