DFI NF4 Expert bios for 4GB of ram.

Recommended Posts

I know I might get told its my opteron 165 again, but I finally got a bios that can boot sticks with the yellow slots. But when it shows the post screen, its shows only channels 1,3 and 5,6 are in use, not all 8 of them , 1,3 and 5,6 , and 2,4 and 7,8

 

Also in windows, it shows 2GB of ram, I am installing xp 64bit now. I will let you know if this fixes my issues.

 

CPU-Z shows 4096MB of ram, and the spd's of all the sticks.

but task manager only shows 2048 as my memory.

and running 4 windows memtests, failed to work too.

 

 

also would trying my dfi nf4 lanparty sli-dr give me a better chance?

ok you dont understand.

 

How does everyone think thats my issue here. I get treated like a noob, everywhere I go as ask for support. This is horrible.

 

when I put memory in the yellow slots, they work

when I put memory in the orange slots, they work

 

when I put memory in all slots, it turns off the yellow slots and only uses the orange slots.

 

now is their a bios that doesn't do this? or is this the cpu's job?

All official bios versions for the Expert/Venus boards support all four slots being occupied. If the memory is known good matched sets and the timings are configured properly any issues will be because of the memory controller.

ok, so using un-matched pairs is impossible, and could cause this issue?

even though cpu-z shows them all.

 

even when timings are set properly, and they both handle same timings

 

thats too bad, I cant buy the a matched pair anymore. ddr is gone.
