I'm having some odd memory issues with my build. Here are my specifications right now:
- QDI Superb 4 motherboard
- Intel Pentium 4 Northwood 2.4 GHz (512 KB L2, 533 MHz FSB)
- 3x 256 MB PC2100 DDR266 RAM
- 16 MB NVIDIA TNT2 Pro AGP
- Seagate 80 GB IDE HDD
- Generic USB 2.0 PCI
- Generic Modem PCI
- Bestec 250 W PSU
To be even more specific, here are the current brands and models of each module:
- Kingston KVR266X64C25/256
- Samsung PC2100U-25331-Z
- SMART SM5643285D4N0CHM0H
Supposedly, they are all PC2100 266 MHz modules with a latency of 2.5. Looking in Speccy, the Kingston module is somehow running at a speed of PC2300 ~284 MHz. I've never overclocked RAM at all as I don't know how to.
However, when I first started the computer, I had the SMART module in place first and then reset the BIOS settings, including the integrated overclocking options. However, this still doesn't explain why the Kingston module runs at a higher speed than the SMART and Samsung module.
Why is it like this? On a side note, where could I find the motherboard manual for the QDI Superb 4?
