hi every1,

welcome to my headache :-)

i changed my old mobo D946(burnt while experimenting with how to configure my 7.1 speaker in same mobo, freaks me that my board failed me, but da configuration was best when i purchassed in past with PENTIUM D 800 MHz), with MSI G41M-P26

since the time i purchased it (3 month back)
was gettin BSOD. kept avoiding thinking that it is graphic card (ASUS HD5450) problem, ruled out Graphic card problem by removing it Virtually from mobo by BIOS allowing only to access internal graphics option rather than using PCI E

once i googled the issue, and thought to check my RAM.
Guess what MEMTEST+ and Windows memory diagnostics showed faulty RAM.

Everything was fine, till i Removed RAM to find out its 1333 MHz, which is not supported officially by my mobo ( actually i just purchased the mobo, in hurry, in 10pm hurry/shop closing situation)

the point is 1033 MHz RAM are out of market,( :-)
oops comps developing very fast)

official MSI website say it supports 1333* OC (may be overclocked)

can i underclock my repaired/replaced RAM

anything (knowledge/wisdom/laughs) guys???
i don't have anything on my lappy to keep me entertained

anything missing!! m all ears!!! Never mind subcategory as ASUS, Coz i had no other option say strontium
solutions plz, (exept throw my HDD)


thanks in advance

Yes you should be able to set your RAM timing in your BIOS.

anything over 1066 by JEDEC standerd is concidered overclocking. but, ram manufactures test their chips to run at the rated speed they say it will.

never heard of zion, so looks like youll be posting the first review, right? :)

thanks every1 :hello:  , and in particular to Guavasauce, for referring to
JEDEC standards.


(@Guavasauce :D  yeah i m rookie to comps :D  , And master of pharma ;) 
actually i have heard of zion, but in my locality Kingston>transcend>corsair>strontium. )

after two days of boredom with my company's lappy, i have learnt to live with it, so i hope can wait few more days,
it will save my wallet also. :D 
anyways m on project trip, since i posted, sorry for late response


all of you were very decisive, so m not goin for new RAM
(till replacement on 8 march, yeah service care are replacing it, :)  )

will continue, after i have installed replacement, so that others having similar downgrades issue may be benefited..

till then take care.. :sol:

hi every1 :hello: 

welcome back to my thread, :) 

updates:

service care replaced my RAM with new one,
i ran MEMTEST+, its again showing errors, also
i would like to point that Windows diagnostic shows errors exactly at 16%.
(my only friend still using desktop is out of city, so i couldn't test my new RAM on another system) :non: 

more, i contacted MSI service care,
and complaint about memory slots,
they replaced it immediately. :love: 

i got both my MOBO, & RAM replaced,
still its showing errors on running diagnostic tests. :pfff: 


could some1 tell me,

(plz go through specs of my mobo, coz my mobo's box says it supports only 800 & 1033 MHz DDR3 RAM,
but MSI site says it supports 1333 MHz OC :ouch: 
m confused, becoz less knowledge always hurts
my friends told me that "may be its ur old cpu, which can not support ddr3", but this is out of my mind, coz manufacturer says it will support pentium d )

is it RAM with 1333 MHz,
shall i change it with available 1033MHz ?????

thanks lostinspacex,

for reading and replying for old thread.
the problem was with, RAM itself.
i replaced the RAM at RMA.


Now its fine, working at 800MHz, with no problem at all.




:love:  ed ur good intentions,

take care,

this is a very old thread but ill jump in it regardless - because im running a 1600mhz cl9 kingston hyperxblu ram on this same motherboard with no problems - just it's running @ 1066 cl7 timings... well 1333mhz cl7 in my case since im overclocking the cpu, (should be cl8 i guess but seems it still stays on cl7 on automatic timings)
this is with a 1066fsb core2duo,

what im wondering is can it go any higher? - what would happen if i threw a 2133-2400mhz ram in it? could i still run it on same low freq but some ridiculously low CL timings? or it wouldn't accept it at all?

thanks yanis31 for reading my old thread and replying,
as i stated my problem was solved, but IMHO if u will get no improved user experience if u use 2133 or above MHz RAM due to CPU limitation,
even in case MOBO accepts it.
(anyways i have assembled new system, few months back)
:-)
