Getting errors with my PC3200XL


Recommended Posts

I have 4 512 sticks of Corsair PC3200XL (ver 1.2). I am running them at 200, 2-2-2-5. While I'm not getting any Windows errors that I can notice, the ram flunks the Windows Memory Diagnostic tests (booting from floppy) and the Memtest program (the one that runs in Windows).


The Windows Memory Diagnostic reports errors in:

WMATS+ and WINVC. The results show errors in modules 1, 2, and 4.


I don't know what's up here. Never had any errors with Corsair memory before.


Any ideas?

I changed the timings to 2-3-3-6 and now no errors.


I guess having 4 sticks changes everything as the Corsair PC3200XL (1.2) won't even do it's rated speed of 2-2-2-5 without errors.


With more and more people wanting over a gig of memory and thus having 4 sticks, I think it would be a good idea for Corsair to also start testing/matching/selling with 4 sticks.
