    Default GA-EP45-DS3R + Gskill F2-8800CL5D-4GBPI

    Hello guys<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    My first post here :D<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I m trying to make a new configuration for a new pc.<o:p></o:p>
    My first mobo+ram combo was GA-EP45-DS3R + Gskill F2-8800CL5D-4GBPI (1100 Mhz, 1.8 ~ 1.9 Volts (low voltage) )<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Now i have some questions<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    1º can i use 1.9 volts without any problem? i read ppl that having problems with that voltage and they use 2.1 or 2.3 to make system stable.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    2º any user on this forum with my configuration? if yes, pls tell me your bios settings for this Ram<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    3º what is your 2x2gb ram advice for this Mainboard around 1066/1100 Mhz (ddr2)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Thanks all for the future answers :D<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    And sorry for my English<o:p></o:p>

    Yes, you can use 1.9. People you see using 2.1 or more is just because they are either trying a high overclock on their ram, or their ram specs is 2.1 or so. Even if your ram is rated at 1.9, you can use 2.0 or so and still be within your warranty, but it is not likely needed at all. I would think the most you would need would be 1.9-2.0

    I can help you with settings once you get going, just let me know. I dont think anyone has posted with those new PQI G.Skills but plenty of posts here for 8500 G.Skills

    For 2x2GB you will need to for sure set MCH voltage to 1325-1.3, set trfc to 52-62 and manually set ram voltages.

    Yes, you can use that ram for sure. If you can find Mushkins (Black or Blue) where you live, they would be better I think. But yes those will for sure work in your board

    Well,
    this time already bought my RAM.

    Gskill F2 - 8500CL5D - 4GB PK

    and i m very disappointed with it, cant start my system... all config i do on bios give me BSD, freezes, etc...

    After testing separate ram modules with Memtest, really strange thing happen, 1 of the modules pass without errors and the other one give me 1 error at the beginning.
    I tested the ram on other Motherboard and all tests pass without errors.

    Is this possible? only 1 ram modulo giving error? they not suppose to be equal?

    Anyway, i m out of ideas, i tried all basic configurations on bios (F10), but still have 1 error always at same modulo and same position.

    Can bad bios config do this ?

    Tkz LSD :D~

    If you stick gives you errors then it may be DOA and you will need to RMA the pair.

    As for getting them all going at once you may need to set several things first in the BIOS for 4GB.

    But if you do have one stick that errors in the same spot, no matter what slot it is in then you should return it for sure as it is dying.

    Let me know what you decide

    I have exchange the malfunction Gksill for the 2x2GB OCZ PC2-8500 P10664GK (the only ones that they had in the shop for delivery).
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I manually set the Voltage to 2,15V and the timings 5-5-5-18 and everything went well, I didn’t get any error in memtest.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    The problem is when I tried to overclock the CPU the computer gets very unstable.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Even if I configure the memory’s to work like an 800MHz memory I get the same problems.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    After this I put some Corsair XMS6404V2.1 and I manage to get 9x400MHz on my E8400 9x333 without any problems.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Is any way to configure the bios in order be able to do overclock the CPU with this OCZ memory?

    Just confirm one thing the configurations that you had send are for the OCZ 2x2GB PC2-8500 P10664GK.


    Thanks.
