wow thats pretty cool, i might upgrade to 4 x 512Mb soon, should i get that or 2 x 1Gb?
2x1gb, so you can upgrade more later on
try to save space
yeah, good idea, but i dont think i'll need 4Gb of RAM for a long time....
it would help a good deal if you would want to put longhorn on eventually, its gonna need alot to run fully and optimally, also it has alot more services, its basically a RAM killer
Is there anything in the BIOS i have to set to make it run at dual channel? because i know both my sticks function fine alone. But when i use slots 2 and 4 for dual channel it crashes to the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I know my motherboard supports the dual channel because its a Lanparty nF4 SLi-DR. I heard you have to change some voltage settings on the ram? any help on this would be great. Thanks
it should work like that at default i believe just when the sticks are the same and are dual channel capable, mine work defaultly like that
try using 1 and 3
if it doesnt work on 2 and 4 that means theres a problem in the motherboard i believe
ill try some stuff then let you know
You probably need to up the voltage a little. I'm not familiar with the RAM itself, but you should be able to go up to 2.8V safely with most RAM. Given Corsair's stance on overclocking, you should be find with a voltage like that. Secondly, the first two BIOS releases for the DFI NF4 motherboards are known to have some serious problems. I would highly recommend flashing to the 3/10 (or later) BIOS to help yourself.
I'd also highly recommend looking over at DFI Street, DFI's official support forum. One of the mods, RGone has a nice BIOS settings guide that you might find helpful for stabilizing the RAM. You'll probably have to search for it, but that's a great forum link.
