Don't forget the motherboard plays a big part.
My Venice won't run full DDR400 spec, it down clocks to 333, which is why I had to buy two 1GB modules and have two 512 Corsair Twin X gathering dust.

Afraid my ASRock Dual SATA2 will only run 4 x 512mb ram at 333. As soon as I force it to 400 I get random errors in Windows, BSOD's and freezes.

Take out extra 2 x 512mb ram and hey presto it works great.

Must admit all four modules are not the same but spec says it can handle unmatched ram.

I have a Venice E6 revision which I think is the latest for the 3500+

Yes it does,on my current mobo,2T @ 400 works just fine with 4 sticks.But on
my other mobo (DFI Nforce4 s939) it wont go,and is buggy.

Default Re: X2 3800 and 4 Dimms

So I have a quick question. My X2 3800 right now is idling at about 41/44c and is hitting 49c at full load (2 instances of prime95 left on for about 15 to 20mins). Im not sure what my room temp is currently but what I want to know is do you think its running a bit hot? Im not sure I did the best job in adding the AS5 and am wondering if I should go ahead and reseat the heatsink.

Would depend on the room temp,but I think that temp is fine,as that is what mine runs at,around 41c ~ idle,at full load I am seeing 53c.
