IC7-Max3 and TWINX1024-4400C25 Prob


Recommended Posts

Recently I built a new system with the following parts:


Abit IC7-Max3 bios ver 1.7

Corsair 1GB TWINX1024-4400C25

Tagan 480watt power supply

Intel P4 3.2Ghz Northwood 16x200


I am having issues getting the memory/system to run reliably above 200mhz (DDR400). I've tried the appropriate dividers to leave the CPU stock while raising the memory to 250 and 275 respectively @ 2.8v


The system will boot with the following settings but reboots after the windows splash screen.


4:5 ratio


CPU default voltage

Mem voltage 2.8 no setting for 2.75

Mem timings set by SPD are @ the approved 2.5-4-4-8


I tried running Memtest86+ v1.30 will the following options

Test All Memory

Extended Tests


On test 8 I received 4110 errors. I rebooted with one stick @ a time and tried to duplicate the error, but have been unable to duplicate with either stick. However, I still cannot get the memory to run anywhere close to its rated speed.


Please help! :[pouts:

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-4400C25

Softmenu Setup:

CPU Freq: 200 (enable for you to run this module at 500MHz you will have to set your CPU at 250 or 275 for 550MHz.)

DRAM Clock: 400 MHz

CPU/DRAM ratio: 1:1

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.85 Volts

System performance: Standard

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


Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 4T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 4T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

USB Legacy Support: Disabled

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!
