has anyone had similar issues, or know the problem is? im getting lots of blue screen errors on two K8V bases systems

- System 1 - brand new install -

Athlon 64 3200+
Asus K8V SE Deluxe
2x512Mb 400 DDRRAM - Samsung ECC - with ECC Off.
SATA(only) 160Gb WD
powercolor Radeon 9700 Pro

- System 2 - Upgrade -

Athlon 64 3200+
Asus K8V SE Deluxe
2x512Mb 400 DDRRAM - Samsung ECC - with ECC Off.
PATA(only) 160Gb WD
Asus Radeon 9600 SE

1. crashes when trying to install anything.
2. crashes when CPU use becomes to high, unpredictable

while they both use the same RAM both sets of ram come from differant batchs... about one month apart.

all Bios and drivers are updated

we tryed with only 1 stick of ram and 2

any help would be great thanks.

Run memtest86, see if the problem is indeed the RAM.

If it is, relax the timings in bios, and run memtest again, see if it resolves it.

If it does, increase settings little by little, see what performance you can sqeeze out of them. Or replace the modules with modules that are qualified for that board by Asus.

Another potential problem cold be the PSU, as another poster pointed out.

i'll run that memtest by them... but we did relax the timing... to 3-4-4-8

the PSU is 400W on both systems

we are going to try a differnt brand of RAM too

the RAM right now heats up ALOT!!! burning to touch.
