Question Why can't I use a mem divider?

I run fine OCed to 240 htt with a 1:1 ratio but I want to push my CPU higher.

With my value ram I have to use a divider in order to do that but when ever i try to set any divider like 5:6 or whatever, it crashes on me. It only works on 1:1 or 1:2 everything else crashes.

Any ideas? Someone said that ram timings could possibly be the cause? I know nothing about ram timings.

Help pls

The CORSAIR ValueSelect RAM is known to be hit or miss with DFI, generally you want to stay away from things that say "value". It could also be that your CPU has a weak memory controller, but it is more than likely you just need to tweak some of the settings on the DRAM configuration. Sorry I can't help you there, I know nothing of that RAM. You might want to head over to DFI-street.com for more help.
so, umm, err yeah
