LOCKUPS= 2xVS512MB400 @ MSI K7N2 Delta-L


Recommended Posts



since I got 2 bars of Value Select 512 RAM, I get regular lockups on sophisticated Games (HL2, simulations...) tried to use them seperately, but same mistake happens. Tried to run the FSB @ 166, but doesn't show any improvement.

Thanks in advance for your help !

Arew you running default RAM settings?.

If so what does the BIOS show for timings/freq?




yes...I used to use RAM SPD settings (2,5 / 3 / 3 / 8) @ 2,7 volt. I cant really beleive that both bars are really damaged the same way. I rather think it might be a bios setting or rather non compatibility with this MSI K7N2 Delta MB?


I have tried soemthing: I have set those 400 bars @ 333 and the crashes almost dissapeared. Unfotunately its visibly slower and I really want to use 400 Mhz. :sigh!:
