    I haven't attempted it in a month or so. So will have to gather some info on what settings i tried out again.

    BIOS is the most up to date. Will find out exactly what it is though.

    Your BIOS version is displayed on the Motherboard Tab of CPU-Z.

    If u need to, download CPU-Z from: CPUID

    Ya, I would like to see your overclock settings if that is what you want help with.

    And I MUST advise you that running 8GB is already hard on a P35 chipset, mixing ram chips makes things even worse and you may not ever find a good stable point.

    Let me have your settings and thought and I will advise back

    BIOS Profiles can be a lifesaver, and sanity saver. Always take advantage of them, F11 on the MAIN page of the BIOS is save, and F12 is load

    Hi,
    Have been able to overclock my system without a probem (333FSBx9Multiplyer = 3Ghz) but have just installed the following RAM
    KHX8500D2K2/4G - Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 HyperX Memory CL5 2.2V - Ebuyer

    My problem is that I can only run at 800Mhz even after changing the BIOS to the right settings of 5/5/5/15 2.2v orig 5/5/5/18 1.8v

    Win XP Hme see's 3.5Gb which I knew BUT was hopping to have 1066Mhz NOT 800Mhz!

    Have posted in Kingston forum too but trying everywhere I can to try and Find a away to get my RAM working as it says on the tin.

    Thanks,
    Shaun

    According to that link... it's better to rely on Specs from the Manufacturer's product page ... your RAM needs 2.2v and not the default 1.8v.

    1.8v=800MHz

    2.2v=1066MHz

    But remember to double check at Manufacturer's page.

    Hi,
    I've gone to BIOS and Set the Voltage and Timings as told by Kingston & Ebuyer:

    DDR2 Over Voltage +0.4v
    CAS Latency Time - 5
    DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay - 5
    DRAM RAS# Precharge - 5
    Precharge Delay - 15

    So, Voltage and Timing set as explained RAM should be running at 1066Mhz. I can't get it above 800Mhz. Kingston say it's the Mobo, Gigabyte will probbably point to RAM, so I'll keep going round and round in circles. Very frustrating, I'm sure that I've missed something but after changing BIOS as Kingston suggested I thought that would be the end.

    Don't really want to return the RAM, NEVER had a problem before with RAM unless it was dead.

    Hope you have other thought's????

    Shaun

    Well, with RAM prices down more than 90% compared to three to four years ago (Speed and Capacity wise included), there's no reason not to buy new RAM.

    Just start a thread and find out which Make and Model that ppl with ur mobo have had the greatest success with. ( Should be interesting too.)

    And the existing Kingston RAM you have is not a complete waste in any way. Because so much of the time ppl don't have "other" RAM around that has been proven to work (800MHz wise) for diagnostic purposes.

    Before I realized I needed 4 GB RAM versus 2 GB RAM in order to play Video games on Vista, I bought a 2 GB (1200MHz)Transcend kit of RAM about 18 months ago. It cost a freaking $179+ but I used it for over three weeks and if there is ever a need to question my existing RAM I can always pop it in. And its the only other DDR2 I have.

    Other than my backup DDR2 RAM, my backup PSU, idt there's anything better to have contingency wise. (Well, I have another PC next to this one for running office applications and Media Center too.)

    (Just be thankful you got 4 GB kit of Kingston and not just 2 GB.)

    See if raising the MCH voltage improves the situation any. Also test one stick at a time using memtest at 1066. You may have a bad stick.
