Torque Posted November 8, 2004 Share Posted November 8, 2004 I have two sticks of CMX512-2700LLPT that have given me nothing but grief since I have had them. I purchased them because of their Low Latency (specified to be 2-2-2-5, which it says even on the stick!). However, I have gone through two motherboards with these boys, and with both, I was unable to run them at 2-2-2-5, as when I did, my computer would ALWAYS crash and blue screen (I had to run them at a lower speed, 2.5-3-3-6). My old board was an Abit NF7-S, and my new board is an Abit AN7. Anyway, lets get to the problem. My HDD died, so I decided to upgrade everything before I started anew, including updating the BIOS on my AN7 to the latest version. When I did this, it made my RAM unusable! When I was in XP setup (still the Blue Screens, not even to the part where you get a mouse), I would get random BSOD's, or setup would die, claiming that it could not copy a file off of the CD properly. I know, you would claim its the CD, HDD, or CD-ROM, but I tried switching out all 3 to no avail. On a last whim, I borrowed a buddy's Kingston HyperX PC2700 512 Stick, and it instantly fixed the problem, and my PC is running flawlessly! The best part is that the Kingston is running at 2-2-2-5, whereas my Corsair would NEVER do that! Is my RAM bad? Is there some compatibility issue between Abit boards and my RAM? Or, do these sticks just not like NForce boards? I could not find on the list of RAM that Corsair makes a PC2700 stick in 512MB that is 2-2-2-5. Did they stop making these more a reason.....?? Please help me! I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks, James Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
