    Default Gigabyte Motherboard Ram Problem?

    Hello All, I Have A Gigabyte Motherboard, Model Number N650sli-DS4L. I Used To Have 4gb Of DDR2 800Mhz Ram, But Now I Upgraded To 8gb Of Same Ram. And When I Installed 8gb Of Ram, The Computer Turned On But Froze On Boot, Then Restarted, Then Sometimes Got The Blue Screen, But Never Went Into Windows. But When I Took Out 1 Stick, Soo It Would Be 6gb And It Works Great With 6gb Of Ram, I Know Its Not The Ram Because I Tried Different Sticks, Different Slots, And Same Thing Happened. And Iam Currently Runing Windows Xp Proffesional 64-bit. Can Someone Please Help Me Out!!!

    Thank You!!

    Welcome to the forum.

    With 8GB of memory, you will need to increase:
    NB/HT-Link Voltage
    Allows you to to set North Bridge voltage.
    Normal Supplies the North Bridge voltage as required. (Default)
    +0.05~0.35 Increases the North Bridge voltage by 0.05V to 0.35V at 0.05V increment.

    You will probably only need to use +0.05 or up to +0.15 with 8GB of ram.

    If you are overclocking, you might need to increase:
    FSB Voltage
    Allows you to set the Front Side Bus voltage.
    Normal Supplies the FSB voltage as required. (Default)
    +0.05V ~ +0.35V Increases FSB voltage by 0.05V to 0.35V at 0.05V increment.

    My N650SLI-DS4 had a terrible FSB wall where you couldn't use Cpu Host Frequency from about 378MHz to 420MHz.
    Before my first one ate its bios, I had it overclocked to 489MHz.
    The replacement N650-SLI-DS4 was a terrible overclocker that wasn't stable above 434MHz and in later years it was limited to 367MHz.

    I hope that you have better luck with your motherboard.
