Asus A8V Deluxe and Twinx 3200LL


Taylo

Recommended Posts

I have an Asus A8V Deluxe v.2, AMD64 3500, Twinx 1024-3200LL, and have had some stability isssues. I was wondering if you give me your recomendations for all settings related to memory for this board? This system will not be OC'd. I searched but couldnt find this combo's setting asked for previously.

 

Also, would you recommend enabling "Plug and Play OS" or enabling bios handling, I have heard conflicting info for this board and WinXP Professional?

 

Thanks in advance RamGuy, have a good day.

Please put the memory modules on either slots 1&3 or 2&4; make sure that you have the latest BIOS installed for your MB; load optimized/set up default, and set the following BIOS settings;

TwinX512 or TwinX1024-4000

Advanced CPU/Memory Configuration:

Memclock Mode: Limit

Memclock Value: 2:1 (DDR400)

Bank Interleaving: 4/Enabled

Burst Length: 8

SDRAM CAS Latency: 3T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 4T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 4T

2T Command Rate: Disabled

Jumper Free/Frequency Voltage Control:

AI Overclock Tuner: Manual

CPU FSB Clock: 200

DDR Voltage: 2.8 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) 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!

Thanks for the reply ramguy,

 

I just wanted to confirm that the memory we are talking about is TwinX1024-3200LL, and not the twinx4000pro listed in my sig, I am working on a different computer than my own and noticed that you said, "and set the following bios settings; TwinX512 or TwinX1024-4000".

 

Please advise. Ill turn my sig off to avoid any confusion on this.

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

Please double check the memory slots your recomending. The manual for the A8V deluxe clearly states to use the blue slots first (A1, B1 or 1 and 3) but your telling me to put them in 2 and 4....... why? Cause Im still having issues with disk error checking and random freezing.

 

thanks

Yes, I have. And I would try just the opposite that the manual suggests. Reason is the AMD CPU white papers, and when I tested this MB I had to use these slots. But only if you are having trouble with slots 1-3!
