lordphoenix Posted March 22, 2005 Share Posted March 22, 2005 Alright. I have a Corsair XMS 512MB PC3200 v2.1 stick. I went to Monarch and found the timings were 3-3-3-8. The FSB on the MOBO is set to 333/400. The ram slot is the one all the way to the left (BLACK ONE). When I first booted up, the timings were 2-3-3-7 but I changed it to SPD, User defined, and then 3-3-3-8 (from the bottom to the top). Reboot, nothing. So I have to open the case and take out the CMOS BATTERY and change the jumper... BTW I'm on an AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (166x11) = 1.8 ghz I set it to 2.5-3-3-7 and it's somewhat stable but there are still some crashes (Video card is ZALMANIZED 9700 PRO, CPU is PRIME STABLE AXP 2500+). But I just want to know WHAT the REAL timings are supposed to be and WHY they don't work on the A7N8X DELUXE. Sometimes I crash in games... Maybe it's not the ram... I want to do a memtest on it but I just want to know one thing.. WHAT TIMINGS should I use for a memtest? the default are 3-3-3-8 but the only stable i could get is 2.5-3-3-7...??? <-- Confused? I have reset the cmos about 15 times. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
