DDR3 - Sandy Bridge Multiplier (Asus P8Z68-V)

Recommended Posts

How is the Sandy Bridge Z68 board multiplier calculated.

According to AIDA64 ratio is 32:3 (8:1 by CPU-Z).

Set is:

CPU 4700Mhz (x47)

DDR3 2133Mhz

Board(P8Z68-V) is at 100.0Mhz

So, from what is that calculated ? (10,665 x 100 = 1066.5 x Double Data Rate = 2133Mhz <- Just doesn't make any sense where the 8:1 comes from.)

or is the memory controller always 266Mhz Quad pumped (x4) 1333Mhz which would make 2133Mhz DDR3 2333 / 266 to be 8:1.

----------------

Also while at it.. Would also like to say that PSU voltages are off.

* 5V is reporting 5.591v (by BIOS and on ASUS Probe this is 5.096v)

* 12V is reporting 7.843V (by BIOS and on ASUS Probe this is 12.072v and max droop on OCCT ain't even over 0,072v)

* -5V gives me -2.485V (by BIOS and on ASUS Probe this is -5.048v)

* There's VBAT voltage shown which is kinda weird.

32:3 means 1066 MHz memory clock, since the base clock of Sandy Bridge processors is nominal at 100 MHz. So 100 x 32 / 3 = 1066.66 MHz, which is the clock speed of DDR3-2133 memory modules.

We are not in a position to comment on values you obtain (the "8:1") using other software, since we're not behind those software in any ways. You can however contact the author of CPU-Z for clarification though.

As for the voltages, make sure to upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/aida64extremebuild1492kmc8wty1zbzip

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Let me know if you find any further issues in AIDA64 about your computer.
