Compatibility issue with XMS3202v1.1 plus XMS3202v1.5


PrimusSucks

Recommended Posts

Board: Asus P4PE

Bios: 1007

 

I've tried placing the v1.1 in the first slot and the v1.5 in the last two slots, vice-versa, etc. System will not boot (no video - no beeps) if these three modules are in at the same time. V1.1 works fine by itself, and has for a couple years now.

 

After removing conflicting memory, system boots - but boots to the bios as if it thinks something changed and wants verification.

 

I'm not overclocking.

Just pulling the v1.1 is hardly a solution, it makes for a poor paperweight or necklace. I purchased the additional RAM for a reason... and that reason remains.

 

It's the same part#... I ordered the same part#. If it's an issue, it should be listed as a different part#.

 

Also, it's listed quite clearly that CMX512-3200C2PT is one of the "Recommended Modules" for this board... and that's what I bought.

I did not buy CMX512-3200C2PT-v1.1 or CMX512-3200C2PT-v1.5 because they aren't listed as such. There isn't even a notification of this "v.whatever" anywhere on the retail packaging to indicate it's importance.

 

Poor documentation is hardly a reason for having to get shafted.

Can you tell me our modules complete part# & lot code and revosoin (How To Read the Memory Label).

And I would try and manually set the following timings and see if the sysyem will post and pass http://www.memtest.org.

CPU Freq: 133 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 133MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 7T

 

And wired is correct with many of the new MB's you cannot mix memory. You would need to match the modules part# and revision. But please try and set the timings and frequency manually as that will likley solve the problem as long as both modules will run one up.

I don't see where I can set my "memory frequency" to a percentage. My options are quite different.

Yes... setting it to a percentage is not an option.

 

Memory Frequency: 100%

 

Memory Frequency [Auto]

This field determines whether the memory clock frequency is set to be in

synchronous or asynchronous mode with respect to the system frequency.

The options that appear in the popup menu vary according to the CPU

Frequency (MHz). Configuration options: [Auto] [266MHz] [355MHz]

[333MHz]

 

Thanks
