man it's such smooth sailing now. this computer has never ran so good!!!

running the memory at 1333 7-7-7-24-2T no problems at all as far as i can tell. thanks again xd_1771 and winginit.

but i'm a bit concerned about temps... mainboard hit a high of 81C and primary video card hit high of 89C!!! secondary video card hit high of 70C. i think primary video card is getting so hot because of the lack of space between it and the secondary video card. frown.gif

besides that i'm loving this BIOSTAR mobo. it would be even better if the PCI-e slots were more spaced out and the chipset didn't get so hot!

ok apparently the mainboard temp i was referring to is just a Windows readout error as explained here: http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherboards/789460-biostar-ta890fxe-crazy-temperature.html

also my secondary video card has much more breathing room under its fans than the primary card so in BIOS i changed the secondary video card to primary and plugged my monitor into it instead which seems to have lowered the temp on the other video card by about 5C, so now it's maxing out at about 84C instead of 89C. better but still far from ideal.

ok not so fast!

game has been freezing up after playing for a while, maybe 1-3 hours. i'm able to ctrl-alt-del and end task on the game when it happens.

just as a test i shut down, pulled out 2x2GB memory (kit) so only 2x2GB (also kit) were installed. set to rated 1600 9-9-9-24-2T. booted into Windows, loaded game, and while loading the map my monitor showed black screen with a bunch of crazy colors everywhere and computer locked up.

shut down, swapped out the installed 2x2GB kit for the other 2x2GB kit i took out earlier. left at 1600 9-9-9-24-2T and again locked up with black screen + crazy colors while loading map.

shouldn't i be able to run 2x2GB @ 1600 9-9-9-24-2T with C2 revision? seems crazy that i'm more stable with 4x2GB @ 1600 9-9-9-24-2T (and 1333 7-7-7-24-2T) than 2x2GB... i mean at least i can play the game for a while with 4x2GB. what's going on here??

i'd prefer to run 4x2GB @ whatever speed/timings since i already own the memory but so far that setup hasn't been stable enough. i'd be fine with 2x2GB @ whatever speed/timings if i could get it more stable than 4x2GB but oddly enough 4x2GB has been more stable than 2x2GB! as a last resort i might just buy a new 2x4GB kit.

but first, should i change any of these settings in BIOS?

T-Series > DRAM Timing Configuration > Memory Configuration:
Bank Interleaving (Auto) Disabled
Channel Interleaving (XOR of Address bits [20:16, 6]) Disabled, Address bits 6, Address bits 12, XOR of Address bits [20:16, 9]
MemClk Tristate C3/ATLVID (Disabled) Enabled
Memory Hole Remapping (Enabled) Disabled
DCT Unganged Mode (Always) Auto

options in (parenthesis) are defaults/current settings.

please help me out this problem is making me go insane. i'm not even overclocking and yet i'm having all these lag/freeze/lockup probs @ stock settings. i keep pouring replacement parts money and time into this machine in hopes that i'll just be able to play my game but i can't ever get ahead of this problem!

as a reminder i just replaced a msi mobo that died with this BIOSTAR TA890FXE. similar problems were happening before the msi mobo died.

thanks!

Well 1600 RAM speed is overclocked on an AMD system. 1333 is stock speed. It depends on the RAM though, are those Ripjaws rated for 1.65 volts or 1.50 volts at 1600?

If you have a fan at the back of your case that blows out, I would turn it sideways to blow directly onto the mosfets and North Bridge, use a zip tie, that's what I did and my system temps have dropped. It may well be 28 °C or so at boot but during gaming and such it will climb up to 60 °C and this will create a lot of heat around your CPU and graphics card.

Here's a pic of my fan mount
