Hi Everyone,
I just built a new computer and installed all my hardware and OS. I am having problems with my DDR2 ram. My motherboard supports DDR2 up to 533 mhz. I have one gig(2x512) of OCZ gold 400 mhz, and one gig(2x512) of Geil installed. My motherboard supports up to 4 gigs and is dual channel. My motherboard detects all the ram but when i do things on my computer it keeps restarting itself. I moved the ram around and it still did the same. So i put the Geil in alone and the problem is still there. I put the OCZ's in and my computer is fine. It doesnt make sense. I don't think the Ram is broken. Can anyone help a confused guy out?? It driving me nutz :thumbsup:

Have you checked that the RAM is on the motherboards Qualified Vendors List. Many motherboards are very picky.
