Random lock-ups on KT7-R system

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Jason Richardson, Sep 25, 2003.

  1. I have a Duron 600 OC'ed to 900 in this board with 2 128MB sticks of Mushkin
    CAS 2 and one 256MB stick of Mushkin 1.5. I have been trying to tweak my
    BIOS to get the best speed out of my memory but I have found that if I run
    with HCLK+PCICLK (for PC133 RAM with an FSB of 100MHz which I have) and all
    three DIMMs in place, I can't make it through the 39th out of 39 tests run
    in PCMark 2002 or play 3d games without locking up. Setting Delay DRAM Read
    Latch to .5, 1, or 1.5ns seemed to help and got me through the benchmark but
    3d games still hang intermittently. Pulling one stick out appears to
    resolve the issue completely even with Delay DRAM Read Latch set to Auto.
    Any suggestions for running all three sticks of RAM other than rolling the
    BIOS back from A9 to 3C (I'm reluctant to do that for fear of corrupting my
    RAID array).
