I've had to clock mine down to 800mhz :(

it's pretty clear this ram doesn't want to work at all with these series

of Asus boards, judging by the number of posts from ppl

with Asus boards, i've spoken to their tech support, and all they advised me to do is use differently branded ram, and they say that tiny variations

in Dominators architecture, means that the board's memory controller is trying

to time differently, etc

they also told me to set higher latency figures, they didn't work either,


no way am i changing ram after paying so much for Dominator modules,

i'm so annoyed with Asus, i'll be getting another brand of board next time,

for all the trouble they caused me.

Did you test the modules one at a time to make sure one was not failing and what did you have the settings set to for both CPU and memory?


yes, but sadly when i powered down the pc (i have to make it sleep in order to be able to boot next time) it would only boot if i pressed f2 to load defaults,

the settings that allowed it to boot yesterday no longer work,


memtest 3.3 reported 0 errors, with each module tested singly,

the modules are XMS850 V1.2 07090108-2


got them at 2.1 v and it refuses to boot at all at 2-2-2-15

btw it decided to run at 1066mhz after the last reset!
