Recommended Posts

I have two of these "TWIN2X 4300C3PRO DDR2, 1024MB Kit w/two matched CM2X512-4300C3PRO" that freezes when I run all 4 modules, If I remove one of the pair, the pc works fine without freezes. I have tried memtest, it doesen't find any errors.

Can anyone help? please

 

My pc:

Asus P5AD2-E Premium

Pentium 4 3.8GHz

2 GB Corsair Memory

Asus GeForce EN 6800 Ultra 256MB

Mist 500 W PSU

Ok here it goes:

 

Stick 1: CM2X512A- 4300C3PRO XMS4303 v1.1 0502053 -1

Stick 2: CM2X512A- 4300C3PRO XMS4303 v1.1 0502053 -1

Stick 3: CM2X512A- 4300C3PRO XMS4303 v1.1 0502053 -1

Stick 4: CM2X512A- 4300C3PRO XMS4303 v1.1 0502053 -1

 

Works just fine with one pair

 

Here are results with Memtest86

 

Chipset: Intel i925X/XE (ECC: DISABLED) - FSB:200 MHZ - TYPE: DDR2

Settings: RAM: 266 MHZ (DDR533) / CAS: 3-3-3-8 SINGLE CHANNEL (64 BIT)

 

Stick 1: Pass 4 - Error 0 - 34 Min

Stick 2: Pass 4 - Error 0 - 35 Min

Stick 3: Pass 4 - Error 0 - 34 Min

Stick 4: Pass 4 - Error 0 - 34 Min

 

No freezes and no error testing each module in same slot

 

Tried testing my system with only:

Mainboard: Asus P5AD2-E Premium

CPU: Pentium 4 3.8GHz

RAM: 4x Corsair 512MB Stick

Graphic Card: Asus GeForce EN 6800 Ultra 256MB

Harddrive: 1x SATA Western Digital

 

It did freeze after 6 - 10 min.

Is there some settings in the bios that can fix this problem?

Useing 2 stick at the time works fine without freezing.

Thanx for the answer.

 

The funny thing is, one pair works fine in bank a, if I remove them with the other pair, it freezes after 5 - 6 min with memtest & windows.

Should I try all four module sticks with 2.1 Volts and timing to Cas 4-4-4-12 in the bios?

Please test them one set at a time like I suggested and the minimum dim Voltage for these modules would be 1.9 Volts. So please test them and if you find one set is the problem then lets get that set replaced.

Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

Set one with 1.9 Volts setting in bios, did freeze after five min. Works ok with auto setting.

 

Set two with 1.9 Volts setting in bios did freeze when windows started.

 

Both sets where tested in bank a on the motherboard

 

 

I have this setting in AMI bios under:

 

Configure DRAM TIMING by SPD

 

DRAM CAS# Latency - 5 Clocks

DRAM RAS# Precharge - 4 Clocks

DRAM RAS# to Cash#Delay - 4 Clocks

DRAM RAS# Activate to Precha - 15 Clocks

DRAM WRITE Recovery Time - 4 clocks

 

DRAM ECC Mode - Auto ?

 

is it here I find the timing settings cas?

All of a sudden my system works ok with all 4 modules. I set the power to 2.0 Volts. I did't find where to change "timings to Cass 4-4-4-12" in the bios.

 

Is it safe to run my system like I do now? or do I need to change the timing cas?

If I do, How do i do it?

 

I hope it isn't periodic error with the modules.
