Hello from Germany :D.

 

Today i got my new Corsair XMS 4000PT Kit but i doesnt work stable.

 

I turned the FSB to 250, the Multi down to 9 and the HT to 4, so ...

 

 

CPU is up to 2250 MHz (its an A64 3700+)

HT is 4 x 250 = 1000 Mhz

DDR is 250 Mhz @ 3-4-4-8-1T @ 2.7 V but the Ram doesnt work, im so angry :D.

 

When i start the 3DMark05, it works for a minute but than the system Restart!

Im running my ASUS Board with the newest 1011 BIOS!

 

Pls help me!

I would try the memory voltage set to 2.8 Volts and maybe try and set the CPU Vcore up a few thenths and run http://www.memtest.org on ur system. And please set the Command Rate to Auto as well. If you still have problems I would test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org to make sure one is not failing.

OK, at the time im not on my PC, but i already load the Test and burn it on an Bootable CD, right?

 

And you dont think the modules will run with CommandRate 1?

And what is with Legacy USB set disable or off? I read this in a few posts from you!

I would suggest testing with it set to 2t then once its stable try it at 1T but use http://www.memtest.org to test it.

Command Rate is not really a memory setting and would be dependant on the make and model of MB and PSU and the specific CPU you have installed. You might look this setting up on http://www.rojakpot.com and get a better explanation.

But i dont OC to much, the CPU run @ 2250 MHz, 50 more then the Standard "Takt", dont no what it means in English. :p:

 

The HT is on 4 x 250 = 1000 Mhz

 

RAM is on 250 MHz @ 3-4-4-8-1T @ 2,8 Volts

 

Tomorrow i will be knew if it runs ore not, if it failed, i contact you!

 

Sorry for my bad english knowledge !

 

My ICQ: 178036622

Now..... if tested the RAM with Memtest 86+ version 3.2.

 

@ 200 MHz with timings like 2,5-3-3-6 @ 2,75 volts i pass two times with NO Errors! Perfect stable.

 

But as i start the Test @ 250 Mhz with 3-4-4-8-1T @ 2,8 V, I pass two times with over 789 Errors! So i set Commandrate to 2T, but the same problem exists!

 

I dont know what is to do now, i have no other ideas! You?

Have you tested the modules one at a time? And have you tried them in the other two slots?

And I would try and increase the CPU voltage and try the HTT at 3 and see if that makes a difference. If you have a failing module it will become clear when tested separately. But if it’s just the CPU or MB topping out you will get close to the same results with each module running one up! I have no problem, replacing your modules if you would like to try that, please use the On Line RMA Request Form and we will be happy to replace them or it.

Sorry RAM GUY, that Modules are so boring and i decide to send them back to the onlineshop where i buy it.

Now, i got 2GB G.SKill ZX, just PC3200 with Timings from 2-3-2-5 1T, but 230 MHz should be possible! Thanks so for your help!

 

Ohhh..., and the Moduls arent defect, i have tested them in two other PCs, and there they work 100 % stable, only in my PC is a Problem. I got the same BIOS settings as in the other 2 PCs, but no strike! Seemed to be a problem with my MoBo, ****ing ASUS :D: !

 

Next will be an DFI.

 

So on......... hf & gl
