All Rights Reserved. My mobo has FSB of 1066/1333MHz. Since Intel has 4 data transfers per clock cycle, is the real FSB 1066/4 = 266.5mhz? click site This means your CPU would be running near -192° C.
Thanks in advance EVGA P55 SLI Intel Core i5-750 EVGA GTS 250 Patriot Sector 5 4GB (2x2GB) Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB Antec TruePower 750W Cooler Master Hyper 212+ Antec 902 solved Does the RAM, MOBO, AND CPU speed(MHZ) have to match? But, looking at newegg/intel, the stock FSB is 1066mhz, wtf?! Thanks a bunch!
I honestly have no idea. Is this possible or would I ruin the processor, memory? so i guess i can safely buy cheaper ram down to the lowest syncronous speed with no affect on performance if i don't plan on ocing or upgrading in the future. Last edited by system7; 01-30-2011 at 06:51 AM.
even setting to 533 gives something like DDR551??? With the FSB at 533 the RAM should automatically run at 333 anyway. If you put in faster RAM, say DDR2-667 or DDR2-800, you won't see a benefit in the memory bandwidth you can utilize since the FSB becomes a bottleneck.However, this doesn't mean pepsi_max2k Seniorius Lurkius Registered: Nov 24, 2007Posts: 5 Posted: Wed Dec 19, 2007 11:42 am sorry prototyped...
It'll be pretty much just as fast as say 5-5-5-15 1066MHz RAM (as an example). Also, I read somewhere that there is barrier to the FSB on intel chips... Your memory is 667MHz, which is 2 x from the base clock of 333MHz. Moreover, say I overclocked my CPU to 400mhz x 10 = 4.0ghz.
