Sabrehawk Posted November 24, 2005 Share Posted November 24, 2005 I cant get this board to report the rams as DDR 400 by default and i cannot get it to work in dual channel no matter what i try it will remain single channel mode. I have placed the modules in one Orange and one Yellow slot. Note that im not trying to overclock im simply trying to run my system at its advertised speeds. To get it to report DDR400 i have to manually adjust the Ram Divider (it is ? im quite new to A64) to 166. I also cannot run 1T with this rams i have to use 2T. (Wasnt 1T faster ?) I cant run 200 Ram Divider either. Wont post, repeating beeps and must clear cmos after that. (What happened to the standard of 4x power offs and bios will revert to failsafe? not on this one, holding insert key doesnt help either) Right now these buggers run in its slowest mode without any tweaks, as lameass CL3 no prime errors in benchmark. I ran these rams on my NF2 Epox 8rda+ with 11x200 mhz in dual channel and they had no prime errors in benchmark. Somewhere in the manual theres some diffuse blah about double sided memory sticks that cannot run dual channel if more than 512 mb ? I have no clue if i interpret this correctly though since its kinda vague what they write there and you couldnt read about this limitation anywhere on the net or store or at dfis product description , FAQ and stuff. Is there anything i can do about this ?!?!? Besides buying new ram AGAIN (getting these refunded at the shop will be very difficult cause they will blame the mobo maker and vice versa) :confused: :confused: :confused: :eek: :[pouts: Details of system are below... updated: I also have instable system after playing games for a while the system will hardlock, black screen some sounds repeating , have to shut off hard , after that constant reboot loop only got back to work with last known good configuration ! Im so damn annoyed by the damn industry bringing out incompatible **** all the time that i could run against a concrete wall screaming sometimes. CPU-Z version 1.31.
