Re: PC2-8500 OCZ's upgrade showing only 667Mhz in my XPS 710

   I ran the exact memory you have listed on my XPS 700 with the latest bios @ 800MHz., and with EPP enabled, it ran @ 1066MHz.

 

   Do you have the latest bios installed?  XPS 1.4.1 system BIOS

   Maybe I am mistaken, I think it ran @ 800MHz, not 1066. I went back through my clips and can only find 800MHz. And this was on an XPS700, you would think the 710 would support it.

 

 

  and this was with EPP enabled in the bios.

I found a solution..OCZ has a flash program called Spd-z. Basically you can reprogram the memory. Anyways, I just reflashed the memory, restarted the computer and tad dah.. 800 Mhz.

 

Gdwrnch and all, thanks for taking the time to help me out.l

  Yes, that was a mistake when I said 1066Mhz, it was 800MHz on the 700 board, and 1066MHz on the 720 board.

Gotta say, the system is running really well at 800mhz. Couldn't imagine 1066....

on my abit ip35pro,,,,pc6400 runs faster than pc8500,,,so just because if faster ram,,doesn,t mean the chipset will take advantage of it..

I couldn't agree more,  pc6400@800 is huge and runs smother and faster then pc8500@1066 on my Xps 710.  Spd-z by OCZ btw is the solution to this problem and the 590 chipset will run @ 1066 but in my opinion isn't worth it.  I went with OCZ pc6400@800 and never looked back; my system runs completely smooth.  The reason why we have so many issues is that Dell won't open the bios for us, since handling this issues is much easier when you go through bios and not Ntunes which works but just isn't the program that it needs to be for a Smooth Stable OC or Voltage, etc. adjusments.   If your still running @ 667 then I would call your memory manufature and once you wade through the wait line they tend to be able to walk you through many of the steps since most have delt with Dell Xps system issues.
