CMX512-3200C2 (x1)

 

FSB: 166 MHz, RAM had been running at 2-3-3-7 as indicated by the SPD, and has never had a problem before. No overclocking, hardware changes or BIOS configuration changes in the almost two years I've had the computer.

 

A few days ago, Windows spontaneously manifested a habit of "recovering from a serious error" -- it happened four times in 12 hours after not happening a single time prior -- and I stuck in a SuSE CD and ran Memtest86. Consistent failures across four consecutive full passes. I reset my BIOS, downloaded a newer Memtest86 and ran (and failed) again...then forced various other timings (among them: 2-2-2-5/6, 2-3-3-6/7, 2.5-3-3-6/7) and ran through a single pass of a single test of Memtest86 with each. Perfectly reproducible failures.

 

RAM was purchased from Newegg in mid-2003, I still have a copy of the invoice, though none of the original packaging.

Please try and load setup defaults and then set the settings manually

CPU Freq: 166 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 166MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

And test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org to be sure.

Loaded defaults, then manually specified: 2.5-3-3-6, 2.7 volts, 166 MHz, only module in the computer. Same results.
