geil ddr 400 ram
is it true that I can not overclock my system becasue my ram is not any faster than pc 3200?
I had though it was as simple as going into the bios and pressing the plus key to overclock 10%-20% etc....
This is what I read that confuses me.
"Let's first take a look at the different models of pentium 4's.
A - 400 MHz FSB 100 (CPU Frequency) X 4 (Quad Pumping) = 400 MHz FSB
B - 533 MHz FSB 133 (CPU Frequency) X 4 (Quad Pumping) = 533 MHz FSB
C - 800 MHz FSB 200 (CPU Frequency) X 4 (Quad Pumping) = 800 MHz FSB
So in order to run a Pentium 4 A (Before Overclocking) your DDR must be able to run at 200 MHz, respectively (100 (CPU Frequency x 2 (DDR)). In order to run a Pentium 4 B (Again, before Overclocking) your DDR must be able to run at 266 MHz, and with a Pentium 4 C, 400 MHz.
PC2100 = 266 MHz DDR
PC2400 = 300 MHz DDR
PC2700 = 333 MHz DDR
PC3000 = 366 MHz DDR
PC3200 = 400 MHz DDR
PC3500 = 433 MHz DDR
PC3700 = 466 MHz DDR
PC4000 = 500 MHz DDR
For instance if you wanted to overclock your Pentium 4 2.8 C Chip, you must know that you need DDR above PC3200 because PC3200 only (without counting overclocking) supports 400 MHz (200FSB x 2)
14 x 200 = 2800 MHz
4 x 200 = 800 FSB
2 x 200 = 400 MHz DDR "
