    Default GA-P35-S3g compatible with Corsair Dominator

    As the title says I'm having troubles with my corsair dominator RAM working with my p35 mobo. I use four 1GB sticks at 1066 MHz and with anything over 2 sticks the PC blue screens.

    It turns out 1 of my RAM sticks are faulty, but surely I'd be ok trying to run with 3GB RAM? I bought 2 identical packs of the same RAM so.

    Just to add, Ive tried lots of different settings with my RAM, the 2 sticks of RAM works with 1066MHz, 5-7-7-24 timings and voltages set to auto.

    Ive tried 800MHz, 667MHz, 5-5-5-15 timings, over volting 2 sticks of RAM by 0.1 volts, and the blue screens persist, with no message at the top of the blue screen.

    I got 3 sticks of RAM working for a few days, but with the settings set to auto, then after a few days the screen froze and mouse/keyboard turned off. I'd like to add that when trying to run 3 sticks of RAM the screen will freeze and mouse/keyboard will turn off as early as when the gigabyte logo screen is displayed.

    Thanks for reading, i'll happily post more details if needed, although I'm pretty new to all of this :p

    If your running WinXP you only need 2GB. And in order to take advanyage of Dual Channel Mode you must have two or four. So, start useing just two 1GB sticks if you have WinXP. As far as the correct voltage to set RAM, you should post a link to the exact specs.

    Default Re: GA-P35-S3g compatible with Corsair Dominator

    Damn i'm sorry, forgot to say that I'm on Vista 64bit.

    Regarding current specs of the RAM atm, here they are according to CPU-Z

    type: DDR2
    size: 2048
    channels: dual
    DC mode: symmetric

    DRAM frequency: 533.4MHz
    FSB: DRAM : 5:8
    CAS latency: 5.0 clocks
    RAS to CAS delay: 7 clocks
    RAS precharge: 7 clocks
    Cycle time: 24 clocks

    Command Rate: 2T

    Also the SPD(?) i think thats the name, is 1066MHz, which is whats written on the RAM sticks so.

    I think I will just purchase two 2GB RAM sticks and call it there, but untill then surely using 3 sticks would be fine?(better than 2GB dual-channel?) 2GB of RAM on 64bit is pretty bad :p

    Anyway I'm going to lookup some 2GB RAM stick packs that are compatible with my Mobo, if anyone knows I'd be greatful to hear :)

    Thanks again
