Twinx1024-3200c2pt bad


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the Twinx1024-3200c2pt for my system. Since instaling them I've gotten multiple BSOD with stop errors.

I went through the "I think I've got bad RAM" FAQ and nothing helped, running memtest shows errors.

I also swapped it into 2 other systems and recevied simmilar results.


The original packing was discarded so the retail outlet where I purchased this from pointed me to the manuacturer to RMA.

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

Mobo is a Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro (Rev 1.0) w/ latest BIOS and chipset drivers.

CPU is P4 3.0, 800MHz FSB.

BIOS and Memory are at the factory setting, no performance settings or overclocking.

Please try and load setup/Optimized Defaults and then set the Dim Over Voltage Control to +.2 Volts and see if that does not solve the problem. If not then let's try replacing them.

Please follow the directions under "I think I have a bad module" under this forum or if you have trouble, Please send us a email with a copy of the form or all of your info name address and phone# and the Module part# and copy the link to this post and email it to Rma@corsairmemory.com.

If after 1 day or 24 hours excluding weekends you do not get the rma please email the same to warranty@corsairmemory.com and we will help to resolve it.

I received the new memory last night and installed it.

Made sure that optimized defaults was selected in the BIOS and that the dim over voltage was set to +.2.

Booted up a a few minutes later got the BSOD with stop errors!

I let memtest run overnight and it showed 7 errors this morning.

Am I just extremely unlucky and gotten two bad memory packages?

System specs are:

Intel P4 @ 3.0 Ghz

Gigabyte 3D Cooler Pro (CPU)

Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro (Rev 1.0) mobo

2 gig RAM in dual channel

2x512 Geil

2x512 Twinx1024-3200c2pt

Xaser III Supertower

eVga 6800GT video

Sound Blaster Live


I pulled the Geil RAM when I got the new sticks last night and just used the Corsair ones for testing. I started out with them in slots 1&3, after 2 BSOD I moved them to slots 3&4 and got another BSOD.


I then removed the Corsair RAM and put the Geil RAM in and didn't have any problems or crashes for a period of 2 hours. Before I went to bed I put the Corsair back in and ran Memtest.


Any ideas what my problem could be?


I'll swap it into another system and see what the result is.

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-3200C2

Advanced Chipset Features (Ctrl + F1)

DRAM Clock: 400 MHz

Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

SDRAM Burst Length: 8

SDRAM Bank Interleave: 4/Auto/Enabled

SDRAM Command Rate: 1T

Frequency Voltage Control

CPU Freq: 200

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.7/2.75 Volts (+.2)

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI 9200 or 9600 then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

All other settings should be set to default settings!

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
