Dominator and Asus Striker


Recommended Posts

K my vendor has these modules in stock wanna go for the 8500C5 ones and get 2 pairs so I'm ready for some heavy action...


But I've been reading nothing but trouble about these modules not being correctly recognised by the mobo, running fine with 2 gigs but not with 4 gigs let alone overclocking the CPU with 4 gig installed.


Ram guy can you share me some tips on how to setup these modules to get them working at 1066Mhz 5-5-5-15 2T with 4 gigs and still have an overclock on the CPU... these are my current settings , running the latest 1002 bios.

Board works fine with 4 gigs (other brand) plus they are 8500 and 6400 modules... I just set the bios to the slowest part and it booted fine and overclocked fine too ...but these settings don't seem to work with the dominator series as I shared these settings with other users that own them...

mmm doing some testing now with my other brand ram, boots fine with 1600/800 2 tsettings though gives errors wihtin minutes on SuperPi and Orthos...


Lowered like you suggested to 1600/667 speeds runs fine then, thing is if you want to run this mobotype with 4gigs you need to lower the ram speed to 667to get it going stable. So buying expensive ram is a waste of money then...


thing that bothers me now is is it a chipset limitation or fault in the bios of the mobomaker ? I have a friend who tested with another brand than mine and he has same issues on EVGA board (24 bios)
