Just because a motherboard supports pc3200 doesn't mean it will RUN at pc3200?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I purchases this POS from newegg.com

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813185062


And it "supports" pc3200 DDR400. Well my 512MB PC3200 DDR400 is runing at DDR333.

First off, the POS CPU fan is at 5000RPM when the temp is 23C
Second, the BIOS options only has the DRAM frequency options:

By SPD
CPU-100
CPU-66
CPU-33
CPU+0

This motherboard is crap, and I am very dissapointed so far. If this CPU fan is going to run at this insane speed I will refund this POS without a second thought! The case/PSU is a POS also and there is no dedicated CPU fan connector to control the CPU FAN RPM.

I'm venting right now. Words of wisdom, do NOT buy this crap...you have been warned.

That is the SIS chipset for you...very very basic. It is cheap and it works...just doesn't work well

If you want your memory to run DDR400 without OC'n, then set your DRAM config to "CPU+0". Try not to leave anything set to auto. But make sure you know what things you are changing...sorry about the board.
