Compatibility issue with CM72SD 2700 on Asus AV333 ?


Recommended Posts

Hello all.


I own an Asus A7V333 with an AMD AthlonXP2100+ (1,73GHz).

And I changed recently the old memory module (PC266 CL2.5 512Mb DDR, not a Corsair module) with a CM72SD1024RLP-2700/S Corsair module.

This is for the context.


During the installation, and on the first boot, i got a blue screen of death (think it was a 0x0000000A IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL), after that, the problem disappeared, but it came again (there, I'm sure it's a 0x0...A IRQL_N_L_O_E), when running a particular MMORPG, but no problem with others, nor with other applications (browser, media player, dvd player, etc.), and it came again recently on a particular video plugin running in browser (can't remember which) and after many reboots and as much blue screens, i gave up and replaced the old memory module.

That's for the problem.


I got MemTest and ran it for hours on my new Corsair module => seems like this module get no problem.

I went to your configurator to see what the compatibility can tell me => the list of compatible modules don't show mine (CM72SD1024...2700), despite my MB theorically accepts PC2700 modules of 1Gb, is that normal ?


Should I manually change settings in BIOS ?

Should I change for another Corsair module ? And which ?

Or what ?


Thanks in advance.

This MB does not really support registered ECC memory.

Oups, thanks for this precision, I didn't understand that and this piece of information will be useful.

Is RLP standing for Registered something ?


I am not mixing this module with another.

And I tried to load default settings for the BIOS and tested the module with MemTest, I'm not an expert but MemTest returned no error message of any kind, so I suppose this module is perfectly ok.


The fact is that my online reseller (LDLC) offers a limited choice, which one of the following modules should I choose ?

(I cleaned the list from the ECC reg modules. And my only need is to get 1 Gb instead of 512 Mb, no need to get the fastest one.)

  • Corsair CM2X1024-5400C4 - 1 Go DDR2-SDRAM PC5400 XMS2 (no lifetime warranty ?)
  • Corsair CM2X1024-6400 - 1 Go DDR2-SDRAM PC6400
  • Corsair CM2X1024-6400PRO - 1 Go DDR2-SDRAM PC6400 XMS2
  • Corsair CM72SD1024-3200 - 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC3200 ECC Unbuffered - CM72SD1024-3200
  • Corsair CMSS1GBR72-400D2 - 1 Go DDR2-SDRAM PC3200
  • Corsair CMX1024-3200C2 - 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC3200 CAS 2 (no lifetime warranty ?)
  • Corsair CMX1024-3200C2PRO - 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC3200 C2 PRO
  • Corsair CMX1024-3200PRO - 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC3200 (no lifetime warranty ?)
  • Corsair System Select 1 Go DDR2-SDRAM PC4200 - CMSS1GB-533
  • Corsair System Select 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC2100 ECC - CMSS1GBR72-266
  • Corsair System Select 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC2700 - CMSS1GB-333
  • Corsair System Select 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC2700 ECC - CMSS1GBR72-333
  • Corsair System Select 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC3200 - CMSS1GB-400
  • Corsair System Select 1 Go DDR-SDRAM PC3200 ECC - CMSS1GBR72-400

Is System Select compatible with my MB ? If so, I think the System Select PC2700 is the best suitable for me.

But if none of them is really compatible and interesting, I should change my reseller.


Thanks again. :)
