Question about EliteGroup K8M800-M2 Motherboard
I have a K8M800-M2 (PCB 1.0) that I've built up myself. I am running an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ CPU and 2x512MB of PC3200 RAM. My BIOS version is 1.1c.
My problem is this:
My RAM is running at 166 MHz (2667 Gb/s) even though the FSB is being driven by the CPU at 200 MHz (CPU multiplier is 10x and FSB is 200 MHz, resulting in a CPU frequency of 2000 MHz). Both the BIOS and AIDA32 report that the RAM is running at a slower frequency.
How do I speed up the RAM to run at its full 200 MHz speed?
Go to page 33 in your manual, see DRAM Clock/Drive Control & press enter. You can tweak your memory to run faster however your manual suggest not too. Hate to see you burn it up. As you will see everything is set to Auto:
Max Memclock (Mhz) [Auto]
1T/2T Memory Timing [Auto]
CAS# latency (Tcl) [Auto]
When DDR Timing Setting by is set to Manual, use this item to set the DRAM frequency. Would be nice to have a side panel fan blowing on your memory.
