There must be more people out there who have had problems running memory over pc2100. Ive slowed my memory down in the bios, but I want to hear from other people who've had problems, and got around them with some other methods. Ive posted a few threads, but don't seem to be getting much of a response.

if you made sure that your thread title accurately described your problem.

What sort of problems, 2700 + has been out a while now and is the norm.

Ive posted a few different threads with normal titles, but no-one seemed to give any insight. My problem is if playing a game while running at 2700, 166 in bios, the game im playing will just shut down and send me back to the desktop. I put my memory speed down to 100 in bios, And the game didn't crash. Im wondering if any other factors that make up the pc, can be causing the problem. my motherboard can supposedly handle ddr400 & ddr 333.

iceman,

if you drop down to 100 from 166,does it drop you processor down as well, it does on mine when dropping down from 133 to 100.

This knocks of a few degrees from the cpu temp, so perhaps its not your memory but rather you cpu is over heating ??

Good point about temp.

I had a similar problem with a pc I built using a PC Chips 841 mobo. It would freeze running at 133 but ok at 100. Found out it was a faulty mobo in the end.I tried everything!!

My processor is a P4 2.667, which runs at 41c which is just a bit less than my brothers 2.533, I think ill have to do more testing.

try putting heatsinks on your RAM chips.

Maybe adjusting your ram settings will help.

i'm kinda confused, do you mean your PC2100 runs at 166 or 266???

Mine runs at 266 but i've clocked it to 278 but had to put ramsinks on the modules to clock it.

166Mhz is awfully low for PC2100.

I go with Mysticnas. It should be 266.
