I am having the same problem I am using Kinston HyperX DDR2 6400 1gb x 2 just a blinking cursor if I try and do any configuration even if its the same thing the automatic setting shows....
Also I have checked I am running the latest and greatest firmware and drivers for the board, the memory came out of a working ASUS motherboard running its spec'd speed without any problems...
I have the same problem here, but even worse: most of the time I can't even set the memory speed and voltage, just the timings! :-(
Does anybody knows a workaround to this?
I have Patriot Viper RAM rated at 4-4-4-12/2.1-2.2V that I can only use in 'auto' mode at 8-8-8-21!!! :-(
I use BIOS 0154, is there a newer one?
I'm experiencing the same problem.
D510MO with BIOS 0210 (4/29/2010 = latest)
CORSAIR 2GB DDR2 XMS2 PC6400 800MHZ CL5 (1X2GB)
KINGSTON V DRIVE 30GB SSD SATA/300 MLC
The system works fine when using "Automatic setup". CPU-Z shows correct memory timings (5-5-5-18). BIOS however reports 8-8-8-27.
For testing purpose I wanted to adjust memory speed and timings.
When using manual setup 800 MHz, 5-5-5-18, the system won’t boot. Forced to use jumper to revert BIOS settings.
System won't boot with 800 MHz setting even if very relaxed timings are used.
Using 667 MHz, the system boots. Bios reports 800 MHz (and 8-8-8-27) though... CPU-Z cant report memory speed for some reason, but timings are 5-5-5-18. I suspect that the memories are running at 800 MHz SPD...
I also noticed how I sometimes can adjust reference clock and memory voltage, but other times not! Extremely annoying.
Quite disappointing that such basic functionality is broken...
