new system build...system instability only when i crank up the rez
Mar 29, 2008, 8:20 PM
I am posting this for a friend of mine, he just built the system 4 weeks ago
ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor 3.2GHz Socket AM2 125W Dual-Core Processor
1 x EVGA 512-P2-N775-AR GeForce 8600GTS 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
two sets of
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Seagate ST303204N1A1AS-RK 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
ASUS 20x DVD-R Burner
PC P&C 750 crossfire edition
PCI fan VIZO-PCL-201 R
that's the build running XP 32 bit
the problem in anything but low rez settings on games like COD4 , EQ2, it locks up with graphic glitches,
in Crysis even in low rez , lock up , freeze, graphic glitches,
since the raidmax PSU is crap i recomended changing that first, now its changed still having same problems though
any advice for him ? and no he has not contacted evga...

Try increasing DDR2 RAM voltage. Those RAM run at 2.1v.
