This is the best OC with Stability I've gotten so far... here are the numbers I'm running:

FSB [254]

CPU @ 1.497~1.4875V (CPU Voltage ~ CPU VDD Voltage)
CPU-NB 2540MHz @ 1.497~1.4875V
CPU DDR-PHY 1.500V (This need to be this high???)
DRAM ratio 1:3.33 1693MHz Timings 7-7-7-21 [2T] @ 1.65V (2T when tested, currently 1T). Going to Memtest86+ tonight.

Thanks eclipse, I will check this out.

Hope thats better, not sure how to get it larger than this. Here's the link to Flickr where its posted http://www.flickr.com/photos/4330848...02629/sizes/l/

Because of cost, I went with 6 GB instead of 8 not knowing that my amd system needs to run memory in dual mode for the performance. So right now I just have two stick in my machine. But I can't get my memory running at 8-8-8-24. I have went into the bios and changed the settings. I have updated to 1.63. I have done some searching on the forums, and I think I have done things correctly, but clearly I'm making a mistake somewhere along the line.

So couple questions.
1. Will it hurt my system performance to have all 3 sticks in the machine?
2. What specific things in the bios do I need to change to get my memory running? I have changed fsb/dram ration from auto to 1:4 and the adjusted DRAM Frequency says 1600.

and under dram timing mode I set it to

cas latency (cl) 8 clk
tRCD 8clk
tRP 8clk
tRAS 24clk

the rest i left on auto... do i need to change them?

3. I don't want to return the memory, so should I buy 3 more stick, use one and sell the other two on ebay? or should I buy 2 sticks of the memory and try to sell one stick?

Thanks for your help.

It wont hurt your system, but its wont be as fast.

Its just like running a marathon, would you rather run it in nikes (dual channel) or a pair of thongs (single channel, and thongs in australia aren't underwear!)

Thats pretty depressing. I vote eclipse too!

On a happier note, i received my GD-70 in the mail today Just waiting for my memory and it will be up and running!

I would try changing your ratio to a 1:3.33 and put all three sticks in, I don't think this will hurt your preformance even though it's dual channel. Try loosening your timings to 9-9-9-27 and then OC memory slowly up to 1600. If your timmings are set to work at 1.65V, make sure you set your DRAM voltages to 1.65 manually. This board keeps the voltage at defualt (1033 voltage, whatever that is). Start lowering your CAS times one at a time and run Memtest86+ v4.0 (ISO) for a couple of passes to check for errors, and then do it all over again to find stability. Hope that helps.

First thing, goto your User CP (link in menu accross the top) then on the left side you will see 'Add System'. In there put in your specs of your system so that it is easier to see what componenets you have which will help us better help you.

Now onto the question at hand. What bios do you have for the board? I know that running 1600 on some bios versions will cause instability if it will boot at all, but usually CL8 works ok.

From my personal experience, I have had no issues running all 8GB's of ram @ Rated specs. (1600, 9-9-9-28-1t @ 1.5v) link In fact I have been able to run them @ 1600 9-9-9-21-1t @1.5v( I am not very good at mem OC'in) I am running the 1.54b bios and have had no stability issues what so ever.

The first thing I would do is check to see that you are running at the correct voltage. Then if that does not work I would run memtest86 @ specified settings. If it does not pass I would return the memory and find something better.
