Bad Module from a TwinX pair


Recommended Posts

I have a confirmed bad module from a TwinX pair of 2700LL modules. Memtest reports numerous errors with only this module in the system. These parts ran fine for approximately 5 months. In a case such as this, do I return both modules, or just the defective one? What can I do to ensure that the new module will be as compatible as the original? Thanks.

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 TwinX512-2700LL

Advanced Chipset

CPU Freq: 133

DRAM Clock: 333 MHz

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.75 Volts

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

Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T

SDRAM Burst Length: 4

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!
