    Default gaep43ds3l+gskill fs-pc8800cl5d, need help getting the memos to 1066

    My specs:
    Mobo: Ga-ep43-ds3l bios : f8
    Cpu: E4500 (c2d 2.2) (OC 2.9)

    vga: HD4870 1gb
    psu: akasa power green 500w
    mem: g.skill f2-8800cl5d-4gbpi Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1100 (PC2 8800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8800CL5D-4GBPI - Desktop Memory

    memtest: @800mhz no errors


    Hey guys i cant get my memory to work at the rated speed when i set the mem frenquency to something arround 940 my comp double boots and the frequency goes back to 800
    I messed arround with the bios all day but i had no luck at all

    it would be great if anyone could provide to me the correct settings to run mem 1066,cpu 2.8-2.9

    Follow steps 1 - 4 in this post to provide full hardware info and to post your current bios settings.

    Did you load optimized bios settings before you made your bios changes?

    Fail Safe bios settings should be avoided.
    A better name for this "feature" would be Guaranteed Bios Problems.

    Leave your clock drive clock settings at the optimized defaults (800/800) for your mobo. The 800/900 settings are for the ep45 mobos.

    MCH Core = 1.20 - 1.24 is usually required with 2x2GB of 1066 memory at stock settings.
    Many G.Skill setups have problems with these settings and run best with MCH Core = 0.95 volts or a bit higher.
    The SPD for your 8800 memory shows that 1.90 volts is required at 1066 speeds.
    With 266MHz, Static tRead Value = 6 or 5 should be stable, lower is better.
    Try the following with 266x11:

    CPU Clock Drive ---------------------- : [800]
    PCI Express Clock Drive --------------- : [800]

    (G)MCH Frequency Latch ------------- : [266mhz]
    System Memory Multiplier ------------- : [4.0A]

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD -------------------- 4 ----------- : [AUTO] <-- just for now
    tWTR ------------------- 4 ----------- : [AUTO] <-- just for now
    tWR -------------------- 8 ----------- : [AUTO] <-- just for now
    tRFC ------------------ 68 ----------- : [AUTO] <-- just for now
    tRTP ------------------- 4 ------------ : [AUTO] <-- just for now
    Command Rate (CMD) ----0 ------------: [2]

    Driving Strength ----------------------- : [AUTO] <-- 1066, OC1200, or 800 can be tried later (for memory channels A & B)

    Static tRead Value ------- 3 ----------- : [6] <-- just for now, 5 can be tried later (for memory channels A & B)

    CPU Vcore -------------- 1.200 -------- : [1.20000] <-- try 1 or 2 clicks higher

    CPU Termination --------- 1.200V ------- : [1.20]
    CPU PLL ----------------- 1.550V* ----- : [1.55]

    CPU Reference ----------- 0.805V* ----- : [0.805] <-- AUTO is OK

    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core ---------------- 1.100V ------- : [1.2] <--- try lower settings
    ICH I/O ----------------- 1.550V ------- : [1.55]

    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ------------ 1.800V ------- : [1.800] <--- 1.90 will probably be required with the new settings (try both)

    okz ill give that settings a try
    but i guess ill have to rma it, my pc rebooted 3 times already while i was playing
    dragon age a messed up screen showed up then the computer shut down.Im sure it is memory's fault

    btw thx

    edit: 1.9v doesnt really work it causes double boot even at 800mhz

    Have you done any stability testing using Memtest86+, Prime95, or Intel BurnTest with 800MHz memory speeds?

    It's possible that you have a defective memory module. Try swapping the memory positions.

    Can you borrow a similar memory kit to test with?
    Which MCH Core voltage settings did you try?
