my epox 8kta3+ goes to160mhz fsb stable ,I canboot in to windows at 166mhz but my memory and highpoint cant take it WITH ONE DIMM

when i ad another dimm or more I lose overclockability of the memorys down to 140~145 sometimes less depending of the slots im using

both dims are good and tested for 150 cas2/3/3 one goes up to 160mhz cas2/3/3 and the other 150cas2/2/2/

any of you guys with chipsetkt133A and the same problem?

I think you posted the answer. The dimms are not identically overclockable. The best you can hope for is the smallest common denominator. Try reducing cas to 3 or remove one.

Sorry no better answer
