Update With More issues


hemos

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I had posted earlier about some CMX512-3200C2PT RAM that I have. I thought that I fixed the issue, but found that when I memtest86+ the RAM it was generating a lot of errors. I had changed the CAS settings to 3-3-2-6, per the testing parameters of the XMS3200C2 that was posted online.

 

One of the sticks of RAM will complete, but generates 24 errors. The other one hits a point where it's generating constant string of errors. I've tested them together and seperately, as well as putting them into both RAM slots of the machine. Indeed, when the RAM that generates the stream of errors is in RAM Slot 1, it shuts down the machine at 52% of pass.

 

I've also tested the same setup with Auto SPD.

 

Any suggestions?

Getting failures with both modules would suggest some other problem.

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

What CPU / FSB / Motherboard do you have?

 

B. CPU: Intel 4, 3 Ghz

 

C. FSB 800 Mhz

 

D. For BIOS settings, I've left it on normal default sets; CAS is set to 2-3-3-6, DRAM is SPD. The bios is Phoenix Bios 6.00PG. The bios version is 1.09.

 

E. Mother board is the Springdale chipset: Intel 82865G + ICH5 chipsets

 

 

 

Is it a TwinX pack?

 

Yes, it is.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and just set the timings to By SPD and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and lets make sure. If you do get errors with one module then lets get them replaced, However, this MB will not let you set the Dim Voltage and I would suggest 2.7 Volts for these modules when running them at Cass 2-3-3-6.

Good morning,

 

Went through and did some more testing. I switched into another machine; one of the DIMMs is fine, the other throws up a basically infinite amount of errors once it hits a certain memory segment.
