    Has anyone owning this board managed to get 4x1gb sticks of RAM to run successfully with 1T enabled?

    As I've heard rumours that you can do this.

    I asked this in the owners thread a while back but never got an answer.

    I'm thinking of upgrading to this board from my original SLI-DR to gain the extra space between the PCI E slots for a future watercooling project. Plus an extra available PCI slot (in case PhysX card ever take off)

    If these boards can run the above config then this will seal the deal!

    Cheers.

    The manual says...
    Q: Why won't the system boot when 4 single side DIMMs are
    used?
    A: Normally, the memory timing is set at 2T but to enhance system
    performance, the default memory timing has been fixed at 1T
    (Command Per Clock: Enabled). Therefore if you use 4 single side
    DIMMs, the load will exceed the limit (DDR 400). Please refer to
    the steps below to solve this problem.
    1. Set the "DRAM Voltage Control" field (in the Genie BIOS
    Setting of the Award BIOS) to "2.8V".
    2. Set the memory timing to 2T by selecting Disabled in the
    "Command Per Clock" field (in the Genie BIOS Setting of the
    Award BIOS).


    It also shows a chart with all DIMMs populated the memory is DDR333 with double sided sticks.

    Look at DFI street for threads like this.

    Cheers,

    Busy at work today so not had chance to search the DFI Street forums.
    Thought I could get a quick answer here.

    *edit*

    For anyone else who's curious about this, there is a good thread on DFI Street here
