FatherTime Posted November 27, 2004 Share Posted November 27, 2004 Ahh, it is so nice to find a thread dealing with my same problem. I've only been dealing with this since May 2004!!! OK, so -- AMD's site says specifically, only use registered memory but YOU'RE saying don't use registered but rather unbuffered and that will fix the problem. I bought my system from Cyberpower and I would think they would have done the legwork on fixing this issue. Instead they let me buy a system that crashes randomly do to this problem. The computer freezes, audible "system falied due to cpu overclocking" and I can't get it to reboot UNTIL I pull out a memory stick and pop it back in again. Please review my rig and confirm for me that I need the above mentioned memory in lieu of what I have now: AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 Corsair XMS 1 gig (2 X CMX512R-3200C2) Asus SK8V MB Geforce 6800 GT Western Digital Raptor HD Also, I have not done anything with the bios. I don't have a clue how to tweek with that and I'm hoping I don't have to. If I can simply exchange the memory, that would be cool. In fact, can I do that through Corsair directly to avoid dealin with CyberPower??? Thanks in advance for your response. Lastly, will I be sacraficing anything with the unregistered memory? Speed, etc? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
