ASUS CHV-z, new bios and memory issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I borked up my bios this weekend and thought it would be a good opportunity to test something that has been nagging at me about the two top asus boards bios versions and memory problems. I was recently trying to help a couple of posters with Kingston 2400 2x8 memory and it was causing nothing but problems. So I put my G.Skill 2400 in after flashing to the latest CHV-z bios and was not really surprised from what I saw. The bios isn't reading the SPD/XMP info correctly and there seem to be some other underlying issues. The only way I could get my NB up to 2600 was with 1.45v which is way too much compared to normal.
Here's my results if interested in having a peak

It a AMD chip, XMP is for Intel. AMD uses AMP and it's pretty much the same as XMP. AMD broads don't always read the XMP info correct, you have to set it manually.

I've never had good luck with any brand memory but G Skill in AMD boards when OC'ing.

I have only used Crucial mem for years now and have never had any probs on any of my AMD systems. O.C.,s Very well too.

I realize this and from what I have seen G.Skiil has one profile that will register correctly most of the time. What got me started was a poster that had some Kingston Hyper Beast that we just couldn't get to run. He posted up the SPD section from the Sabertooth board and the numbers were just seriously out of whack.
It's easy enough to set main timings on AMD boards but there are alot that just aren't visible to you within bios so you can not change them.If the board is reading them incorrectly you don't have the ability to change it unless you were to flash different timings to the Ram itself. Which in the case of new ram you may just as well return it for something more compatible.
