neonightmare Posted January 7, 2006 Share Posted January 7, 2006 I set up a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum system last year with an AMD 64 3200+ CPU. At the time I bought two 512M Corsair ValueSelect dimms. They weren't stable in dual-channel operation, which I chalked up to them not being a matched pair, and ran the system in single channel mode. I recently bought a pair of Corsair 512M TWINX dimms and replaced my old memory. When set up for dual-channel, I can't do any better than 1T,3-3-3-8. If I set them to their rated 1T, 2.5-3-3-6 I get random memory corruption problems. I have tried different ram sockets, increasing the ram voltage to 2.75, and flashing the latest bios from MSI. From reading on this site, it was suggested that the memory controller is on the AMD 64 chip itself, and that could be the problem. So, I purchased an AMD 64 X2 4200+ cpu and installed it last night. And I still have the same problems. Stable at 1T-3-3-3-8, errors at 1T-2.5-3-3-6. Am I missing something here? At this point the only thing left to swap would be the motherboard itself. I am not overclocking the system. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
