Memory Frequency ???

Should the Memory Frequency be at auto or 100%

I have the 8RDA+ with the barton 2500 and Corsair 3200 512mb ram.

I have it at 100% but i was not sure.

As stated above auto and 100% should be the same thing, but I always set mine to 100%- never quite sure what auto might do.

Memory Frequency of 100% means 100% of FSB. 200 MHz FSB, with memory frequency set to 100%, results in 200 MHz memory speed. That's great, if the memory is capable of 200MHz operation - but a problem if the memory won't run at 200MHz (PC2700 or PC2100).

When Memory Frequency is set to Auto, the memory will be set by BIOS to run at the speed recorded in the SPD chip on memory module(s), regardless of FSB. Think of it as 'Memory Safe Mode'.

Hope this helps!

I guess i got a luckey stick of ram.

I have mine at 210x10 = 2100

i had it before 215x9.5 = 2050

But i had it up to 218 and no problems, i have not done a voltage mod my voltage is at 2.77

When i get home from work im going to leave my multi at 10 and start moving the memory up.
