TwinX1024-3200C2PT A7N8X-E DELUXE AGAIN!!

Sorry to start yet another thread on this exhausted topic but I fail in seeing how Corsair can recommend these sticks as the number one choice for this board. I have tried almost every configuration option possible and racked up countless reboots. The settings below have produced the fewewst errors under memtest at 20 hours.

 

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

System Performance: User Defined

Memory Frequency: auto (any other setting=more errors)

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 200MHz

At 6,3,3,3 (6,3,3,2.5 the recommended settings produced 200 errors in 1 hour)

 

My system:

AthlonXP 3200+

Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe

BIOS 1013

ATI AIW9600 128

DVD RW

CD RW

Antec Truepower 430

 

This setup produced 2 errors in 20 hours. Is that acceptable? I had read that any error is awful. Both errors came in test 8. I also read that test 8 is very demanding on Athlon systems.

 

Failing address in error 1 was 0001baecc94

Failing address in error 2 was 0003daecc94

(if this means anything to somebody!)

 

Might this mean that one of the modules is bad?

 

I have read somewhere that it is suggested to put the modules in slots 2 and 3 and switch the FSB jumper to pins 2 and 3. Isnt this silly if I bought this board and CPU to be able to run at 400mhz ?

 

Are there any other memory testers out there that are reliable. Can you give me any pointers on settings for checking the modules individualy?

 

I dont have to much time to play around with these things, Zip Zoom Fly only gives you 15 days to return items!

Taken from this post.

Please try these settings:

With the A7N8X-E please set the FSB jumper to pins 2-3 with the modules in slots 2-3 and then reset or clear the bios and load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts and set the timings manually. Then please test the system with http://www.memtest.org.

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

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

 

I have 4 of these exact MB's and this is what had to be done to solve problems with aggressive memory, no matters who's I tested. In addition, a few other's had some success disabling Spread Spectrum in the bios as well. I would take a look at http://www.asusforums.org as well in the AMD section.
