RAM too fast / RAM incompatibility
i recently got a 256DDR (i think its a kingston) slab for my ECS K7S5A. Then some games would crash -- i heard its something about RAM to motherboard incompatibility or something like my ram is too fast for my MB to handle .. i dont understand this. can i have some enlightenment?
as you know a K7S5A has 4 DIMM slots -- 2 for SD and 2 for DDR. With SD, no problemo! DDR presents the problems. Secondly, happens only to some games like activision's spiderman and warcraft III.
what i do to remedy the problem is to set the MB/RAM freq to 100/100 instead of 133/133 ... thus, its really an MB-RAM compatibility and speed thing?
thanks once again in advance for your insights!
