LOL. glad you got it working... but too bad you can't make a FAQ to help others w/ similar problems... "I changed the BIOS... then I messed w/ some stuff... then it worked... magic!"

You have a 120 over your RAM? Your case has room for that? Or are you running this commando style ...

I thought the general rule was this memory worked best at 2.5-2.6 volts?

I got mine running at 250...I can run stable at 260 on every thing save for playing oblivion. I have 2.5 volts at 3-4-4-8 2T on a 1:1

originally I had hoped for 270...but 265 is my error free max

I never could get it stable at any speed in 1T...but my mother board doesn't have all the settings that a DFI board has. DFI board will come with my next CPU upgrade.

and I like my ram cooling setup...I have a 40mm fan on each end of the ram sticks. one pushing, one pulling. I modified the clips off of an old ram heat spreader so I could hook the little fans on and it then clamps on to the end of the ram sticks cause a little air flow channel between the sticks. worked even better back when I had 4 sticks of 512.

try and see if your mobo has any of these settings:

2.5-2.7V; HTT=3; FSB=250
Dram Frequency Set: 200 (1:1)
Command Per Clock: Enable (1t)
Cas: 3
Trcd: 4
Tras: 8
Trp: 4~3
Trc: 7
Trfc: 13~18
Trrd: 2
Ter: 2
Twtr: 1~2
Trwt: 2~3
Tref: 3684
Twcl: 1
Dram Bank Interleave: Enable

Dqs Skew Control: Auto
Dqs Skew Value: 0
Dram Drive Strength: 7 (or Best Value For Your System)
Darm Date Drive Strength: 3 (or Best Value For Your System)
Max Async Latency: 7~8ns
Darm Response: Normal
Read Preamble Time: 5ns
Idlecycle Limit: 256
Dynamic Counter: Enable
R/w Queue Bypass:16
Bypass Max: 7
32 Byte Granularity: Disable

then try going past 250 in 1t . of course mine isnt exactly that...i honestly dont care about benchmark stable, heck if i can play a game for a while and not crash im good.
