SolidSnakeSyd05 Posted November 12, 2004 Share Posted November 12, 2004 Hi I need some help in regards to my A7N8X-E Deluxe MB and Corsair TwinX 3200XL DDR Ram. I have isolated the fault and I know what it is but I cannot seem to fix it. Basically when I set Ram speed to 200Mhz = 400Mhz as (stated by RAM) computer restarts when playing 3D games e.g FarCry in a few minutes, it varies sometimes 5-20mins. But when I Ram speed to 166Mhz = no problems at all. Played for a week for more than 2hrs - no drama. Any Idea what it is?? I have a Amd XP Athlon 3200+ (400 FSB) So I should be able to run Ram 200Mhz correct? I was previously using a 3200C2 and the same thing as mentioned above happened. I returned to shop and got this 3200XL which is higher model, no fix. I dont have a problem running it at 166 - speed is good, im probably not going to see much difference, but I would like to Run it at 400 as stated by the Ram. MAN I PAYED GOOD MONEY FOR IT!! I DIDNT PAY FOR IT TO RUN AT 333 However when I run memtest on both Rams on 166 - no errors. 200Mhz picked up some errors. I have gone to ASUS/RAM GUY they dont seem to be of much help. All they do is copy and paste scripts like they dont give a damn, they do not listen to the problem, they go into all sorts of scenario's and it confuses the hell outta me. Look bottom line is 166 - no probs 200 - restarts. And they cant seem to understand that. Simple, it is not my vid card + power supply (otherwise I wouldnt be able to run it for more than 2 hours) My BIOS version was previously 1011 which ASUS flashed for me because I was having some issues with it - flashed it back to 1006 (First Revision) No fix. Are there any settings I should manually input, as I am aware, if I load Optimised settings on MB, it sometimes gives me incorrect settings. E.g External CPU Freq = 100Mhz??? Like what the.... I have a 3200+ should be 200Mhz. I hope any of you guys can help. Thanks, much appreciated. :cool: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
