Need help figuring out matching CPU/mobo/mem, currently runs unstable.?
I'm trying to put together an upgrade, currently unstable: running fine in Linux but Windows XP is not even installable with Blue Screen. Fanning the CPU running at about 40 celsius.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Socket 939 from eBay
ECS nForce3 Socket 939 from eBay
256 megs of PC2100 DDR 266 from an older AMD 2000+ machine, hopefully this is only thing wrong I do have half a mind to get DDR 400 probably 1GB in qty.
I experienced unstability before that prevent Windows from installing, coupled with low heat I suspect unstability again. I realized this is quite obsolete spec but hardcore gaming is not my aim and this question is quite advanced so I want some concrete answers or tidbits with reasons to back it up; not some teen's hotshot answer.

i would say that the dimms are not fully supporting the ddr266 modules. That board fully supports the ddr400 standard. So get a 2x 512 ddr400 setup and you should be fine.

i would be unable to bear in mind any on the 2nd. My answer would be India vs Australia, Sydney attempt 2008 = umpiring decrease than the scanner after some severe profile blunders. & New Zealand vs Australia = Melbourne ODI, 1981 = infamous underarm final ball with the aid of Trevor Chappel while NZ necessary 6 runs.

In my opinion Ccleaner is the number one tool for cleaning your pc. I've been using it for more then a year now and it works very well. You can grab your free copy here http://j.mp/UrAHbv
