Troublle w memory on v3-250


Recommended Posts

Using Corsair Twinx1024-3200XL on Chaintech v3-250 with Athlon 64 3000+ mb. System crashes with both sticks installed; works fine with only 1 (512MB). Either stick works in Bank 1. Using second stick in Bank 2 or 3 makes no difference. BIOS is current; no help from mb manufacturer. Any ideas?

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;

TwinX512 or TwinX1024-3200XL

CPU Clock: 200

Memory Clock: 200 or 400MHz

CPU/DRAM ratio: 1:1

Spread Spectrum: Enabled

DDR Voltage: 2.7/2.75 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

Advanced Chipset:

Memclock Mode: Limit

Memclock Value: 2:1 (DDR400)

Bank Interleaving: 4/Enabled

Burst Length: 4

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

Hypertransport: 4X

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!

Thanks for the tips. I changed the timings manually to 2-2-2-5 and set the DDR voltage to 2.7; ran memtest twice. Everything seems to work fine.

I noticed Ram Guy recommended setting AGP voltage to 1.6v for ATI 9200 or 9600. What about ATI 9800 Pro? Make any difference, now? :):
