unnamednewbie13 Posted December 3, 2004 Share Posted December 3, 2004 System Stats: Thermaltake Silent Purepower 560W MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum *7025 v1.2 bios AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL (CMX512-3200XL XMS) - 2x512MB Sticks BFG 6800 Ultra O/C *nVidia 66.93 and 67.02 drivers have been tested; 67.03 is available but only addresses an nVidia 6600 issue over 67.02. DVD-ROM BDV212B WDC WD740GD-00FLA0 (primary hard drive) WDC WD2000JD-00HBB0 (secondary hard drive) Issue: Random Software Crashes & Sytem Reboots The TwinX's boot at CAS Latency 2T, tRCD 2, tRP 2 and tRAS 5. Memory voltage has been tested within a range from 2.5V to 2.7V. With them installed, this fresh installation of Windows is having plenty of glitches. When the video is stressed (during Doom 3 benchmarking, etc.), it will either crash to the desktop, or momentarily flash a blue screen of death before rebooting. During large segments of file transfers from one drive to the other (installations, backup restorations, etc.), the system will reboot without warning. Installed in a non-Dual Channel format (1-3 / green-green), they downgrade to DDR333 but are more stable, though quite slow. Dual Channel combo DIMMS 1/2 and 3/4 have both been tested. I have swapped the memory sticks out for my old pair of CMX512-3200C2PT's, which work without any glitchiness, but are underperformers to the rest of the system's specs. The 6800 Ultra video card is being fed power through two seperate lines, but occasionally a Power Indicator window pops up on the screen: The NVIDIA System Sentinel is reporting that the NVIDIA-powered graphics card is not receiving sufficient power. To protect your hardware from potential damage or causing a potential system lockup, the graphics processor has lowered its performance to a level that allows continued safe operations. This message has only popped up with the new pair of TwinX sticks installed. ========================================================== Is there any known compatibility issues? Can this be fixed through any upgrades, or should I return the TwinX's and be satisfied with the low-performance 3200C2PT's? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
