    Latest bios..:?:

    I seriously doubt the problem is caused by heat. That mem has cooling plates on it no matter the brand.

    :cheers:

    When I first put this comp together I tried using PC1066 RAM, except windows always crashed during the installation. ONce I replaced it with PC800 I haven't had any problems since, so unfortunately it might be ur mobo :thumbs do

    I was kind of in your spot a while back. Check my sig for my specs. When I first got my comp, I had two 128MB modules of PC800 RDRAM (256MB total). I wanted to upgrade to 512MB of PC1066, but no dice, the tech I was talking to said it'd fry my board. So, I went up to 768MB (two 128MB modules and two new 256MB modules) of PC800, and everything's cool. Dunno if this is your case, but here's some things ya might wanna check:

    -Boards made for 16-bit RDRAM do NOT support 32 bit RDRAM (ya might wanna check what ya bought).

    -Boards made for PC800 RDRAM, especially older boards, wont support PC1066 RDRAM (they get fried, as I'm told).

    Also, if you upgrade to 768MB of RDRAM, you wont notice the difference between that and 512MB of PC1066, except in a benchmark. I have yet to see any game (Unreal II, UT2003, etc.) slow down because of my RAM. Just something to consider. Anyways, best of luck, : peace2: Mista K6
    Modified Dell 8200 Case:
    -400MHz FSB i850 Intel mobo
    -P4 Williamette Socket 478, 1.9GHz
    -768MB 16-bit PC800 RDRAM
    -MSI GF4 Ti4200 128MB @ 284/581
    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2
    -Windows XP Home Edition SP2

    Rock on : peace2: , MiStA K6

    Well that's true, but between 256 & 512 it's one hell of a difference in games..:eek:

    When i open my case and put a small (5inch) fan blowing on my video card no games crash. BF1942 plays with every thing up and the max amount of soliders with no problems at all. That still makes me think that if cool better it will work. I should add that im useing a 380 watt TruePower power supply, with just one fan. And an Antec Sonata "silente" case with 3 non-silent 120mm fanns added. 1 exast on the back, 1 intake on the side, 1 intake in the front (smart fan), and one monted between the video card and harddrive. Does that sound good? Now im thinking of adding another exhast on the top, and replaceng the front fan with a stronger one, and the ram heatsinks for the video card. Who thinks im just puting off the purchace of a new motherboard? This is what my board requires for memory... 2.5 v, RIMMs, Direct Rambus DRAM(RDRAM), using 128/144Mbit or 256/288 Mbit, pc600 or pc800, SPD memory only, ECC and non-ECC support. I have read on many sites that it will also accept pc1066.
