  1. hi all.i was the person who sold him the ram. i did have that ram up to 270fsb at no more than 2.8 volts, with more relaxed timings on my expert board,with an opty 170. never a problem. it took me a lot of testing,etc,and learning all the bios settings. what i realized is that 1 mem setting,if not set right and you would receive memtest errors. dave contacted me thru email,and i told him i would help him out as much as possible.it has been a few months now since switching back to intel,so i am really out of the loop with dfi amd boards. i see he has been getting some great advice here,and hopefully this gets resolved. roger

    i will try doing that all at once and see what happens.when i tried to set the bios to 84nc8,i would get a black screen as the os was loading.set it back to the 2-16 and it would post fine.
