I tried another couple things while I was at it. Different power supply yielded no success, even with nothing but the bare essentials connected. Nor did trying both Memtest86+ or GoldMemory 5.x on Hiren's BootCD, both version 9.9 & 10.1. Hard lockup before the programs even fully load and begin testing. (meaning that it's not the drivers, nor Windows, this is a hardware-level issue).

I tried re-downloading & re-flashing BIOS 5002 also, after which I pulled the battery for 10 min, and reset to defaults. No change.

Using either one of the two Mushkin 2GB sticks I picked up yesterday allows me to get into Win7 just fine, and can run stress tests for as long as I like, regardless of which slot the one module occupies (i.e they all work), but as soon as I introduce both modules to ANY combination of slots, the machine refuses to do what it's asked. Memtest86, Win7, Linux live CD, etc... Nothing works.

I also just tried both one, and then two out of my 4 Corsair XMS2 modules, and I can do the same thing with them... in fact I have two of them populating A2/B2 right now @ 800 5-5-5-18 2T, stock JEDEC voltage, and I'm typing this out on the machine now. Just finished a stress test on them too, no issues at all. I also had them both in A1/B1 and there was no problems there either.

This really doesn't make much sense, does it? Defective board perhaps?

Should I try returning the Mushkin Blackline 800, 5-4-4-12 @ 1.8, and trying to get some normal, regular, non-EPP, non-SLI, run-of-the-mill DDR2-800 RAM? It would seem that's all my board likes in all four slots at one time...
One more thing to try is increase the cpu-nb ht voltage 1 or 2 notches.(1.2v stock) see if that helps.

Good luck

Gyro

Hey N2 are you running you 460s at factory overclocked speeds or did you bump them up? Just wondering because ill be adding another one this week for my M2n32, cant wait to see how 2 cards preform. How do you determine what a safe overclock is do you go by full load temps. I was reading that 70c is exceptable for these cards seems pretty hot to me i want them to last a long while.

If you just want to test the CPU, there are numerous benchmarks you can employ.

Some are often used for stress-testing CPU overclocks (eg. LinX, Prime95)
while others are more commonly used for performance analysis (Cinebench,
PovRay, etc.)

Which are you doing? Checking that performance is as it should be, or
testing an overclock for stability?

In that case use Cinebench (CPU test), PovRay, and you could also run the
CPU tests in 3DMark06 (etc.), compare to other systems with similar CPU
spec on the ORB.

Indeed, feel free to try the old Blender test, compare to my summary list (it
focuses on SGIs, but I've included my 4GHz i7 system):

http://www.sgidepot.co.uk/perfcomp_RENDER1_blender.html

(there is an 'official' results page, but it's full of bogus numbers)


With respect to PovRay, see:

Those 460 gtx Vantage scores I posted a while ago were w/the GPU's all stock.

ej52 I am able to run Dirt2 at 1920x1080 all maxed out and it's playable and looks great.

Done it at last!



Can someone help with Ram timings please?

Currently showing 401.9 from DDR2 800. Doesn't sound right.

Ta.

Oh, and can I join the club now please?
