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 TwinX1024-3200XL

Advanced CPU/Memory Configuration:

Memclock Mode: Limit

Memclock Value: 2:1 (DDR400)

Bank Interleaving: 4/Enabled

Burst Length: 8

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

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!

Hi ramguy

 

i checked my system with the setting u recommended and here is my results

 

Dual Channel in slot A1&B1 @ 2.75v

got 5 errors at test 4 on the first pass (stopped test at this point)

 

Dual Channel in slot A1&B1 @ 2.8v

got 2 errors at test 3 on the first pass (stopped test after test 4 had ran)

 

Dual Channel in slot A1&B1 @2.85v

got 12 errors at test 4 on the first pass (stopped test at this point)

 

Dual Channel in slot A2&B2 @ 2.8v

got 10 errors at test 4 on the first pass (stopped test at this point)

 

Sinlgle Module in slot A2 @ 2.75

both sims passed 3 passes without any errors

 

i have attached an images of my bios settings just incase im missing something.

 

so im a bit confused the sims work ok in single channel but not in dual channel.

 

what do u think ramguy

 

cheers Craig

Please test the modules one at a time to verify whether one memory module is good or bad, if found one module to be good; then please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

i tested the modules one at a time and both the modules did 3 passes without any errors that is what i meant when i sayed single channel.

 

UPDATE

tried my brothers memory in dual channel mode. one is a twinmos twister module (cas 2)and the other is twinmos value (cas 2.5) not a matching set and ran memtest86+ for 4 passes with no errors so maybe my corsair memory is faulty.

  • 2 weeks later...

hi i live in the uk and i send the ram back to "dabs" where i bought it and there are saying it will be 4-6 weeks before i get my ram back because i had it longer than 28 days. They say they need to send it back to there supplier for repair (i had it for 34 days or something). I dont think this is acceptable as i have a new computer i cant use for 4-6 weeks because i was sold faulty ram is there any thing u can do for me ram guy

 

also i dont want repaired ram i want new ram

 

thank u

Craig

You can either go back to the place where you bought it from; they should be able to help you out and take care of it for you, but if you are having a problem going through them, then I am sorry but you will have to send your modules to be replace here in US.
