Larze Posted November 9, 2004 Share Posted November 9, 2004 two and a half years ago i bought two sticks of Corsair CMX512-3200C2. Last week my system started behaving very strangely, was locking up/pausing/slowed/rebooted when a certain amount of processes were loaded. Suspecting the memory i downloaded a program called memtest 87+. Ran the test first with both sticks in, it found 1 error ar 183MB, and around 800 between 463-483MB (the memory used when system started acting up, programs freezing, reboots etc). I then tested the two sticks individually, and one stick reported the errors again, while the other checked out ok. At the time of those tests my settings were 2T-3-3-6. I then found some info that i should change CAS Latency to 2.5T due me having an AMD system. Ran the memtest 87+ again, and the 1 error at 183MB was gone, but the 800 odd errors between 463-483MB remained. (Failed at test 5 in the program). Running my system with this solo stick in, and it's much more stable now. Mainboard is Asus A7N8X 2.0. Processor AMD XP2200+ /L Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
