    Xentor 32, 6BTM mobo & SPD

    Just installed a Xentor 32 TNT2 Ultra and I've got a problem...
    At boot the CPU will no longer overclock, just the standard 500MHz. I also get a BIOS message "Warning: SPD Not Found at DIMM(s) 2,3,4" i.e. all my DIMM.
    The vid card is AGP 2X and the Chaintech 6BTM mobo is AGP 2X so things should be OK.
    I have installed the latest BIOS for the mobo and vid card.
    Anyone come across this?

    I have this VERY problem and it shows at EMPTY dimm3. I recently installed A Creative TNT2/32 and am thinking that it's a Vid Card problem.

    I'm on the horn with Crucial/Micron about this and will post again when I get an answer.

    I have fixed this - sort of. I changed the
    MoBo for a new Abit BE6 and the problem went away.
    I have heard that this problem is common on
    older MoBos (i.e. over 1 year old!).
    I can now run the Xentor at 175/183 plus
    overclock the CPU to 5x120=600 and its
    rock solid.

    Mobo, huh? OK.

    SPD=serial presence detect. It's from mismatched memory chips. Why installing a new vid card would bring this to light stumps me.

    Since I see no untoward effects and mem is thru the roof right now, I can live with it. I wouldn't want to *try* a new mobo and find out that I require the memory too.

    I have no OC problems...I think this is just a low-level hardware conflict brought on by the TNT2. I also believe that it's simply an error message with no basis in fact.
