URGENT Question... DFI nF4 SLI-DR + Corsair 3500LLPRO 2GB + FX-55 Clawhammer = Bad???


Recommended Posts

I have a computer with following component below...:


Motherboard : DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR (7/04-2BTA)

CPU : AMD Athlon64 FX-55 ClawHammer

Memory : Corsair Twinx2048-3500LLPRO 2GB 1GB x 2 <-

Graphic Card : MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E (Lite) 256MB PCI-E

Primary HDD : 2 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 250GB SATA150

Secondary HDD : 2 x Western Digital Caviar SE 250GB SATA 150

Backup HDD : 1 x Western Digital Caviar SE 320GB UATA100

Primary DVD/CD Drive : NEC ND-3500A Black

Secondary DVD/CD Drive : SAMSUNG TS-H552U/BEBN Black

FDD/Flash Card Reader : MITSUMI Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal 8 in 1 Floppy Drive

Fan Controller : VANTEC NXP-201-BK Nexus Fan Control Panel

Power Supply Unit : PC Power & Cooling 510 SLI-PFC ATX12V 510W PSU

Case : Lian Li PC-V1100 Black Silent Series


Now, my question is why is my new Corsair memory not like to work with the current setup? I previously had a pair of Crucial Ballistix PC3200 512MB memories making a total of 1GB, and I've never had any problems with them. After I changed my memory, my mobo started to beep and would not boot. I've already talk to few people at DFI-Street.com and they say it's most likely the compatibility issue between my CPU and Memory...


Is that true? I have a AMD FX-55 Clawhammer (with 130nm, not 90nm) and like I said, the Corsair Twinx2048-3500LLPRO 2GB 1GB x 2...


Can anyone help me solve this problem? If it is the mobo's issue, what other mobo do you recommand?


Thanks for any help in advance,

Set your memory like so:


CAS Latency (tCL): 2

RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3

Row Precharge (tRP): 2

Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6


Memory Voltage: 2.75 Volts

All other settings to defaults.


Test one stick at a time in each slot using Memtest86+.


Actually, that's what I did, and Mem Vol to 2.8v. Absolutely no luck tho'.
