2 sticks CMX512 -- 3200C2PT bad

Recommended Posts

I have 2 512MB sticks of this, and both appear to be bad. I am running the memtest off of the newest version of the SUSE DVD. I stopped testing the first one at 473 errors, and the second one is over 1100 errors right now.

 

Do I need to do anything else to test them?

 

These are on an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe board.

What CPU / FSB do you have?

 

What is the exact revision # of each stick? Is it a TwinX pack?

How To Read the Memory Label

 

Did you test each stick in the same slot?

It is an Athlon XP 2800+, 333 FSB

 

It is not a Twin-X pack. The rev number's are: 0337116 and 0338041.

 

I tried each in a different slot.

Please try these settings and test with http://www.memtest.org to be sure:

CPU Freq: 166 MHz

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 166MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 7T

That is what I tested at, except for CAS was set at 2 instead of 2.5. Since these are supposed to run at 2, is that not an acceptable test?

XMS3200C2 would be rated at Cas 2.5 on AMD platform, and to make sure its not some other issue not to mention only a Twinx set would rated at the tested settings with 2 modules only. Single modules may or may not run at Cas 2 when mixing them. But would not be gaurenteed, and as above on AMD cas 2.5 would be suggested. sorry!

 

However, I have no problem replacing them if you want to just try that.

Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

Let's get them both 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!

 

 

Thanks - I did the online form last week and today I sent an email since I hadn't heard back. Hopefully we will get this knocked out.
