Would 3 errors in 11 passes in memtest mean much , if yes or no please explain. This

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



Module part #s -- VS1GBKIT400 ?


Mobo: DFI Ultra Infinity , Nforce 2 Ultra 400


CPU Speed Athlon XP 2200+ FSB 200mhz x10 for 2000mhz


Memory is @ stock, 200mhz , Cas 2.5 , 8,3,3,3 .stock voltage


Fastwrites are turned off...nothing else is different.


Had been running some PNY PC2700 @ 200mhz with no problems.

Well upping the voltage took care of it. I guess what I want to know now is this. Is this just a cheap fix for less then up to par ram?


Ive had a gig of this ram before and it ram just fine @ 2.6 (actually my bios reports 2.65 even though the setting is 2.6 ...now its reporting 2.75)


I mean , I dont mind having the voltage upped but if I can have a pair of the same ram that runs @ 2.6 then id probably rather have those.

I would suggest 2.75 Volts for most MB's. The memory controller also shares the same power source and upping the voltage a little bit will often times solve these types of issues. In addition, all of our DDR1 modules are rated up to 2.9 Volts so you should be fine.
