difference between TWINX2048-3200 and 3200C2


Recommended Posts

I've been running a TWINX2048-3200 on my Asus A8N SLI Premium board for over two months with no problems, and tonight i started receving lots of blue screens and corrupt data from file and network activity.


I switched the memory down to an old pair of 512 ValueSelects I had lying around, and the problems stopped.


After reading the forums a bit I see that the 3200C2 is recommended for my mobo, but never the 3200. What is the difference?


If the 3200 works fine, should I setup an RMA for the chips?


I also tested the chips 1 at a time running at 1024 single channel, and the system was still unstable, although made it a bit longer without errors.


I'm currently running a burn-in test on the ValueSelect pair with Sandra 2007. To see if maybe any other parts fail.

Test one stick at a time in each slot using Memtest86+.


Try these settings:


CAS Latency (tCL): 3

RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3

Row Precharge (tRP): 3

Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8


Memory Voltage: 2.7-2.8 Volts (Warrantied up to, but not over, 2.90 volts)

All other settings to defaults.

Ok! I tested each stick, and one of them is definately bad, it gives nothing but red errors while its installed.


Now, since the memory is only 2 months old, I need to request an RMA?


I can run on this ValueSelect ram until the unit is replaced.


Also, do I RMA just the bad one, or the pair, since they are paired?


Thanks for all your help!
