A8N32 Deluxe + Twinx PC4000 2GB Problems


SiME

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am having problems with my memory. I have a 4400+ x2 and have tried 10x 250mhz fsb and 200mhz memory and it wont work. If I clock the memory to 166Mhz and run 10x 250Mhz FSB 2500mhz it works ok but sometimes still gets errors. I have also tried upping the voltage to 2.8v on the memory and it makes no differance. Also have disabled usb legacy, and have the chipset set at 4x and 16 x 16.

 

I have also tried 9x 250mhz fsb with the memory set to 200mhz and still no go it just wont boot and if it does it locks up memtest after only a few minutes.

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

 

cheers

To Clarify what I said above..

 

 

This setup wont work it will lock up and wont boot 99% of the time...

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 10x

Memory Divider: 200MHz

DRAM Frequency: 250MHz

CPU Frequency: 2500MHz

 

This will work and boot with no errors in memtest...

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 10x

Memory Divider: 166MHz

DRAM Frequency: 208.3MHz

CPU Frequency: 2500MHz

 

This setup wont work it will lock up and wont boot 99% of the time...

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 9x

Memory Divider: 200MHz

DRAM Frequency: 250MHz

CPU Frequency: 2250MHz

 

This will work and boot with no errors in memtest...

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 9x

Memory Divider: 166MHz

DRAM Frequency: 204.5MHz

CPU Frequency: 2250MHz

I would set the HTT Freq to 3 and test the modules one at a time 8-9 X 250 and see if you get the same results with the modules running one up! Also what do you have the CPU VCore set to?

Hi RAMGUY,

 

So far i have tested with two sticks in dual channel...

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 8x

Memory Divider: 200MHz

DRAM Frequency: 250MHz

CPU Frequency: 2000MHz

CPUVolts: 1.38v set in bios (CPUID reports as 1.44v)

 

chipset: 4x (I will lower to 3x and test again)

 

3-4-4-8 1T (Should I be running at 1T?)

2.75v ram

 

Locked up memtest after 11mins :(

RAM GUY: The cpu is a amd x2 4400+ (2200MHz stock) and i have underclocked it to 2000mhz and its still locking up in memtest so I think we can rule out overclocking as the problem.

RAM GUY: I have just done some more testing....

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 8x

Memory Divider: 200MHz

DRAM Frequency: 250MHz

CPU Frequency: 2000MHz

CPUVolts: 1.38v set in bios (CPUID reports as 1.44v)

 

chipset: 3x

 

3-4-4-8 2T

2.75v ram

 

System will not boot at all with two sticks in dual channel. Next I will test with only one stick at a time.

So you are running it at 200 X 10?

 

I have been running it at the following spec with no problems but want to run the ram at its rated speed of 250mhz.

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 10x

Memory Divider: 180MHz

DRAM Frequency: 227.27 MHz

Memory Divider: 11

CPU Frequency: 2500MHz

CPU Volts: 1.38v

HTT Multiplyer: 4x

HT Link: 1000MHz

3-4-4-8 1T

2.70v

 

This setup works fine, boots everytime, ran memtest for 10hrs with not 1 error. Also tested with SuperPi SSE, 3DMark05 and Prime95 with no problems.

I would try and lower your over clock to like 220 MHz X 10 and see if the system is more stable.

 

The system is stable at this speed with these timings and speed and I have run a 10 hour mem test with no errors, 3dmark05 tests prime95 tests and super pi tests and it was 100% stable.

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 10x

Memory Divider: 180MHz

DRAM Frequency: 227.27 MHz

Memory Divider: 11

CPU Frequency: 2500MHz

CPU Volts: 1.38v

HTT Multiplyer: 4x

HT Link: 1000MHz

3-4-4-8 1T

2.70v

 

As soon as I set the DRAM frequency to 250MHz the system will not post or boot. I have tried many settings with no success. Next I will test one stick at a time.

RAM GUY, the CPU is definatly not topping out as It wont even boot at 2000MHz and its a 2200MHz cpu! I have tried 3 BIOS versions now, they are 1009, 1103 and the latest 1205 and they all have the same result.

 

The setup below will not post or boot its like the system is dead and thats with the mem running at 250MHz which is what the sticks are supposedly rated too.

 

Refrence Clock: 250MHz

Multiplyer: 8x

Memory Divider: 200MHz

DRAM Frequency: 250MHz

CPU Frequency: 2000MHz (Stock speed is 2200MHz)

CPUVolts: 1.38v set in bios (CPUID reports as 1.44v)

chipset: 3x

3-4-4-8 2T

2.75v ram

Please test the modules one at a time! It’s not clear to what the problem is because you say the system works fine. When you under clock the memory like this:

Reference: Clock: 250MHz

Multiplier: 10x

Memory Divider: 180MHz

You take loading off of the CPU and it will clock higher than it will running one to one. So Again please test the modules one at a time and see how high you can get running one up the system should be able to hit about 265 or so if its not the CPU.
