Default BIOS memory freq. for LESS??

ok guys i went into my bios this morning to check my cpu temp. and i looked at the memory frequency and it said 266mhz but when i overclock my cpu from 2.0ghz to 2.4 it says 319mhz its weird and i know for a fact i have have DDR400mhz 1 gig and i DEFINITLY know my motherboard supports it. soo do you think that my cpu isnt using the full power of that pc3200 400mhz? or what ? thx guyz

its easy, the bios set the memory speed equal to the front side bus, which delivers optimal performance. You cant set it to 400mhz though, unless you overclock even higher.

if your motherboard supports it yes. But try to oc your current chip further, I want to see your results.
