TWINX1024-3200XL Faulty?


Recommended Posts

Hi. I've been having stability issues recently. I ran memtest86 and on test#5 i get errors. Do i have a bad chip or just wrong settings?


AMD Athlon 64 3500+ (1.520v)

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe (not using SLI just yet, latest bios update)




Frequency: 201.0 Mhz

CAS# Latency: 2.0

RAS# to CAS# Delay: 2

RAS# Precharge: 2

Cycle Time (Tras): 5



More Detailed Specs @ http://www.coe.neu.edu/~aismail/specs.html


Edit: Also, i set the ram voltage to 2.8 and test still failed at #5.


Thank you for your time.

I thought i had fixed the problem by changing the "1T/2T Memory Timing" from auto to 1T because it passed the memtest. However after running a second test, it failed. I still get frequent fatal errors and system crashes.


Before i run tests on singles and both i want to make sure my settings are right. Currently i have:


Max Memclock (Mhz): DDR400

1T/2T Memory Timing: 1T

CAS# Latency (Tcl): 2.0

RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd): 2

Min RAS# active time (Tras): 5

Row precharge Time (Trp) Auto

Master ECC Enable: Disabled


I was running the test from memtest86.com but will now run the one from memtest.org after i confirm the proper settings to test. Thank you for your help.

The guide tells me that if i have 1 stick, i should install it in DIMM_B1 only, if two, then DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1. I tested both sticks by themselves in B1 and to my surprise one of them passed it (with many many itterations), however the other failed at first pass in repeated tests.
