TWINX1024-3200C2 in an MSI K7N2 Delta-L


Recommended Posts

Is Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2 supposed to run at CL3 in an MSI K7N2 Delta-L?

I have an MSI K7N2 Delta-L MB that was running an Athlon XP 2400+ with my TWINX1024-3200C2, and SPD was reading the timings at something like 3-2-2-6 @133Mhz(if I remember correctly). I let the CL3 slide since the other timings were low. Well now that I've upgraded the processor to an Athlon XP 3200+, SPD reads timings of 3-4-4-8(200Mhz). It's not stable at that timing though(even at 2.7v), I have to bump it up to 3-6-6-11 to be stable. I have tried it with either single stick, and with both. I also have some TWINX1024-3200XL which runs perfectly at 2-2-2-5 in that board.

Is TWINX1024-3200C2 just THAT crappy in AMD systems, or is it possible I have 2 bad sticks?

Yes, I am using the latest BIOS. (5.8)

Here is the info that is on each sticker:





XMS3200 512MB 400MHz CL2

Is this particular revision poor quality? I have Corsair Value Select memory that was much cheaper and performs much better.

Anyone else have an MSI K7N2 Delta-L?

I would try and load setup defaults and then set the following timings and test the modules one up:

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 200MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

And you can use http://www.memtest.org to test the modules.

If you find errors, lets try replacing them.

Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
