    SN41G2 ... Are there still issues?

    Hi everyone,

    Been away for some time and I was wondering whether there are still issues when building the SN41G2... (in terms of memory and cpu)

    Thanks for a reply.

    Memory = very fussy. You need good memory.

    CPU - not heard of any problems. You can't change ANYTHING except the fsb though if you want to overclock.

    My Shuttle I just build for someone (SN41G2 in Black) with an XP2400 and 1 x 512MB TwinMOS PC3200 memory was unstable as hell using onboard graphics, crashed all the time, garbage on the screen when moving the mouse etc. So I installed a Radeon 8500 in the AGP slot and it's completely stable now.

    From what I remember, they like Samsung Memory And my old one used PC2100 Crucial memory without a hitch. The onboard graphics just would not work with 1 x 512MB TwinMOS memory at all. Darn. But the 8500 is far better... and only cost £35 second hand, bargain!

    Thanks for the replys.

    Are Crucial memory sticks well recognised by the Shuttle SN41G2?
    Is there any list of memory brand I should look for?

    The shuttle I've just built with TwinMOS PC3200 is rock solid with an AGP Graphics card, but if you plan to use the onboard graphics, the computer wouldn't let me doing anything without artifacts appearing on the screen, then it locking up and randomly restarting.

    In my old one I had 1 x 256MB PC2100 Crucial memory, and it was perfect, with onboard graphics too. However, from what I have read (when trying to find out why the one I just build was crashing) they are very fussy with memory brands, and Samsung is believed to be the best combination.

    Hope this helps
