RMA Request for bad XMS 3200


Recommended Posts

Well, I have had issues with them from the beginning, but I thought they would do. Recently, my system has become less and less stable. I ran Prime95, and it failed the first test. Any time I use software to check my RAM from windows, my PC restarts or freezes. I can't run it at stock times, or it freezes, sometimes doesnt even get through post.

What CPU / FSB / Motherboard do you have?


What is the exact part # and revision # of your memory?

If you have more than one stick:

Is it a TwinX pack? If not, what is the revision # of each stick?

Did you test one stick at a time in each slot using Memtest86+?


Althalon XP 3500+ / 1600 FSB / MSI Neo2 Plat.






I have a TwinX pack.

I tested one stick at a time on stoc timings. One of the sticks was fine, the other came back as follows.


16 passes - 476895 errors.

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and set the timings to the following and test the suspect module with http://www.memtest.org.


Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 200 MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

If you still get errors, then I would suggest we replace both modules so they match. Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
