no oc on cpu, memory is 1/3 in cpuz?

old processor amd 3000+ 939 stock in cpu z on the memory tab read fsb:dram CPU/11 I assume that meant 1/1 ratio, I upgraded to a fx60 now cpu z reports a ratio of fsb:dram 13, again I assume that is 1/3, I have changed nothing in the bios, it's at the same 200mhz memory setting as with the old cpu.

It's my understanding that a fsb/memory ratio of 1/1 is better than an odd divider.

things that i've done are, delete the old cpu z program dl latest version,amd dual core optimizer, check that all voltages are the same and reset the cmos.

why the odd divider???

system is
msi neo platinum 939
adata vitesta ram 2x 1 gig ddr1
fx 60 NOT oc
maxtor 300 gig sata
7800 gs agp
550 watt psu

You assumed wrong.
Those are the multipliers for the CPUs. So 13 is 13x multiplier for the FX60.

I don't think that the 3000+ has a 11x multiplier though.
At 11x I mostly see the 3500+ in the charts.

If I'm wrong please tell me, with old cpu 3000+ on first page of cpuz it said, core speed 1800mhz, multiplier x9 buss speed 200.9 ht link 1000

fx60 on the first page core speed 2611.9,multiplier x13 buss speed 200.9 ht link 1000

on the memory tab thats when the numbers are different, freqency is the same 200.9mhz the next one lower is the only difference fsb:dram/13
all the rest on the memory page are the same

So, on the memory tab, does it say :

FSB:DRAM 1:1 with the 3000+ and

FSB:DRAM 1:3 with the FX60?

And on the CPU tab it says multiplier x9 (3000+) and x13 (FX60)?

yes, that is what cpu z is telling me.

Ahh...scratching head...I don't know.

What settings do you have in BIOS for memory ratio? Because CPUz could be wrong, you know.
