Biostar 550 Don't support x2 3600 - Page 3

post #21 of 33
Have you tried any other memory? Do you think maybe the fact that they're "cheap" could somehow be part of the problem?

I didn't try other ram sticks but If I'm running 285FSB with A 400mhz Divider than that should give me 570MHz. Stock memory speed is 667mhz so I don't think my ram would be my problem when it's underclocked almost 100Mhz

I had some cheap ram and if I set the devider too low or loosened the timings too much it would'nt even boot. LOL

that's weird, out of my socket: Slot 1, 478, 754, 939 overclocking Lowering the value ram to very slow speeds it would work. I guess Am2 is new so I'll try my friends Buffalo Firestix DDR2 800Mhz 2x1GB sticks to make sure.

Could it be that the CPU just won't do it...? You know, that happens to some CPUs... they just have a limit... (please note: sarcasm in use). But really, maybe you got a CPU from a batch that doesn't OC as high, in which case thi theoretical "trouble shooting" won't make much of a difference...

that board supports ALL X2 CPU's with the latest bios...

It does work well with Cheap ram if you set it right...ram needs to be rated at 2.2v or less as the bios only goes to 2.1v

also the 400mhz divider has issues for some ram...667 and 533 seem to work the best...if you need OVER STOCK VOLTAGE to get 2.8ghz you ram is NOT set right...

enable ddrII timings and set TRFC to 105ns or 127.5ns and try that...

you have to use Orthos to get the ram set right...Memtest v1.70 will get you close but Orthos is the key...

Well, I can certainly vouch that the T550 will work right off the bat since I just got mine today and it's up and running. OC'd to 2200mhz currently. Will go higher tomorrow. Replaced the fan on my AC64 with a Sunon 92mm fan and I am now at 25c idle. Not sure on load yet. Need to run some tests.

That's pretty good, please post load. I would love to know. I may get this cooler since it's so cheap.
