MSI K9A2 Platinum ram trouble

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I'm haveing some trouble with my RAM atm.
I've just put some geil black dragon PC2-8500 (2x2gb) in and I can seem to get it to run at the correct speed, I can only get it to 6400 speed (400Mhz)

I dont really know much about ram tbh but this is getting on my wick now.

I've upped the voltage to 2.2v but I really haven't a clue how to sort this so any help would be great.

Cheers Dave

You have to set the RAM manually for those speeds, go to your BIOS and in DRAM configuration change from "Auto" to "Manual" and set the timings that you see in "JEDEC#3" in your BIOS, change the DRAM frequency from "400MHz or 800MHz" to "533MHz or 1066MHz", save and try to boot.

Already done that, see the last pic.

Why I only see single channel? Do you only have a single stick installed?

Yes I figured I'd try to get it to run on one stick before I put both in, seemed like a logical thing to do.

I've sorted it now, re-flashed the bios and it picked it up right away. Must have been a glitch.
