TWIN2X 4096- 8500C5DF 1066 Issues


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i recently put together a new system and i have the following issue, the ram boots fine with all 4GB into Vista at 800mhz. I change the ram timing as per instructions from the corsair site







And i cant boot into windows at all, i get numerous post errors and windows errors also straight after post such as "windows cant find a certain file to boot etc" i ran memtest86 for 8 hours with 15 passes on both modules with no errors at all. I also tried each module individually with the above timings AND PRESTO with only 1 module inserted it booted at 1066 into windows like a charm. So my problem is with both modules inserted with 1066 timings and voltages i cant get into windows PERIOD only with stock 800 timings. Once i use 1 module with 1066 timings its all great, ive tried different slots with the dual channel config with no luck at all..


Anyone able to shed light on this?

Well after some reading on the Asus site someone had the same problem to me with his Mobo and Ram, i changed the bios of my board to the 408 bios and now it boots fine with the new timings etc


im running a FSB:RAM ratio of 3:4


1066 ram with a 3.8 OC


ill run a full night of orthos and 8 hours of memtest86 to verify its all good
