  1. I had the exact same problem, i solved it when switching out my Corsair 3200 memory for Gskill 4400. Mine also seems to boot up, display the video card information, then reboot and from that moment on, runs fine most of the time. It occaisionaly needs a reset to get through post.
  2. THe two sticks where bought as a dual channel kit. This is driving me insane, i've just been trying my A8N motherboard again, it turns out to be stable at 1T at stock speeds, and even up untill 240fsb x 10 multi (although above that it's baibai) I can't even keep 1T stable on any speed on the DFI. Now i'm starting to believe that this mobo is broken. This is driving me insane...
  3. what? i need to actualy look at the cpu itself to determine this? I dont have enough thermalpaste to put it back on afterwards =P The closest i could get via those charts is this: Comparing my revision number BI = 00010FF0h, Winchester 939, rev. DH8 D0, 90 nm SOI
  4. How do i check? Its not a gskill problem, i tried my old pc3200 corsair, it crashed on 1T as well
  5. I've tried settings similar to those and some variations of them, the only stability i get is when i disable CPC (set it to 2T). And especialy since the same thing is happening on my A8N, putting it on 1T makes it go baibai as well. I'm going to borrow that 3500+ venice on sunday and try it on both my A8N and my Ultra-D. Right now as overclocking goes, i can get it upto 260x10 @ 1.5v or so on both my A8N and my DFI (given that i set it to 2T), but that isnt very stable, it'll run for an hour or so and then it will crash. 250x10 is stable on my A8N and the DFI as far as i've seen (ofcourse both motherboards on 2T), i've tried higher FSB settings with lower multi's but they all end up in a horrible crash as soon as the fsb goes higher than 265.
  6. Uhh... come to think of it, i don't recall ever setting the memory manualy to 1T on my A8N, i've just let it sit there on auto for the past 8 months, asuming that it was doing 1T. Guess what happened, i just set it to 1T, it bsods before even making it into Windows, i think its borked, i won't know for sure though untill i test with the other CPU.
  7. Yeah, i'm returning my friends PSU tonight and beat him till he lets me try his 3500+ venice. BTW, thanks for all the help up untill now, i really apreciate it.
  8. Well i tried a different PSU that i know works with roughly the same system. Still the same problems though. Don't really know what else to do other than to run it at 2T timings.
  9. Tried it twice already, flashed it to 623-3 out of the box and then to 702-3 to see if that solved any problems. And back again to 623-3. Do you remmember exactly what settings you made in teh bios to get your LD ram to work? Do you have an MSN adress where we could talk more easely than on these forums?
  10. Yes i switched them around, no change. I've been at it for 13 hours straight now and i'm about to throw this thing into the fire =P
  11. Well... weirdness, with CPC disabled its stable so far It survived the benchmarks at 250fsb x 10, 1.500vcore, 2.7v memory, htt multi at 4
  12. I'm getting his PSU tomorrow for testing, My friend has the exact same RAM, we checked the numbers, with my RAM at stock speeds, it just crashes, with his RAM however, it does not. (atleast not as much as with mine) Right now i seem to have the system stable at stock speeds with CPC Disabled CPU throteling Disabled Vcore 1.400v Memory 2.7v Dram Frequency Set 200mhz (all other settings set at Optimised Defaults) This however gives me a 10% performance loss in memory benchmarks (actualy the same as it was on my A8N Sli-Deluxe)
  13. This thing is driving me insane, I tried overclocking with my old pc3200 ram, with which on my A8N Sli Deluxe i could get it up to 240fsb x 10multi. Htt multi 4x, vcore 1.5v, memory 2.8v On this motherboard however it crashes at 240, 230, 220 and 210 I find it weird that with my mate's RAM it runs a tadd more stable but still crashes when attempting to overclock. He has the same motherboard and ram as i have, only a 3500 venice instead of my winchester. We got his machine upto 260x10 @ 1.52v with the memory @2.9v
  14. The PSU is an AeroPower 550Watt, it has a 20pin ATX connector but i used a converter to get it to 24 pins. Another interesting thing happened, my friend brought over his Gskill PC4400 ram (same as mine) and that worked with default clocks @ 2.6v and Optimised Settings, something my ram does not. However any overclocking with his ram resulted in the usual BSOD I've also discovered another interesting thing, in CPUz one of the DIMMs is displayed as PC4400 and the other as PC4600. But i do not recall that being a problem with my old A8N SLI-Deluxe. I fired that one up again just to check, and as i expected it showed one as PC4400 and one as PC4600 All 4 powerconnectors are attached to the mobo
  15. I've set them all to auto, i've also tried setting 2-3-3-6 (settings for my RAM at 200mhz) and 2.5-4-4-8 (settings for my RAM at 275mhz) This is what it sets it to after loading optimised defaults: DRAM Configuration DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ): Auto Command Per Clock (CPC): Auto CAS Latency Control (Tcl): Auto RAS# to CAS# Delay (Trcd): Auto Min RAS# Active Time (Tras): Auto Row Precharge Time (Trp): Auto Row Cycle Time (Trc): 07 Bus Clocks Row Refresh cyc time (Trfc): Auto Row to Row Delay (Trrd): 02 Bus Clocks Write Recovery Time (Twr): 02 Bus Clocks Write to Read delay (Twtr): 02 Bus Clocks Read to Write delay (Trwt): 03 Bus Clocks Refresh Period (Tref): 3120 Cycles Write Cas Latency (Twcl): Auto DRAM Bank Interleave: Enabled DQS Skew Control: Auto DQS Skew Value: 0 DRAM Drive Strength: Auto DRAM Data Drive Strength: Auto Max Async Latency: Auto DRAM Response Time: Normal Read Preamble Time: Auto Idle Cycle Limit: 256 Cycles Dynamic Counter: Disable R/W Queue Bypass: 16x Bypass Max: 07x 32 Byte Granularity: Disable (4 Bursts)
  16. I've aquired my DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D a few days ago, ever since i installed it i've been having stability issues which seem to be comming due to the RAM i'm using (lots of BSODs). I've already read a lot of threads about this motherboard having issues with G.Skill RAM and i've tried the fixes listed in those threads. Both DIMMs are in the orange slots. I've ran Memtest86 and let it pass a few times and it displays no errors. However when i get into Windows it tends to get unstable during games. I've been using the memory benchmarks in PCMark04 to see if it stays stable after having made changes in the bios, it usualy crashes on the 4th memory test. (sometimes i have to run the memorytest twice before it BSODs) The weirdest thing is that the bios sets my memory voltage to 2.6v, and its most stable at that. (i've had it upto 3.0v and it only gets more unstable as i go higher) What's even weirder is that a mate of mine has a virtualy identical system (same motherboard, ram, etc), except he has a 3500+ venice, the instability problems on his rig where solved by upping the memory to 2.9v I've dug through the bios a few times and noticed that when resetting to optimised defaults it starts setting some memory settings (trc, twr, twrt, etc) putting these (and all other settings on that page) to default didnt solve anything either. Tried reinstalling Windows, updating it and installing the latest drivers for all my hardware, did not solve it. Now i've had everything run stable when i was still using my A8N Sli-Deluxe motherboard I grabbed my older Corsair PC3200 ram, inserted it into the orange slots, and voilla, total stability Currently running the latest BIOS from the DFI site, other system specs are in my sig. All 4 powercables are connected to the motherboard I need some help before i go insane =(, thanks.
