Asus mobo - p4p8xse
I recently purchased this asus mobo to to upgrade my comp, only my comp seems slower than when i had my old mobo.
one change i noticed was my ram,
my ram is a pc 3200 (DDR 400) Samsung 512 mb. (200 mhz)
but when i check my system specs with Aida32
(a program that helps you check your software/hardware settings and info),my ram only goes to 167mhz or so. Shouldn't it be 200mhz?
Here's a more specific system spec of my comp
P4 2.4 ghz cpu ( non HT)
pc 3200 Samsung 512mb ram
Asus P4P8X-SE mobo
80gb of Hdd
I asked one of my friends at school,
he said that it was all because of my cpu
he said, since my mobo supports hyper threading but my cpu isnt HT, the ram and FSB must downclock to match up the cpu.
Is this rly true?
ALso, one more problem.
I thought my mobo was 800/533/400MHZ FSB
but when i read my manual it says 800*(overclocking mode)/533/400MHZ
what's the mean of this? i tried to overclock my FSB, but it's just impossible. My cpu would burn if i do that.
My friend again said that this is because of my cpu,
i wanna know if this is really true or not
thanks for reading a long thread guys =)
