    Posts can be edited and deleted, maybe you want to join this one with some part of the pervious one and delete the previous one.
    Are thos your settings with or without the changes?
    What does BIOS or ET6 HWMonitor show for memory voltage?

    1.8v (this ram is rated 1.8v - 1.9v)

    With DRAM Voltage set to auto like in the template?
    Could you post a screen capture of MemSet main and spd(click spd) screens?

    Yeah, I tried the process Psycho101 recommends and still errors galore.

    Are the settings you have posted your current settings and with those settings HWMonitor shows 1.8v for the memory?
    And please post those screen captures.

    Will do. Gotta go to work now.

    I'll post detail and screen captures later today, but basically I tried setting the timings manually (5,5,5,15), tried Psycho's advanced timing suggestions, tried increasing MCH voltage in increments up to 1.4 (have not tried lowering the MCH), tried setting the DRAM voltage in increments up to 2.0 (which made me a bit nervous since the RAM is rated 1.8-1.9).

    I have already checked each stick and each slot pair separately and they check out fine.

    I'm currently back to using my system (got work to do) with two sticks in and optimized defaults loaded.

    As far as I know G.Skill isn't made in England. In my experience it's made in America you have to watch out for. It used to mean something of quality, but now, especially when it comes to tools, I would NEVER buy anything with the stars and stripes printed on it. Cheap monkey metal mainly. There's also a tendancy to "over egg" on the buzz words. "Team Extreem", "Patriot"? Sounds like a collection of super heroes, rather than a serious brand. It could be me being conservative, but that's the impression I get. Too much ego and not enough substance.


    From that template it seems that for some reason you've gone back to auto for loads of settings. The advanced timings would be best kept as I specified in my last post, as that way, they're so loose as to not be an issue. Also ICH core should be at 1.10V, 1.20V max, it's MCH that should be increased. In the template you posted it's on auto.

    In brief, advanced timings loose, SMM to what gives you 1066 at a 333 FSB and RAM volts to max (1.9V). From here adjust MCH core upward until 1.38V then choose the most stable MCH voltage and up Vdimm a little. 2.0V isn't extreme and may even be essential for 1066 with 8GB. The next step after all that would be to lower the SMM to 2.4B and give DDR-800 a go.

    It's PC-6400 memory.
