Incompatible smbus

I was getting incompatible smbus on my MSI 648 (SIS) mob, but running CPU-Z first seems to open the path and allow read and write access to SPD!

Can anyone explain why my motherboard wants to keep using tRAS of 7 even after I bump the SPD value to 8? Only 256MB DDRs with an SPD tRAS of 7 work at 400 MHZ. All the larger sizes have a tRAS of 8 and only work at lower speeds. Any suggestions on how to make the motherboard use the value of 8? Even increasing it to 9 does not work.

I don't know how , I haven't test it yet . I just write on my sticks only.
That I waiting for MOBO shipping a few day :laugh:
I got it working, but there are a lot of strange things, some settings get selected from SPD (tRC, tRFC), some settings from EPP (CL,tRCD,tRP,tRAS) and some seem selected by bios (CR, tRRD, tWR, tRTW, tWTR). :confused:

My board didn't boot because the bios keeps selecting 1T so I loosened the other timings and it works now.

Bios: All AUTO

EPP SPDTOOL:


SPD/EPP Everest:

Chipset timings Everest:

Problem after changing firmware

I have two sticks (2x 512) of OCZ PC3200 GOLD VX PC3200 (winbond utt). Then I bought 2x512 of Mushkin PC3200 Blue CL2 but my system detected only 1gb. I searched in the forums and discovered that both sticks have to be the same CAS SPD in the firmware(ocz was 3 and mushkin 2). So I downloaded SPDTOOL and changed mushkin to 3. Finally the system booted with 2gb. But the two modules from mushkin dissapeared from everest and now there´s a module 7 in SPDTOOL. What went wrong ? How can I solve it ?
