Windows 7: Win7 64Bit crasshes with 6Gig Ram, but OK with 5

Using mismatched sticks doesn't always work too well with those boards. The only way you can put 6GB into the 680i is by using unmatched memory sticks. Of course bumping up the NB voltage and the dimm voltage a bit would help, or if you loosen up the timings a notch it might help..

There are lots of tricks for making memory work on those boards but you will be using the bios settings to make it stable.

thanks

yea ive tried loosening timings to 6-6-6-18 and 20 and still no joy

would it be beneficial to maybe buy another 4gig ram the same as what i just put in? would that fix it?

Using matched sticks gives you the best chance of success. More important is the type of memory you use. Some work better in the 680i than others.

For running 8GB with the 680i your best bet would be these. You will need to bump up the NB voltage to help support the 8GB 1.45-1.5 volts SPP at least. Memory voltage adjustments might also be needed. The memory below has by far the best track record for achieving 8GB stable on NVidia boards.
