I need a RMA :(

Recommended Posts

Hello, i am from germany (my english is not the best)... ;):


I have problems with my RAM Modules


-- Corsair TWINX 1024-3200LL --


The Problem:

The Modules starts and my PC run, but some minutes later, my pc begin to lagg! The Problem is often, but not in same Cycle! Sometimes the problem is all 15 minutes and sometime in larger intervals.


I tested with 2 PC'S


1. PC:


P4 3,066 GHz (133 FSB/ 533 Quadpumped), Mainboard: GA-8INXP = RAM lagg (with other modules is it stable)


2. PC:


P4 3,00 GHz (200 FSB/ 800 Quadpumped), Mainboard: Asus P4P800-E Deluxe = RAM instable, PC reboot or lagg!



I tested the RAM with Memtest86+ 1.51 at the second PC System! The RAM had 3393 faults!


I uploaded pics from that test, you can look there!






I want to send Modules to repairing or to exchanging to corsair, is it okay?


yours sincerely CorsairLover

Can you tell me 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?

The 2. PC is the PC of a good Friend, the settings there i cant say you, because I dont have the PC here, but there are the "normal" settings, not overclocked or other things.... The RAM run there at dual channel mode, the FSB of the CPU was 200 MHz (multiplier: 15 = 3000 MHz) - 800 MHz Quadpumped, the RAM runs so at 200 MHz ... -- see the pictures, there u see the settings of the 2. PC, the PC of my friend with my modules.


The Settings at my PC are also normal, I don't had it overclocked, the timing of the RAM was at standard Mode, the FSB of my CPU is 133 MHz (Multiplier 23 = 3059 MHz). The RAM run at dual channel mode, too The Quadpumped FSB of my CPU is 533, the RAM runs so at 133 MHz... i cant say u the timing of the rams, because my pc are in 1000 pices in front me :p: - i want upgrade my pc a little bit ... because i thought i send u the ram modules, but i must wrote here into the forum ... i saw it to late sry, but the settings are standard not overclocked, the ram function without problems 1 1/2 year... since 3 month my pc lagg.. but i dont know whats the problem... i tested than with memtest before 1 month .. and now i know the ram was the problem of my pc :[pouts:

okay, i tested my modules at the pc of my friend, now..


in that pc are no more components of my pc, only the ram modules (Twinx 1024-3200LL) - The PC of my friend runs stable with his own ram modules, with my are instable ... i think, the problems are 100 % the ram :greencry:


at the Asus P4P800-E ( + P4 3,00 GHz, 800 FSB Quadpumped), i cant select the Momory Frequency of 333 MHz, but 320 was possible...


I tested 2 times the modules:





400 MHz


DIm Voltages: Auto

in Dual Channel Mode



320 MHz


in Dual Channel Mode


(your desired settings)


see the Pictures:

Test 1:







Test 2:




U see at the pictures: that are problems at 400 MHz at that Timings, at 320 MHz are no problems!


My PC runs 1 1/2 year with the settings of the 1. Test in that posting.. since 3 month, the pc lagg (see the other posts) (not overclocked, only auto- setting)


i dont want to run my pc with 333 MHz RAM, because a long time .. 1 1/2 year it function really great..




1 1/2 year at (Mainboard) Gigabyte GA-8INXP + 3,06 GHz, 533 FSB runs the ram stable, than the problems


with other ram run my pc stable, i tested modules at the pc of a friend, the same problems: laggs and reboots, but with his own ram was all okay...


i hope i get a rma now :greencry: (sorry for my english ;): )

The suggested settings for XMS3200LL would be Cass 2-3-2-6 at DDR400 at 2.75 Volts. If you can test them again in your friends system witht hese settings one at a time that would help. But if you want to try replacing them, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
