Hi all,

I originally over-clocked my AMD64 3000+ VENICE CPU a while back - founds its max stable (around 2.5 @1.55V) but then backed off considerably (now @ 2.25@1.45) for use 24/7 because at the time i only had the stock cooler!

However, now i have an Arctic Cooling Freezer i was going to have another crack at it :D

The main problem last time was the lack of options within the BIOS of my ASUS A8N-Sli to set different MEM DIVIDERS.... the only options i have are:

200 = 2:1 = HTT @ 400
266 = 1.5:1 = HTT @ 300
333 = 1.2:1 = HTT @ 240
400 = 1:1 = HTT @ 200

433... (many more above but not going to be needed...)

Correct me if i am wrong (and probably am...)

But basically the only option i have for overclocking (where MEM is not running real slow) is to run HTT@240 and multi @9 = 2160 (am actually at 250*9=2250, which over-clocks the MEM a tiny bit to 205). Because there is no way my chip is going to run near 300*9...

Is there a BIOS update that adds more mem divider ptions because some mboards have another option between 1:1 and 2:1 than mine dont they?

thanks all

You can soft-divide with A64-Tweaker under Windows...works with my setup, but I did not install it permanently (start during bootup) yet...
A64 Tweaker also gives you the 150 (DDR300 in asus terms) divider

Cool that sounds like the precise divider that i need for my OC!

So with A64 Tweaker... the divider kicks in when windows boots?

Never used this application sorry for my noobiness :D

yeh did have it @ 300*8... are there no issues with the lower multiplier setting?

know this seems really random but system seemed lil 'odd' when i had it at either *8 or *8.5 and not *9... probably just me though so might give it another attempt at *8!

Cool and Quiet won't work of you do not overclock based on the max divider, but otherwise (ie not using CnQ) you are fine with 8x
