twinx1024-3200llpro problem


Recommended Posts

I purchased a pair of this ram and am having trouble oc'ing it. I have a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum MB with newest bios. It will boot fine with everything set to auto in DRAM settings but when I try to change the FSB to anything over 220 the mb won't even post and i have to clear cmos to even get a bios screen. I changed the mem volt to 2.8, mem clock 133, mem to 3-4-4-11 2t, agp 67 1.6v. With a stick of $10 after MIR 256mb cheapo ram I can get it to boot with these settings (except I changed mem volt to 2.5) all the way to 255 fsb.

I tried with both sticks in slots 1&2 as well as individual sticks in slot 1. I tried 133 and 166 mem clock.

Is there something else I can do or should I RMA the ram?

One of the reasons why I bought the corsair ram was I thought it was premium memory that would overclock. Especially the twinx llpro memory. I can overclock the noname fry's memory much better than the top of the line corsair.

On the back of the package there is a quote stating "They have a high performance rating and should be the choice for overclockers". But your telling me that since it runs at the tested settings, then it must be a mobo problem. If that is the case, why does the cheap pc2700 ram overclock without a problem?

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS installed on your MB and set the following BIOS settings;

DRAM Configuration :

Max Memclock: 200

1T/2T Memory Timing : 1T

CAS# latency (Tlc): 2

RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd): 3

Min RAS# active time (Tras): 6

Row precharge Time (Trp): 2

High Performance Mode : Manual

Aggressive timing : DISABLED

Dynamic Overclocking: DISABLED

Spread Spectrum : Enabled

HT Frequency : 5x

Cool’n’Quiet: Enable

Adjust CPU Rotation: Startup

Adjust CPU FSB Frequency: 200

Adjust AGP Frequency: 66

Adjust CPU VID 1.500v

CPU Voltage: By CPU VID

Memory Voltage : 2.75

AGP Voltage: 1.50V *1.6V if you have 9200 or 9600 ATI or 5200 or 5700 Nvidia card.

All other settings should be left to MB default settings.

As soon as you change the CPU FSB from the default 200 to 220, this should automatically run the memory module on a 1:1 ratio, which will be DDR440; you also might wanna set the memory voltage to 2.85, if 2.75 does not run stable. 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!
