Should I link or unlink, what's faster? You telling both telling something else
With the FSB at 1333Mhz, your CPU's FSB will be 333Mhz. Choose the option to Sync your RAM so that it runs at the same speed as your CPU's FSB. This will mean that your RAM is only running at 667Mhz but this is necessary as the nForce chipset cannot handle running RAM too much over 1:1 ratio when all memory slots are filled.

Your FSB of 1333 means that your cpu is running at (1333 / 4) * 9 = 2999.25 mhz. But linking your ram means your ram will run at (1333 / 4) * 2 = 667 mhz.

Which is slower than the intended 800 mhz speed of the ram.

So unlink your ram. Theoretically, linking ram is optimal if when you are going for a FSB of 1600.
Cpu running at (1600 / 4) * 9 = 3600 mhz and ram running at (1600 / 4) * 2 = 800 mhz. And that's the sweet spot for the E6600 duo core. Don't know about the quad cores though.
Just my thoughts. I did try to unlick, set my ram at 800 and my cpu at 1333 but had to reset my cmos. It looks like my cpu don't want settings higher then 1221 * 9

Every time I go higher the MB don't post and I have to restart and try lower settings. I'm a bit confused now because I took all the settings from this (still great) thread

Did you try starting over from system defaults and a fresh CMOS reset?

I agree this board can be finicky with 4x1GB, but it is entirely possible to run more aggressive than 1:1. I ran a whole slew of tests comparing 2x2 with 4x1 and found that 2x2 was no less sensitive. Take a look:

just summit that I found ...

I have the quad @ 1333 which gives me 3GHz and teh defining factor for me that was causing crashes was that my board was either overvolting my ram or something. My ram is corsair XMS2 DHX and rated for 2.1V, but setting it to 2.1 caused crashes all the time. I dropped it to 2V and everything was fine.

I also started with 2 gig, which allowed me to run the ram at 4-4-4-12 1T but had to change it to 2T when I added an extra 2 gig in, that was my only change going to 4 gig

Link your RAM and set it to Sync if you want to be able to run at 1T again. You'll be running your RAM lower than it's rated speed but that's the best you can do as none of he nForce chipsets cope well when all DIMM slots are filled.

I force my RAM to 1T...It worked some time but that crash
if it is for gaming OK...but if it is for 24/7 and serious business ..nope

So nobody knows anyway to read the S.M.A.R.T. info for a raptor raid 0 using this board?

It's a limitation of the RAID controller. Only very high end controllers, the likes of which you wouldn't find integrated into a motherboard can relay SMART info back up to the OS and even then it's not uncommon for only the proprietary software of the controller can read it.

On the EVEREST Ultimate forums there is a stickie pinned that reads...

Workaround for missing SMART info for nVIDIA chipsets under Vista, How to activate SMART info and HDD temperature reading for SATA drives

Quote:
Note: SMART information for RAID array members is not supported by RAID controllers, except for LSI MegaIDE and 3ware PATA/SATA controllers. It's yet again a limitation of RAID driver software, and cannot be fixed from software products like EVEREST.

Also note that the workaround explained below is only suitable for non-RAID configurations, since it is based on non-RAID driver swapping. Even if one would hack WinXP nVIDIA SATA RAID drivers into Vista, it wouldn't make SMART information or HDD temperature work at all.

Yep. SMART doesn't work on Intel's integrated RAID controller, either.

Good catch on the Everest forum. TBH, I didn't even know they had a forum! REP+

first set your memory setting to unlinked and then try 4-4-4-12 T1 if it work then try 4-4-4-8 T1 remember both on bus 800 MHZ.
