Asus A8V Delux and Corsair xms3500 settings?


Recommended Posts

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): 7T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

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!

and the XMS 3500 modules are CAS 2 not 2.5.

Please advise


Many thanks

Individually, those modules are rated at CAS2. However, with more than 1 DIMM they are not guaranteed to run at those latencies as they were never validated by Corsair to be run as pairs or in dual channel like the other types of TwinX RAM. This does not mean they won't run CAS2 but, RAM GUY gave you some settings to try that will most likely get you up and running stable. Then, you can later tweak from there and probably get your CAS2. If he did not suggest it, I would raise the DIMM voltage up to, but not over, 2.9v. That RAM you have loves voltage.
