I have a problem with RAM and need some help.


Recommended Posts

I recently built a new computer to use for myself. I got Corsair 2x 512 mb valueselect RAM. I have been having stop errors on windows when playing games or sometimes even just surfing the web. I took it to a computer shop to the guys that know what they're doing and they told me it was the ram.


They told me it wasn't compatible and wasn't really meant for gaming. I am just wondering if I can return this value ram and replace it for the XMS pc 3200 ram and just pay for the differnce, I know it costs more.

Corsair Modules Recommended for the Asus A8V


Definitely compatible. Corsair can't upgrade them, nor take your money, because they didn't sell them to you.


Try this:


CAS Latency (tCL): 2.5

RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3

Row Precharge (tRP): 3

Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8


Memory Voltage: 2.7 or 2.8 Volts

All other settings to defaults.


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