I saw a review of that ram and it was the problem in the mobo they tested it in too. it took them 3 sticks of ram b4 they could start the testing, and they could barely overclock it to 200Mhz. The rival Corsair in the article had no issues whatsoever.. you should return it and get the Corsair. Its what I plus many others use and have had no problems with it.
Hmm, definately food for thought. I paid ~$190 for the XtremeDDR, memman.com has the corsair @ $273.00, but it is CAS 2 vs 2.5 so might be worth it. I'm willing to step down a bit even, what should I go with? Mabye DDR PC-3000 370MHz CAS2 @ $193.00? DDR PC-2700 333MHz CAS2 @ $183.00? I'm not sure what I'm really getting for each performance wise, or what will work best with my mobo.
Do you have the link to the article you mentioned?
What should I set my current memory to just to boot? 133, 100?
What are the standard settings for the AMD 2200+(bus/multiplier), I'm wondering if manually seting it would help? As I said, I haven't been able to find a good reference for it. Also, proper voltage?
heres the link. they talk about it on the bottom of the first page I believe. I got my PC3200 Cas 2 Corsair for $183.50 shipped from googlegear.com. Well worth it in my opinion. Oh and memman is WAAAAAY overpriced looks like too.
And the ram I bought is now $178.50 shipped 2 day fedex. Supply and demand! DAMNIT!!
Memman is $273 plus shipping.
