TerryK Posted February 25, 2005 Share Posted February 25, 2005 I recently built a new system using a DFI LanParty nF4 Ultra-D m/b and 1Gig of Corsair TwinX1024-3200XLPRO. Using Memtest86 v1.51 I get errors using the default SPD settings at 2.7V. The memory boots at 2-3-2-5 according to Memtest86. I manually set it to 2-2-2-5 according to the instructions on this site and got even more errors. I was only able to run error free when I relaxed the timings to 2.5-3-3-6. I also have an ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe m/b and since you use this m/b for testing also, I put it in there to test. Memtest86 reported that it booted at 2.5-2-2-6 at the default SPD settings. I made sure the DRAM voltage was at 2.75V and was still not able to test error free, even at these slightly relaxed timings. Since this memory is supposed to run at 2-2-2-5, I feel I have bad memory. I know it will run at the relaxed timings, but I paid for premium memory and I believe it should be able to run at the rated timings of 2-2-2-5 as is written on the label. Nothing is being OC'ed on the system and the p/s is a premium OCZ 520W p/s with adjustable rails, which are all showing good. I am using an Athlon FX-55 in the DFI m/b and a P4 3.2Ghz in the ASUS board. My son is using Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL in his system, which I believe is the same memory minus the LED's. I put it in both systems to test and it runs perfectly at 2-2-2-5. I let the test run for several passes. I have another package of the TwinX1024-3200XLPRO that I was going to install but now I am thinking of returning it. Am I expecting too much or do you think I have some bad memory here? Thanks in advance for any replys. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
