No DDR333 Option on MSI 845G ?
« on: 26-July-02, 11:11:48 »

I bought this board thinking that it supports DDR333, and was listed on toms hardware i845G review as having DDR333 support. HardOCP also has a screenshot of the BIOS with DDR333 as an option. In fact, MSI's own printed manual says DDR333 is selectable.

However, the only options I have found for memory frequency is DDR200 and DDR266. What happened to the option?

Maybe your ram isn't PC2700?

My RAM is a Kingston ValueRAM PC2700, which should run at DDR333. In fact, my BIOS says it has a CAS latency of 2 when I used the auto-detect mem option, not the slower 2.5 which I initially thought it had.

Does your i845G board have the DDR333 option? I wonder if I got a defective motherboard. I flashed my motherboard with the latest BIOS and I still dont have the DDR333 option.

I have it set at SPD, and it is saying that the memory is CAS 2.

I checked the label on the memory stick and it does say PC2700, so I dont think the memory is the problem.

I would also like to have my ram set at 166mhz and not 133.  I was under the impression that the motherboard would run 333 ram without having to overclock.

I e-mailed them about this a week a go and still have had only the confirmation response that they recieved the e-mail.


Sigh.  For a first time MSI buyer this does not make me happy. :(
