Gigabyte ram issue

Hi all
I have sold two 512 sticks of Crucial Balitix PC4000 to a friend. It works fine with one stick but crashes with two. It fail Prime95 after less than 1 min.
His spec is
Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF-9
Athlon 64 3700
160 gig HDD
DVD player
400watt PSU
no other ad on cards.

I have tried different slots and updated the bios with no difference. I think its possible that the mobo isnt giving the ram enough volts but there are no settings for this in the bios even after pressing Ctrl F1 or what ever it is.
Is this a known issue or does the mobo just not like pc4000.
I would appreciate any help
Thanks

I had the same problem on my GA-K8N, it’s due to the memory controller overloading. There is a setting that should let you change the speed from t1 to t2, do this and your system should become stable again.

great thanks for that I will give it a go tonight. Thinking about it I did have it set to T1.
Thanks

I will try it on T2 first and then if that doesnt work I will have to put DDR400 in it.
Cheers

MrsBytch is just overstating the obvious again. Delete to access the BIOS.
