Asus A8V (what memory for 2 gigs) ?


Recommended Posts

I went with this memory instead since I saw you reccomend it for other people who have this motherboard. I'm just going to go with 1 gig for now since it seems like 2 gigs can cause problems I guess? I could not find that c2 you listed for the 2048, but I did see the 1048 for that. This 3200XL is good performance and has the lowest latency right, 2-2-2-5? Thanks for everything

These modules will run great and should be in slots 2-4 (A2 and B2) and set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts and then set the timings as listed bellow. In addition if you have a 90nm CPU you will need to get the latest bios from ASUS Ver. 1.006 beta 6 or newer.

CAS Latency CL=2.0

Row Cycle Time tRC Bios Default

Row Refresh Cyc Time tRFC Bios Default

Ras# to CAS# delay tRCD 3 (If it's stable you can try this at "2")

Row to Row delay Bios Default

Min Ras# Active Time tRAS 11

Row Precharge Time tRP 2

Write Recovery Time Bios Default

Write to Read delay Bios Default

Read to Write Delay Bios Default

Refresh Period tREF Bios Default

Enable 2T Timing Disabled

Then test the system with http://www.memtest.org and make sure it's stable! If you have problems, I would set Enable 2T Timings to AUTO and test it again!
