Thread: Possible Ram Problem

  1. #1
    Hey, I had one stick of Infineon DDR400 Ram. I recently bought another stick, same brand, same speed, etc to run dual channel with. I've had dual channel working before using my one stick of DD400 and a stick of DDR333 and it worked fine. Now when I try to run dual channel, it works fine at stock speeds but when I try any oc at all, I get a series of long slow beeps during POST. I used to be able to oc up to about 2.3Ghz with my old slower ram, but now with my new ram I can't get any oc at all.

    Specs are:
    NF7-S 2.0
    Infineon DDR400Mhz (256x2)
    Athlon 2800+ Barton (unlocked)

    Any idea why I can't get any OC out of this at all. And why upgrading ram has unabled me to do anyhting past stock speeds?

    did it used to overclock with only one stick of ram?

    if it didnt then u probably need to increase the voltage for the cpu

    I've increased voltages on chipset, vcore, and vdimm, all making no difference at all.
    Besides if it were a voltage problem, I believe the beeps would be shorter and closer together rather then the long slow ones I'm getting now.
    It is not a voltage problem, any other ideas anyone?

    How do you have the CPU FSB/RAM ratio set in BIOS?

    Mine is set at 6:6 and seems fine, you may have to try a different ratio to achieve stability.

    Alright, I&#39;ll give that a shot

    Memory or video error...so you&#39;re on the right track.

    probably need to change the timings a little or something.
