    I just spotted this post on your Biostar P35/Core 2 Duo E7200/ 4x 1GB DDR2 1066 Tracers ...

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1510461&postcount=550

    If you bought those Tracers as 2 2GB kits then you might have trouble running all 4GB at the recommended timings. This is especially true running Windows. But if they were a 4GB kit then they should have been tested at there recommended timings.

    you have a point. They are 2gb kits. however default runs them at 800MHz, they are rated at 1066mhz. So I dont know. However you do have a very good point. I only have 2 sticks in now so we'll see.

    I'll make sure to keep you guys posted.

    Running 4 sticks always makes it more difficult to run at spec speeds and timings. It just stresses the board more than 2 sticks. That's usually the only good argument for running 2x2GB sticks, since the best DDR2 IC's come in 1GB configuration.

    yeah im going to run only two sticks from now on, the other two sticks, well. That just makes me want to build another rig and find the RAM a home :D :laugh:

    Try clicking on the driver in device manager, go to updte driver and let windows find them. Thats the only way that I can get my USB wireless drive to work. No other way works, maybe it works for video cards also? :)

    ECC errors that are handled are alright but errors are nothing but bad news. Usually the motherboard or a stick of memory is to blame. Also, something might not have enough voltage to function properly. This is especially true with four DIMMs filled and trying to hold a high clockspeed.

    I got it working. I had to download the driver seperately from the ATI site. I was downloading the CCC file that is supposed to bring the driver also, but I guess it was not. Its all good now :D
    Well, I had loaded defaults when I ran memtest and the ram was even running below rated speed. So overclocking is ruled out there. I have two sticks out, we'll see how it goes.

    Under normal circumstances 512 per core is all you need to crunch WCG, anything else is a waste. I always ran my farm that way with success. Stock timing is sufficient, also.

    yeah you're right. I have two sticks in it now. System is running much better. Going to be doing some stress testing overnight, see how it behaves.

    CP how did the test go? Good I hope. :rockout:

    I've got all four sticks in and running good on the Q9550. I've got them running @ 1066MHz 2.10v, 5,5,5,15 timings. Last night after the fights... I played some COD:WAW and forgot to start WCG back... Usually I run it, but I turned it off until I stress test the ram... Oh well, It's back up and running now. :toast:

    umm I ran them at the overclocked settings and got a whole bunch of errors. So I have only one stick in right now. So far I I am at 3.4 GHz @ 1.23v and stable. I'm stress testing between overclock. Once I get to 3.6 Ghz stable, i'll run memtest again

    well, stable after some linx, and error free in two hours of memtest.


    Here is the result. Done for today. Gotta go take apart the i7 rig to ship out the CPU to its new owner tommorrow. Will be back up around wednesday or so. So my output is going to be a few thousands less for a few days :(
