Default FBS:DRAM ratio question.

So I was reading thru some OC'ing threads out there and they some state I should change the FBS: DRAM to 1:1. Mine is currently 5:6. Thing is I don't know how to do it in the BIOS (I don't see any options for it at least).

Your FSB is somewhere around 355MHz, am I right? So make your RAM run at 355(710) as well. This will make the FSB: DRAM ratio 1:1.

My current FSB is 400MHz (6750 has a 8x mulitplier).

I'm guessing this will improve my DRAM timing, cause I was running at 4:4:4:12 (rated) before OC'ing and now its jump to 5:5:7:18. I had to manual set the 4:4:4:12 and I was stable but when I OC'd I wasn't so I disabled the manual timing.
