Hi me again.

I got new ram to replace my rubbish geil. I got OC platinum DDR2 533MHZ (EB) revision 2.

I put 1 stick (1gig) into slot 2 and stick 2 (1gig) into slot 4. I got blue screens, one was 0x0000008e, then 7c and c5 I think.

Now that makes me certain that it is the mobo, and only 1 ram slot works. As with the geil, only 1 stick worked in the 2nd slot but games ran with awful fps.

I know the games will work with good fps, even with 1 stick of the ocz ram. as even pes5 had awful fps with the geil. and it was fine with the ocz, except for the games exiting.

asus p5n32sli deluxe
ram as above 1gig in slot 2
pentium 4 lga775 3ghz (oc to 3.3ghz)

Now my dilemma is, the voltage for ram is 2.0v, shd I up the voltage. as games randomly exit to desktop. Game closes completely.

Or shd I run my old pc and RMA the motherboard? As the system runs fine with 1 stick but games exit.

(on a note, my old pc 6600gt is broke so im running an fx5200. it caused bf2 run slow on lowest settings at 800x600 and it froze once. shd I maybe borrow a more powerful card as I am going to i27 (big UK lan) to play in a bf2 competition.)

Thanks very much for all your help with my many problems btw, great job. keep it up. Iv been to here lots recently.

Have you tested the RAM chips in slots 1 and 3 yet?

As for the GFX card, the FX5200 is on par with the MX400 series of GeForce4, so you'll be better offreplacing that one for heavy performance games.

Additionally, you could get your hands on Memtest86 to test the RAM as well.

Report back with what you find from the test and the reseating of the RAM
