Can you tell me our modules part# (How To Read the Memory Label) and the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

module part # CMX512-4000PRO (XMS4000v3.1), LOT# 042018-0
Not sure if I´ve found the serial no since my model isn´t listed @ the identification post,, 8 70 584 00190 4


m/b Asus K8n-E Deluxe rev 1.04 (BIOS, tried all offical)
CPU AMD a64 3200+ (NEwcastle core, CG stepping)

All tests where made running the mem in sync with the HTT with only one stick in memory slot1 (ratio 1:1). Since one module outperforms the other, I´ve

simply removed the working module from my system and left the one which I think is broken somehow.


TEST1
2.5-3-3-5-1T @ 200Mhz x 11 = 2200Mhz | FAIL! (my other module fixed this one)

TEST2
3-4-4-8-1T @ 250Mhz x 9 = 2250Mhz | FAIL!
3-4-4-8-1T @ 225Mhz x 9 = 2025Mhz | SUCCESS!


All tests where made running Memtest86 @ 2.7volt. (motherboard max)

XMS4000 modules may not run at Cas 2.5, but maybe Cas 3-3-3-8 will give better results.

same mobo / same problems.
Im currently using bios 1012.001 because i had all sorts of infrequent but random errors on early bios's. so instead of having default HT Ratio on x4, cpu multiplier at 12x and fsb at 200 which gives me my ddr at 333.

Based on 3.4 newcastle (2.4) i put my HT Ratio on x3, cpu multiplier at 10x and fsb at 240 which now gives me my ddr at 400.

It was like this for a couple of months with no probs.

but now i have it oc,ed with an increase of 260 fsb, memory settings all on auto but mem volts at 2.8 (later rev boards only reach 2.8), memory is at 416. Smooth running so far on games like serious sam 2 and cod 2. Imo oc this mobo, it can oc very well

All revs earlier than 1.05 are limited to a vcore of 2.7, so you´r lucky to be able to reach a impressive 2.8! ;)

T1 timings using two dimms on a socket 754 board seems to be bye bye n away!
