    It's been a while since I last built a Shuttle and wanted to confirm something.

    Firstly, having two Corsair sticks in at once causes it to blue screen a lot and generally make a nuisance of itself. Is this the Shuttle being picky about what it eats, or is there a simpler solution to this? I couldn't see anything in the BIOS particularly related to my problem, so that's why I thought I'd ask here.

    Any suggestions?

    With my experiences the SN45G hates all ram, I have tried so many stick with the one i used to have and it was always unstable. Thats why shuttle pulled the SN45G off the market.

    When I built my shuttle I also had issues with Corsair ram. In the end I just went for a matched pair of OCZ. That solved the problem.

    Crucial works fine and as overclocking is very limited I see no reason for going for fancy ram.

    What kind of voltage are you feeding the Corsair? usually corsair specs their ram for 2.8v stock. ... or is it one of those shuttles that selfdestructs when you try and change the vdimm? :lol:

    It was just running at Auto. I shall poke it some more and suggest to my friend that he might stick it up to 2.8V.

    Does anyone know if Patriot RAM has issues with Shuttles?

    The V3 shuttle had it's Vdimm option disabled to prevent frying the motherboard so he should be okay. AFAIK, 2.8V is the standard setting for 45G.
