Redcorn Posted October 27, 2006 Share Posted October 27, 2006 Hello, My old AMD system died and I had no choice but to upgrade to the Intel 6600. Newegg had a combo deal where you buy the P532SLI SE Delux with the Corsair 6400C4 2 gig set. I installed everything and ran on defualt mb settings flashing the Bios for the board to version 0501. I got the system to install a new copy of windows XP SP2 with no problems installed all the windows updates, installed chipset drivers, installled video and audio drivers ok. Then I try to install my usual video games I play online. I started with COD2 and the system reboots. I tried several times with same result. I looked on here for help and found after the fact that this motherboard does not support Corsair 6400C4 ram even though the box of the motherboard says Corsair ready, the memory chips say EPP SLI nvidia approved and both were bundled together by Newegg. I strictly use my computer for online gaming so this is going to kill me spending this cash and not be able to play. When im in Windows XP no problems as soon as I go into games bam it reboots. I can do anything I want but games. I saw several posts about setting the bios memory to 667 freq, volt 2.1, timings 4-4-4-12. Tried all three combos with variations of them all in auto or off or default and the system says it would not take the new overclock settings and crashes. The only time it doesnt crash is when left alone on DDR800 mode and everything in full auto. I have the following system: P5N32SLI SE DELUX, INtel 6600, Corsair 2gb 6400c4 ram, WD740GB raptor, Plextor DVDDL SATA, 750watt PCPOWERANDCOOLING whisper model, LIAN-LI VP1000PBplus2 case. Two 7950GT overclocked by EVGA video cards. Nothing on my system is overclocked by me anyways. I try to run stock always. Please HELP anyone, this would be one expensive mistake if I cant get this system running Should I return these memory sticks to Newegg and get different brand?
