B00ne Posted March 3, 2005 Share Posted March 3, 2005 Hallo I think I have a bad part: Memory: Corsair Twinx512 XMS3200XL 2x256MB The memory is not failing memtest86+ (at least not for about 8hrs). However my computer is failing Prime95 after 8-12 hrs (time to error varied). Everything is on default settings. For some reason the memory does not default to 2-2-2-5-1T as specified by Corsair but to 2-3-2-5-1t so I changed that one 3 to be 2 cyles - 2-2-2-5-1T) Now to isolate the problem I reduced the memory frequency down to 166 MHz. As a Result I am not getting errors in Prime95 anymore (at least not for about 14-15 - I stopped after that). To further confirm that it is the memory, I increased my HTT to 223 Mhz and reduced my Memory further to 150 (effectively Memory is running at 167.5 Mhz) So far (ca. 11 hrs) I did not get errors - I will check soon if it is still running (17hrs then) edit: Yeah 17hrs still working at overclocked CPU but underclocked memory. Dunno if it is important but Vdram is set to 2.5 but it reads 2.64 (if put to 2.6 it reads 2.73). So I think it has to be the memory. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
