Opteron 144 with Gigabyte K8SNC/ Patriot 2gb dual channel mem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.. I just recently bought an Opty 144 from another member here and am having troubles. I believe the opty is good, but either my mem or my mobo isn't liking it too much.

First, I tried to keep the same settings as I did for my A64 3200+ and everything was fine.
Htt 4x
FSB 250
9x multi

So this essentially gave me a 1000 ht and a 2.250mhz clock. Well, I tried to push my mem up to 250-260 because i've read review of my mem running up to 276. I couldn't get passed bios, as it would lock up when detecting ide drives and I would have to reboot. Go back into bios, lower the fsb back to 250 and it get's into windows. Once in windows it would be fine for about 2-3 mins and then would crash. Soooo.. I started messing with the htt and dropped it down to 3x, upped my fsb and what not and got back into windows. This time system crashed, rebooted and i got the corrupted Ntldr and had to reformat.

While trying to reformat my board looked as it was artifacting with missing words, partial words and what not. At this point it took about an hour for me to finally partition my drives and get windows xp installed again. For some reason my system kept hanging up on the bios or halfway through the install. This was even after i put my bios settings back to default.

Since this has happened, i've had random crashes, 1 bsd, and some random restarts. All of which weren't happening with my current setup in my profile. Keep in mind that the idle temps for this chip have been 31-36°c.

Anyone wanna take a stab @ this and help a brotha out!?

Did you make a typo in your motherboard model? I think this is your board: GA-K8NSC-939. Correct me if I am wrong.

Which BIOS are you running on it. For the Opteron you have, you'll need version 7 or newer:

I believe I have F8, the latest. That was the first thing i did, flash my bios. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure. I'll have to check when i get home.

Did you play around with your RAM sticks? different slots, single stick, etc.

Also, do a run of memtest86..

You may have other issues. I have the same board w/Opty 146 that was doing the same type of artifacting and crashing. I bought another KNSC-939 and the problems went away. Unfortunately when I RMA'd my first board they didn't/couldn't fix it. It took 3 months for them to tell me nothing is wrong with it and that I don't know how to set it up properly . Now I can't even sell it because it isn't fixed. No more Gigabyte's for me...
