Bad TWIN CMX1024-3200CPT Modules


Recommended Posts

I believe I have received some bad RAM. I recently added it to my system ,and usually, the system boots fine, but it will sporadically give a BSOD and reboot. I have checked the BSOD stop code, and it points to memory being the problem. I ran Memtest on the modules both together and separately, and it always shows up with a lot of errors. I have ensured the timings are manually set to what they should be and have taken the voltage to 2.8. Nothing seems to help.

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 http://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.

My motherboard gives a whole lot of extra settings for memory timing. Could you tell me what these are supposed to be?


CAS [2.5]

Tras [6]

Trcd [3]

Trp [3]

Trc [11]

Trfc [13]

Trwt [5]

Twr [3]

1T/2T Memory timing [2T]

S/W DRAM over 4G Remapping [Disabled]

H/W DRAM over 4G Remapping [Disabled]



Clock speed is 200Mhz (400 DDR), and voltage is set at 2.75. It boots, but still causes sporadic blue screen errors and fails tests 2-7 on memtest.
