How does deviders work?

Recommended Posts

I thought deviders were dependant on the HTT, so if I were running 300 and I had a 5:6 devider, then that would mean: 300/6*5=250. But apparently that is not the caise? I've tried searching the forums but can't seem to find anything that explains it. Any help to explain this to me would be much appreciated. :)

 

Thanks,

RAM dividers are independent from your HTT. They only depends on your CPU.

 

I'll give you an example: you have a 3000+ at 1800 MHz default. If you want to run your system with 166 MHz RAM, the CPU needs an divider for it. It is 11 for an 3000+, because 1800/166=~11.

 

If you ran your 3000+ with an HTT of 300 MHz, then you have 2700 MHz (given you don't change the CPU multiplier of 9). Now when you set 166 MHz RAM in your BIOS, you have 245 MHz on your RAM (2700/11=245).
