Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/Optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-3200XL

CPU Freq: 133 MHz (266 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Resulting Frequency: 133 MHz (266 FSB)

Memory Timing: User Define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 2T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI 9200 or 9600 then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

All other settings are motherboards defaults

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!

ok i will try this tonite,

anyway the cpu worked for more than 2 months with fsb >= 200Mhz with my previous modules (pc3200 c2pt) even if it is fsb 166Mhz ;):

Btw, i ran memtest for 12 pass and i had more than 4000 errors. What i wanted to say in the first post is that firsts errors appear in the first pass


thank you
