JYG Posted August 15, 2008 Share Posted August 15, 2008 Greetings all! I recently upgraded my motherboard from ASUS P5K-deluxe to a ASUS P5Q-premium. I have used Corsair memory for all my recent builds (8500C5, next 8500CFD and latest 9136C5D) and been very happy with the performance. However, with my latest mb I immediately ran into weird problems: My best stable settings was 9,5x429 - memory at 1143MHz (memory at 2.1V). Not that bad I thought and decided to check out my max FSB... To my amazement when trying the memory at a 1:1 devider I couldn't even achieve stabilty at 6x450 - memory at 900MHz! First I thought that either my CPU, my motherboard or the BIOS was what caused the problems but since I wanted to try a x64 OS with 4Gb memory I decided to try with, for once, something other than Corsair memory. So, I ordered 2x2Gb ******** PC2-9600 1200Mhz memory. Surprise, surprise: With the exact same setting in the BIOS my new memory was stable at 6x564!!! So, nothing wrong with the CPU,mb or BIOS. Everything wrong with the CM2X1024-9136C5D :(: To Corsair: Shouldn't the 9136C5D memory work much better with P45 (in my case ASUS P5Q-premium) boards than they currently do???
