MemTest-86 v3.2 errors


Recommended Posts

My System:

Asus A8V Deluxe MB

AMD64 3500+ processor

Corsair TWINX1024-3200LLPRO Ram

Two-Western Digital Raptor 10k 74Mb

eVga 6800GT Graphics


I have been getting some 'blue screen of death' system halts so I ran MemTest-86 v3.2. I got a bunch of errors at approx 463 mb. Any Ideas?

You cant do one stick at a time because it is dual channel.

Yes You Can. Dual channel is a property of the memory controller and how it manages the memory bandwidth with 2 sticks in a particular configuration. The memory is neither single nor dual channel, and any motherboard that can do dual channel can also do single channel. It does this automatically with one stick, or with the memory in a particular configuration.


Does the other stick pass in that same slot at those timings? If so, yes, it's probably the memory and Ram Guy will approve your RMA in the morrow.


Is that a 90 nm or 130 nm core CPU? They're both 939 socket, and in some cases with the new 90 nm core CPU it can cause instability if the BIOS doesn't support it. A BIOS update would fix it though, although as long as your BIOS version is 1007 or higher, it'll already support it.


FYI, the 90 nm may be marked as (rev.D).

With this MB I would suggest you set the Rass to Cass to "3" so I would set these timings and then set the Dim Voltage to +2.7 Volts and install the modules in slots 2-4:

CAS Latency CL=2.0

Row Cycle Time tRC Bios Default

Row Refresh Cyc Time tRFC Bios Default

Ras# to CAS# delay tRCD 3

Row to Row delay Bios Default

Min Ras# Active Time tRAS 6

Row Precharge Time tRP 2

Write Recovery Time Bios Default

Write to Read delay Bios Default

Read to Write Delay Bios Default

Refresh Period tREF Bios Default

Enable 2T Timing Disabled

Then test the system with http://www.memtest.org and make sure it's stable! If you have problems, I would set Enable 2T Timings to AUTO and test it again!
