Hey there ram guy I need your help. I have an abit nf7-s mobo and want to use dual channel mode with my corsair xms pc3200. The problem is I have 3 available slots to use for ram. I have 3 ram chips 2 are new twinx pc 3200 and the other is the same exact type of pc3200 just a older revision.

Can you tell me the revision of all of the modules and the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

Hey sorry for the lack of info i didnt know what u would need. well I am gettin a new system. I am going to pci-express x16 system so the some info I dont have. First off the ram chips. The 2 pair of twinx chips are revision 5.1 CMX512-3200C2PT, 400mhz. The 1 chip is revision 1.2 CMX512-3200C2PT. I want to use that with a chaintech mobo nforce 4 ultra with a amd 64 3000 to 3400. I never change any bios settings i mean no overclock. if u cant answer me then when I get the system and have more info that u need then thats ok. I am sorry to bother you but I know you are the only one that would know. So I will check back later Ram Guy! thanks!!

With the MB you will be getting all of the modules would need to be exactly matched both in part# and revision, or it may not post.

 

 

To install these in your Nforce2 MB I would install the the 2 matched modules in slots 2-3 so they are in dual channel and then install the older module in slot 1 and then set the Voltage to 2.8 Volts and set the timings to Cass 2.5-3-3-7 and test the system with http://www.memtest.org to make sure it's stable. If you get errors try swapping the modules that are in slots 1-2 so the Rev. 1.2 stick is in slots 2 and the matched module is in slot 1.
