2-2-2-5 only for one of the two Sticks


Recommended Posts

I have the TWINX1024-3200XL Pro kit which is 512x2 pc3200 2-2-2-5 on

Asus AV8/Bios 1.009final.

One of the sticks got memtest errors at 2-2-2-5 while other work fine.

Of course, I got error in Dual (together) too


I used the same bios setup as you did


Testing parameters for XMS3200XL:
CMX512-3200XL Data Sheet
Motherboard make and model: Asus P4C800/-E and /or Asus A7N8X
DRAM Clock: 200 MHz
SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T
SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 2T
SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T
SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T
SDRAM Bank Interleave: 4 Bank
All other settings are motherboard defaults.


I also tried :

Command 2T: Enable & Disable & Auto

DDR Voltage: 2.7 & 2.8


I think an RMA will be necessary, don't you ?

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and I would use the latest beta bios 1011 Beta 5 and load setup defaults before you set the dim voltage.


I already tested the latest beta bios 1011-005.zip --> it was worst


When I write

I also tried :
Command 2T: Enable & Disable & Auto
DDR Voltage: 2.7 & 2.8

it mean after setup the bios to default & set 2-2-2-5 timing, I made each following test with one stick at a time.

Command 2T Enable & DDR default - Command 2T Disabbled & DDR default

Command 2T Enable & DDR 2.7v - Command 2T Disable & DDR 2.7v

Command 2T Enable & DDR 2.8v - Command 2T Disable & DDR 2.8v

Each time I got Memtest errors with the same stick.


With 2-3-3-6 timing It work fine with all test whatever other settings I may config but I bought 2-2-2-5 not 2-3-3-6
