Nforce4 and XMS 3200LL problem


Recommended Posts

I originally had 1x512 and 2x256 modules until I upgraded to an Abit AN8 Fatal1ty and bought another

512 module so I could just use 2 of the 4 slots. The problem I have is intermittent boot failures as well as

BSODs. I've isolated this to the inability of the RAM

to run in dual channel on an Nforce4 motherboard.

I ran memtest at 2-3-2-6/2.7 volts and I always get

errors at test #7. I have the same errors when I use the

ram on my Shuttle SN25P. If I try them on my old ABit

NF7-S (which I already sold w/the 2x256), then

everything is fine.

Could you possibly help me get these modules to run

a 2-3-2-6 or help me RMA them ?

Please test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and I would set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts as well. If you do find one failing then lets get it or them replaced. Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

However; if you get errors with both modules, that would suggest some other problem. And I would try testing the memory in another system to be sure.

Thanks for the reply. I previously ran memtest on both modules at 2.7v

and they both did not have any errors after 3 passes. However, once

I put both modules in, I get errors at test #7. Just to be sure it's not

anything else on the system, I borrowed a pair of 3200XL and memtest

ran fine on the Abit AN8. I also tried the same pair of problem RAM on

a Shuttle SN25P and got the same errors in test #7 with both modules

but none individually. Both 3200LL are XMS3205v1.2.

BTW, I've been trying for several weeks to get the right settings and

so far no luck. Is there anyway I can get them both replaced?
