Ram frequency question.
Hi and thanks for taking the time to see if you can help!
Just built new system;
2x1GB Geil 800MHz 18.104.22.168
2x80GB Samsung Spin Point (Running in Raid0)
QTechnology 400W silent PSU
The ram appears to not be running at 800MHZ. It shows up in Easytune5 as 665Mhz
I changed this to 800Mhz in easytune5 in windows, and this is where my problems started.
On reboot my comp would get to the stage of the loading blue bar.. where it went accross 3 times... but then it just shut down without getting into windows. (DOH)
So.. I thought... no problem... just enter bios and change it back! So i did... but on reboot this time i didnt even get as far as the loading blue bar!)... instead recieving a message along the lines hard drives "device is inactive"... (sorry cant remember exactly)
So... i thought possibly a problem with RAIDsetup. Went into Raid bios... i could see the 2 hard drives, but the writting was in red and said again... "device inactive"...
I scratched my head. . .
since i only installed it yesterday and had no valuble data on it i just went about reinstalling windows, once again, using the floppy disk... to prepare Raid0 and then into windows agian.
So... could anyone tell me what happened... what i did wrong...
I wouldlike the Geil ram to run at its designed speed.... i know this is possible...
Any help and advice would be much appreciated!
