Bad Stick -o- CMX512


Alucard22

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm running a pair of Twin X CMX512-3200C2PT and one of them appears to have developed a bad case of erroridious.

During general use system runs alright. Occasionally Outlook will yell at me about a form of memory error and want to reboot itself; which I do and sometimes again a little while later it will do it again.

During heavier usage it tends to error a bit more frequently. If I'm in a game I can sometimes play for about 5 minutes or so if even before it locks up.

 

I just ran memtest and it became rather clear that something was wrong. Running both chips I had gotten a total of 382 errors. Going back through it again with only one chip at a time, one passed and the other got 2921 erros on Test 5, and another 275 errors during test 7.

 

Is there any other tests that may need to be ran before being cleared for RMA or is this worthy?

 

Thanks.

 

P.S. Forgot to mention that the motherboard I'm using is an ABIT AI7 with a Pentium 4 2.8GHz.

Can you tell me our modules part# (How To Read the Memory Label) and 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?

 

Module # is CMX512 - 3200C2PT

CPU Speed is Pentium 4 2.8GHz

Memory Speed is 400MHz

I don't have any performance settings turned on. Game Accelerator is set to Auto, and DRAM setting is by SPD.

Please try these settings and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org.

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%DDR400

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 200MHz/DDR400

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

When I change these settings and reboot it beeps and won't boot. When I reboot again it'll POST but still won't boot. That's using either chip

Tested the memory in that motherboard and came out all good. So I went and just returned my motherboard and got a SOYO SY-P4VTE. Ran memtest on each memory and it returns more errors then ever in test 7 on both of them, not just the one.
