AMD systems are dual channel,so you really need to be running two sticks,any reason why your only using 1 stick.

The games that I've run, well, pretty much just EVE Online, FEAR 1 crashes every time I get to a certain point in the game (still the HTSF Error), but that might be just an install issue, so yea, EVE Online


Erm, I actually have 4 sticks of ram... but it explains why when running with 2 I had more issues, I tried haveing it set up I I _ _ and I _ I _

I think it's C3, CPU-Z indicates Processor Revision RB-C3

Oh, and BIOS updated to 1.B0, pretty sure it's unnecessary, but I don't think it could hurt, could it? I could always just downgrade... Speaking of updating BIOS, every time I've flashed the BIOS I've gotten a CMOS Checksum Bad error... it only comes up once, and after running setup, it goes away, is this normal?
I actually get a CMOS Checksum error each and every time I flash, but it's because I always forget to put my BIOS settings back to default settings. My BIOS still has my OC settings each time I flash. If nothing else works for you, try a clean install of your OS. If your voltages aren't the problem then it's possible that it might be a driver error, as others have said.

It really doesn't matter, but many people prefer the blue DIMM slots over the black ones. Best way to know is to test which one is more stable for you. As Moorhen said, the RAM normally runs in dual-channel mode, so you'll see a big performance hit with a single stick.

I wouldn't say nothing else works for me. I decided that instead of taking the sane approach, I'd go for the overclock... and after increasing freq to 3.6ghz and cpu-nb freq to 2.4ghz, 3dmark06 ran for at least 30 minutes fine... I left for dinner around 20-25 min in, and when I got back, the computer was sitting waiting on a htfs error...

It's always best to get them in pairs, so if you're planning for 4GB, make sure you get 2 x 2GB. Otherwise you might get problems with compatibility.

that was longer than the 15 seconds that I mentioned earlier. But on another note, I further overclocked to 3.8ghz and nb freq to 2.6ghz, and the system didn't crash for ~6 hours... When I overclocked, I also adjusted nb voltage and sb voltage, and I think that might be what is increasing stability overall. by default, those are both at 1.1 volts, I looked at other forums, and it seems most other boards defaults are 1.2, so I figured I'd give that a shot... I'd like to be able to monitor my nb/sb temps though, but I don't know what to use to monitor that... any tips?

yeah im waiting until tax time and depending on how much i get back i'll see what ram i can get ideally i want to get 2x2gb match sticks 1600

so we'll see but i dont want to pay more than $220Aus

Yes i use Linx,but you dont need to run 12+ hours of it,do you know how much stress that would put on your system,a lot of people burn there systems out doing so.

I am only interested in what i can get out of my components for benching purposes,i would not be running at extreme clocks 24/7,it's what overclocking is all about.

Here I usually find a good overclocked setting that allows me to use it 24/7 without any issues. I don't see a reason to clock it high enough for me to run a 3dmark pass or some benchmark and see it in a miserable blue screen hours later due to instable settings.

I did a 12+ Linx test here and a 24h pass of prime95 blend before setting up the stable clocks for 24/7 usage, better be safe than sorry.

There's no way I can burn my system with it, all parts are under good temperatures even if I don't have your nice ambient temps

Sometimes I use the box to play Battlefield series games and they're a real nice stress test, so it's impossible to run a game like that on unstable RAM or processor for some hours.

Anyway, waiting for a good 1.11 MSI bios

How's the 1090T clocking ?
