TWIN2X2048-8500C5D wont post


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


I've had my current PC of a couple of years now and from day one set it up with a mild overclock.


Pushed the system clock from 266 up to 333MHz taking my E6600 from 2.4 to 3.0 GHz. I use the 667 ram setting to get a 4:5 divider and have had the ram Corsair PC-6400 (800) sitting at 832Mhz with never an issue.


I put a new video card into my system and was looking for ways to give the system a boost until next year when I will update the cpu/mobo/ram.


I tried uping the system clock to 355MHz pushing the E6600 to 3.2GHz and figured if I put in some PC 8500 (1066MHz) and changed the ram divider to 800 (2:3) I would have a nice boost to the system for the next 6 months or so.


My only problem is the system will not post with the PC-8500 ram installed.

I have some Corsair Dominator CM2X1024-8500CD5 (2 x 1 GB) Timings are 5-5-5-15 2.1V ver1.5.


The system seems quite stable with the increase in clock speed and the old ram installed.


Have I missed something? Does my system setup sound right?

Could it be the ram is the issue?

Should I try different ram?


Any suggestion will be much welcomed.
