P4PE-X and freezing >_<

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus (More info?)

I have the P4PE-X motherboard, P4 2.8C HT, 2x512 Micron DDR ram, etc. At
random, this thing likes to freeze. Under load, idle, whatever. I thought I
had it fixed when it was on for five days straight without a glitch.
However, I decided to do a CPU torture test with Prime95 (Seen it mentioned
in here, decided to test it out and watch my temperatures) the CPU got to 55
degrees C when it froze.
I've discovered I am by far the only person having this problem with this
motherboard. But I haven't found anybody that has found a fix for the
freezing yet.
Anybody here have any experience with this?
I hate to list every single thing I've tried in attempt to fix this. But
maybe I'm missing something....

    If you read the web page for using an 845PE Northbridge with an
    FSB800 processor, it says you can use only one DDR400 DIMM in
    that configuration. Connecting two DIMMs is asking for trouble.

    The manual has this statement in it:

    "If you installed a CPU with 800MHz FSB, you need to use
    a PC3200 (400MHz) DDR module."

    Which seems to be a weasly way of saying "a PC3200" equals
    "one PC3200" DIMM.

    Compare to this page:
    http://www.asus.com.tw/support/cpusupport/fsb800.aspx

    Something else you might want to consider, is it could be the
    cooling on the Northbridge. Motherboards, no matter what brand,
    sometimes have problems with the way the heatsink is fastened
    to the motherboard, and the heatsink may not be making good
    contact. Some heatsinks don't have any thermal interface material
    between the heatsink and the chip. Others use an adhesive pad,
    which can make removal difficult, without damaging the chip, so
    just have a look at it first, and if it is secure, leave it alone.

    HTH,

    Hello, I have tried 2.8c in the P4PE-X with few problems. I also tried 3.2c
    processor, does the same thing your talking about.

    I use Corsair CMX512-3200C2PT 512MB DDR400 PC3200 XMS Memory
    I have tried with one stick and two sticks in the board, same thing

    The Corsair CMX512 ,. I can use two sticks with the 2.8c works good with my
    P4PE-X
    By the way his motherboard is being over clocked with this 800mhz fsb
    processor,.

    I bought a P4P800-E deluxe to run the 3.2c, and it works great with that same
    ddr memory.

    Try That Corsair, I bet it will work. I will buy me a 3.06 533 fsb next, I got a
    couple P4PE-X motherboards
    I can use.. great board, I just can't use anything above 2.8c processor with
    this board.

    That's quite interesting. Micron is supposed to be good ram and on the
    approved vendors list. I can't exactly afford to buy new ram right now
    though.
    It's also interesting because this board is 'supposed' to be able to handle
    as high as P4 3.4Ghz, even the P4 EE chips.

    I have talked to an intel rep, I had same issue as you. I told them what I use,
    they again reminded me that I am
    overclocking this motherboard with my 3.2c , I bet its the same issue with you
    with the 2.8c. What kind of video card
    are you using? Maybe Asus will release an updated bios so we can have a fix for
    this problem, to bad its tough getting
    intouch with them. I think should be able to run the 3.2c with this board. I can
    with the 2.8c with this Corsiar ddr and thisAsus
    Geforce FX 5700, this compo seems to works great for me,. I can play Unreal
    Tournament 2004 with no problems, its Fast.
    I wish I had a better Video Card, but all good things in do time.. in my other
    P4PE-BP , at the moment I have my Asus Geforce FX 5800
    in that one.. anyways good luck. if you need to email me fill free.

    I also found this page, take a look at it.
    http://www.asus.com.tw/support/cpusupport/fsb800.aspx Maybe I have too much
    ram in this board?
    I have contacted Asus today about this. No response yet. I'm using a Radeon
    8500LE 128MB 4X AGP video card.
    This is the message I sent to their help desk today
    "At random, this computer likes to freeze up. I've tried every possible
    thing to fix this problem. Changed CPU, Power supply, Ram, formatted, no
    viruses, latest drivers, used old drivers, disabled hyperthreading, ram
    hardware tests, ram tests, did process or elimination with hardware, etc.
    I have found I am by far the only person having this issue with this
    motherboard. I bought this board probably less then two months ago brand
    new. Have taken it to a technician with no success.
    I am hoping there is a fix for this or a revised bios version coming out
    soon to fix this problem. Can you please provide some assistance on this
    issue?
    Thank you."

    Ive got similar issues when going to 2 DIMMS, both 512MB matched
    mfg-speed-size (although NOT a "pair" or bought as a matched pair).
    Currently its a Kingston DDR-SDRAM PC2100

    Im running a P4-2GHz, Adaptec AHA29160 with several UFW Cheetas (and
    with XP this is DOG SLOW... but another topic), Radeon 7500 dual
    monitor, Emulux LP8000 fibre HBA.

    THis machine wiht more than 512 in it will run for "awhile" then hard
    crash to a cold re-boot. Ive tried different RAM (again 2 DIMMS,
    different manufacturer - same size - same speed, albiet faster stuff)
    adn I get the same crash issues.

    Right now Im considering dumping this board and using a SOYO that Ive
    got in one of my *NIX boxes wiht a 3GHz celeron.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I say give the Soyo a try. It's not worth your trouble to try to fix that
    board. I've had this computer for about two months now and since day 1, it's
    been giving me issues. Random freezing, random rebooting, random crashes.
    I've replaced the board with an identical one, brand new, same with ram,
    power supply and so on. I've finally figured out it doesn't like using more
    then one DIMM with an 800FSB.
    Personally, I had AOpen before and just switched to Asus and so far, my
    experience with Asus has been poor.

    Oh, somone other that Asus is getting the business.... rest assured.

    After screwing around for the last few days with the RAM, this machine
    now crashes at random intervals wiht just a single DIMM in it. Put
    back EXACTLY the way it was prior to ading memory, and the thing dumps
    more often than a two-year-old on prune juice!

    Soon as the sun comes up Im off to get a new board and RAM.

    THanks for the advice. Ive had Asus before with good results, but
    simply dont have the time to play repairman on this thing.
