Re: GA-EP45-DS3R & Kingston Hyperx T1- Can't get to 1066
Thanks for all of your help. I think I found the problem:
If I take the sticks out and place in Dimm slots 2 &4- I can boot upto 1066 very easy.
However, if I put in slots 1 & 3- I can't raise the voltage.
Given that my #3 stick went bad- is it possible that there was a surge, or short in dimm slot #3 that over volted the ram stick and cause it to go bad? and now I can't raise voltage?
If that is the case, would I be better off replacing with a new 775 mobo that uses DDR3 ram? The ddr2 stuff seems high in comparison.
