Hi
I tried to set RAM at 800Mhz and 7,8,7,24, but it's not stable, even with 1,6v (like SPD say) or 1,65v. What kind of problem i could have? The cpu overclock seems to be ok (AMD 965 B.E. @ 3,7 with stock cooler). Anyone can help me?
Thanks

K.

Well if you could list all your hardware exactly we might get a better picture of what the problem is. ;)

I think that your memory is the problem. The motherboard/CPU doesn't seem to like 1600 memory. See this thread :

Yes, i read it just now. So it's a common issue...i hope gigabyte can resolve this with a bios update.
Thank you  :)

Yes, let's hope so but we think it may be a much bigger, more deep rooted problem and if that's the case it will take more than a BIOS update to fix it.
