RAM incompatability

Recommended Posts

I have a DFI Lanparty NF4 UT SLI-DR board paired up with a 1 GB Value Select Kit from Corsair. I am getting constant blue screens of death, which I have finally isolated to a compatability issue between Corsair and the motherboard. Both seem to be working fine on their own, but not functioning properly together. Your website lists this specific RAM module as being compatible, I don't know what to do next. Are there bios setttings which will remedy this situation. From reading other forums this seems to be a common but not officially recognized issue.

Please make sure you have the latest BIOS installed for your MB (download the Beta version) and load optimized defaults settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

VS512MB400 or VS1GBKIT400

Genie BIOS/DRAM Configuration

DRAM Frequency Set: 2:1 or 400MHz or 200 (if option are 133/166/200)

Command per Clock: Disabled

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

And leave the rest at AUTO setting

Genie BIOS

FSB BUS Frequency: 200

LDT/FSB Frequency ratio: 5X

LDT Bus Transfer Width: 16 16

CPU/FSB Frequency ratio: Auto

PCI Ex: 100

K8 cool N’ quiet: Disable

CPU VID Start Up Value: Startup

CPU VID Control: Startup

CPU VID Special Control: Auto

Chipset Voltage Control: 1.6

DRAM Voltage Control: 2.8

PC Health Status: Please change all temperature at 25C

All other settings are motherboards defaults

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
