  1. I have received a response from AndyT over at OCZ and am currently using his suggested settings. With these, I pass MemTest Test 5 for over an hour no problems, and it will run Prime for about the same period of time... Problem is that once i have been running normal apps +/or gaming for a while (like all night for example), strange things start to go wrong.. Usually it is just the wireless card failing, or java crashing and stuff - but i'm a little worried that it might become a little more serious if i just leave it...

     

    I have sent AndyT off another email - but thought i'd repost here and see if anyone had anything more immediate?

     

    So, after another weekend of strange hardware problems I find myself with the following settings:

     

    GENIE BIOS Setting

     

    >DRAM Configuration

    FSB BUS Frequency.................... 200

    LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio.............. AUTO

    LDT BUS Transfer Width............... 16 16

    CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio.............. AUTO

    PCI eXpress Frequency................ 100Mhz

    K8 Cool 'n' Quiet Support............ Disable

    Cool 'n' Quiet MAX FID............... AUTO

    CPU VID StartUp Value................ 1.500

     

    CPU VID Control...................... AUTO

    CPU VID Special Control.............. AUTO

    LDT Voltage Control.................. 1.30 V

    Chip Set Voltage Control............. 1.60 V

    DRAM Voltage Control................. 2.90 V ** (2.7v-2.9v)

     

     

    GENIE BIOS Setting >DRAM Configuration

    DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ)............. 200 (DRAM/FSB:1/01)

    Command per clock (CPC).............. Enabled

    Cas latency (tCL).................... 2

    RAS to CAS delay (tRCD).............. 3

    Min RAS active time (tRAS)........... 8 ** (or 7)

    Row precharge time (tRP)............. 2

    Row cycle time (tRC)................. 8 ** (or 7)

    Row refresh cycle time(tRFC)......... 14 ** (or 16)

    Row to Row delay (tRRD).............. 3

    Write recovery time (tWR)............ 3

    Write to read delay (tWTR)........... 2 ** (or 1)

    Read to write delay (tRWT)........... 3 ** (or 2)

    Refresh period (tREF)................ AUTO ** (or 3120)

    Write CAS latency (tWCL)............. AUTO

    DRAM Bank Interleave................. Enabled

     

    DQS Skew Control..................... AUTO

    DQS Skew Value....................... 0

    DRAM Drive Strength.................. Level 6

    DRAM Data Drive Strength............. AUTO

    Max Async Latency.................... AUTO

    Dram Response........................ Normal

    Read Preamble Time................... AUTO

    Idle Cycle Limit..................... 256

    Dynamic Counter...................... Disable

    R/W Queue Bypass..................... 16

    Bypass Max........................... 7

    32 Byte Granularity.................. Disable

     

    * vDIMM less that 2.9v will fail MemTest with 100+ errors (Test5)

    ** I've tried most adjustments of these, and in most cases am using the loosest of the settings given by AndyT

     

    Does anyone have any ideas/tweaks that they can suggest.

  2. Hi, I've had this board for ages and have been having alot of the problems that you see on the forum: blue screens (IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, etc) and also get random failures from my wireless network card... I cold start, modify my settings and things seem to be stable for a while - but then eventually things will bug out again... I've gotten totally frustrated - so here i am... ;o)

     

    I have all 4 connectors in the board. I've tried all sorts of settings - including just setting everything to auto (which was even more of a disaster!) Once I notice the problems - if I shut down for a while and let everything cool off, everything is usually ok for a while... so I'm thinking that the problem is related to memory - possibly having problems once things start getting a little hot?

     

    Anyway I am using the following GENIE settings:

     

    200

    Auto

    16 | 16

    Auto

    100

    Disable

    1.425v

    1.3v

    Above * 113%

    1.2v

    1.5v

    2.7v

    Disable

     

    And my current DRAM config:

     

    200

    Enable

    2

    3

    5

    2

    13

    17

    3

    3

    2

    3

    1560

    Auto

    Enabled

    Auto

    0

    level 8

    level 2

    8ns

    Normal

    6ns

    256

    Disable

    16x

    7x

    Disable

     

    Anything anyone can come up with as a suggestion would be greatly appreciated...

     

    Cheers,
