I have new build with an A8N-SLI Deluxe mobo and an Opteron 146. Everything is running fine at stock. Problem is, I can't figure out how the BIOS settings work. They sure don't work like my MSI Neo4. For instance, if I increase the CPU frequency from 200 to 225 and reboot, the CPU speed goes from 2GHz to 1.8GHz???

Also, I'm trying to figure out how Gogar comes up with his figures. They don't make sense to me. For instance, if I plug in the following values [3000, 240, 1050, 320, 11x], on the second line I get:

CPU [ 10 x 300 = 3000 ] Memory [ 3:4, 150, DDR300 = 214.28 (DDR429) ]

What am I missing here? Doesn't 214.28 * 4 / 3 = 285.7 ?? Where does he get 300 ??
