BadAxe 2: Kein RAM mit CL5 möglich? (Intel D975XBX2)

2 posts in this topic

Hallo zusammen,


funktioniert CL5 RAM nicht im Bad Axe 2 Board?


Vorher hatte ich 1x 1GB CL4 533MHz Speicherriegel von MDT.

Das war natürlich zu wenig. Also habe ich mir folgenden RAM zugelegt:

4x 2GB 800MHz CL5 von Aeneon.


Mit dem neuen RAM bootet das System gar nicht erst und es erscheint ein rotes Lämpchen auf dem Board.

Es funktioniert auch nicht, wenn ich nur einen Riegel verwende.


Komischerweise startet und läuft das System mit folgender Kombination:

1x der alte RAM (1GB 533MHz CL4 MDT)

1x der neue RAM (2GB 800MHz CL5 Aeneon)


Sobald ein dritter Riegel dazu kommt, startet das System nicht.




Woran kann das liegen? Unterstützt das Bad Axe 2 keinen CL5 RAM?


Danke vorab.

O.K. - nochmal OHNE LINK (habe ich wohl falsch gedeutet - Entschuldigung beim Admin dafür):



YES it will work with CL5!

I run that Intel D975XBX2 Bad Axe 2 - Board with CL5-RAM:


1) Corsair XMS2 DHX 2048MB DDR2-800 PC2-6400U CL5-5-5-18 Kit

(= TWIN2X2048-6400C5DHX • 2x 1024MB Module • 1,8V)


and then I changed to

2) Corsair XMS2 DHX 4096MB DDR2-800 PC2-6400U CL5-5-5-18 Kit

(= TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX • 2x 2048MB Module • nur für 64bit Betriebssysteme!)


3) Also tested both together (2x1GB + 2x2GB = 6GB) only for short interrest one day. After that I used the other old 2 GB in another PC - course I planed to switch to the maximum of 8 GB later.


But I don´t tested it with 8 GB - this seams to be a problem with IDE-kext/-driver... - may be a solution with any of these "JMicron IDE ... patches" ...

So - a few month ago I switched to a Gigabyte EP35-DS4. It will support all 8 SATA-Ports. And since yesterday it run very good with a retrailinstallation 10.5.5.. I am still in tests, but it seams to be that only two things are not near 100%:

- Software-PowerOff will shut down without the fans - there for I need the PowerButton

- Software-Sleep will work inkl. the fans - but to WaheUp I need the PowerButton

- ScreenSafer will comes after 20 minutes "waiting" by ignoring my setings

...and today my Boot-test-from-SoftwareRAID failed... (-:
