Default Re: What's more important, CPU Multiplier or CPU FSB?

Set your memory timings a bit loose while your messing. Voltages are just trial and error, but don't go too high.

EDIT: oh yeah. While you're upping the FSB make sure the RAM doesn't go over 800MHZ. You can set this after you've found the right FSB setting by altering the FSB-RAM ratio.
I don't have a FSB:RAM ratio, it's all linked. Unless the FSB:RAM ratio is something else in the BIOS? I stopped with my CPU at 292MHz @ 11x, RAM @ 355MHz and no BSOD's or errors.

So basically, I can have my multiplier at 5x and my CPU FSB at like 600MHz?

I don't want to get you drunk, but, ah, that's a very fine Chardonnay you're not drinking.
