TWINX DDR XMS3200 1GB Problems


Recommended Posts



i've bougth the TWINX DDR XMS3200 512MB (each) 400 MHz Ram's in 2003 and they were running perfectly in my Dual Channel MSI K7N2 Delta Board with an Athlon 2500 XP Processor. I've used the SPD Memory Settings and 200 MHZ FSB Bus Speed. Since one month I often had trouble with hanging games, Windows Bluscreens with the PFN_LIST_CORRUPT Error and corrupt files when burning CD's or extracting zip-files. I haven't changed anything in the system and my XP installation is as old as the sticks. After i detect the problems I've changed memory timings to slower ones then SPD, FSB speed to 133, remove all unneeded PCI cards but the problem still exist. BIOS updates and newest NVIDIA nforce drivers for the board doesn't help too.


Today I replaced the Corsairs Sticks with two infinon 512 MB Ram's in and everything is working fine! Can I have an RMA number to send them back to test and change them?

Thanks for this advice but I have test it with different FSB Bus Settings for the last two weeks. After the problems happens I choose FSB 333 and FSB 266 but the problems still exist. I although altered memory timings for testing but nothing helps.

The system was running stable with FSB 400 since one year and is again running stable at FSB 400 with the ordanary infinon rams. The CPU (Athlon XP Barton) is liquid cooled and the system has extra fans too.


I haven't test which of the TWINX sticks is the problem but I expect they will be changed both because they are a machted pair?
