if one set is erroring out, swap in one module, retest... basically see if you can isolate a defective stick!

Oh, that statement is not quite complete.
2x512 OC better than 2x1G but 2x1G OC better than 4x512s
Duke,

What does the IDE (SW) driver do and how do I uninstall it if I already downloaded it?

nForce IDE drivers should show up in the Add/Remove Programs. If you have no IDE HDDs it should be a nonissue.

First make sure that everything runs smooth on stock speeds/settings (Prime95, memtest, the whole thing). The just start cranking up your FSB step by step. The RAM won't be on spec until you hit an FSB of 250MHz.

On a sidenote: Duke, what timings do you have on those G.Skills (sorry for the partial hijack )

Oh, so if I have Sata connections you are saying the IDE is not needed?

Thanks Duke!

So you are saying dont even worry about unistalling them if I dont have IDE harddrives? I looked and all I see in add/remove programs is Nvidia Drivers. What would your suggestion be?

Thanks Duke!

Ok, got the 2 x 1g modules today


But when I run memtest I still get memory errors. What should be my timings for these units? The same settings in the bios as the 4 x 512 modules?

Try 'auto' settings in BIOS. Or, check the SPD tab in CPU-Z what the default timings are at different speeds (sometimes only reports one speed) and use those to begin with. Generally, larger modules have somewhat looser timings.

Good luck

Thanks Chozart!

Ok I got CPU-Z downloaded , cool program by the way!

Went in and it is showing the following:

Freq: 250

Cas: 3

Ras to Cas (TRCD) 4

Ras Precharge (TRP) 4

Tras 10

Trc 12

Dram Idle Timer 16

2T



So I set all of the following in the Bios to those settings and put VCORE voltage at 2.85

The only setting I couldnt find is the Dram Idle Timer to set at 16?

What do you think?

Your motherboard doesn't have a setting that has it configure RAM timings itself? Those timings will definately work. HOwever, you should set your RAM speed (Freq) on 200. The FSB at stock is 200, and if you set RAM at 200 also, you run a 1:1 divider. Then, when you start overclocking, the RAM speed will increase togehter with the FSB (you can check the actual speed under the memory tab of CPU-Z). Running RAM at 250 results in a 4:5 divider (CPU:RAM), which does not add any (or very little) performance, since RAM can only handle instructions as fast as the CPU can deliver them.

The timings CPU-Z gives you (I hoped it would also give you timings at 200...) are somewhat loose. Use these for now and make sure all is stable (run everything at stock). If you get memtest to pass, then tighten the timings. That RAM should be easily able to do 2.5/3/3/6 (Cas/TRCD/TP/Tras) at stock speeds (i.e. 200). Again, test thoroughly, making sure memtest passes. The start overclocking step by step, etc. If you think RAM holds you back, loosen timings again, etc.

My G.Skill reports 3/5/5/10 at 250 and runs automatically at 2.5/3/3/6 at 200.

Gotcha!

How do you get it to run the setting auto? You mean set them to auto and see what it sets them at?
