Some advice please

Hi. First of all, I'm not to happy as, I tried to register twice and were told, this forum don't like spammers. Well I'm not a spammer and don't know why you make it so hard to register. :[pouts:

 

I have a P5NE-SLI and it is really bad for memory. I have a few things to ask.

 

I have 2GB of CM2X 1024-6400. I have tried many times to get this board to work with 4 memory sticks. No good even voltage did not work.

 

I have 4x1gb of CM2X 1024 but can't get them all to work. What are the setting I need to get them to work?

 

Also could you tell me how I can find out if your memory is SLI? Without placing in the motherboard.

 

And if I were to buy 2x2 GB what is the best one to use from corsair?

 

Some pics of my memory. This is what is in my computer now http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o199/Noname150/th_STA41721computermemory.png

 

 

 

And this is what I want to add but is not working.

Could someone please answer my questions. The one about the SLI should be simple enough.

 

If this is the poor service I get from corsair, then I will have to think about dumping them. Will pop back tomorrow and hope the RAM GUY will answer my questions.

Just looked at the logs. If you attempted to register with an email address under the same domain that your current account is registered under, then it looks like someone reported that email address 2 days ago as a spam account @ StopForumSpam.com. You can talk to them at this link.

Note that it's not recommended or guaranteed to mix kits that weren't tested / packaged together. Most likely you'll have to try 667 MHz.

Don't think any memory from any manufacturer supports that anymore. Was largely a marketing thing anyway.

Guaranteed-Compatible Memory for your Asus P5N-E SLI

Please be patient. You have to give them more than 6 hours. Don't forget on Mondays they have the backlog of people that have posted here as well as on the ticket system over the weekend.

The modules are normally marked with EPP however running 4 modules you will not be able to use the SLI Ready Memory Feature. Running 4 modules try them at 1.9v 5-5-5-18-2T and the memory frequency at 667MHz.

I

now see what has happend. Well I am annoyed about this because, I got classed as a spammer and that list is incorrect. I have been falsely accused as a spammer. Have tried to contact that site but it's so buggy and just don't work. It should be closed down as there is no fair appeals process. I though it was my IP address that was the problem.

So you can't use corsair memory mixed together? I though if you use the same memory, that it should all work.

 

Don't think any memory from any manufacturer supports that anymore. Was largely a marketing thing anyway.

 

Well the packaging says, SLI ready but I don't know what sticks are, as I have mixed them up. Is their no serial number that could say, if it's SLI or not?

 

Anyway thanks for the replies and sorry for the misunderstandings.

Sorry just seen your post.

The memory sticks don't have anything to say they are SLI but one of the plastic cases does. Because I mixed up the memory, I can't tell what one's are SLI.

 

The memory I have runs at 800MHZ. If I were to lower it to 667MHZ like you say, would I not lose performance? Or would 4GB make up for the lower clock rate?

I see, still no answer to my questions I posted yesterday. :(:

 

Well anyway I now have it working. Thanks to some advice on another forum.

 

Having memory at 667 did not work. So I put it back to 800 and input the timings you said.

 

But it did not work. So as advised on another forum, I put memory voltage up to 2.353v and now it's working, with all 4 sticks of RAM. Oh and I had to set memory to unlinked.
