you have 2 sticks of 1gb ram, you should enable dual channel. also what version of bios are you running? better get the 1701 bios if your going to put a phenom in it.

Hi,

I'm only on 1102. Any reason to upgrade just for this system's stability at the moment?

Just noticed on the 17 April when Vista SP1 was installed, new Nvidia drivers were also installed (no details however). If I roll back - which version do you guys recommend?

well the phenoms i don't believe are officially supported. when i installed mine i had to go to the 1701 bios to even get it to work at all. for some reason it just didnt like my board. but after the bios it works great, i am able to oc the poop out of my 940be, just need better cooling. went from a amd 5200 x2 to my phenom, and man, the diff is night and day.

All Phenoms exept 955 and 965 are offically supported, you just have to download the latest bios.

I couldn't see any bios settings for this, but from the manual, page 2-12, am I supposed to put the DIMMs in matching colours. I.e Yellow, yellow as currently I'm populating the first black and yellow?

I'll also try upgrading the Nvidia drivers to 195.81

yes, they are supposed to be in matching color slots. when they are then you will find the setting in bios, or it will auto enable it for you. when you mobo post you will see something like ddr2-800 dual channel.

No crashes today with the 195.81 drivers and Dimms in the right slots.....

Looking forward to continued stability before the bios flash and CPU upgrade

did it ever crash when ur in bios?
post #6289 of 12343
No never, but I've only spent about 20 mins total in there!

But, after a crash (always screen freeze), it did sometimes need to be powered down before it would past the POST.
