MSI NEO2 Platinum and TWINX1024 - 3200C2PT


Recommended Posts

I am having seroius stability issues with this configuration. When I set the timings exactly as specified on this forum, it becomes very unstable.


My config is as follows.


MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ (winchester)


Cosair TWINX1024 3200C2PT

Spec Timings 2.5-3-3-6 (DDR 400) 1t

by SPD 3,3,8,5 (DDR 400) 1t


In both memory settings above = very unstable!



BFG OC 6800 Ultra 256MB (AGP)


Antec 480W PWSP (new)


The only way I can have a stable system is to slow the memory down to DDR333 and 2t.


Could I have a bad module? Please help?

I pulled the sticks. They are CMX512-3200C2PT sticks. It also says XMS3202v5.1.


I have two of these 5122MB sticks. They came in the TwinX pack. The RAM also has the TwinX sticker on it.


I noticed that I had the ram in the 3rd and 4th slots, so I decided to move them back to the 1st and 2nd. I changed the timings back down to 2.5-3-3-8-1T and booted up. I started up Prime95 as soon as the machine was booted, and it has been going ever since. I am typing this as it is working. It is as far as it has gotten with these latencies. Maybe it is a good sign.


Prime ran without error last night for 9 hours at 3-3-3-8-2T.


Maybe it was just the slots I was using?
