mazda_626 Posted May 5, 2005 Share Posted May 5, 2005 i have a little problem that i would like to sort out but first i'll give you all my info. mobo: Abit Ic7-max3 CPU: P4 3.4Ghz prescott (TT big water cooled) HDD's: 2x raptor 35Gb raided to onboard silicon image controller, samsung 160Gb sata attached to ich5 controller, western digital Pata 80Gb. PSU: enermax 420w pci devices: creative audigy LS VGA: Asus A9800XT Fans: 3x 120mm, 2x 80mm CD roms: 1x cd/rw, 1x dvd/rw lighting: TT uv lamp, green led's OS: XP home i think thats it :roll: I had ADATA DDR500, 2x 512Mb. the best i could run em was 2.8v, 2.5-3-3-5 with GAT turbo-A-A-A-D and at 236Mhz stable, or 245Mhz unstable I thought I'd upgraded to corsair TWINX1024-4000PRO but the best i can get from these are 2.5-4-4-6 with GAT A-A-A-D-D and 220Mhz stable or 230Mhz miserable (the whole os crashed and nortons gone somewhere and cant uninstall it, had to use fixboot) and i tried from 2.5v to 2.9v. the adata would just not post if it didnt like the settings, i'd hold insert while trying to post (after some bad settings had been made) and i'd be bought into the bios to make the changes, all was great! but i wanted better. with the corsair, if i put in bad settings then the insert key trick usually didnt work and i had to shut off the comp power for 1 min then when it started, it would automatically bring me into the bios which is suppose to mean bad things happened. by bad settings i mean any thing above 220Mhz. the other thing was that occasionally w waring would come up stating that the keyboard was not found or a long pulsing audible tone would sound or just the HDD light would light or the xp screen would come on then the system reboots and since i had the corsair in the comp nortons left the buildng (not suprised). i have read alot of review to know that this ram should go higher than 220Mhz stable especially since ADATA can, so i think i need help, is my PSU to small? voltages seem fine, 12 is about 11.89v-12.04v. i tried the ram as singles, one got to 250Mhz but wouldnt finnish posting, 3-4-4-8, but was stable at 240Mhz while the other got to 240Mhz and did the same thing but was stable at 230Mhz the adata single will go to 245Mhz stable each i'm now running on the ADATA but want to go to the corsair, help! :(: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
