my guess is that this board is clocking down the fsb to match the memory speed of 100 Mhz frequency (200mhz DDR) (400mhz QDR as the FSB works). which would explain it all.
Are you using ddr 200 memory?
Yeah the ram is running at 200Mhz.
Guess I gottah look around for some 266Mhz DDR ram..
Thanks for pointing it out its kind of Obvious now.
