    Sorry I could not help you more, but without being there it is hard to try many things that I could in person.

    You could ask SVCglobal to come in and give you his thoughts on this, he uses this ram so he could tell you more directly how he got his going. Drop him a PM >>>

    Good luck with things

    I'm sorry, but I have one last question:
    What brands that come in 2x2GB sets do you recommend and what brands do you strongly suggest against buying? It doesn't matter if it's DDR3 or DDR2 to me.

    Mushkin (XP-Black Models High end, or HP- Blue models Mid range) is my top suggested brand for Gigabyte boards.

    After that would be G.Skills (Models ending in K are the best, Q second best)

    They both offer DDR2 and DDR3 in 2x2GB kits, If you live in the US or CA I suggest Newegg as a shopping place

    I've also have problems with my computer, I have exactly same motherboard and memory. But my computer just freezes randomly. Not so bad that I can't boot.


    I'm a bit afraid of changing this options in bios that you have posted. Or there are nothing to be afraid of? Right now I have everything on "Auto"

    VERY Thankful for replies/pm/answers/tips

    Yes, anything I suggest is safe. I do not suggest outside of safe ranges unless a user specifically asks and knows the consequences.

    Memory settings are safe always, they will just work or not. Voltages are what you need to worry about, but again I only suggest safe voltages but do keep a eye on your temps as you adjust any voltages

    If you do need some help, please let me know your full specs and what you have tried from this thread.

    Okej thanks for the reply!

    Now I wanna know what settings it should be runned on to work 100% properly


    Right now my settings are to Auto and I really need help to change the settings in bios. My bios says my memories runs in 1066 mhz when they are suppoesed to be runned in 1600 mhz. I have tried some things to change this but it can't find it out.
    I need a "guide" or something to find this out :P

    I havn't changed anything so it should be looked like that
    ////--------------------------------------------------------------------
    i've heard that I have to clock to get 1600mhz :(, but can I run the memory in 1066 and don't get the f0kking freezes with some easy settings? I don't care if I'm running the memory in 1066 or 1600. I'll be happy just to get my computer working properly without system freezes
