Long story, please bear with me! I picked up an eMachine with a AMD 3200+ Barton cpu on a FIC AU-31 mobo. It shipped with an advertised 512mb PC2700. But when I did some checking, I found out that the mobo supported a 400MHz FSB and 2 Gigs of ram. And after opening the case, found out the that the RAM's label said PC3200 on it. It turns out that unless you disable the onboard graphics and install a agp video card, all you can run is 333ddr. SO I put in a GeForce FX 5600 Ultra and 2 sticks of Corsair PC-3200 ram, but when I boot up it is reported as 333DDR. And when I check Everest it says I'm running dual-channel 333mhz!!?? The BIOS is locked pretty tight, but I do have the vc clocked decently (running 425/850). And I've got some decent cooling going on. I just can't get the ram speed to come in where it should. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm not a newb, but this has got me stumped. Again......Sorry so long....Thankx!
