Please install the modules in slots 2-4 or 3-4 depending on your MB for dual channle and then clear the bios and load setup defaults and set the following settings and then test the system with http://www.memtest.org.

CAS Latency CL=2.5

Row Cycle Time tRC Bios Default

Row Refresh Cyc Time tRFC Bios Default

Ras# to CAS# delay tRCD 3

Row to Row delay Bios Default

Min Ras# Active Time tRAS 6

Row Precharge Time tRP 3

Write Recovery Time Bios Default

Write to Read delay Bios Default

Read to Write Delay Bios Default

Refresh Period tREF Bios Default

Enable 2T Timing Disabled

Then test the system with http://www.memtest.org and make sure it's stable! If you have problems, I would set Enable 2T Timings to AUTO and test it again!

In addition, if you have a 90nm CPU you will need to get the latest beta bios from MSI's use forum as well.

Well, i got the memory but my Gigabyte motherboard just doesnt seem to like it running duel channel. Memtest ran for about 1 hour w/o any errors however Prime95 would fail almost immediately. Tried playing EQ2 for awhile but it would always crash to desktop. If I run with each memory stick by itself (i.e 1gb) everything is fine. If I run both sticks in single channel mode everything is ok. If run the memory in duel channel mode, 400mhz on my girfriends PC which has a MSI Neo2 Plat MB everything is fine.


Im able to run some Twinx1024-3200 C2PT (2x512) in DC mode at 400mhz without any problems...just not these 2048-3200 C2.


So I know the memory is good...its just its not compatible with my Gigabyte. I really want a 2gb system so i think im just gonna get myself an MSI..something I would have done originally if I had known how picky the Gigabyte MB was about memory.


On a bright note...2gb really does improove EQ2 and my girlfriend is quite happy =P
