Corsair XMS2 FSB:DRAM Ratio of 5:6


Recommended Posts

Hi, i recently purchased 4gb (2x2gb) of xms2 ddr2 800mhz ram and installed it into my dell optiplex 330 system (intel g31/g33 chipset).

It is showing a fsb:dram ratio of 5:6 is this any good? my previous memory was generic samsung stuff running at 667mhz and had a ratio of 3:4 all i want to know is this change normal or should it be better??


Currently my xms2 memory is running fine at 1.8v 5-5-5-18 and at 800mhz dual channel symmetric mode, but wanted to know if the ratio is ok?


My cpu is an Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 running @ 3.0ghz with a 1333fsb.


I know people say this ram should run at higher voltages but unfortunatly dell do not have this option in the bios so im stuck with 1.8v dimms, but i guess im safe with this ram becouse on the labels it says "1.80v ver 4.7" and its been running fine for hours with no problems.


Is the 5:6 ratio fine for my cpu/memory? just to keep my mind at peace, thanks
