Lanparty Cfx3200-dr Pc3200xl V1.2 Brainpower


Recommended Posts

I am having a weird issue, I change the ddr cas from ' auto/2.0 ' to 2.5 or 3.0 the system will either not post at all or automaticly reboot before i get to the desktop

 

i changed voltages no effect

lowered ddr multiplier and dropped to 166 no effect

hmmmmm

 

returned to stock speed in bios

set all voltages to spec

set all auto

ran memtest for 4 hours

no errors

 

overclocked to 210 1-1 cpu/ddr @ 5 2 2 2.0 voltage 2.76

ran memtest again

all day while i was at work

no errors

 

ok i would say the ram is ok.

 

 

 

 

 

 

lanparty ut cfx3200-dr motherboard, bios r5d_043c

amd 3200 + venice rev e DH8-E6

corsair pc 3200 xl xms v 1.2 2x512 cmx512 tccd i beleive using the brainpower pcb

pc power and cooling 510 deluxe psu but not pci-e enabled [ no adaper or power cable converted ]

his 1800 gto iceq 3 video card

 

 

I cant find anything on this issue, I can adjust the tras but any other memory setting and i get reboots.

 

i swapped out the xms for corsair value ram and it does 235 fsb all day @ 8 3 3 2.5

 

xms works fine on a nf2 motherboard and will do 460 8 3 3 2.5

 

even changing the cas to 2.5 causes reboots on the 3200-dr which is completely retarted but ok !

 

any ideas ?

 

 

all test were run at the sugested voltage 2.75

also tried other voltages from 2.5 to 2.9 , same issue

 

I am assuming its a motherboard incompatability but I was hopeing someone can shed some lite on this issue.

 

Thank you very much for your time...

last post I was extreeemly tired

 

ok got some sleep

 

 

ok here are some more spacifics of the situation

 

cpu will do 255 = 2550 mhz 24/7 and idle @ 27 c

 

its cooled with a thermaltake xp-90c heatsink with a 92 mm fan

here is a sandra bandwidth test

 

seems the only issue is the cas option

 

does not like anything other than 2.0

 

any ideas ?

pertaining to the Maximum Bus Bandwidth : 9600MB/s (estimated)

 

I have since broke the 10,000mb/s barrier

 

with this ram on a cas 2.0 w 38.2 everest latency test result

 

so what is more important ?

 

cpu mhz

 

or memory bandwidth

I have the same issue. I have an Opteron 165 running on an Abit KN8 ultra (nforce4 ultra).

 

I used to hvae an athlonxp 2500 on an Nforce2. In this system the ram would run CAS 3.0 without any problems and would even run to 230mhz 2-3-2.

 

With my opteron 165 this ram will not run CAS 3.0, or CAS 2.5 . This limits my overclocking somewhat, I run my HTT @ 300 and my ddr divider at 2/3 which equals 200mhz. If I try and raise this HTT too much more I have to settle for less than 200mhz.

 

I've also tested with 4 sticks of 512MB samsung TCCC (2GB). These sticks will run at 240mhz 3-3-3, even with 4 of them.

 

It seems that this ram (corsair PC3200XL) is incompatible with athlon64's as far as running non specified timings.

what is the DDS and DDDS you have set under the bios.., this board need fine tuning for this settings and the Mal and read preamble, i will play check your Tref, auto is generally the bad part for this mobo,

 

Remember the DFI CFX3200 is so different compared to a DFI NF4 ultra or DR, timings are more close to the Venus board, also the voltage seems a littel bit lower of what shown in bios, but you will need a multimeter for this.

the result change a lot from many kit, and i have use only TCCD600 ( OCZ4800EE)..

1. Start your own thread.

2. The above quote is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo wrong. There's tons of posters OCing the crap outta XLs with non-spec'd timings (e.g. 3-4-4-8 @ 250 Mhz, etc).

HI ALL

 

i am running the newest beta bios

 

the pc3200 xl running 8 3 3 2.0 1t @ 245 ddr speed in the orange slots

2.92 or so volts

tref 3120

and passes memtest

350 ht

1400 ldt

2650 cpu

 

allmost 7500 meg everest read bandwidth

 

i happened to stumble across something you big memory guys might not know.

 

in xp pro sp2 32 bit

i installed cacheman 5 from outer tech and increased my io lock limit to 256 meg rebooted and wow desktop is way more snappy.

 

i did have less free mem left but its all good if you got 2 gig or more

 

do not attemp with less that 1 gig of memory

 

my buddy did it on a intel system with 2 gig of CORSAIR and he said he noticed a very nice improvement in the entire system, desktop, apps, games ect

 

 

bump bump 4 corsair
