  1. hello peeps
    i have a a7n8x deluxe rev 1004 with 333 memory
    i am thinking of getting 2 matching pairs of corsair ddr400 ram so i can use the dual memory function on the mobo.
    however i keep reading about problems using the dual ddr400 ram, that it causes instability and that there are problems with clocking the processor to
    200 fsb, my processor is capable of 200fsb by the way.

    do any of the bios updates work for these problems?

    can some kind person advise me on what i should do?

    thanx in advance :confused:

    That revision of that board does not support the 200mhz FSB. You can either get a 2.0 revision or try modded BIOS files. For the BIOS files, have a look HERE & make sure to flash with a file made for your revision of the board otherwise you will render your board useless.

    re.ddr400 ram

    thanx for the advice but how about the ddr400 and dual memory
    i am pretty sure i can sort out the fsb to 200 or near enough ie. 195
    i have done a bios flash before but for a different reason - jumping mouse
    oh upgrading is so much fun - not.

    Well I had myself lots of trouble getting a 3200+ to work with an A7N8X Deluxe (2.0) with dual-channel PC3200. I was tired of the whole issues that I ditched the whole system & went with an athlon64 instead.

    One thing I can advise you is to real all the available threads on the a7n8x on the nForcershq boards, they've helped me a lot.
