Question about MSI P7N Diamond Core 2 Quad/ Nforce 780i SLI/ FSB 1333/ RAID/ 3-Way SLI/ A&2GbE 7510010 Motherboard
I will be sending back this board for the 3rd RMA. The first time I had Mushkin 2 x 2 1067 memory. It would not run at 1067 but ran at 900. Then I started have problems with the system freezing. I swapped the RAM in and for Crucial RAM, true 1967. In the midst of that, the board started to smoke at the 3rd memory slot. I got a replacement back last week and tried the Crucial memory in it. Both the MSI boards and the Crucial tech guy told me to play around with BIOS settings, but to make a long story short, it first would not recognize memory in the 2nd through 4 slots, and then it would not work at all, even with one stick in the first slot. When I get the next RMA, what kind of memory should I get and what settings should be changed in the BIOS?
This may be a bois issue and you have to go in and make changes to the spd file, epp, xmp, according to an articale i was reading that the guide line setup by the jedec group allow the motherboard manufacture set it up to 800 and anything over 800 will not be recongnized because there is no standard out there the company can go in and change the bandwidth or tweak it and say there chip can produce 1300mhz and the chip may produce 1333mhs, also can go in and adjust the temp. of the cpu and that will change the speed also.
the memory slots on the motherboard are the most important and that is where you want the most ram it can support in the motherboard configuration, when you start trying to use slots 3 and 4 your are making the machine work harder than it should have to. lets say you have a board that allows 4gb per slots and you can use 1 or 2, or both shots you are going to get the best performance with the lesser amount of curcuitry the system has to use, lets say you have motherboard that supports 4 dimm slots and you put 1gb per slot your machine will do 4x more work and slow your system down 4x or even 4fold,
some company are going to tell the custome what they want you to hear. just look at the speed performance over all, more conponet more work for the machine to perform, less componet better performance, memory 1 stick or 4 sticks, just think.
if you are sharing you vedio memory than add 1 gb on top of you system ram.
i have hp notebook it cam with 2gb ram and it can share up to 800 mg vedio ram, so the manufacture said you can either run 3gb or 4gb of memory, the cost between 1 stick of memory pair of match one were about the same price, hp price was about 100.00 dollars, that 100.00 dollars each peace.
kingston same memory memory bought for hp computer manufacture and they put there label on it. kingston memory matching pair or set # are inseqaence or following numbet sets were about 69.00 to 75.00 lifetime warrenty threw kingston verses hp one year from date of purchase.so i got 2gb x 2 chip total of 4gb daul channel memory.
go on line compair pricing with other venders
memory.com or type in memory chip in theinternet address bar.
anything over 800 mhz is being considered overclocking.
anything you push beyond the normal operating speed is going to be considered overclocking and void on part from the manufacture so is it worth overclocking to shorten the life of your product.
