My cousin overclocked the ram of the computer my parents have in Taiwan.  However, it had been causing problems with computer restarting by itself and stuff, but I don't remember what frequency it was before my cousin changed it.  Is there a proper way to determine what frequency the ram should be just by the cpu frequency?  Thanks in advance.

Btw, the computer is about two years old.


I'm betting it's 133Mhz. Most everything made in the past several years has a core FSB speed of 133Mhz whether it uses the quad bus like Intel or the DDR rates like AMD.

What speed and what type of CPU is it? If all he did was up the FSB speed and the CPU is stock speeds, you can then look up the stock FSB speed for that chip and that will tell you for sure.

IF he altered the CPU speed as well, you'd need to set the BIOS option back to default which auto detects in most cases, but depending on the board, that doesn't always work right. - The central hub of the ROM hacking community.


Thanks.  I'll tell my dad about that. ^^
