New Ram = Overclock gone bad?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So before i was running my OC with 1 stick of 1gb ddr2 800 gskill(the red one)

9.5x300 = 2.85ghz
lowest multi so it was running 1:1
4-3-3-8-1T

I got my second 1gb stick from newegg today, popped it in, and was expecting to have to redo my OC, and as it posted it reset cmos.

I went back tried the same settings...it wouldnt boot. i cant get it to boot with anything past 290 now, even with the timings at 5-5-5-15 2T, and the ddr2 timings at 105 from 75.

Did i receive a defective stick and should i rma it, or is there something im missing?

More memory means more places for failure. More memory means more Integrated Memory Controller stress. Also, are you 100% the two DIMM are matching? Do they both use the same exact memory modules? The stick would be defective only if it can't run at stock by itself.
Once again...

remove cmos battery discharge electricity, load bios defaults, save and exit. Renter bios and follw Desperado1987's advice. Timings on auto should be bios default, just remeber to increase voltage.

same numbers on the sticker, everythings the same except the s/n which i wouldnt expect to be the same since each module would have its own right?

i wasnt sure on how to take out the battery, so i just reset the jumpers(end goal of resetting cmos is still same right?)

i went through all the options, and disabled spread spectrums, cool n quiet, the usual stuff.

i left the timings on auto, and put voltage at 1.35, set htt at 3x and upped my fsb to 300...still wouldnt work, cmos went back to default 201mhz.

right now im at 250 fsb posting,. ima try and reset again, see if i missed anything. would it hurt performance if i used the other 2 slots to see if it works?

No but, it doesn't matter which 2 slots it's in, aslong they are in the same colour. And 1.35v seems a bit low to me tho. Is that for the RAm or CPU?
