Does everyone's board clock down to 333 when 4 mem sticks are used? Works fine with 2. I updated all bios but the problem still occured.

You might be able to run 400 with a setting of 2T (unsure about 1T) for the command rate and with 4 sticks.

Also, looks like this thread needs to be in a different area.

Disable CPC in your Genie BIOS section. That selects 2T command rate. With CPC enabled it will try and run at 1T command rate.

Well I just tried that and when I ran CPUz it showed no change. I hope there is a fix. Here are my results, maybe someone can see something.

is your ram on auto or divider, i see where is sez FSBRAM CPU/12, yet above your CPU settings show a multi of 10 (x200, i assume).

normally that number after the CPU is 10 when running 1/1 and a 10x multi, same for 9 @1/1, etc.

i thought the NF4 boards ran the four slots loaded @200 and beyond with some small clocking.....

hmm.

I just want it to run at what it should.


Well if that is WHAT you want then it is doing 'exactly' as it should do because the AMD specification for the inbuilt memory controller inside the cpu is spec'd to drop the memory speed to DDR33 when 4 sticks are installed and that is exactly what you said it was doing.

Now if however you had said > is it possible that I can run my 4 sticks at 400DDR the rated speed of the memory that would have been the correct question? You may be able to do so by going into Bios and loading optimized settings> save and exit. Reboot and go Genie Bios and Dram configuration and at CommandPerClock CPC= DISABLE and save and exit and likely if the memory is capable enough it should be able to run DDR400 and show same at boot screen.

That is the quickest way to get there that I am aware of. There are other things may need adjusting for further move to correctness.

Ah ok I did try the disable cpc but it made no difference. I did not do the optimized bios so that may be what I did wrong. I was afraid to switch to optimized because I did not what it changed exactly. I will try that now.

Thanks
