sitickle Posted September 10, 2008 Share Posted September 10, 2008 Ive read a few posts bout corsair ram and my mobo, well asus mobos and i dont understand the erros and incompatabilities. I had 4Gb Corsair xms2 ddr2 800 (black and puple heat spreaders) 4x1gb sticks installed on a asrock mobo with an old Athlon x2 5200 then ive upgraded to my current spec with Q9450 and P5Q still using the 4 1Gb xms2 ddr2 800, never had any faults and just recently opted for 4gb Dominator 1066 8500c5 in 2x2gb sticks with the airflow fan. Did clean install with vista 64bit ultimate as i got new samsung drives. Installed and work perfectly with 1066 ddr2 speed and 2.1v in bios. No overclock on q9450. temps of cpu at 2.66 30,30,36,36 idle Memory temps are not even hot too touch (seperate note, is there a way of reading memory temps?) I switch the pc on with the button and everything comes to life then after a second go off, then everything comes back on after another second and everything is fine, no faults, all games work, dvds etc. Anyone know why i get power on, power off then power on. no beeps, posts and boots to windows fine, runns fine. Bios revision is 0501 - Maybe this is why??? I know its one of those if it aint broke dont fix it but would like reassurance that its just an asus thing and i aint gonna want to go on my pc one day and nothing work! Was thinking of getting 8gb ram so another 4gb of dominator as i am a graphic designer and always on photoshop etc. Will it be a problem with my board or not and will it help???
