Mine only shows 2gb sometimes after a CMOS reset.

you know it sounds like you are running your ram ganged and not unganged and also have the memory hole remapping off which it really should be off in windows 7 64bit but enabled in windows xp so if you are doing the dual boot thing leave the memory hole remapping on

But keep in mind running dual boot like this is going to hurt a higher Overclock if that is also something you plan on doing

Glad I could help, Like everyone else is saying, the only way to use more than 3.96gb of ram is to run a 64bit (X64) copy of windows, Not a 32bit (X86) like your ruining now, It should be no problem to acquire a 64 bit copy of win7, but x64 windows XP was launched before anything supported it and sorta flopped, you can still find it, its just a bit more challenging so good luck

I've said 3 time snow, I'm dual booting XP and Win 7. I use Win7 MOST the time, but still need XP on my machine for certain hardware. I'm getting full 8GB in 64bit Win 7, and only like 3GB in XP, because of my 570 with 1.2GB RAM. I have a copy of XP 64 bit, yeah, it flopped hard. LOL

So, I think I got this board worked out, wish it could push my RAM to 1600 like I had before this board tho, but Im stuck at 1333 for now / stability. Its all good tho, when BD drops, I'll be getting new RAM. 16GB most likely.

Thanks for the help!

I have to know sorry, what hardware are you running that is so importantly un-replaceable for win xp 32bit?
post #656 of 10135
I have a pretty old Roland USB midi controller (piano.) Its rare, and AWESOME, and a must have. I will not replace it. I also have a nice Haupppaggue capture card that onyl works for 32 bit XP, but I dont need that as often as the midi controller.

got you, sorry just had to see what was so important you understand, I had one guy that was attached to sound-blaster live 5.1 card for some dumb reason he thought it sounded better than the on-board sound and was doing about the same thing at first as you but his thing was much weirder (Dual Boot, But with LINUX), I understand the Midi thing 100% as I kinda wish they never did away with the sound card com jack (think 15 pin) I had a controller I loved that only worked with that type

K, heres a screen of what Im going for right now. 4ghz, 2800+nb, as close to 2000ht, and tight timings, plus decent FSB clock. Based on my timings, manually set for 7-7-7-20-1t, what should my tRC be, thats set to AUTO right now.

I THINK it should be 27, tRAS + tRP. Would that help, or should I keep it? What effects does tRC have? I've ALWAYS been confused by RAM timings, and the math behind it. lol

I check every day, but none so far, a bios Update is in the works as far as I know, but isnt on the top of any priority lists because It seems to have a solid first release, are you expiriencing any issues or do you just want to do a bios update??
