    agreed but for those
    whom goto computex and LN2 the boards or phase change etc then 600+fsb is needed.

    Re: Abit IP35 pro/Crucial PC8500 memory problem

    I had been running my Q6600 with 4 x 1GB Crucial Ballistix 1066 at 3GHZ with only the occasional BSOD which I had been putting down to Vista 64 driver issues. Recently I had a hard disk failure and restored my system with Vista backup image and then had a load of issues with configuring the BIOS (checksum errors etc) which resulted in reported memory errors. I now assume that all the BSOD's were down to memory glitches with having the overclocking/voltage combination running the memory right on the edge of its working envelope. I have now upped the MCH voltage by about .2 V and memory test errors / Prime 64 stress test and so on are fine. I will monitor the situation over the next week or so by which time I would have normally expected a couple of BSODs at least.

    ... so far so good, increasing MCH voltage definitely seems to have stabilised my system with its 4 memory cards.

    Hi Steve

    If your still checking out this thread, is there any chance of posting your settings ie timings/voltages in regards to the 4 sticks of crucial ballix 8500.
    I have a pain in my ass trying to get the 4 stix of the exact same memory on the ip35pro stable. Various timing & voltage settings have been tried with ever decreasing results.
    Each stick runs fine on its own or in pairs in various slot configurations & they all pass memtest individually, so I believe my settings are insufficient to keep the the 4 stix working stable.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks & best regards
    Mark V

    PS: I am considering 2 x 2gb G.Skill pi 8800 1.8v instead, anybody used these on ip35pro ?

    Re: Abit IP35 pro/Crucial PC8500 memory problem

    Well I am now running Vista 64 with 8 Gb G.Skill DDR2 PK PC2-8500.
    Just a little extra Mch and all is fine at 3.06 Ghz and memory at 1020, if I put it up to 3.2 Ghz and memory at 1068 then occasional BSOD.
    This is probably due to heat of controller chips, but as I use it for Cubase noise is a factor, so happy as it is.
    Saw someone had 3 ghz and memory running at 1066, how do you do that ? I always get 1020 at best.

    Re: Abit IP35 pro/Crucial PC8500 memory problem

    Mark,
    I gave up on the Ballistix in the end (it was my second lot -first was RMA'd back to Crucial) because after about 5 days of running ok it BSOD'd again and would not even boot. It stopped at post C1 - detect memory would you believe. The only way I could get it to boot again was new memory, so I went for Kingston HyperX 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel (KHX8500D2K24G).
    I am running this at standard SPD settings and also running the CPU at standard 2.4 Ghz settiings until I am confident that there were no other potentially underlying causes. Once I am happy, I will go back to 3 Ghz and 1066 for the memory and will post the settings I am using for this set up.
    I think the fact that I am using 2 sticks rather than 4 is probably going to be a contributary factor to getting a stable system - and the fact that I am not using Crucial any more!

    Re: Abit IP35 pro/Crucial PC8500 memory problem

    I had problems running Ballistix and an IP35, random failures to reboot after running fine for days, odd blue screens etc. The memory worked fine in all my other rigs so I think it just doesn't like this board or bios. Changed to 8Gb of Patriot ram in all 4 slots and it runs sweet as a nut now.

    Re: Abit IP35 pro/Crucial PC8500 memory problem

    Hi guys, tanx for the info, much appreciated.

    After searching many forums in regards to the ip35pro's allergic reaction to crucial ballix memory & the fact that so many people out there are having problems with, I bit the bullet & ordered 2 x 2 gb of the g.skill pi 8800 tt low voltage ram last night, should arrive tomorrow.
    I have a spare asus p5nd2 board I will try the crucial ballix in, if that doesnt work it will be sold off to the highest bidder.
    My original plan was to oc the e8200 from 2.66 to 3.3/3.4 ghz or there abouts. I do know it will go higher, but Im not into pushing the the sound barrier when it comes to oc'ing, just a decent stable bump up does me fine. This I hope should not be a problem with the 2 x 2 gb low voltage (paranoid) g.skills. 2 slots x low voltage, has to be a marriage made in heaven ?

    Anyway, tanx again guys & R.I.P. Abit, crucial probs aside.
