Bad Memory Module: CMX512-3200C2PT


Recommended Posts



I Bought a Pair of CMX512-3200C2PT Memory modules a little over a year ago, and ONE of the module is BAD. I would get errors, crashes, blue screens, etc when using this module ALONE or with the other Pair. I tried placing the BAD Memory in different Slots with no success. The Other Module works perfectly.


My Motherboard BIOs is updated with the latest version, tried Default/Optimized BIOs settings, tried loosening up the timings, ran Memory tests from http://www.memtest.org numerous times(getting errors ofcourse). I'm currently using the Other working module from the pair with no problems at all.


Here are my PC specs:


CPU = P4 3.0E 'Prescott' 1MB L2 cache

Mobo = MSI 865PE Neo-2PFS (with latest BIOs and Chipset drivers)

PSU = Antec 430W truepower

Sound = Audigy 2 (latest drivers)

Video = Ati 9700Pro (latest Drivers)

Memory = Pair of CMX512-3200C2PT (1 Bad ofcourse)


I would like a replacement for the same type. Thank you.

Please make sure you have the latest BIOS installed in your MB and load optimized/optimal default settings, and try the following BIOS settings.;

Advanced Chipset:

DRAM Timing

Bank Interleaving: 4/Enabled

Burst Length: 8

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

Frequency Voltage Control:

Spread Spectrum: Enabled

CPU FSB Clock: 200

DDR Voltage: 2.7/2.75 Volts

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

All other settings should be set to default settings!

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!
