No fear, you can still use the CPU:RAM dividers to OC further, since for AMD at least, what really matters for the memory and processor is the raw CPU clock (higher the better), and the RAM timings. The actual bandwith of the memory really isn't as significant as those two things, and should be sacrificed to obtain those two things.
Yeah that has helped a lot. At first I thought I didn't have cpu:ram divider but then I figured out that they just express it as ram speed and not a % or ratio
So far guys I got it running completly stable at a 5/4 or 4/5 (not sure how you express it.) cpu:ram ratio. fsb is set to 260 and ram comes out to 216.45. So my cpu is clocked at 2.35ghz right now at 48c under load
I can't run anything over 220 on the ram, not even 220.5. So I was thinking I would lower the ratio again and bump the fsb a bit and then I could maybe run tighting timings on the ram since it will be running slower than stock. and hopefully hit 2.5ghz. I'm thinking I might make it since my temps are the same at 2.1 and 2.35 with the vcore set to auto and running about 1.5.
Does anybody have suggestions on vcore and what I should set it to for 2.35ghz? Or any other suggestions?
And does anyone know the stock fan speed max? Its running around 4250 now, and about 3600 before I OC'd.
FXs come with their mutipliers unlocked though...right?
Last time I checked they did.
