Ram Placement on LPnf2b


Recommended Posts

Hi, would like to know where is the best place to put the ram in a lan party nf ultra b. I purchaced some ram (ocz pc4000 platinum 2gb) not long ago and i have managed to get them to run ok. I currently have them pluged in to slots 1,2 and expansion port 3 is free. i am asking this because i have seen lots of strange configurations for ram in the nf 4 systems(eg slots 1,3). Does ram placment make much difference on this board in peformance or other things or is it just for the nf 4 systems. Thanks Rob!

right now you're running in single channel mode...

 

try slots 1 and 3 and see how that does.. that's dual channel mode... should work great for ya... try slots 2 and 3 also.

As Darien has stated try both other configurations...........rule of thumb is that the slots furthest from the cpu socket will give out the least errors so that would be slots 2&3, but test for you as this does not always hold true.

Ram placement would only reflect how much errors you might or might not get,,,,,ram voltage and ram timings would show you a performance increase if your ram is capable.

Nf2 and Nf4 are 2 different animals so no, either dont compare to the next.

 

General guide lines are slots 2&3 and vdimm on yer ocz in the range of 2.8v to 3.0v but again you would have to test this as it might take more volts, if i remember though the ocz stuff doesnt like high volts.....YOur mem timings should go along like 11,3,3,3,2.5,13,15 auto for rest, all the 3's could be changed to 2's if your ram will run that tight. Again you will have to test to try....................Off course this goes along the lines of OCing for as much high fsb as you can squeeze out of yer ram....

 

 

Darien a question dude,,,,,,,,,,,,,,have you done a vdimm mod???????????? IF so which one have you tried.........................

DDR is short for Dual-Data Rate, an acronym for a type of memory. Dual Channel is a motherboard feature that, when using memory in both channels, results in faster memory bandwidth than normal Single Channel mode. Only two chipsets support this on Socket A, nVidia nForce2 and Via KT880.

 

Is there an XP-M 3000+?

No, I pushed the FSB up to 212.5mhz on the board. As long as you have good memory and apply your voltages correctly, you can get some overclocking out of a 3200+, just not very much.
