Re: 4x2GB Crucial Ballistix is nice!

not bad for running 4x2GB with quad core... remember PC2-8500 rating is for 2x2GB not 4x2GB and quad core stresses NB more than dual core

Re: 4x2GB Crucial Ballistix is nice!

I'm just annoyed because my P35 board was able to do it, and the more expensive X38 doesn't get close.


edit: And just to add to this, I've put my old D9Gxx sticks in and I've got DDR2-1200 5-5-5-11 2.25V just like that... only about 1.45V MCH. Grrrrr.

Re: 4x2GB Crucial Ballistix is nice!

test each 2GB module individually rate their performance mhz vs vdimm used and then match them in their respective dimm slots i.e. if dimm 1+3 slots clock ram higher and 2 of the 2GB modules aren't as good as the other 2, put the lower clocking dimms in better dimm 1+3 slots..

aim to match them all optimally in all slots for best 4x2GB clocks

different board/models might have different optimal dimm slots and you might have not used the exact same 4x2GB module config as before unless you number your modules like I do

Might give that a go. How do you mark each one? E.g. whiteboard marker/bit of paper blu tacced on etc, or do you write it down somewhere which order they are in?

Re: 4x2GB Crucial Ballistix is nice!

small piece of white masking tape stick to module and write #1, #2 etc for each module

then test modules and rate them i.e. http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?t=4310

so pair #1 - modules #1 + #2, pair #2 - modules #3 + #4, pair #3 - modules #5 + #6... then jot down on paper what each module #1 to #6 can do.. match them accordingly.

Important to also find out which dimm slot 1+3 or 2+4 is the better slots

Re: 4x2GB Crucial Ballistix is nice!

dosen't really matter with my P5E, tried both yellow and black slots, they are both ****. But yeh like you say Antari, 1GB sticks they clock quite well.
