k, one of my friend got 4 sticks of corsair pc3500 bh5 stuff. he has a DFI-UltraD and a8nsli, 1 pair of bh5 works great, the other pair even have problems booting into windows :thumbdwn:

Anyway, the pair that suppose to be not working, I saw it boot 2-2-2-5 with a mobileXP and a7n8x mobo. and previously all 4 sticks were running in a p4 mobo (dual channel), and it was running in an a8nsli with 2.75V.

so waht could be the problem??

The Ultra D I had was very picky about ram. One BH-5 set I had worked great up to 265 while another set (under a different mfg's label) had trouble past 216. It is odd that one pair from the same source will not work but ram chips are different. Hopefully the next bios update will be more forgiving.

I had similar experience with a couple of TCCD sets.

Reflash the BIOS to the latest version and see if that fixes your problems...

change your memory timing to AMD (2.5), (3)-3-3-8, 2.7V. and see if that helps you can try 2.5 for amd, 2-3-3-6, that memory is not known for overclocking as far as I know. :cool:
