Whats a DRam Divider?

Hello all im a neuby here and ive been trying to get my system up to at least 160 fsb and if you look at my specs below i am pretty sure i can get my system to that point. Now i have just flashed my computer to the 8khi2116 bios and well it seems that i cant pass 150 and someon told me something about a dram divider to put it too like 3/4 now its foriegn to me but im sure you guys are all laughing it up cause it seems like common knowledge soo if you guys would be so kind as to explain to me and what this is and what it does. Oh yea and one more question would lowering my AGP 4X to 2 X or 1 X help me reach higher fsb? Thank you in advance.

An dram divider sets the memory clock to system bus clock ratio.

For example:

3/4 divider = 100/133 = 112.5/150 = 124.5/166 = 150/200

The first number being the memory clock, the second being the FSB.

All you have to do to enable the 3/4 ddr-sdram divider on the EP8KHA+ is manually set the memory speed to PC1600 in the BIOS.

Having said that, most often you will see better memory performance while running the memory in sync with the FSB. So it is better to run 150/150 than 150/200 in most cases.

PC1600 in the bios means set it to 100, rather than auto or 133. But dimmreaper is correct that you will get better memory scores running it synchronous.
