Assus K8N nForce3


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am using ASUS K8N motherbord with AMD Athlon 64 3000Mhz Cpu. I have Corsair VS512MB400 512MB DDR400 PC3200 type memory with this system but system started giving minor errors and then crushed in two weeks. I formatted my pc and re-installed XP but it last in one week this time. Then I used memtest86 to test memory at it gives me a lot of errors.


Your webpage says this memory is compatible with my MB so I don't

know if its the compability problem or its only the memory I that have

has mulfunctions.


I use latest version of bios with default settings, such as;

Memclock Mode- Auto

Memclock Value- 200

Cas Latency - Auto

DRam Ras to Cas Delay - Auto

Dram Ras Prechange Time - Auto

Dram Active Time - Auto


What could be the problem?

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then set the dim voltage to 2.7 Volts with the modules in slots 1-3 or 2-3 and set the timings manually to Cass 2.5-3-3-8:

Cas Latency - 2.5

DRam Ras to Cas Delay - 3

Dram Ras Prechange Time - 3

Dram Active Time - 8

Then please test the system with http://www.memtest.org to make sure it's stable!

I returned my memory to Corsair and they send me a new one. I tested this new memory with memtest and it found 5 errors (even after changing bios configuration to 2.5,3,3,8). Do you think these errors would couse me any problem like the one I sent to Corsair (memstes was showing more than 30,000 errors for my old memory)?
