WELL, ran memtest86 on 2 sticks of RAM, errors start on first pass test 3 and 4.....

SOOOOO We then run each sticks alone, NO ERRORS! each stick by itselfs.. We have an idea but what do you guys think.

Also the G.skill ram worked better at 1333 at 1.7volts. A G.skill rep left a reply on Newegg about it.

Be back later, wife is rushing me out the door
Chops I wanted to ask you a question abuot the RMA of your Chip as well as the Board. Did AMD tell you what was actually wrong or IF anything was wrong and what they tested for? Also the Same thing with the motherboard. (can't remember if you even RMA that too or just the Board...)

Did you guys test which dimm slots worked with which Dimms? Just a note on the Ram settings.

I discovered tonight that when I have my

Ram @ 1653MHz 8-8-8-30 @2.02v
CPU @ 3224Mhz (248 x 13) @ 1.375v
CPU-NB @ 2480Mhz @ 1.30 (1.32 in Everest)
NB Chipset @ 1.25v
HTlink @ 1.25v
SB Chipset @ 1.25v

Prime95 Blend would fail on core 2 everytime at like 5-6 minutes.

So I adjusted the CPU DDR-PHY (CPU VDDR) up to 1.25v and Boom it still going at over 3 hours so far! So that might be somehting to look into..

SORRY FOR THE LONG REPLY EVERYONE!!!

Here is what my DIMM 1 and 2 look like And DIMM 3 and 4:
both removed to save space

They have different bandwidth speed? (666 and 533) What's that mean?

I got my Raid 0 working but haven't crank any voltages to overclock my CPU and rams yet but I will ask soon.

BTW nice toy NCspecV81!

Technically 8 gigs is not neccessary... Unless you are running major apps at once or Running a 32bit OS with a SSD. If you are running a 32Bit OS and SSd then you can appoint 4 gigs to Disc cache, I believe and Make that SSD scream, from I've heard. I believe it's over at OCZ where the explain it. It's your perogative though.


EDIT: You could try setting them to the same Timings. Completely

Mastiff, Im new to this RMA thing, but I sent my Board and CPU back to NewEgg. Will they inform me of any findings?

As for the Ram, we tested each stick of the G.skill and each stick of the OCZ in DIMM 1. Im not sure im following what your asking. How do you test the other DIMMs? cant you only run 1 stick in the first DIMM?

Ok long time reader first time poster. Was just wondering if you guys thought this was a good deal for this package to get my build started.Would it be wise to jump on this deal cause I have been told something about 955 dropping in price after Dec. any help would be great thanks looking forward using this MSI board.

some would say yes, but that depends on weather it is a BGIBOX chip or a BGMBOX chip.(BGM = C3) 790FX is $159 and 955(BGI) is $165 on the egg

You should be able to test each of the Dimm Slots that you want to use by installing one stick at a time and run some tests. (i.e. 1st stick test in each Dimm Slot by itself, install 2nd Stick, test in each Dimm by itself.) That way you re testing all Dimm Slots and how the interact with each stick.

As you will read, posted by Eclipseaudio, there is Either the "C2 955" or the "C3 955". If you can, which I would wait for it, go with the C3 955 or 965 for that matter. They're both 125watts. It will be able to AT LEAST handle 4 memory Modules at once without a issue. possibly even Clock 2 Modules better!!! You choice though...

(Windows 7) Go to Start buton> Control panel> Programs and features> highlight the software you want to uninstall> Select "uninstall" NEXT TO "Organize".

If you want to save power go with the BIOS feature.

Thanks for the response well Ive confirmed its a c2 but I think 300$ isn't much of a punch for this bundle.
