Compatibility Issue with Asus P5W DH Deluxe

Recommended Posts

For starters, I have an Asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard with a core 2 duo e6600. The memory I am using is the Twin2x2048-6400C4. I also have the latest bios for my motherboard. The problem is during the installation of a game or something along those lines, my system reboots and I lose the installation. I am currently using all the auto settings in my mobo, but i have tried a bunch of various other settings, like setting my ram to 667 and 2.1v. I am going to run memtest when I get home from work today. Does anyone have any recommended settings to get my system stable? Thanks for the help!

Please load setup/optimized defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 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" I would set the memory frequency at 667MHz as well 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.

Ok, just so I'm perfectly clear. Set me Dim voltage to 2.7 and since my ram is tested for 4-4-4-12, put the timings as that. My only question is the RAM says it is rated for 4-4-4-12 at 2.1V, so would putting it at 2.7V make it more stable in theory?

Just an update for you. I tested both modules of ram and they turned out fine. So I decided to put in sticks that I know work from my old rig. Well, I had the same problem. So i proceeded to troubleshoot and didn't find a solution. Eventually, I decided to reformat and reinstall windows. As of right now, that seems to have fixed whatever problem I have. I won't be able to mess with it some more until sunday.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and then test the module/modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org!

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. In addition, with this MB you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

I would try the modules one at a time and reset your bios with the jumper!

DDR2 Memory runs at:

DDR2-533 = 266 Clock Frequency 2 X 266 = DDR2 533

DDR2-667 = 333 Clock Frequency 2 X 333 = DDR2 667

DDR2-800 = 400 Clock Frequency 2 X 400 = DDR2 800

DDR2-1066 = 533Clock Frequency 2 X 533 = DDR2 1066

 

Intel CPU:

533 MHz = 133 MHz Clock Freq. 133 X 4

800 MHz = 200 MHz Clock Freq. 200 X 4

1066 MHz = 266 MHz Clock Freq. 266 x 4

I suspect some other problem but let's get them both replaced. Please use the RMA request found in TSXpress or follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! And please note that you are from the forum!
