Optimising TWIN2X4096-8500C5/ Asus setup


Recommended Posts

Please can some kind person on the Forum explain how I can get the full 8Gb of my 2 x TWIN2X4096-8500C5 sets to run at 1066MHz on my Asus MA478 Pro based PC?


The Asus forum is no help as it says that "due to AM2+/AM3 processor limitation the board can only support 1 PC8500 DIMM per channel".


The system is rock-solid at Auto (800MHz) settings: but the (latest 1501 version) BIOS allows 1067MHz by manually altering RAM frequency. The BIOS also seems to over-report the voltage supplied to the DIMMs; which will not run at 2.17v setting. The M/B only allows 0.09v increments from 1.90v start point, & at reported 2.26 or 2.35v it will post & boot; BUT with sporadic BSODs saying things like: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON-PAGED_AREA.


If someone can tell me how to eradicate these BSODs I'd be really grateful.:confused::confused:
