|I have the EVGA 680i motherboard, the intel core2duo E6850 @3.0GHZ 1333MHZ FSB, Rosewill 850W PSU, Coolermaster HAF case, stock heatsink for processor, sata hdd.|
For my upgrades i bought 8GB of patriot ram DDR2-800MHZ, 4x2GB sli ready memory.
Now, i know how to adjust the voltages to the recommended 2.1V, but i do not know how to adjust the timings so that my computer don't crash immediately afterwards. i contacted patriot yesterday and nothing back from them. According to patriots website it is fully compatible with the 680i mobo, but i can keep it stable enough to game.
i also purchased an other 8800GTS 512 to sli with the one i have been using for nearly 2 years now. I pluged in the additional power connector into the motherboard to support sli, followed the directions for the install of the second card and it seemed to work.
i opened a game and tested it out, was satisfied (played for about 30min no problems). so then i install the ram, and it lags every 20 min or so.
i believe it has something to do with the timings or one of the sticks is faulty. so if you could help me out a bit it would be appreciated.
