wait.. sooo??? im lost.. please help me out here...
so stock fsb is only 266???? is that right? so its only running ddr532?? odd number..
Stock FSB is 266 so a "divider" is used to run the RAM higher than the FSB. I quoted divider, since in this case, it is actually used to make the RAM run faster than the FSB, rather than slower. The common ones used at stock settings would be:
2:3 - FSB:RAM - So at a FSB of 266 the RAM is at 400 or DDR2-800
4:5 - FSB:RAM - So at a FSB of 266 the RAM is at 333 or DDR2-667
