I think my twinx went bad

Recommended Posts

I bought a twinx pair of 512 mb (total 1 gig) on 2/28. About 1 wk ago my computer started having weird issues( shutdowns, errors, etc.) I tried swapping everyting out piece by piece. When I replace my memory with some older memory, everything works fine. When I put back in this new memory the problems start again, which leads me to believe that it is the memory.


My specs:

AMD Athlon 64 3500-939

MSI KN8-Neo2 Platinum- latest bios and drivers

1 gig Corsair TwinX CMX512-3200LL XMS3205v3.2 0507061-5


Please respond by email if you could assist in any way or grant me an RMA#.

Thank You

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS installed on your MB and set the following BIOS settings;

DRAM Configuration :

Max Memclock: Limit or 200

1T/2T Memory Timing : 1T

CAS# latency (Tlc): 2

RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd): 3

Min RAS# active time (Tras): 6

Row precharge Time (Trp): 2

High Performance Mode : Manual

Aggressive timing : DISABLED

Dynamic Overclocking: DISABLED

Spread Spectrum : Enabled

HT Frequency : 5x

Cool’n’Quiet: Enable

Adjust CPU Rotation: Startup

Adjust CPU FSB Frequency: 200

Adjust AGP Frequency: 66

Adjust CPU VID 1.500v

CPU Voltage: By CPU VID

Memory Voltage : 2.75

AGP Voltage: 1.50V *1.6V if you have 9200 or 9600 ATI or 5200 or 5700 Nvidia card.

All other settings should be left to MB default settings.

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
