Hey all


I have been reading a few threads about not mixing RAM types etc.. but I still have a question :biggrin:


I have an Abit AV8 mainboard with a 3500 A64 CPU. It was running happily on 1GB (2 x 512MB) of CMX512-3200C2PRO (XMS3202v4.1)


I have added in 1GB (2 x 512MB) of CMX512-3200C2PT (XMS3202v4.2).


The system runs in Dual Channel mode at 2-3-3-6 2T and passes Memtest+ 1.65 over at least two passes.


When I get into Windows (XP SP2) its a different story alltogether! I get anything ranging from the screen going blank for a split second to the whole system hanging for up to 10-15 seconds and then returning back to normal. If I run just 1GB (even mixing the modules) it all works fine (in fact I have 1 of each in the box now in Dual Channel).


Can this be fixed by loosening the timings? I've been doing a little playing over the past day or so but was hoping maybe Ram Guy could put me straight :)
