    What memory for NF7-S?

    Yo everybody,

    After much pkaying about trying to get my TwinMOS w/windbond memory to overclock to over 190 fsb, and trying everything I could to get it to work, I decided to sell my 512mb off, and change brands due to all the problems I've heard people having with them.

    So what do you NF7-S owners use? and what problems have you encountered? or if anyone is using the TwinMOS w/wb then have you encountered any problems?

    Cheers

    The Rufus

    I'm using TwinMOS with Winbond PC3200 and I'm doing fine.

    I'm using Crucial PC2700 overclocked to 400MHz. It's overall stable, but I get the odd hiccup.
    Would increasing the voltage help?

    I've got some copper heat-spreaders on my memory to help a bit

    The system runs below 30c at all times, its all well cooled inside, but as much as I have tried, never any luck getting the fsb to run stable over about 190.

    I've tried tweaking all sorts but no luck, and Im pretty sure its the memory due to the nature of the dumps

    Thought I replied early to this, but my posts not here, so I obiously didnt!

    I have and it stabilises things, but its not even stable at full speed.

    I just updated the BIOS too to see if that would help..... well, no idea if it has, when it passes all the system checks alright, and confirms my RAID array, it just goes black

    Tried all the settings I can, no luck getting it to boot

    Any ideas? I have set the boot sequence and all that stuff, and the SATA RAID set up runs and confirms the array, but when I ran a boot disk and tried to see the HD, it couldnt see it

    So, any suggestions would be good, but otherwise I will just have to start a new thread!

    you think I should try those timings and slowly bring up the fsb?

    The BIOS upgrade didnt make a difference so I am going to order some heat spreaders too to see if that helps at all.

    worth a try i suppose,what voltages are you using?is the cpu overclocked?have you raised the chipset voltage?are you using 2 sticks of ram?if yes what slots are they in?

    heatspeaders will make absolutely no difference at all,they actually decrease airflow around the chips but they do look nice

    I only have the one stick of 512mb DDR, PC3200... I have tried upping the voltage with no good results, just a few more dump outs then full crashes... the only thing i havent tried is upping the actual chipset voltage because no one has given me any advice on that one.
