    DDR 3 1.5 V vs. DDR 3 1.65 V

    Actually, I think the problem was the memory. I ended up replacing it with GSkill Ripjaws and my system has been running stable for about a week now (was previously crashing about once per day on the OCZ Gold).

    Will 1333 9-9-9-20 DDR3 work at 1066 with 8-8-8-16 timing?

    It didn't work...I just RMAed the memory. It might be the case that my chipset (G41) is not speced to run at 1333 MHz, but I expect that the memory should run flawlessly at 1066 as my previous memory did. I just bought the GSkill Ripjaws on sale at Newegg. Hope this memory works out...

    Will 1333 9-9-9-20 DDR3 work at 1066 with 8-8-8-16 timing?

    I don't think my motherboard will allow me to change the memory timing, it's an ASUS P5G41T-M LE...looks like a motherboard purchase might be in my future. Edit: I found a switch that allowed me to change the frequency, but I don't see anything that will allow me to change the timing. I'm now...

    Will 1333 9-9-9-20 DDR3 work at 1066 with 8-8-8-16 timing?

    I bought this memory: It's supposed to run at 1333 MHz at 9-9-9-20 timing. However, when I go into memcheck86, I see that it's running at 1066 and 8-8-8-16 timing. Will the OCZ memory run without any issues at 1066 and...

    DDR 3 1.5 V vs. DDR 3 1.65 V

    Thanks for the notes. I have not had any problems at all running the system today. I updated the MB Bios last night and then ran memcheck. Memcheck stated memory was fine and system has been stable. Problem probably had something to do with putting it in suspend.

    DDR 3 1.5 V vs. DDR 3 1.65 V

    I have a Intel Core 2 Quad based system with the G41 chipset on a Asus P5G41T-M LE motherboard. I recently bought this ram: It's spec is 1.65V while my old ram was 1.5V. The memory is called "Low-Voltage" and is the same DDR3...

    Any disadvantage to using PC6400 memory in PC5300 laptop?

    My brother's laptop needs a RAM upgrade. Using Newegg's memory finder wizard returns only PC5300 DDR2 ram modules. PC6400 memory is actually slightly cheaper. Is there any problem with putting PC6400 memory in a PC5300 laptop? I assume that the memory will just run slower, at PC5300 speed...

    Rosetta@Home needs more CPU Power!

    I think BOINC supports some GPU optimizations, but not sure if Rosetta takes advantage of that. They mention that their code changes often and it's a lot harder to change GPU code than CPU code.

    How do I get DVI Output in WinXP on Intel G41?

    My motherboard has Intel G41 onboard graphics and my monitor accepts both DVI and VGA. At startup, the PC is driving the DVI out and starts loading Windows with the DVI output. Before I installed the Intel Graphics drivers, I was able to use WinXP with the DVI out. But after installing the...

    Apple’s 10 Billionth Download Contest Won By 71 Year Old

    Not " be so anal about things" but a lot of people make it past 100. I think the longest recorded human life was around 122 years. And yes, if nothing else kills us, aging will, unless science can intervene at some point. I personally believe that one day it will, but that's a whole other...

    By the way, just to clarify, my comments were not directed towards everyone on the forum.

    Apple’s 10 Billionth Download Contest Won By 71 Year Old

    The humor here has hit a new low. That was an extremely ageist comment. Would you make that same quote, "What would be surprising is if the guy is able to live long enough to collect all those songs." if the contest was won by a terminally-cancer patient? Why would an older person be any...

    Any good software for ripping embedded flash off of websites?

    Refresh Rate - 5 ms vs. 2 ms -- can anyone notice?

    There are a lot of monitors which look good in all other specs, but only have 5 ms refresh rate. Can anyone tell the difference in a monitor with 5 ms refresh vs. one with 2 ms? And I mean really be able to tell the difference as if you could tell which monitor had the slower refresh rate if...

    Intel kills of consumer version of larrabee

    AMD sells x86 CPUs, so how come they have been inferior to Intel for the past several years? It's not about owning all the rights and patents because AMD was making better products for a while back in 2005 (Intel had a bad design with the Pentium 4). But when they fixed the design (really just...

    Intel X4500 or ATI 9200

    I know they both kinda suck, but I currently have ATI 9200 (AGP) and am thinking of getting a motherboard with GMA X4500. The 9200 is definitely older, but the X4500 is integrated. X4500 also has better Linux support which is what I use. But for gaming, which one is better?

    Acer P235 or Samsung 2494SW

    Ok, decided to cancel the order. Reason is because my Samsung monitor is a 2232 SW. Although the contrast on both of those monitors is better, I would be downgrading from 2 ms response time down to 5 ms response. That's too much of a sacrifice.
