hey i got 4x1gig corsair DHX C4 800mhz but i cant change the frequency from auto without it not booting with the 4 sticks installed in my motherboard (M3A32-MVP deluxe) but i can change the frequency with 2 sticks in so i was wonder which is a better quality ram for overclocking? got a 6000+ currently stuck at 243*14 ram at 486 4-4-4-15 2.3V i know the HT goes up 1600mhz which is what i am aiming for thus the ram needing to be of GOOD quality
either one of your corsair DHX sticks is faulty or your northbridge voltage isn't high enough to support 4 sticks of memory. Try and set it to about 1.45Volts and might be better. You could also try lowering your multiplier to x9 for 400FSB to be 1:1 with your memory at stock speeds, might be more stable.
Otherwise..... I'd go for Corsair or Mushkin 2x2gb.
I just bought that G.SKILL 2x2GB DDR2 800 kit and it's great. 4-4-4-12-2T at a little less than 2.1V, can't complain about that. Of course you might want to run at 1T with an AMD system, and I don't know if this kit can handle that. My DS3L can't do 1T so I can't test it for you either
I don't know much about AM2 overclocking, but I just upgraded from my 939 system and I don't think AM2 is much different. How low can the multiplier go on your 6000+? If you can do 8x400 I'd try that before buying new RAM.
