jpongin Posted November 18, 2005 Share Posted November 18, 2005 I hope you guys are empathetic... here goes: I've been troubleshooting my new rig for the past week, and I'm hitting walls. I upgraded from my last system, a P4 3.2E ASUS P4C800-E Dlx, and so I was using the Ballistix DDR500 2GB Kit. First, the system doesn't recognize Dual Channel with the Ballistix sticks (Ballistix by you know who says they're compatible). This is precisely why I just ordered the Twinx2048-3500LLPRO from Newegg -- because they were actually tested on the Premium board right before packaging. BTW, funny story actually, I was in the middle of reading a review on Newegg for this RAM that was Posted today at 2:50pm saying that it was IN STOCK. I refreshed the page, and behold, they were in stock. I of course immediately purchased them. Then while I was in the middle of writing my review about how I got them too at 3:00pm, they went out of stock again!!!! These things are selling like hotcakes!!! Anyway, they should be arriving Monday. My question is this: Is my D/C not working because of my board or my Ballistix sticks? Individually, they POST, but my system doesn't properly reboot. Also, individually, they only work on Slots 3&4. On 1&2, it produces the "System failed memory test" error. I fear that it might be the board? My BIOS version is 1009. When the Twinx2048-3500LLPRO arrive on Monday, PLEASE PLEASE give me some initial mem timing settings for this board. I want to set everything up at stock MANUALLY. I know I'm asking more than just about this RAM, but I need some major expert help here. Thanks in advance RAMGuy... now cmon and make my day!
