Leporello Posted December 2, 2005 Share Posted December 2, 2005 Dear Friends, I've recently changed my system from an Intel P4 to an AMD 64 4000+ San Diego. Since the rebuild I've been unable to run a large number of games without them crashing to the desktop. On running Memtest 3.2 I get two similar errors, i.e., "word pair #17556262 or 175556017 (either could be the source)." I can eliminate these errors and the game crashes by reducing the RAM from its default 400 to 333. I've had the Corsair TwinXL 3200 Pro for about two years and apart from requiring a voltage of 2.8v to run stably in my P4 system this memory has always been run a default speeds. I don't overclock. I've looked at the Corsair compatibility page for my Epox 9NPA+Ultra mobo and the particular modules I have don't seem to be listed there, but some similar sopunding modules with slightly different revision numbers are. I should add that I'm fairly certain that my voltages are fine and stable, I have a new Tagan 510W PSU and I've tried an alternative newish 480W PSU. I've monitored my voltages with Sisoft Sandra Pro and all my voltages are well within specs and stable (the graph read outs over multiple burn in test runs show only very minor fluctuations within a narrow band well within specs). I'm aware that this could be either a mobo compatibility issue or an issue with my TwinXL modules. I've had two years good service from the Corsair RAM and would not be averse to replacing it. However, there comes my dilemma. I could replace the Epox motherboard for less than it would cost to replace the memory. I'm not particularly strapped for cash and I'd like to get my system up and running at default speeds so that I can forget about it and get on with my computing. I'd welcome comments or suggestions. Many thanks for your attention. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
