  1. basicly my problem regards cpu:dram which i understand should
    infact be 1:1 ...

    im using the motherboard in the topic title , with it is an athlon64
    3400+ (newcastle) 754 procsessor running @ 2.4 ghz stock , htt
    200mhz X 12 multiplier . along with it is my new single sidded ddr
    dimms, pc3200 crucial value ram CL3.0-3-3-8 @ 200mhz ddr...

    the problem is that , now i installed newer ram which corresponds
    with the system im using , the cpu/dram ratio is only 1:12 or cpu/12 ....
    i replaced some pc2700 whcih gave a ratio of 1:16 ...

    thanks for any help you can provide , and your time spent on the
    problem ... Daniel

    2400mhz / 12 = 200mhz, which is what your Ram should be running at. What seems to be the problem ?

    well , thats just the thing , that is what my proscesser is running at , and my ram is at 200mhz aswell . but all diagnostic programs report a cpu:dram ratio of 1:12 , its realy screwed my mind , as no one anywhere has any explination , my thought relate to the motherboard im using . :S

    Right. Ram is running at 1 twelfth of the cpu.

    Well I'm curious as to what you're hoping diagnostic programs would report. Your Ram is supposed to run at 200mhz & so it does. Programs go about different ways reporting it. Some will report it in relation to the full clockspeed of the CPU, some will report in relation to the HTT link.

    In the end it doesn't matter as it is the same speed.
