Jabbah Posted November 16, 2004 Share Posted November 16, 2004 Hi all, having some problems with one of my sticks of ram, any advice would be aprieciated. TIA, Jabbah. System: MSI Neo Platinum Athlon64 3400+ TWINX1024-3200XLPRO GF4 4600 2 x Maxtor HDD Sony DVDRW Problem: I experienced a couple of crashes and managed to track the problem down to the memory. With everything set to auto the memory is set to 2-2-2-5 (1T) @2.7v. SuperPi and prime95 displayed errors quite quickly. Running memtest gave many errors. I tried both sticks seperately, one ran perfectly at 2-2-2-5 (1T) @ 2.7v the other gave many errors under memtest. Upping the voltage to 2.75/2.8v did not solve the problem and the timings had to be raised to 2-3-2-11 (2T) @ 2.8v before the ram would run without error. All other performance options were disabled. Now happy as I am to get the machine running at stable settings, the performance hit in SuperPi and prime95 is close to 10% :bigeyes: These are meant to be matched pairs so I would have thought they should be of similar quality and performance. Having to run relaxed settings and 2.8v at ddr400 does not bode well for any overclocking I may wish to do in the future either. Is there anything else to try or should I request an RMA?
