    I recently brought a 1GB Dual Channel Kit of Geil Ultra-X 2-2-2-5 Nforce4 Edition.

    My problem is that the memory fails to boot into windows at them timings and i either get a BSOD or Instant Restart when loading windows.

    I know its not the motherboard or any other componant as i have tested it on 2 differant motherboards and the same problem occurs. I also tryed my Geil ONE Memory with the 2-2-2-5 Timings on my current MSI K8N Diamond and it boots into windows fine where as the Geil Ultra-X Dosnt.

    If there anything i have missed that could be causing the Geil Ultra-x To be blue screening? or is it genuinly faulty?

    i have tryed up to 1.8v but it shouldnt be the problem as the memory is rated at 2-2-2-5 at 2.55v.

    I had the same problem with this memory on a K8N SLI Platinum board. Changed the timings to 2-3-2-5-1T(Cas# to Ras# set to 3) and after that they were rock solid. Also had them running at 2.8v. Although they weren't at stated timmings of 2-2-2-5, didn't see any difference with them at 2-3-2-5.

    Send em back and get some Corsair stuff.

    Just out of interest if you got Geil ONE why did you get some 'slower' Geil Ultra X?
