Hello,

 

I have run my new rig for four days without any trouble. Now it suddenly start hanging when I play games. The temps are normal cpu 51 c, system 58 c but I discovered that my memory sticks are very hot.

 

I have checked OS, drivers and apps all seems fine.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Hardware:

 

Shuttle SN25P | AMD 64 +3800 | Corsair TWINX1024-3200XL | WD 74 gb Raptor | ATI X800 XT | Nec 3520A | Floppy | Razer DiamondBack | Logitech UltraX Keyboard | Viewsonic V201S

 

Thanks,

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? If what's in your signature is not what you have. 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?

Thank you for you quick reply. Please see attached file.

 

Settings in BIOS are default. Memory settings are on auto, so is CPU speed. I did notice that timings are with default settings set to 2-2-2-5.

 

 

Thanks,

The minimum suggested voltage for these modules would be 2.75 Volts. Please try setting the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org. And this system may not run these modules at Cass 2-2-2-5. You might try and set the Rass to Cass to "3" and see if that helps.

I can chose between 2.70 or 2.80 volts, which one should I go for?

 

I tested with a pair of CMX256A and the same thing happened. That makes me suspect the video card since it only happens when gaming. But I'll look into the other settings and will run the tests as well.

 

Thanks

Also, if that fails, set your RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD) to 3 and test again, however another HoH member recently got the same memory / motherboard over the weekend and is running it fine.

 

That would be me and the 2.8v gave me great stbility. The default auto setting is using 2.7v which i think causes problems.

I have also replied to bjorn44 about this on the sff forumns

No sure if his heat build up is due to RAM or some other cause ??
