bad stick?


Recommended Posts

i have a (well 2, but only 1 has a problem...) sticks of (sticker says:)


value select





it has been working fine with my other stick of same thing, 200mhz, 8-4-4-3 are the timings

basically what happens, is that after putting it in, it works seemingly fine then windows starts reporting memory errors, then on bootup instead of 1 gig, it finds alot less. exact numbers, i don't remember and didn't write down, i can put it back in and get them for you.

i ran memtest86, and it failed with just that stick running 166mhz 8-4-4-3, the other stick passes at 200mhz 7-3-3-2.5... so i think the stick is bad

but yeah, if you want i can run memtest86 again with that stick and give you the exact results





and i'm running a barton 3000+ on a abit nf7-s rev2 mobo.

Please set the memory Frequency at 100% or 1-1 with your CPU and test them again. If you try to run the memory at DDR400 and your CPU at 333 MHz it will cause a bottleneck in the chipset and may generate errors that are not the fault of the memory.


CPU Freq: 166 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 166MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 7T
