    hi
    I would like to know which RAM I need to buy to run all 8 GB on MA790X-UD4P in (64bit). I reviewed the supported Memory list for this motherboard and then purchased 8GB "100$" of G.Skill F28500CL5D 2GB X 2 (four sticks 2 GB each) I know that its rated 1066 and at 5 5 5 15 so I tried just 2 sticks at 64 bit 1066 and nothing. 64 bit wont even boot with 2 sticks at 800Mhz. I would like to try it at 5 7 7 20 but when you drop down to 800 Mhz the options for 7T disappears and timings go to 3 4 5 6.

    Settings are as suggested by G.Skill they have great customer support!
    DDR2 Voltage Control 2.1
    Northbridge Volt Control 1.4 (for stability tried with and without)
    Memory Clock x5.33
    5T 5T 5T 5T 15
    with 4 GB this setting works great but thats with 32 bit and at 4GB. I need 64 bit 8GB.

    For 800 Mhz. I tried the same just dropped the Mem Clock to 800Mhz, DDR2 2.1 and tried with and without Northbridge setting 1.4
    still not working. It will boot but it won't go past the Gigabyte Post screen.

    Mem test shows all four are good and I'm not going to send them back saying they are defective so now I'm stuck with 100$ of this after reading the "Recommended Memory"

    Are you raising your tRFC as well? If not, you will need to for 4-8GB, try 195ns then 327

    And yes, you will likely have to run them at 800-900 or so when you use all 8GB

    Its a nogo on both of those tRFC settings at 800 and 900 Mhz. It may be something inbetween. I can post to the Gigabyte screen but it wont go past that. Is there "any" kit that has been proven to work 8GB on this board with AMD at 64 bit. I'm not really going to use all 8GB maybe 6 at most but the whole thing that gets to me is looking at two empty slots and knowing that I should be able to get 8GB into this board in a 64Bit O.S. MA790X-UD4P. I noticed your post about Mushkin RAM so I contacted them and maybe they have something that works. Mushkin says they are trying to find an answer G.Skill says 8Gb is too much for this board and overloads it. I think that nobody knows what they are doing and the receptionist at Gigabyte is running 8GB on this board right now.

    Hey techaddict
    Is there a different utility that I can use to verify the voltage settings on the memory, CPU, etc.?

    Here is a easy download program to show your memory voltage, and other settings for Windows. In some cases memory voltage will be recognized as vin1.
    This is not cpuz it is hardware moniter
    CPUID

    I am not sure really, have you tried any off the QVL? I can say, I don't understand why you are having such issues with 8GB as long as you are underclocking it. Maybe you have some other setting off or something?

    I dont have an AMD Template, but can you post me all the settings you are trying when you try 800-900 and I will see if I see anything out of the ordinary. And also please include a screenshot of Memset running with any settings you can boot with

    I am trying to install a radeon HD 2600 Pro video card on my GA-MA74GM-S2(rev. 2.0) motherboard but when I boot it up, nothing displays. I have tried the card on a different machine and it works fine but it wont work on this one. I have a geforce 7200gs that works in the slot. Any help?

    rushjet06 I can try to help you will want to uninstall your video drivers and software first. Go to add and remove programs. Uninstall Geforce/nvidia software when ask to shut down no. Be sure you click on the ati software uninstaller if it is present and uninstall that software as well. It may give you the option to leave your chipset software that is fine. Now it will ask you if you want to shut down click yes. When the sytem restarts and beeps and you see the memory click delete several times to go into your bios. Go into your advanced bios features and set the init display first on PEG That is for PCIE click esc y for save settings and reboot. Shut off the computer remove the power chord and Geforce card and install the ATI card and plug the power chord back in and turn it on. Now you should go into Windows but you will need to install the HD2600 driver software. It is best to download that software driver package from your ATI Radeon card manufacturer. Read page 40 in your manual. http://china.giga-byte.com/FileList/...4gm_v2.0_e.pdf

    How would I get into windows with the Ati card in there? It shows no video, not even the boot screen.

    I have tried disabling the onboard video and it gives me the beep code for no video(only on the ati card). I know it isn't drivers becuase it has no video before it even makes it to windows to load drivers. I can remove drivers from the equasion(run it barebones with no harddrives) and it still wont show anything.

    rushjet06 Your BIOS may be set up for onboard graphics. OK well leave the 7200 in and go into your bios and set it to PEG first then save and reboot and unistall all graphics drivers and software. shut down unplug and change cards. If it wont display on the card it probably will on the onboard connector. If it does display on the onboard connector you need to disable the onboard in bios. But you must uninstall all the graphics software and drivers in windows before installing the new card, or you may find yourself installing windows again.
