Memory Ratio

How do I use the memory ratio to overlcock in the BIOS. I really want to get it so that my FSB will be stock (333 mhz) and memory to be DDR433.

 

Does my FSB have to be the same as my CPU Bus speed (used when overclocking the CPU with the multiplier)??

If there is a place in your BIOS to do it then you can do it. It is set to 1:1 by default. You looking for a setting like 6:5 or 6:4. To tell the truth I doubt you would notice much improvement by doing this. Most people change the divider to like a 5:6 divider so they can have a high fsb and the memory to run at it's rated speed. Hope this helps.

get the FSB higher and the mem will go higher... 1,9ghz for a barton 2500+ is really bad. Just get the fsb as high as you can.

 

EDIT: your FSB speed is 166 and the cpu speed is 2x166=333 couse you have a athlon 2500+. when you raise the FSB speed to, for example, 168 then the cpu bus speed would be at 2x168=336. If you were to have a p4 northwood proc w/ht then the FSB would be @ 200 and the cpu bus speed @ 800(4x200).
