How to get RAM upto Speed?

ello,
all rightie i created a thread like a week or two ago about a similar thing but decided not to revive a dead thread.....
so what it is, is that i have some Kingston HyperX 1066 DDR2 ram sticks in my pc but only an E1400 which has a FSB of 800. I was talking to a Guy at PC Gallery and he said that i could up my FSB on my CPU. does anybody know how i can do this?

Thank you in advance:

-Braydon

I would watch these videos on the EP45-UD3P motherboard overclock. This guy has done a good job. All you have to watch are parts 1-3 and it will give you some basic knowledge about the BIOS settings. Yours will be different but the idea is the same. I had to bump my voltage up on my RAM to get it running correct. Good luck!

Hi brayway......

if you want to just up your RAM speed from 800mhz to 1066mhz, you can do this in the BIOS by entering the ''Advanced options'' setting the AI to ''manual'' & altering the ''RAM divider'' or ''RAM frequency''

you should be able to do this without any voltage boost.

the system is defaulting your RAM to 800mhz with a 1-1 ratio with your CPU, just change it & away you go.....

if you want to OC the CPU also & keep the 1-1 ratio then you'll probably also want to look at THIS

well... i think its a ''frequency'' adjustment so you'll see the listed ''mhz'' options, just select the closest one to 1066mhz & reboot.. (i have the P5K & im sure its the same BIOS)

also did you up the voltage on the CPU at all while upping the FSB..??
