View Full Version : Serious Memory Issue!

Hi, first of all, thanks for reading this and replying.

PC Specs:
AMD Athlon 2400+
160gig ATA133
Nforce2 Mobo

GEIL PC3200 512mb 6-3-3-2

OK my problem is this. I can only get my memory freq. to run at 133mhz. Am I wrong in thinking this should be able to run at 333mhz(166)? If I clear the cmos it defaults to a 1800+ and 200mhz memory freq. If I change the memory for FSB from 100mhz to 133mhz, and set speed from "SPD" to Auto. It will work fine. This will take my memory freq. down from 200mhz to 133mhz, but make my processor read as a 2400+.

Now shouldnt I be able to make this have a 166mhz FSB but have a 333mhz memory freq?

I've tried every Cas timeing known to man.

When I make it this:

FSB: 166mhz
Memory Speed: 200% (333mhz)

I get a memory error, about 15 different ones now.

I'm helpless, any responses even to call me retarded are appreciated!

That 133 you are seeing in the bios for memory speed is right, that's 133 in ddr speeds which is the same as 266.

If you are having problems getting it to run at 166 (333) fsb then it's likely because your cpu won't overclock that far. It's a 133 (266) fsb cpu.

Set the FSB to 133 and leave the memory on auto and it will be working at the proper speeds.
