I read through parts fo that thread, and it's actually insanely informative, though I think the vocabulary is a bit different from my bios.
Is the "LDT" the same as the HT Frequency (currently 5x) in my bios? And the HTT Frequency they refer in that thread is the same as the FSB in my bios?
So basically the LDT (or HTT multiplier) is just changed as you increase the FSB, correct? You just lower the multiplier to ensure that it's closest to 2000HTT. Why can't you leave the multiplier at 5x and have 250 FSB? That's 1250 * 2, 2500HTT. Is that just ridiculous? possible? Why do you want it closest to 2000?
I have a feeling that that screenshot was taken with some other ridiculous processor. I rechecked in my bios, and the "Adjust CPU Ratio" was set to "startup". After consulting the manual, this setting is supposed to find the fastest possible multiplier. I just set it to 10x anyway since that was the max for me.
It was a bit of a wierd thing though. I set my multiplier to 9x before setting it to 10x, and I got a clock speed of 1ghz! CPU-Z said my multiplier was 5x even though it was at 9x. Maybe it was a changing bug or something, not a big deal.
Here's a picture of CPU-Z:
As you can see, my memory clock only seems to be at 175mhz. I remember before it was at 200mhz while my CPU multiplier was at "startup" instead of 10x.
And if you take a look at the cpu clock, its at 2.1ghz. I'm assuming it must be because of the motherboard's auto-overclock feature set to 5%.
With DDR550, could I get a decent overclock with it? Most people were telling me to get PC-3200 so that you can run tighter timings, but another friend said the difference is ridiculously miniscule. Can I actually use the DDR550 to its advantage?
