oguessous Posted January 14, 2007 Share Posted January 14, 2007 Everything works on the new system I built, except for the XMS2 Corsair DDR2-800 2GB kit I purchased (TWIN2X2048-6400). I can only use 1GB at a time, and it will only run with the SPD specs that the mobo sets (667 instead of 800, and running at 5-5-5-15). I updated the bios (ver 1.3), I tried increasing the voltage from 2.1v, I tried setting the latency to 5-5-5-12 as indicated on the RAM. I also tried 4-4-4-12, and other settings recommended by CPU-z . Nothing doing. The system will either refuse to boot, or will crash after 15 min. I can't tell you how many times I cleared the CMOS! :) I am extremely disappointed, since this RAM is supposed to be compatible with my Abit AW9D-MAX board (rig in signature). I am RMA'ing this to newegg. Will another Corsair DDR2-800 kit work for me, or should I go with another brand? Would the 4-4-4-12 version of the XMS2 work? Please only refer me to RAM that was tested with this mobo :sigh!: Thanks... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
