Default I think I blew my sticks!

Of RAM you Perves LoL..anyway i accidently touched the MB with some metal while it was running. It was right next to the ram and I also touched part of the ram. The part of the board I touched were the little circuits with C### and R### lables right by the edge. Well now I'm getting an alarm in ABIT EQ showing my DDRtt is only .72 while my DDRcc is normal at 2.6 anyone know if they DDRtt should be the same as the DDRcc? I'm guessing it should because now i cant OC the ram at all. Did I screw up the board or just the ram? Thanks for any info

MB - Abit IS7-E2G; CPU - P4 3.0e Prescott now at 3.5 with Cooler Master HYPER 6; Ram - 1024 Xerox pc3700 pushed to the max

Sucks, I did the same thing with the tip of the multimeter testing for voltages =/

Well, only way to really tell is to put the memory at stock speed and timings and run memtest86+ to see if you're getting errors, preferably in another motherboard if you have one since that one may be screwing with the RAM voltages.

Don't know about the DDRtt though.
