CM2X2048-8500C5D & ATI Catalyst Drivers

I was curious as to why my video card drivers crash when I set my system memory to DDR2 1066. If I leave my memory settings in the BIOS set to auto (which makes them run at SPD settings of DDR2 800), everything runs fine. This only seems to happen when I play Call of Duty 4. If I set my memory to DDR2 1066, my computer boots, is stable, and everything works (such as web browsing, office software, etc.), but if I try and play the game, the catalyst drivers crash every time after about 5 minutes or so. Again, this is only at DDR2 1066, not DDR2 800, and it only seems to be 3D games.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

The AMD Phenom is known to be wonky with high end DRAM speeds. Motherboard manufacturers often do not release BIOS revisions that help unless they are top tier. Those who purchase top tier might find a BIOS fix. I would not advise anyone purchasing Phenom to purchase higher than 6400C4 parts. There's too much chances there will be issues.
