    Default Phenom Gigabyte Board and HyperX

    Kingston is GREAT memory!!!
    I bought 1 new memory kit back in 7/08 then 1 more new memory kit in 5/09 all suppose to be KHX8500D2K2/2GN

    When I installed the second kit I had voltage set on auto in Bios as it should be when installing new memory and it worked without any problems the Phenom CPU registers it and the memory voltage jumped from 1.8v@1.85v1.8v @1.85vto 1.9v@1.95v 1.9v 1.95v and everything seem to be fine. Windows starts up without any real noticeable issues. Then I decided to OC a little as I had before and boom unstable memory so I increased voltage and timings a little to account for it and it's OK Now system temps have increased to about average 46C and my timings are a little looser. Thats fine fans are running a little harder that's OK. I decided lets check this memory out a little more. I found this great little Utility THANKS to Gigabytes forum Mod LSDmeasap performing his bump routine http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/memo...vs-bios-27283/
    "again Thanks" called Memset 4.0 When I used it I found an issue with the memory being read as 2 different kits.

    By artdrivers at 2009-06-29 I thought this cant be right!? The TRFC timings were even different. I said thats not right so I restarted (DEL) into bios and CTRL + F1 to tweek the timings again and there I noticed the TRFC were different as well. So I called Kingston Tech support. They asked me to remove the memory and read the numbers on the stickers that are on the heatsinks. The same they are all the same. They said that the program is reading the chip on the memory,: The everything is OK deal. (Are they programmed to say this?) "You recon" I had to ask for level 2 support. They first advised me with the same answer the other level tech support had for me. Then I explained the different TRFC. He suggested I change the TRFC timings in bios. I had to really go into details about the Gigabyte board and Phenom CPU with it's memory support that will reset these timings on P.O.S.T. back to TRFC105ns on KHX8500D2/1GN set and 127ns on KHX8500D22/2GN set. He said it could be the Gigabyte board or Bios I explaned how I flashed the bios 4 times. I explained it was a GA-MA78GM-S2H with a Penom 9600. I explained then "why is it when I reverse the memory kits (swap slots it still shows the one kit KHX8500D2/1GN @ TRFC 105ns where ever I put it and KHX8500D22/2GN @ TRFC 127ns." I got 2 very good memory modules running at 105ns pc 1100, but 2 at 127ns. They then suggested I send all four modules to them for exchange and offered cross shipping which I jumped on. Due to compatibility issues I am returning very good memory. This is an issue not neccessarily a problem. We will see. This is what I thought I purchased to begin with. Maybe I'll get it this time "You Recon?"
