    I have PDP Systems PC3200 512MB Dual Channel RAM, rated at 2-3-2-5 T1. This means that with the FSB at 400MHz, this ram should be able to run at 2-3-2-5 right? Right now, these sticks have given me nothing but trouble. I try to put the settings on 2-3-2-5 with the FSB @200MHz (x2, so actually 400MHz) and the system wont even boot up. The fastest settings I can have this RAM on with the FSB @200MHz is 2-3-3-8 (which is what it's set to right now). Do I have a problem here?
    I read in some other guy's post on a different site that he had his FSB @ 215MHz with timings of 2-3-2-8....
    Heat isn't my problem, I have the thermal case sensor shoved right inbetween the heat spreader and a memory chip on the RAM, and I'm getting 90.5 degrees farenheit.
    Is there anything that you can recommend to get this darned stuff to run better? Or is this normal ( :( )?
    Thanks,
    -X

    As long as you monitor your temps closely, you could bump up the voltages a tiny bit.
    P.S. My RAM is @ 2.5-4-4-8 so your timings are pretty fast.

    I see what you are saying. I have just one more question though. If RAM is rated at 2-2-2-5 @ 400MHz, it should be able to run those timings at that speed or else it is "bad" right? In other words, If I had my FSB @ 133MHz with 10x multiplier (nothing overclocked), and the RAM Async (running at 400MHz), it should be able to run 2-2-2-5?
    I have a good feeling I am going to be ditching this RAM for some nice GEIL Golden Dragon PC4000....
