TWINX1024-3200XL unstable with second stick installed


Recommended Posts

Hey all, just wanted to put something up regarding my package of TWINX1024-3200XL.

 

I won this stuff in an online contest held by Extreme Overclocking on September 1st, 2004. Recieved the modules and they have been running fantastically ever since. I've been running my 2500+M at 2.2GHz for a long time now, with both the 3200XL and another 3200C2PRO module that I have, with good stability (48hrs+ Prime95 & 48hrs+ Memtest86+ stable). Recently, I have been getting BSODs when the CPU was under heavy load and when there is music playing... the BSOD is very reproducable. I downclocked the CPU and RAM (they run 1:1), and that fixed the problems.

 

Being curious, I tried the CPU in another similar system, and it was able to main 2.2GHz with stability. I've also changed out the power supply just in case (from an Antec TruePower 430 to an XXX Powerstream 420). I've tried another 2500+ and my 3200C2 PRO in this current motherboard and it was able to hold 2.2GHz. I tried taking out one stick of RAM just to isolate them from each other, and to my surprise, one of the sticks is able to hold 2.2GHz. I currently have the second stick sitting in it's packaging... wondering what to do.

 

Now, I know that TCCD requires 2.75V, but my motherboard doesn't have a midrange value between 2.7V and 2.8V, so I give it 2.8V. Timings are 2-2-2-5 as they should be. CPU and RAM run 1:1 with one another. More specifications are located in my signature. Any sort of other info can be asked here and I'll try to answer them ASAP.

Hehe, I have the same modules (though I dunno if it's TCCD, but sounds like it)

 

 

As soon as I got them, I was recommended to use them at 2-2-2-5-1T @ 2.8v by RAM GUY, which worked like a charm.... but when I forgot to set these settings after a bios update (spd settings is like 2-3-2-5-2T 2.7 and i dunno why) I got a lot of bluescreens under a lot of load. these memories are powerhungry!

 

other hardware:

 

AMD64 3500+ NewCastle (old)

A8V Deluxe (I will destroy it with a sledgehammer next week when I get my ASRock 939Dual) I so hate the A8V Deluxe.. nothing good about it... sata controller fails above 210 FSB and it has no agplock :)

v1.x of the A8V doesn't have AGP lock, v2.0 does.
