Hello all,

I have an interesting situation with my memory, and I can't work it out by myself. First, My current setup:

AMD Athlon X2 4800+
A8N-SLI Premium
2 G memory
GeForce 7800 GTX

My problem is that I just recently purchased another gig of memory to put into my box. The old gig was a set of Corsair TWINX1024-3200XL DDR 400, which Corsair apparently no longer makes. I decided to go with a set of OCZ Enhanced Latency 1GB (2X512) DDR 400. The approved timings on the Corsair are 2-2-2-5 @ 2.75v, and 2-3-2-5 @ 2.6v for the OCZ. After I put the new OCZ in, I bumped up the timings to 4-4-4-6 @ 2.75, just to make sure that the Corsair was getting enough juice. Unfortunately, I am still getting blue-screened almost every time I try to play a game. Can anyone recommend a good timing and voltage that would be stable on my system? Thanks in advance.

that a common problem with that build, look at the asus forums. I had the same motherboard, only way to get half stable system is if you drop it to DDR333. you will have to switch to 2T timmings also.

in the end i sold all my memory and moved to 1gb X2 config.

just google "amd x2 memory controller 4x512", you will that its pointless.
