cmx512-3200c2pt & DFI LANPARTY UT nF3 250Gb

Recommended Posts

I own 2 sticks of your 512mb cmx512-3200c2pt memory. One of the sticks gives me memtest errors at test#5. If I raise the voltage to 2.8v like you recommended to someone else to try, it fixed that error, however it still gets errors later at test#7.

 

The other stick doesn't appear to have a problem that I can see yet anyways. Or it gave no errors testing.

 

I used all the default settings in the bios (2.5-3-3-8) and 200fsb with 200mhz memory.

 

Here is my Motherboard info:

DFI LANPARTY UT nF3 250Gb (using the latest bios)

amd64 2800+

 

Here is my memory info (2 sticks are both the same)

cmx512-3200c2pt

Lot 0325045

xms3202 v1.2

Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6

 

Change that, see if it helps.

I tried this just now (2.5-3-3-6) and it still gives errors on that one stick. While I had it in there I also tried 2-3-3-6 with the same result of errors.

This is probably a stupid question, but I assume I would just send the one stick in? Or will I need to send both in for potential compatability problems?

 

My version number of 1.2, seems a lot lower than what others have posted for this stick. But I have no idea if that matters.

With this platform both modules would need to be exactly matched both in part# and revision and if you send them in for RMA we can only replace them for the same part# that you send in. So this may be the issue and I am sorry if it is the RMA will not solve the problem. But since you said one was passing http://www.memtest.org and one was not I suggested RMAing the failing module. But I am not sure that will solve the problem.

Thank you for the reply. My motherboard is a socket 754 so its doesn't use dual channel anyways I don't think.

 

The one module is definitely bad. So it needs to be replaced either way.

Send in both sticks to make sure they'll play well with each other.

 

I would have to fill out the RMA form again I think? I filled it out for one stick, but didn't receive an RMA number yet though.

 

I wasn't sure what I'm allowed to do.
