FSB increase or higher RAM speed?

Q: FSB increase or higher RAM speed?

I recently purchased a new computer (parts) from Newegg. My motherboard is an ASRock P45XE,
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-p45-core,2110-2.html
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157143
My processor is an E8400, and I have 4GB of G.Skill DDR2 1066.

In the BIOS settings, I change the FSB of my processor from 333 to 356. Which is 3.0Ghz to 3.21Ghz. Increasing this, changes my DRAM frequency from 1066 to 1138. For some reason, my computer won't function after the BIOS screen with 3.21Ghz AND DDR2 1138.

Although, I am able to run my computer safely at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854.

So my question is... Should I run my computer at 3.0Ghz and DDR2 1066? Or should I run it at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854? For the best performance

Preferred Solution: FSB increase or higher RAM speed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: FSB increase or higher RAM speed?

You can OC and manually set a divider in the BIOS to allow you to run your RAM and FSB at different speeds. For your given numbers, you can set a RAM:FSB divider of 8:5.

Your OC may also be limited by your motherboard. But generally speaking, a higher CPU frequency nets a greater boost in performance compared to a higher RAM frequency.

Hello.
I have this new PC:
CPU: I-5 2500 (without the 'k') @ 3.3Ghz
GPU: ASUS GTX 580 direct cu II overclocked to 878 Mhz
Motherboard: Intel DH67CL
RAM: APACER 8GB DDR3 @ 1333 Mhz

I was trying to play Rome: Total War (a game made way back in 2004) at max settings and at 1600x900 resolution (which is the max resolution of my monitor) and I get an average framerate of 20 fps, often even lower. So I checked GPU usage during the game, turns out it never reached 20%. But when I lowered the graphics settings, the fps immediately jumped to 60. As far as I can tell from task manager, there seems to be high CPU usage during gaming, but it doesn't tell how much exactly. So does this mean higher graphics settings require faster CPU clocks and not just a faster GPU? Or does it just mean there's a stability problem with my PC that's affecting its performance?
 

A:Do you need higher CPU speed to play at higher graphics settings in games?

What power supply do you have?

So, I've always kind of had this issue (not something really new). However, after testing my wife's PC to see if it were a router issue or something, I realized I'm in a bad spot. My speed test had my D/L at like .6 Mbps and my U/L at like 1.14. Both spiked during the test around 2.0. Comparing to my wife's PC when I did the test was 14.2Mbps D/L and 3.22 Mbps U/L. Her PC has the hard line into it, while mine is directly connected to the router. The provider goes through her PC, etc.

Is there some tests I could do to find out if it's 1.) My PC 2.) My Router or 3.) Just some settings.

Thank you.

Also, I saw someone ask on another one of these issues for the netstat -n, so here is mine.

While I understand this happens when doing simple tasks like browsing the web to save battery, this is incredibly anoying while gaming. When I look in task manager, the cpu won't get higher than 0,38 GHz and the usage won't get higher than 14%, while a few days ago everything was working fine, with speeds even up to 2,90 GHz when gaming while the speed decreases when doing simple tasks while browsing to save power.

I am currently building a system with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor on an Asus P5B mobo and am currently trying to decide on memory. My budget is about £80 and for that I can get a 1gb dual channel set from a good brand like OCZ but I don't know whether I should get 800mhz CL5 memory or 667mhz CL4 memory for the best performance.

Thanks in advance
mrbrownstone
 

A:Lower latency or higher speed ram?

I don't know much about ram timings and speeds, except for my personal shopping research. I THINK that the 800mhz CL5 ram would be better than the 667mhz CL4, but I really have no idea, hopefully someone else on this forum could give you (and me) a better idea of what to look for in ram timings and clock speeds.
The only advice i can give you is this:
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING
That means know what brand the ram is: is the brand trustworthy. Read the reviews and see what the people who have bought that specific ram think about it. And finally read the description very carefully, many sites can sometimes throught you off on their description of the item.
I only say this because of my endless problems with ram over the years, hopefully you can be more succesfull than me.

Good luck

----Also check what kind of warrenty is offered with the ram.

I know for CPUs a higher processor speed is usually better than a slower speed with more cores, I was wondering if the same holds true for GPUs or do other factors come into play.
I ask as I am considering building my own pc and this is one area I canít get my head around. I tried Googling it but just get answers to the same question for CPUs.
 

A:GPUs more cores or higher clock speed

No, more cores with slower speeds is better is all situations, especially CPU's. That processing can be done in parrallel is the main advantage of multiple cores (aside from the the necessity of them for heat-dissipation).

Most people talk about there CPU fans being to loud and that they wanna know how to decrease their speed because theyd rather have peace and quiet and have there CPU take some heat. Well i have speedfan and my cpu fan rpm sits around 3400rpm, ive seen it get into the 5000rpm ranges. How would i go about having full control of my cpu fan? I wanna have it running at maximum speed all the time, i wanna bring my cpu temps below 40C at idle.
 

A:How to increase CPU Fan Speed

It depends on the type of fan you have.

Some of them alter their own speed according to the temperature, some of them have their speed adjusted by the motherboard.

How many wires run into your fan? If it's three wires then there is no way to control its speed. If it's four wires then connecting the speed control wire to +5V should do the trick.

If you check out the below image of windows default Internet connection status dialer. You see that Sent Compression is 67% but Receiving compression is only 2%. What's the meaning of this and we can improve or increase the receiving compression. In my system Windows XP SP1, IE6 is installed. And i already increase the port speed of my modem (Com3) to 115200 BPS.
 

A:How to increase receiving speed.

You apparently do more receiving than downloading. Almost everything that you are "sending" is an acknowledgement that you received the packet. These acknowledgements can be compressed much more than the data itself, therefore you will only get a 2%-3% receive compression, but a much higher send compression.

A:is there a way to increase wifi speed?

Hi there

1)Your Router needs to support the new Wireless-N standard up to 600 mbs from the presemt 54 mbs (WIRELESS-G).

2) Your Wireless card need to support it too.

Wireless-N routers are a bit more expensive -- and the problem is that if you are using a Laptop it's not easy to change the wireless chip so you'll have to use an external USB Wireless-N card -- also not cheap.

I don't think there will be too many PUBLIC WI FI places that will have wireless -n system for ages yet so you are stuck with wireless g @ 54 MBS max.

If you are on a shared wireless connection then the number of users will also slow it down -- especially if you have a load of users such as in a Hotel downloading Music / streaming audio into their hotel rooms etc.

Here's a wiki on Wireless-n (do further research as always with wiki).

A:How Do You Increase Broadband Speed?

I verywell could be. The download speed is determined by several factors. The most restrictive is how much bandwidth will the remote server let you have to download the software. I have 6Mbps download speed. MajorGeeks and Download.com seldom allow me more than 250Kbps and it is not uncommon to be as low as 150Kbps. With that said I have downloaded from Source.Forge.com at over 2.5Mbps on occassion. Have you tried testing your download speed?
