george2 Posted December 10, 2004 Share Posted December 10, 2004 I have an Intel 925XE board i am testing, in the BIOS in memory section is the option for '667' which is naturally 667 for the RAM speed. This XMS2 is rated to that so chose 667 and the board no longer boots, have i damaged the RAM?? I would think not as normally things just hang, no excess volts were used just the 'Auto' setting. Now initially i thought it would be running 1:1, but since the SPD on these is 667 my guess is a RAM ratio kicked in and the RAM was trying to run way overclocked. I have been in AMD land for quite a while, normally a board hangs or just needs a CMOS reset to get going, this board has NO CMOS reset just a jumper block which performs a similar, but not the same function. This expensive stuff, i hope it is not cactus?? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
