hlygrail Posted November 2, 2005 Share Posted November 2, 2005 (New account here, no sig yet, sorry...) Building a new DFI rig for my father and having trouble with the memory (memtest errors in test 8, of course). Specs as follows: - DFI Infinity nF4 Ultra (socket 939) - AMD64 3500+ (Venice, 90nm) - Corsair TwinX1024-3200PT (2x512MB DDR, dual-channel) - Seasonic S12-430 (430W PSU) - MSI Geforce 6600LE ("lite" version, no secondary power connector) - regurgitated hard disks / DVD drives from old box Having built a DFI LanParty nF4 Ultra-D for myself and ending up populating it with TwinX1024-4400C25 (PC4400) memory before I was happy [Prime95/memtest stable at 280x9], I went with Corsair, and not the cheapest, on his box as well. Imagine my chagrin when I got BSOD after BSOD while trying to install WinXP Pro, and trouble copying files off disc (CD is good -- tested on another box). Memtest86+ shows 4-6 errors in each pass of test #8. Did some digging and it looks like the Vtt circuit on these boards is weak and may not provide enough voltage. I've tried upping the memory voltage to 3.0v and CPU up as well with same (bad) results. Looks like I'll be returning this memory to Newegg as well, unless there's a good bank of settings that will make this work. Suggestions for how to adjust the nF4 to work with TwinX-3200PT, or suggestions for alternative memory that WILL work? I'd like to stick with Corsair, but the prevailing "wisdom" is that DFI boards don't LIKE Corsair memory (though my LanParty nF4 Ultra-D w/ DDR500 proves otherwise!)...
