Guys,

I've been trying to diagnose some serious game freeze-ups since I put another 2GB of the TWINX-6400C4DHX in my machine, along with a new GTX275 (my 8800GTX died, but I did 'bake' her back to...

Guys,

I bought a second set of XMS2-DHX for my Gigabyte P35-DS3R (so I could have 4GB of memory to give 64-bit Windows 7 a real test).

Stupid me, I didn't pay attention to the fact that current...

Excellent! That's the way I've had it since install. I'm running the 1014 BIOS and I can get 2.5-3-3-6 at 2.75 volts with the system left at 2T.

I saw the 1015 BIOS is out, but the quick notes...

2 GB of TWINX-3200C2 and the XP Page File

My install of XP Pro is acting quite weird - I have 2 sets of TWINX1024-3200C2, and Windows is telling me the optimum page file size is 3070 MB. Fine, I set it to that, and then re-boot. Comes back...

I answered my own question last night - I have 2 TWINX1024-3200c2 sets (4 sticks) here in my machine. I pushed up the DRAM voltage to 2.75 and dropped the latencies to 2.5-3-3-6. I was playing CS:S,...
