Memory Problem and Question


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a new system from mwave and one of the memory sticks is bad. The system would blue screen w/ page fault errors about every 5 minutes. So, I pulled first one and then the other stick from my system. With the one (bad), I continued to have the problem. With the other I've been stable for 2 days without any issues.

 

2 questions:

 

Is this sufficient for a RMA?

I purchased TWINX2048-3200C2PT from mwave and received 2 CMX1024-3200C2PT modules per the label on the memory. Is this correct?

 

Thanks,

Sean

I started using only default settings and had problems.

 

Based on some of the posts I'd seen on the board w/ the RAM Guy suggestions I tweaked the memory voltage to 2.7 (I believe, I'm at work as I write this) but had no luck w/ that either.

 

I have not tweaked any other setting for the memory or CPU.

 

Thanks,

Holihan

Please load setup/optimized defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, XMS2700C2 Cass 2-3-3-6 for example or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.

I set the timings on the bios and ran memtest on both memory sticks. The "good" one had no errors. The suspected "bad" one had a bunch of errors at test 5.

 

I'm going to RMA them back to mwave unless you think there's reason to try something else.

 

thanks for the help and advice.
