I've got an Epox 8RDA+ rev 2.1 with a pair of BH-6 512MB modules. My problem with this setup is that whenever I run with both modules @ 2-2-2-7 @ 210mhz FSB the system always fail Prime95. Prime95 runs fine with only 1 module.
Now, I understand that first of all, 512mb sticks are higher density than 256mb and thereby making it harder to overclock. I also know that by running dual channel, it somewhat lessen the overclockability.
Now here's the question. Would it help any if I switch mobo? I mean, is this instability at high FSB with 2 modules a mobo related issue? If it indeed helps, then I am thinking of switching to Abit NF7-S or DFI LanParty .....
What do ya think?

Thx,

I have the DFI Ultra Infinity - same MB as LanParty w/o the expensive extras....

Go to www.amdmb.com and ask at the DFI MB forum. Angry_Games is a DFI rep who helps with tech support. He's always posting solutions. The DFI boards are awesome, as is the support!

I wouldn't buy a new motherboard over it. Memory timings mean nothing. That small gain will probably bring 4Fps at best.
