ings in tha bios cause i see some thing about better stability ,but as ED-O knows the boards and the barton ,i was just wondering as i have fitted them and they register as 512 in sys properties ,but as the cpu is 2500+ do i have to change for better stability (as im still waiting on correct board),so at the mo i have the K7S5A with Athlon 2500+XP with 512 ddr and i was testing the cpz ,progam and it also come up then correctly but dont undersyand the latency ,bit ,thanks lads if your not to busy ,Cheers again!!!!!!!! and dont forget its running at 266fsb with the barton core.
No there is no need to change it. The eprom chip on the memory will tell the system what latency the memory can run at. The exceptions are that the motherboard can not run the memory at the higher frequecy and latency, so it will drop the latency down so it can run at the higher frequency.
If the system is not crashing and runs smoothly, just leave it.
If it is not;
What speed is your ddr memory?
and the latency is ?
ps never seen a k7s5a motherboard in my life, but have used higher cpu's than motherboards are supposed to take.;-)
oh and by the way it crashes now and again ,where as i never did before ,i mean complete reboot?,sin nvidia and ram ,and the nvidia i have trtied to update it with no joy i say no hard ware detected on the link i was given in the past on th forun ""
Very true ed , that is a very good point ,i totally agree with you ,well mext week i will be getting the right board for it and then i will see ,but, i put the graphics card in after the barton and also with the ddr as well but it hasnt haooened yet but i do editing and all sorts .stuff i would say is pretty heavy for a small desktop ,but bac to the barton ,yes that is a good point mapparently there unlocked thats why it can run at 266 ,did you see the article i posted for you ED-O ? thnaks again
and the graphic seems to have settled down now and before i have awful blue screen crashes and i went to try to play halo 1 and it said that there is awful conflicts with the drivers and to try to up date them for compat ,to hopefully play the game ,but no joy as yet !
