|hey skip. i'm using whatever memory you advise i should. in the manual it states the following: |
"DDR400: to run DDR400 memory at full speed requires an Intel Pentium 4 processor
with 800 MHz front side bus (FSB) frequency."
"DDR333: to run DDR333 memory at full speed requires an Intel Pentium 4 processor
with 533 MHz FSB frequency. DDR333 memory will run at 320 MHz frequency when
using an Intel Pentium 4 processor with 800 MHz FSB frequency."
"DDR266: DDR266 memory may only be used with an Intel Pentium 4 processor with
400 MHz or 533 MHz FSB frequency only."
I have two 128mb ddr266 sticks, three 256mb ddr333 sticks, and like ten 256 ddr400 sticks. i'd wanna use the 400s because i have more of them. what would you do ? jam said intels run well with a 4:5 ratio between cpu fsb and ram freq. only thing i'm missing is : am I supposed to use the advertised 533fsb when i do that ratio? or cut the quadpump to a fourth, and thus get 133 for fsb, therefore have to use like.. 190 ram :)))) no such thing. help :P
I always say it's best to doublecheck.
