Bios settings

Recommended Posts

Hi-

My computer

 

Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP Duo motherboard

Intel Pentium 4 640 3.2 GHz CPU

Intel 915P bios v6.00PG

NVIDIA GeForce 6800GT 256mb video card

4 X Corsair CMX512-3200XL (2 matched sets) RAM

550 watt power supply

 

Can you please tell me the best bios settings?

Thanks in advanced.

I would set the Dim Over voltage control to +.3 Volts and and then let the MB set the timings and test the system with http://www.memtest.org to make sure it's stable. If you get errors I would manually set the timings to Cass 3-3-3-8 and see if it will pass.

 

 

 

Adjusted the voltage. Seems to be working good so far.

Would adjusting the Cass to 3-3-3-8 make it faster or slower?

 

Thanks

Cass 3 would be slower than Cass 2. And when you install more than 2 modules you would need to slow the memory down because of chipset loading.

 

 

Oh! Would I be better of staying with 2 x 512 at Cass 2,

or 4 x 512 at Cass 3.

 

Thanks for the help.

Since you have them I would go ahead and test the modules one ata time to make sure one is not failing then set the timings to Cass 3-3-3-8 and set the Dim Voltage to +.2 Volts and see if that makes the system stable.

No, can't get it stable with the 4 x 512 setup.

How come the MB has space for 4?

I guess i'll keep the two new sticks as spares.

1. TwinX pack, right?

 

2. What is the revision # of each TwinX pack?

 

3. How did you test them? One stick at a time in each slot, or just a pair at a time? What test did you run within memtest? What did they fail? What BIOS settings did you test them at?
