duckdown Posted July 30, 2005 Posted July 30, 2005 Hi all.. I RMA'd my ABIT AV8 and got a DFI LanParty nF3 Ultra-D (939) instead because I was sick and tired of the problems with the ABIT Motherboard.. Everything worked great right out of the box, and I was very pleased with the ease of use, etc. but I've noticed a strange problem! My RAM is this: OCZ Platinum 1024 Dual Channel kit which is DDR400 right? Well, upon bootup, it says DDR200 and also single channel! What the hell? First things first though.. I've got my sticks in the FIRST DIMM (orange) and the THIRD DIMM (yellow) Sticks in SECOND DIMM (orange) and FOURTH DIMM (yellow) produces beeping (no boot), and I just haven't plain tried both sticks in orange or both sticks in yellow (the manual says seperate channels) Also, when I first booted up the computer I set the RAM timing to 1T, so I tried putting it back to 2T, and then bootup showed DDR333 (Still not right though) What the heck is going on? Did my RAM somehow go bad in between motherboard changes? Why is the speed changing so much just due to me changing 1T/2T ? Why is it saying SINGLE CHANNEL instead of DUAL CHANNEL? Should I go exchange this MOBO before my 7 DAY exchange policy is up? HELP PLEASE ASAP. system specs: DFI LanParty nF3 Ultra-D AMD64 3500+ 939 1024 Dual Channel OCZ Platinum kit (pc-3200) BFG 6800GT OC AGP 256 74GB SATA Raptor 520Watt OCZ Powerstream PSU Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
