CMX512 3200 C2PT on DFI Lanparty UT (nForce3 250)


Recommended Posts


I recently instaled a Corsair XMS 512MB PC3200 C2PT memory module on my mobo (DFI Lanparty UT - nForce3 250). The problem is that if i let the bios auto-detect the cass it comes up with an outrageous 3-3-3-8 (instead of 2-3-3-6 or 2.5-3-3-6 which is normal for c2). I`ve set the timings manually and there seems to be no problem but when i use Everest i get the following result:

[ DIMM1: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 ]

Is this normal? BIOS now shows the 2-3-3-6 which i set manually. Why doesn`t the auto-config corectly detect the cass? Am i risking anything by manually setting the cass to 2-3-3-6? My mem is v4.2
