    Well, first excuse for my bad english.
    I have an 8RDA3+ with nForce2 Ultra 400 chipset and 512 Mb of Kingston
    ValueRam PC3200 and they run perfectly separated, but if I try to run them
    togheter, Goldmemory crashes when I analize the RAM and Prime95 crashes too.
    I have tried several combinations: 200x10, 133x15.. and all of them crash.
    (I have an 2400+)

    I´m thinking in sale my mobo and buy another (DFI or ABIT??) or sale my
    memory and buy another (GEIL 2x256 Value CL2.5??) but i dont want to buy
    another ram that neither runs with mi 8RDA3+
    What mobo or ram do you recommend to me?? What model of DFI nForce2 mobos is
    the best??


    "Pensare que el cielo, el aire, la tierra, los colores, las figuras, los
    sonidos y todas las demas cosas exteriores no son sino ilusiones y engaños
    de que el mundo hace uso como cebos, para capta mi credulidad; me
    consideraré a mí mismo como sin manos, sin ojos, sin carne, sin sangre;
    creeré que doy falsamente credito a todas esas cosas; permaneceré
    obstinadamente adicto a ese pensamiento y si por tales medios no llego a
    poder conocer una verdad, por lo menos está en mi mano el suspender mi
    juicio: por lo cual con gran cuidado procurare no dar credito a ninguna
    falsedad y preparare mi ingenio tambien contra las astucias del genio
    maligno que, por muy poderoso y astuto que sea, nunca podra imponerme nada."

  2. Have you updated your bios to the latest revision? I would make sure that
    you have the newest bios and drivers, and then test, before selling the EP

    I have updated bios to the latest version, and it is a little more stable,
    but prime95 crash in 12 minutes :(
    I will update nForce drivers, but I have no hope...
    I will buy 2x256 DDR400 GEIL CL2.5 memory and try with this because I dont
    want to sell this mobo, I´m in love with it, hahaha :p

    I've got a bunch of Epox boards and all of them will run at the speeds you're
    trying to run. You *will* need to raise the memory and processor voltage to get
    it to be *stable* at that speed though. Value Ram doesn't seem to tolerate mix
    and match components as easily as their HyperX does. This message was typed on
    an 8RDA+ with an AMD XP2500+ and HyperX memory with the fsb set at 210x11. Runs
    prime 95 and any other benchmark programs with no problem. The v-core is set at
    1.850 and the memory voltage is set at 2.6V. It would not even boot with Value
    Ram at these settings.
