TWINX1024-3700PT won't even boot at 200mhz!!!!


Recommended Posts



I am currently running an Athlon XP 3200+ (11x200MHZ FSB) with a DFI NFII Ultra Infinity Motherboard. I have a pair of TWINX1024-3700PT and I also have a pair of Corsair Value Select chips. First of all, the Value Select chips work perfectly with my setup in Dual Channel mode. However, when I use the TWINX1024-3700PT, my motherboard won't work at the 200MHZ FSB setting in Dual or Single Channel mode. I have made ever possible effort to make these chips work. Do I get an RMA? 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 TwinX512-3700

CPU Freq: 200 MHz (400 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Resulting Frequency: 200 MHz (400 FSB)

Memory Timing: User Define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 3T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 4T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 4T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) 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!

Memtest failed for both sticks. They couldn't even pass test 1. I used the settings you specified except for the memory speed because the system won't boot up at pc3200 speeds. I get the memory error beeps if I try. The motherboard BIOS is up to date. I've tried everything. I'm positive it's the sticks.

If memtest86 found problems or errors on both memory modules by testing the modules one at a time on your system, then I will suggest you to look at other hardware/peripherals installed on your system. I do not think the problem is coming from the memory modules! No manufacturer can produce 2 identical products at the same time that will be bad.
