    Hey guys, I just mated an is7 with Kingston hyperx KHX3200K2 2x512 at
    cl 2. Windows 2000 will not install with a variety of bsod crashes.
    Using 1x512 the install goes a wee bit farther. What a
    disappointment. Now im thinking about ditching the abit.

    did you try upping the DDR voltage to 2.7 or a little higher? take it off
    By SPD for the ram timing under Advanced Chipset settings and set it to the
    highest settings (slowest) and see if it is stable and then see how low you
    can go back down until you loose stability.

    Start by relaxing the timings. Raise the CAS to 2.5 or 3. Also try flashing
    to the latest bios for the IS7, updates expanded ram compatibility. Don't
    know what the Kingston uses, but there have been reports of problems with
    ram using Winbond CH-5 chips on a number of Springdale and Canterwood

    Had to rise the DDR voltage from 2.6 to 2.7 as well before I could
    install Windows XP on the Abit IC7-G board with 2 x 256MB Kingston HyperX
    PC3200. With Windows 98SE I didn't had that problem.

    My Kingston pair are value RAM with Samsung chips
    at CL3, budget I know but they work great on my IS7,
    all the speed I need. DDR 400, optimized for dual channel.

    Hi, I bumped it to 2.65 and so far it has not crashed. I will give it
    some rigurous testing tomorrow. Thanks!

    Welp, it isnt stable at 2.65. I don't really feel like running at 2.7
    volts or cas3. I'm going to return the kingston and abit. Thinking
    about a mushkin asus matchup. I can't believe these 865 boards are so
    picky about the ram. Sigh.

    Have you tried either suggestion to see whether it solves your
    problem ?? Maybe you have a dud CD-ROM, or................ ?

    And I don't 'really feel' like getting out of bed some days
    Oh goody...... and the Asus uses which P4 chip-set ?? SIS ??

    The 875 or 865 (or any other chip-set) are "picky" about ram if the
    purchaser does not do the requisite <technical> research before
    his/her ram purchase...... The brand-name of the RAM becomes
    important only AFTER determining the correct timing choice(s).

    Anybody can build a PC.without an appropriate level of technical
    research..........NO !! At least not a reliable, high-performance
