XMS3200XLPT (SD3700, A8N-SLI Deluxe) Memtest/T1 dualchnl issues

Hi there, just wondering if anyone has some advice on the issue I have or whether I have some bad memory and should RMA? I have a new PC set-up running at stock speeds atm (tried auto/manual).

 

With the memory setup in dual channel (blue slots), I cannot get Memtest to pass Test8 (or Sandra2005 Mem Bench), with any memory settings at T1, i've tried varing the voltage from 2.6v-2.8v and loosening the timings from 2,2,2,5 - 2.5,4,4,10. I experience either system hangs or pages of errors depending on the voltage.

 

The one and only occasion I can get memtest to pass is setting mem volts to 2.6v and T2. Any other settings result in errors/hangs.

 

I've also tried bios' 1006, 1007 and 1009-2beta. To the same effect (infact 1007 fails on any settings). I've also tried using the 2 black memory slots.

 

Strangely, both sticks pass memtest/sandra when run seperately (single channel) at 2-2-2-5-T1.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions? something im missing? or is it RMA time? :confused:

 

I bought these sticks as they were recommended for tight T1 timings and excellent overclocking, the fact I cant effectively get them to work at stock is a little frustrating. :(:

 

Thanks.

Andy

Hiya, well i've been testing out the new PC and overclocking, and while im not serious about getting max speeds, I've got 245x11 (2695Mhz) running stable with the std hsf at reasonable temps. The memory is at 2.5-3-3-6-T1 2.75v, so im more than happy. :): Out of interest are these timings about right, is there recommended settings for 250Mhz?
