Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard

3 Answers

2 GB or more RAM is not functional

Hi, I have MSI K8N Neo4-F motherboard, relative no problems, I had Kingston 1 GB ram ----> 2 x 512 MB CL2.5 , no problems, I bought 2 x 1GB RAM Corsair XMS 3200C2 TwinX Platinum Series CL2, 2.6V ,400 Mhz, timings 3,3,6.

This DDR rams are good but only if I have one 1GB ram in motherboard, both rams are not functional, or system is unstable. System is crashing after 2 minutes or more, after 2 hours sometimes.
With old rams I have no problem.
These new rams are functional only each piece alone. With 512 Kingston are unfunctional too. Old owner of this rams say that he have no problems with rams.

Help meeee. Thanks

Hi Slavomir9,

I had exactly the same problem. I have the same mobo and tried upgrading to 2GB of exactly the
same Corsair memory and had the same problems as you. I persuaded the memory supplier to take
the Corsair memory. back. The then installed 2 x 1GB of Kingston RAM and it worked fine. I don't
think Corsair memory works very well with this card.

I tried every possible combinations of timings, 64 bit or 128 bit mode, slots, voltages.

Ram problems...msi k8n neo4 platinum and have 2X Corsair CMX1024-3200PT 1GB and 2X Kingston KVR400X64C3A/1G. I can get each pair to work dual channel 400mhz but when I install the secound pair no matter...

You will need to manually set the ram speed, in the BIOS to 333MHz as the board does not support 400MHz in dual channel mode. Also, the slot lay out is every other slot, so you need to put one brand of RAM in slots one and three, then the other brand in slots 2 and 4. The 3GB maybe incomparability in using two different brands. I had this exact board and it was very finicky with RAM. I know DDR is expensive, so you may be stuck with 3GB, but I'd expect some errors. You see, each brand may have different timings the old BIOS cannot pair up between the brands, causing a conflict and causing you to lose out on 1GB of RAM.

Check the manual pages 2-7 and 2-8 for memory can get the manual from here:
