Registered memory compat.


Recommended Posts

I recently installed of Corsair cms512r-3200c2. I had a 512mb of generic pc3200 ram before, and was hoping to use both to get 1 gig but that wont work for some reason. Each work fine by themselves but together nothing is displayed on the monitor. Was wondering if anyone knew why? (maybe one is registered and one isnt???) Also if I get more ram for dual channel do i need more registered (more of the same stuff)?


I am using and althon 64 on ASUS k8v-x


The memory config in the bios is set as follows because nothing would happen on default settings with the new corsair ram


Memclock Mode: Limit

Memclock Value: 2:1 (DDR400)

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

This is something that most of us cannot explain and you'd really have to ask an engineer why it works, but the board DOES NOT support registered modules.


If you put two of them in, it would fail, but as I said this wierd thing happens sometimes allowing you to run one registered module by itself.
