THG Puts 13 Bleeding-Edge Memory Modules, 14 Mobos To the Match-Up Test

Gigabyte GA-K8NNXP - NVIDIA nForce3 150

BIOS: F13 (May 4, 2004)

In contrast to the K8VNXP, the K8NNXP, which works with the nForce3, poses virtually no problems. We were unable to operate some of the modules from Infineon reliably - Prime95 regularly crashed with a fatal error.

Unfortunately, only by the DIMMS from GeIL and SimpleTech can the SPD be read correctly and the appropriate timing settings be utilized in the BIOS. In the case of a total of ten modules, we had to intervene to operate them with the stipulated timings. This is forgivable, as Gigabyte refers to the AMD specification and does not consider this component arrangement to be typical.
