async or sync ram.


Recommended Posts



Is it correct that the HT bus and RAM bus must be in sync, when overclocking the Athlon 64 X2?


My system:

Athlon X2 3800+ (2Ghz@2.6 Ghz)

Twinx1024-3200XLPT (200 2-2-2-5 1t @ 260 3-4-4-8 2t)

Asus A8n-e bios 1010.

Powercolor x850xt.

Western digital 200 Gb HD.


I have overclocked my CPU to 2600 Mhz, by raising the FSB to 260 and not touching the RAM ration (1:1). Id had to change the timings to 3-4-4-8 2t. Which is pretty awfull! I can't figure out if I should go for a high RAM bus. (520) Or use a RAM divider - async HT/RAM bus, with better timings. I hope someone can clear this out for me!


Best regards.
