Asus K8V Deluxe Q (RAM GUY? Anyone?)


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Noob to the forum, checked most of the back threads, and they seemed to be related to SE version(where the LL version is highly rec'd).

A friend wants me to redo his setup and I'm wondering about the exact settings for the memory.

It says, CMX512-3200C2 also in RH corner, XMS3202v1.2,

Also at bottom,

XMS3200 512MB 400MHZ CL2

This is a matched set of 512 sticks, and I have read about the up'ed voltage

(2.7 ?), however, I am curious about the exact slots(1 and 3-- I believe),

and bios settings for this setup.

I was not aware the setup could be temperamental with the memory, so I am just checking in.

No OC'ing going on, just need a stable rig for audio editing.

Bios Rev 1.05 I believe.

Currently this board was setup with sticks in slots 1 and 2, no bios tweaks.

I just want to get max performance from the mem.


This forum kicks *** BTW, I 've wasted an hour in here checking stuff out,

oh well, it's only sleep.


Thanks in advance,

Please use slots 1-3 or 2-3 and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and then set the timings to:

CAS Latency CL=2.5

Row Cycle Time tRC Bios Default

Row Refresh Cyc Time tRFC Bios Default

Ras# to CAS# delay tRCD 3

Row to Row delay Bios Default

Min Ras# Active Time tRAS 6

Row Precharge Time tRP 3

Write Recovery Time Bios Default

Write to Read delay Bios Default

Read to Write Delay Bios Default

Refresh Period tREF Bios Default

Enable 2T Timing Disabled

Then test the system with http://www.memtest.org and make sure it's stable! If you have problems, I would set Enable 2T Timings to AUTO and test it again!
