ChaosEngine Posted November 19, 2004 Share Posted November 19, 2004 Please Ignore my posts till post 5, as this the source of the problem was the max cpu fsb that could be reached. but i am leaving the posts here rather than clearing them... Hi there, I recently bought a twinX1024 PC3700 set of dimms and have been having a very difficult time trying to get the ram beyond 200MHz. I done a small amount of trawling through the past threads and picked out the one below but it doesn't seem like the isuse was resolved. Even so I have followed what advice ramguy posted and it makes no difference. http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23960&highlight=PC3700 Back to my problem: the motherboard I have is a soltek sl75 frn2-l (nforce2 ultra), I have the latest power user bios v1.7, and an unlocked Amd XP1700+ (dlt3c), the ram is refusing to run over 200MHz on the motherboard, anything above 200MHz causes ever increasing amounts of system errors. Now I haven't done a full run through with the ms ram tester, but I have been playing HL2 and D3 on the computer and these games are pretty sensitive to any system faults so are pretty good rooting out system instability. Now I have pretty much eliminated all my other system components from the list of potential error causes, leaving the memory, now when the system crashes which it always does even the windows error reporting utility report. hope someone can help.
