|Hey jam :) long time no see.|
I upgraded my main machine to 2gb and thought it better to give the 1gb to the spare pc that only had 512mb.
Yeah I know 200x11 is better than 156x14.
"Generally, the minimum tRAS (last number in the timing sequence) should be the sum of the other 3 plus 2."
I didn't know that,thanks :)
I tried various FSB ratios,the higher the FSB the more it failed memtest.
Anyway,got the old ram out,ran the same timings I did before,200x11@3-4-4-8,passed memtest :)
Tried 1 stick at a time of the dual channel,200x11@2-2-2-11 and both passed memtest.
When I replaced the dual channel kit it wouldn't boot.
Pulled out replaced both sticks,nada,again and hey presto it booted.
Into bios,change settings to 200x11@2-2-2-11 and it passes memtest :)
I'll try it back@210x11=2300mhz again see how it goes.
So it seems it was (hopefully) just a bad connection.
On a side note..............
I run/use the spare pc as my own server.
I host my own website,forum and gaming servers.
Do you know any 'changes' I need to make within xp pro that tells the os to be a server?
The only 1 I know is.....
right click my computer
set memory usage to 'system cache'
