DDR 3200 Ram on Gigabyte MoBo

  POP 19:56 08 May 2003

I have just replaced my 7DXR MoBo with a 1.33 amd processor,and 512Mb of 2100 DDR ram, For a 7VAXP Ultra MoBo, 512Mb DDR PC3200 ram, and a 2400+ amd processor. The BSOD appears after about ten minutes with a different fault message each time saving the comp. from a fate worse than death. Replace the Ram with the 2100 and everything is fine. Any help would be thankfully received. POP

I am using the same motherboard with the same ram and processor configuration as you and have had no problems what so ever. What so you mean by BSOD?

From POP To jasg. BSOD is Blue screen of death. What is your CK RATIO and SW1 set too? Please, POP

ok i have just taken my pc apart to check this so i hope its aprreciated! I have switch 1 set to off, the ck ratio switchs are all set to off which is the auto detect setting for the processor. switch one in the off position is for a front side bus of 266/333 in the on is 200 so yours should be off. let me know how you get on and if i can help further?

Thanks jasg I do appreciate your efforts. My switches were as yours, so I am looking for something else. Perhaps Crucial where I bought the ram can help. Thanks for your help POP

yeah sounds to me that the memory is shot good luck, as a side note i bought the cheapest i could get think i paid about 2 x 35 for two 256mb modules, but i am very pleased with the motherboard to date its been the most reliable machine i have built to date had it about three months so far and touch wood not a single crash and thats on win 98 as well!
