Bad VS 1GB 400 C3 RAM


Recommended Posts

My system is an AMD 3200+ (barton core)

motherboard : 7NNXP Gigabyte

Powersuply : antec 550 watt


I've got a dual channel low latency (c2) corsair twinmatched pair (2*512mb, pc3200 ddr) & 1 value select 1 gig pc3200 Corsair.


My sytem has worked without any problem for more then two months.

Last weeks I suddenly got blue screens.

I did a memory test with memtest86.

First test with all memory in it. --> failure with test 5

Second test with only 2*512 mb in it. --> no failure for 12 hours.

Third test with only the 1 gig value select : failure.


I checked every possible order. So the memtest was done with the value select ram in Dimm1, Dimm2, Dimm3 & Dimm4.


Normally I had Dimm1 = 512 mb

Dimm2= 512mb

Dimm3= 1 gig.


I removed the 1 gig ram a week ago, & my system runs without any blue screen or crash since then.

Are you trying to mix these modules? If so please try the Value select module by it self and reset your bios and load setup/optimized ddefaults and set the Dim Over Voltage Control to +.2 Volts and test the module with http://www.memtest.org to be sure. But you WILL NOT be able to mix our XMS and Valeu Select in this system.
