The 1333 in this case represents a memory multiplier at a 1:2 ratio to the FSB, not actual frequency. Since you have a 400FSB, your memory is running at 800MHz, which is DDR1600. Check it with CPU-Z and see the MEMORY tab. If you have your system set up correctly, you should see 800MHz.

tried those settings, but on post it still shows as 1333....

yea just checked...and 1333 in bios means 1333 ram...no divider going on there...

 

cpu z shows 667

 

i see the next 1600 ram (cl7 tho) shows these settings:

not sure how u get the 1:2 memory divider working,

memory has always been wat i set it as in bios....

even if fsb is 460....it changes ram speeds to select from.

i settle on 1533 which shows in cpuz as 3:5 divider...

 

when set at 400fsb...can choose 1333 or 1600.

 

1333 is 1333

and 1600 wont boot

hmm ok ive tried all options, setting 1333 in bios gives me 1333 ram no matter wat. thats at POST & cpuz.

 

which option is the memory controller volts? not the dram volts?

 

i have now got ram running 1600 (POST/cpuz) by choosing 1600 in bios...and 1.85 volts...

 

into windows and stable for first time with 1600mhz ram!!

 

9300mb/s write, 8700mb/s read, better than when i was at 1533mhz.

 

going to return to higher cpu overclock (450fsb), and see if ram will still do 1600

You can't do 1600 with a 450FSB. 450FSB using the 1:2 divider (aka the 1600 setting) will give you 950MHz aka DDR1800.

 

FYI, the memory controller is also called the NB or north bridge. In the link above, your tested NB voltage for this kit is actually 1.55v.

yep just discovered that it would be 1800 lol....off to shop to buy some 1800 tomorrow haha i wish mrs would murder...$200+ for 4gb for 1800 in NZ

 

ahh ok nb = mem controller....yes have northbridge at 1.55 for all tests,

but wouldnt let me post/boot 1600...it was the 1.85v that did it

 

got to 420fsb/3.36ghz....1680 ram now....

wondering how high 1600mhz modules can be pushed...

gonna find out :P

 

thanks mate, some confusion cleared up.

 

and how do i add my bc2 sig, couldnt find it in user cp
