Keep Crashing in Warcraft 3 ... "Memory Cannot Be Read"


Recommended Posts



Somehow, I Crash in Warcraft III and it says it's a Memory Problem. That " Memory cannot be read " after 20 or so minutes of The Frozen Throne.


My Rig:


Asus A7N8X DELUXE REV 2.0 BIOS 1008

CORSAIR XMS 512MB PC3200 DDR400 "CMX512-3200PT" 2.5-3-3-6 TIMINGS


200x11 FSB / Multiplier...


MEMORY is in the BLACK slot (the one all the way to the left. the other 2 are blue prob for dual channel).


My video card is an ATI Radeon 9700 Pro with a ZALMAN HEATPIPE and a ZALMAN 80MM Fan. It's DAMN COLD and I know it can't be the problem.


I googled up the "CMX512-3200PT" and noticed it's timings were 3-3-3-8. I set it to that and my system won't even boot up. So I reset the CMOS and it works on 2.5-3-3-6/7 but it keeps crashing in WC3.


Could I RMA this stick and get another model of Corsair 512 DDR400?


Please help me, RAMGUY.

Yep, had the a7n8x mobo with three sticks of corsair value select ram and would get that same annoying message anytime I would play any sort of game. After playing with the settings I found out that the sticks simply needed a jump in voltage. Set them to 2.6v and all was fine and dandy no matter what I was using the comp for.
