rdh_homehotmai Posted November 19, 2004 Share Posted November 19, 2004 Hiya, I have owned a pair of half-gig XMS3200C2PT chips for a while now, which have run happily at stock. I say at stock as I don't overclock. I had one stick fail on me back in March - which you kindly replaced pretty quickly but now I think the other one has gone west on me as well. Only recently I upgraded to a 3200 chip meaning I could (finally) run in sync @ DDR400. Or so I thought. It ran for a short time but I could tell it wasn't happy. Someone introduced me to CPU-Z as a good tool for taking snapshots of how your system is running. I discovered that one of the things CPU-Z displays is SPD timings. The stick I had replaced in March was a.o.k. but the older stick, while showing as the correct part number, showed that it was only rated @ 166Mhz?? Took the stick out and all was fine. So now, if I boot @ DDR400 set memory speed manually, it runs. (Only been running @ DDR400 for two sessions so far so fingers crossed!) If I set by SPD, it keeps falling over. Think I've got another faulty stick. What you reckon? Let me know. Cheers, Rob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
