    Ahh well you may need to set 2.2V for your ram them with all 4 sticks.

    And sorry, I should have noticed this. You will need to use 4.00A not 4.00C, this would cause a non boot. Sorry!

    Yes, some settings do change others such as Vtt changes MCH Ref and Vdimm changes a few others, but you should have all those in auto anyway. Do not set things to what you see unless I mentioned it, leave them on auto

    K, did a full CMOS Reset, with battery out for 20 mins, then started with 1 stick and loaded optimized defaults. Then applied all settings as advised with the latest changes.

    PC now starts with 1 stick, I still get the beeps with all 4. I have risen the DRAM voltage to 2.2 and I am using 4.00A now.

    The default latencies detected are now : 5/7/7/24. I manually adjusted them to 5/5/5/18 as advised by you. (Manufacturer's default : 5/5/5/15).

    As I don't really know much about what all those values mean or do, I don't dare tinkering around too much with those voltages and other values, as I might fry something, so I'll rather have you take another guess about could cause this ..

    What is the full settings you are trying with all 4? Please post them exactly so we are sure. Template is in my signature for you to give me your settings, specs, and BIOS Version.

    I can advise you once you do

    I am using exactly those settings that you have told me to use. There are no exceptions anywhere. I adjusted all the values that changed (like the latencies) to what you've told me, too. I could post them here again, but it'd be an exact copy of what I posted earlier...

    Well I gave ranges on a few, that is why I need you to look and post for sure before I can advise.

    Thanks, sorry to sound like a broken record, but we always need the current failing settings again so we can see exactly what you tried. This is especially true after making suggestions as we often suggest ranges.

    Try this, first test slots 1+3 and then 2+4 to be sure both sets of slots work. Same settings for 1 stick should be ok for two, or use the following and that should be ok as well

    Do you plan to overlock? I ask because often times overclocking is actually easier to get going than stock.... Why? Not sure, but I know it to be true. So if you want to try, try out 333 FSB and use 2.40B here

    Ok, changed the settings again, this time with 800 MHz. I starts with 1 stick, and also with 2 sticks placed 1-3 or 2-4. Still getting the beeps with all 4 though.

    The CPU PLL value was not a typo. It's set to Auto, and Auto = 1.550 V.

    I am not trying to overclock. At this point, I'd just be glad to have my system running. Back when I bought this hardware, 1066 MHz was the highest you could get at a reasonable price, which is why I got these RAM. If I get them running on 800 MHz, that'd be just fine. Plus, the CPU's not 1333 MHz FSB compatible iirc.

    As for the voltages:

    CPU PLL value, you still have listed as 2.550V, if you are using 1.55 then ok. Just wondered since you listed 2.5 in the settings.

    That CPU will do 1333 FSB (333 FSB) easy, just FYI.

    So 3.00A did not boot either? Very well could be this memory is not compatible with this board, have you asked OCZ if they have tested it on this board?

    Alright, I'll try 333 FSB as soon as I get the time then. And I don't bother asking hardware manufacturers questions anymore. I've tried it various times, and IF you get any answer at all, it will be something like "try updating to the latest BIOS" or something, although you told them that you've done that already. I rather put my faith in forums like this where people actually bother. If I can't get this running like expected, I'll just stick with 2 GB and XP 32 for now. I'll report back for the 333 FSB thing though.
