imotic Posted October 27, 2006 Share Posted October 27, 2006 sorry for the crosspost, but i haven't received a response in the compatibility questions forum and i'm not sure which forum is the right place. i've had some Corsair RAM for a little more than 2 years now, never had much of a problem. a few days ago, i bought some new processors, and bam, i'm having RAM issues, and i can't figure it out. do i need to buy new RAM? do i need to change my BIOS settings? i've tried running memtest, and when I have ECC turned on, it reboots immediately. when i have it turned off, the tests fail pretty quickly (it doesn't seem to get all the way through), and i KNOW that ECC needs to be turned on for this mobo. here are the relevant system specs: MSI K8T Master2 motherboard 2 Opteron 248 processors Corsair XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) ECC Registered Dual Channel TWINX1024RE-3200LLPT the processors are an upgrade from a single 242 processor. as far as BIOS settings are concerned, everything is pretty standard for these processors, and my motherboard doesn't really give many options. RAM frequency: 200 MHz RAM voltage: auto (i can choose somewhere between 2.5V and 2.65V in 0.05 increments) Chip-Kill ECC mode: enabled DDR timing: auto [CAS latency: 2.0] CPU clock ratio: 11x (standard for these processors) CPU voltage: 1.5V (again, standard) Auto-detect PCI Clock: enabled Spread spectrum: enabled CPU clock: 200 MHz i bought the RAM from Newegg in july of 2004, i'm not sure what my warranty options are, if any; i'm not even convinced that the RAM is bad, but i'm unaware of any kind of compatibility issues here, especially any that would be created by introducing processors that are only a little better than the one i had before. please, any and all suggestions are helpful; i'm also kind of looking for a "final word" by someone smart at Corsair (or anywhere) that can put a definitive stamp on this issue. or ANYBODY who knows more than i do, really.
