P5N-E SLI memory compatibility


Recommended Posts

Hello, hope someone can help - becoming extremely frustrated !!


Building a new set-up P5N-E SLI (BIOS Rev 0703) + Q6600 @2.4GHz + Twin 2xCM2X1024-6400C4

System posts OK, Had problems with crashes when trying to install XP (home edition32bit) but with memory in black slots, usb legacy disabled & setting memory to 4-4-4-12-2 manually as advised improves but not solves the problem.

Believe may be a memory fault as on post screen shows

memory 2096128K OK

installed memory 2097152K

is this expected or do I have some memory failures ?

have run memtest 86 v1.70 which indicates errors

have also tried 2nd set of memory with same results

Should I return all memory as faulty or can I remove the errors by BIOS adjustment ?

With first module in slot.1

test.7 80 errors

test.8 11 errors
