Help with RAM/MOBO Problem Needed

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I don't know if this is a mobo or ram problem so I stuck it here. I picked up a matching pair of the memory in my specs to bring me to 2 gigs (4x512) Both sets will run fine by themselfs but together they will only run @ pc2700 speeds. If I set them to PC 3200 and run memtest I get errors on test #4 and when I tried to install speedfan last night with all stick in @ 3200 it shut me system down and I have to repair my o/s to get back in to windows. Does anyone know why I can not run both sets of memory? Also should I scrap my plans of having 2 gigs of memory and exchange my new Corsair set for some muskin redline? Thanks all.

When using all 4 dimms on the mobo, the ram defaults to PC2700. You SHOULD be able to run PC3200, but may have to check for 2T timing, and possibly loosen up the timings (and make sure all the sticks can run the same timings).

It makes more sense to run 2x1gig rather than 4x512

I was afraid of that. Both sets of RAM are the same. I guess i'll be going with the muskin then. Thanks Xavier!
