greed Posted September 10, 2008 Share Posted September 10, 2008 Hi Guys I have put 2 pairs of Corsair 4GB DDR2 XMS2 Dominator PC2-8500C5 TwinX (2x2GB) into my system giving me 8GB or RAM. I know from reading these forums that the RAM will not perform at listed specs when running on the Asus Extreme Striker. BUT I am a little surprised and concerned by the results I am seeing. Could I get some hand holding and reassurance that there isn't a problem with the RAM. 1. only one pair shows as SLI enabled in the Bios, the second pair doesn't 2. one stick lists as CM2x2048-6400C5DHX ?? (from the non sli pair) So I have tested in memtest for about 6 hours, no problems. I have been running the system fine, no BSOD or other obvious problems. Games (COD4, Team Fortress, etc) play fine. I tested the each individual 4GB pair in the system before testing with the full 8GB. When I check in the BIOS the first pair lists as SLI ENABLED. when I tested the second pair it says SLI DISABLED. That doesn't seem right? Also When I check the RAM in CPUID. The first three list as CM2x2048-8500C5D but the last stick lists as CM2x2048-6400C5DHX. is that what I should expect to see, I was a little surprised. I have included Screen shots below. Cheers for any help/advice you guys can provide CM2x2048-8500C5D http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/SPD1.gif http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/SPD2.gif http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/SPD3.gif CM2x2048-6400C5DHX http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/SPD4.gif http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/Ram1.gif http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/Ram2.gif http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/Ram3.gif http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/Ram4.gif http://www.seekdestroy.com/ram/Memory.gif Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
