    Default RAM compatibility...bios setting?

    Hello everyone, ok here is my problem, I have two sets of ram one is OCZ (2 x 2G and the other is CORSAIR (12 x 1G. The problem is that whenever I put both sets together my pc wont start. My motherboard is Abit IP35-E. The specs of the RAMS are given below:

    Corsair
    Memory Size 2GB DDR2 SDRAM
    Input Voltage 1.8V DC
    Number of Modules 2 x 1GB
    Product Line XMS2
    Memory Speed 800MHz DDR2-800/PC2-6400
    Module Configuration 128M x 64
    Product Name XMS2 2GB DDR2 SDRAM Memory Module
    CAS Latency CL5

    OCZ
    Type 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
    Capacity 4GB (2 x 2G
    Speed DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
    Cas Latency 5
    Timing 5-4-4-15
    Voltage 2.1V
    2.2V EVP

    Can someone please tell me what settings in the bios should I change to get both of them working together? Thank you.

    Use one or the other. DO NOT mix them up, you just asking for trouble.

    ......and the reason why?...each is designed to run at a different voltage.

    Thanks to both of you. Well at least now I know a bit about the trouble the RAM was causing. I guess I'll get another pair of OCZ then.

    Just to reiterate, even buying an "identical pair" is not any guarantee that you will get them working at spec volts and timings that is why you will see matched sets of 4 sticks of ram available from some vendors as these are guaranteed to do so.
