michaeldrouin Posted December 7, 2004 Share Posted December 7, 2004 I have a challenge for you, RAM GUY! You would be happy to know I've done tons of research in your postings and did what I can, but I believe I'm still having problems. I've been working on this monster of a computer that I want to perform like the beast it is. Everything seems to be working okay, but I have some doubts about the RAM. Here's what I got. P4 3.21GHz (800FSB) (512MB) P4C Northwood, O.C. 3.60GHz nVidia Personal Cinema GeForce 5700 256MB (tried O.C. and really didn't help much. Bad board for overclocking. Realize this is not a great performing, but I still think my 3DMark is too low.) Corsair TWINX1024 XMS32002 PL DDR400 200MHz (I'll be adding two more once I have all issues resolved.) ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE water cooled Audigy 2 ZS Platinum BIOS AI overclock Manual CPU external freq 225 DRAM Freq 320 AGP/PCI 66.66/33.33 VCORE 1.7V DDR V 2.75V AGP V 1.6V Performance mode auto Config RAM Disabled CAS# 2 RAS# 2 RAS#-CAS# 2 DELAY 5 BURST 4 Mem acceleration enabled DRAM idle timer auto DRAM refresh rate auto Graphic priority AGP/PCI Graphic aperture 256MB Spread Spectrum enabled Delay transition enabled MPS revision 1.1 (Going to try updating BIOS, but last time I did that I had nothing but problems) Onboard AC'07 disabled Onboard MIDI enabled Legacy USB disabled Benchmarks 3D Mark 2001SE - 13,100 (not good, I should be getting over 17,000)(now I'm having some serious problems. I don't know what I did, I don't think I changed anything but 3D Mark 2001SE fails after 2 tests. nothing comes easy to me) 3D Mark 2003 - 3295 (HORRIBLE!!! Should be running 10000-12000) PC Mark 5206 (not bad but 6500 would be better) Sandra Memory - 4857/4865 (par, this is good, I don't understand why 3D Marks run so slow????) CPU - 10834/4473/8009 (above par) Multi-Media 27517/39284 (above par) Cache/Memory/CPU - 10112 (no reference for this CPU, probably par) What's the problem, you may ask. First of all, I can't OC the CPU if I set the ram to 400MHz. That's what it should be right? Asus Probe doesn't recognize my RAM speed. If I use ASUS Probe it screws up my RAM settings)SANDRA says my RAM is not ECC/Parity and there is no 36-bit size page extension (I don't know what that is) ASUS Probe Socket DIMM A1/B1 Bank RAS1/5 RAS 0/4 Speed UNKNOWN Type DIMM Size 512MB Double Bank Enable 512MB Double Bank No reported error Sandra Tells me that my RAM is not ECC/Parity Rated Speed 3200MHz/4x200MHz 36-bit size page extension NO (Is this a problem) Channels 2 Speed 2x180MHz Data rate 366MHz (only setting that allows me to overclock) RAM GUY, CAN YOU HELP ME, OR AM I A LOST CAUSE???!!!!????
