ASUS A8N-SLI Premium & 2x CMX1024-3200C2PT


Recommended Posts



I'm a gamer...haha. I have been noticing problems over the past few months with a couple of my games after playing them for a while and I've just been dealing with it. I get a sudden sporatic speed boost (like it leeps ahead or lurches ahead - and I know it's not supposed to do it) and given enough time, it gets progressively worse to the point of crashing the programs. Also, when this happens, I can literally tap a key on my keyboard in a text document and I might see it repeated 5 times or more depending on how bad it is (like instead of K, I get KKKKK from just a tap). The only way I have found to clear this problem is to completely shut off the computer; A reboot won't correct it.


Does this MOBO/RAM combo work together?


I purchased the above MOBO and RAM way back in Jan of 2006. Everything seems to be running fine other than this problem.


I realize it is not the first pick in your Memory Configurator. But I did not see/notice that when I first purchased it. But searching for the Motherboard, it does list the above memory as having been tested by Corsair testers.


To the best of my ability, I have gone into the MOBO bios and manually entered the DRAM timings, however, the descriptions in this forum and those in my bios do not quite match up all the way. The only one I don't know about is the "SDRAM Bank Interleave : 4". What is another way of saying this?


Any help would be much appreciated. I just want to either rule this out as a possibility or get it fixed. Thanks! Brett

Failing memory would not cause this type of problem.

The most likely causes would be oen of the following:

1. Driver conflict If you have drivers installed for your Key Board like for a Logitek Wireless KB try and uninstall them, just use the default Windows driver. Also make sure that you have the latest Bios and chipset and Video driuvers installed.


2. Failing MB and or CPU!


3. Weak or noisey PSU!


4. Some type of Virus!


But to be sure I would test the memory with http://www.memtest.org one module at a time and set the memory Voltage and settings to the tested settings (Cas 2-3-3-6 at 2.75 Volts)!
