Bad memory module

Recommended Posts

Mobo: Asus K8V Deluxe SE

Processor: Athlon 3200+ 64-bit Newcastle

RAM: 2x VS512MB400


I've purchased this RAM in August and seemed to have little glitchy problems occasionally in Win XP Pro. It seemed to occur more often recently so I ran the new (Nov 11) version of Memtest 86 and discovered that one of the modules was producing errors. I tested this stick individually in both slots and found the same errors while the other stick came out clean. Memtest correctly identified the CAS latencies as 2.5-3-3-6 each time.

Please put the memory module on slot 1 & 3; make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB, and set the following settings on your BIOS;

Advanced Chipset:

Memclock Mode: Limit

Memclock Value: 2:1 (DDR400)

Bank Interleaving: 4/Enabled

Burst Length: 4

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

Hypertransport: 4X

Jumper Free/Frequency Voltage Control:

Spread Spectrum: Enabled

CPU FSB Clock: 200

DDR Voltage: 2.7/2.75 Volts

All other settings should be set to default settings!

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
