SPD not as advertised


Recommended Posts

purchased two sets of TWINX512-3200C2 from here http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=20-145-451&depa=0


It is installed in an Abit av8. The timing is advertised as 2.5 3 3 6 for this application. However, choosing SPD in for memory detection shows timing of 3 3 3 8. CPU-Z also shows these values for SPD (see attached). If I manually set the timing at 2.5 3 3 6 the system is not stable.

Tried 3 3 3 6 at 2.8 volts - works fine


Problems start when I change the command rate to 1T


3DMark5 and games crash


System is amd64 3500 and gigabyte 6800gt on abit av8.


Other than the memory voltage now set at 2.8volts, everything else is set at default (FSB=204)

Wired is correct, and many MB makers suggest DDR333 when using more than 2 modules. However, we have tested this MB and many others in our lab, with 4 modules you will need to run at 2T timings. Sorry but that is a limitation of the memory controller. In addition I would set the dim voltage to 2.7 Volts as well as you will need to consider your PSU, as it will take about 48 Watts just for the memory with 4 modules.
