Twinx1024-4400c25 bad module

Had some stability problems when doing torture test under prime95, especially with super pi running simultaneously. Ran memtest for several hours and it didn't show up any problems. I then took out one module, and was still having problems under prime95. I then switch modules, and have had no problems with the second one installed by itself. Based on this, I believe I have a bad module. At present I am running at 200 mghz, 2.70 V, 2.5-4-4-8 with a 1T timing. Is there any reason other than a bad module that one would work fine and the other would fail?

Also, I get fewer failures with the one bad module than when I have both modules installed.

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with 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?

I have an MSI Neo2 Platium, AMD64 3000 (1.8 ghz). I have tried the fail Safe bios settings, the Optimized bios settings, I have set the 2.5 - 4 - 4 - 8 timings manually, and I have disabled the dynamic overclocking and aggressive timings. I've used the auto settings for CPU. THe FSB is 200Mhz.

Please test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and I would set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts and if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other issue, but if you just have one failing then let's get your modules 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!

Just to chime in. I am also having issues with the same board and mem.

 

everything in bios is set to safe settings (3-4-4-8) @ 200MHz and memtest shows errors.

 

Hey RamGuy, should I submit my own post and get warranty service?

That would suggest some other problem to me, can you test the modules in another system? And do you have the latest beta bios for your MB? You might check over at MSI's user forum and see what they have to say to be sure.

Latest Bios. now i did put these sticks on a Aopen AX4C-Max (i875P) board and it works at (2.5,4,4) @ 200, BUT will not work at (2,2,2) @ 200. Both with PAT enabled with P4, 2.4GHz.
