GA-8KNXP Problem w/new corsair memory, HELP


Recommended Posts

Hi hope you can help me, I have a GA-8KNXP v1 runing optimized default bios with 2 x 512 ddr400 ram of Samsung in dual channel in dimm 1 and 4, P4 2.6 800 FSB,it was runing fine until I bought another 2 x 512 ddr400 of Corsair value select, when I install the two new sticks in dimm 2 and 4 to run in dual channel my computer keeps re-booting over and over, XP never loads not even from the instal disk of XP, if I remove the new ram the computer then restarts but then my OS is not stable and when I try to start in safe mode it will simply lock up, I then have to re install my OS. Any help or sugestions would be greatly appreciated, I have already send the first set of new ram back and got another set thinking that maybe the ram was bad.

Thank you for any help,

There seems to be too much of a difference between the Corsair and

Samsung Modules to run them together.

Like I said mixing different brands with Corsair in most cases usually does'nt work, depending on the system.


This becomes harder to do with 4 sticks.

You could try to manually set the timings to the pair with the highest latency

and bump the Dimm voltage to 2.7.

I doubt they'll run together though.


If you want to run 2GB of RAM, I'd suggest getting 4 of the same modules.
