laserbeam Posted March 1, 2005 Share Posted March 1, 2005 I have just gone through the process of ramping the 1GB matched pair of modules I installed in my new system build (testing with memtest86 v1.51). Starting with timings of 2-2-2-10 (tRAS 10 seems optimal with my mobo) I got to 220Mhz FSB (CPU multiplier reduced to 8) before encountering any errors. Since then I've increased timings through 2.5-3-3-10 as I raised FSB. All frequencies generate errors on test number 8. I've tried raising DIMM voltage to 2.8V but that doesn't help either. So, I thought I'd test the modules at the certified timings (DDR550 2.5-4-4-8), turning the cpu multiplier down in the process and setting vdimm to 2.7V. Again, memtest blew out on test number 8. Seeing as these modules won't pass memtest86 at their certified timings I'm thinking they should be replaced unless there are bios settings I've overlooked that are causing me grief. Some help and/or warranty guidance will be greatly appreciated. Components in play are: Athlon64 3200+ Winchester (cooled with XP-120) DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Sli-D 1GC Corsair Twin-X 4400C25PT OCZ Powerstream 600W PSU Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
