    I removed the two dimms (in case the motherboard doesnt like 4 occupied slots) .. same problems..

    I installed two other memory sticks (667mhz) and checking right now!

    With the new modules (Kingston 667Mhz 2x1G 5-5-5-15 1.8V.) the PC is very stable (working for 12 hours now without an error). I ran OCCT Large Data Set for 12 hours ERROR-Free !!! BUT...

    When I try to run Prime95, the system freezes. I have lost my temper with this PC... 'm thinking of RMAing this motherboard and exchange it with an ASUS motherboard... really.. I dont know what else can I do..

    Based on your bios settings in post #34, change the following:

    CPU Clock Ratio ......................: [7.5x] <--- set this to 7.0

    CPU Termination........1.200V.........: [Auto] <--- set to the value displayed to the left in your bios
    CPU PLL...................1.500V.........: [Auto] <--- set to the value displayed to the left in your bios

    When you're testing with the 2x1GB Kingston memory, the dram voltage and MCH Core voltage should be changed, probably to:

    MCH Core...............1.100V.........: [1.26v] <--- 1.20 or possibly lower

    >>> DRAM
    DRAM Voltage...........1.800V.........: [2.200v] <--- set to the ram's maximum rated voltage

    Your video card should be fine as it doesn't draw a lot of power the way a high end card would.

    I'll try and let you know..

    Thank you very much.

    UPDATE :


    Testing from yesterday . NO PROBLEM with the other memory modules. (667mhz kingston)

    I think I'm gonna sell my Crucial Ballistix sticks to get another two pairs of memory (of other company..)

    Just RMA your Crucials for the new 2.0V rated ones. They work much better, likely your 2.2V ones are going bad or are not fully compatible with your board is all.

    They have a lifetime warranty, and they will send you the new ones anyway if you RMA so you might as well send them off. Let me know if you need help finding the page for RMA there

    The first time I asked them about this, they said no, they would not replace them with the 2V parts. But then I told them sometime later that my PC would no longer boot with the first pair and fails memory tests with the second most recent pair (both pairs are 2.2V 1066Mhz), giving the impression that at one time they did work (they never worked). They probably developed heat problems after a few months at 2.2V in my other Abit board.

    Anyways, I just got the new 2V modules in today and put all four 1GByte parts in. I also added a GEIL memory module fan on top to keep them cool. The PC booted right up and at 1066 MHz using EPP #2. Running fine so far. Next test is booting from a cold boot. Will let you know how that goes.

    Thanks to all for pointing me in the right direction!

    Yep. Replacing my 2.2V Ballistix sticks with the newer 2.0V sticks (4 x 1GB PC-8500) did the trick. I no longer have to keep my PC in standby mode in order to avoid the endless reboot/reset cycles. I can now shut it down overnight and start it back up again the next evening without any problems. And it runs at 1066MHz using 5-5-5-15 timing.

    Nice to see your RMA went thru without a hitch! I think maybe you just mentioned things wrong to them the first time, or spoke with the wrong person, as they will change them out for you to the new models as you see. I don't see why any of them would tell you no anyway as the older 2.2V models are more expensive and use more actual chips so they would lose money in telling people no anyway.

    Nice to hear you are back in business, if you need any help with things let me know

    Hello all!

    I replaced the Crucial Ballistix sticks (4X1GB) with the Kingston 800mhz 4x1GB that I had in my HTPC rig (with ASUS M3N78-EM board) .. Everything works ok. My server is working without a problem with the Kingstons and the HTPC seems to have no problem with the problematic (with EP45-UD3P board) Ballistix. They both work fine. So I guess I will sitck with this solution.. I think RMA my Crucial Ballistix would be a long road problem..

    Thanks for everything mates!
