All made by micron? The last stick of micron i tried on this board caused it to have error's out the wazoo. Try something with hynix chips - corsair is one.

Actually, that was me using the Micron RAM in a K7T Turbo2. Riley0853 was using other brands of RAM. I'm sorry to hear that it didn't work for you; my machine's been very stable so far running F@H and other apps, and Micron RAM has worked perfectly on every other system in which I've used it.

What i found odd is that the stick worked perfect on my Ole Bh7 (died by failed bios flash), and an MSI 645MAX, both times at 333, but here, wouldn't even go at 266.

I'm confused; are you talking about DDR RAM? The MSI K7T Turbo2 is a uses the VIA KT133A chipset with PC133 RAM.

Ah, that explains it. I was talking about PC100 and PC133 chips (I can use both at the same time because my Athlon Thunderbird is the type with the 100MHz bus).

ran both memtest and open gl test and everything checked out fine. have some pc133 ram coming for someone elses machine that i will try in this one. but that won't show until saturday or monday so i'm open to any other suggestions in the meantime. after passing the open gl and the memtest i fired f@h up again this morning (twice). froze up both times after cpu temp got to 48 although it ran for quite a while at 48 the second time.

no joy. the new ram arrived and i promptly installed it and fired up f@h. different ram, same old freeze up. not that i was any high performance crucial or mushkin or pny or anything. just bargin dane elec at a decent price from newegg for someone who was severely under memoried. i'm open to any suggestions. help :(

ps have just noticed that if i open the f@h program and pause it, it still freezes. have done this twice now. isn't this odd considering it's not doing any work?

Try changing the motherboard's drivers - updating everything in essence. Also, maybe it's the motherboard...
