PC3200XLPRO & K8N Neo2 Platinum Problem


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a set of Corsair PC3200XLPro memory modules. I specifically selected them for the outstanding latancies times of 2,2,2,5. I also did a fair amount of checking and they seemed to work fine on my MSI k8N Neo2 board. However, I can not get the specified timings. At best, I get 2,3,2,5 which is upping the CAS-RAS to 3.


Things I have tried:

-Up voltage to 7.25 & 7.8

-Diabled "aggressive timing" setting

-Lower HT to "4x"


Regardless, if I try to run with CAS-RAS = 2 then MemTest86 reports numerous failures. However, simply changing the CAS-RAS =3 and I get no failures over multiple MemTest86 cycles.


Any suggestions? How can I get the reported timings? Do I have a bad module? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Well that could be the CPU causing this, but I have no problem replacing your modules if you want to try that!

Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
