VS1GB667D2 + ASUS P5WD2-E Premium = CRC Errors ?

Hello there,

 

I've already posted here for a bad memory replacement story. Now it seems that Memtest86+ runs without any errors on both modules connected with 5-5-5-12... @1.9v

 

The issue is that I had several (random) CRC errors with Winrar... On any hard drives I have (Seagate S-ATA II). So my guess is the culprit is my RAM configuration / tweaks.

 

Can you guys help me and tell me what are the definitely SAFE tweaks to make in my BIOS (latest flash) ? Because I'm working night and day on my computer so I have no interrest for OC.

 

I have 2 x VS1GB667D2 modules and an ASUS P5WD-E Premium, with a Pentium D 960 processor.

 

Here's my current bios settings that you may find useful to resolve my case !

 

CPU Frequency = 200

DRAM Frequency = 667Mhz (maybe that I should tweak it to 533mhz ?)

Memory Voltage = 1.9v (maybe that I should tweak it to 2.1v ?)

CPU Core Voltage = 1.2875v (instead of 1.30v, is that useful btw ?)

 

FSB Termination Voltage = 1.30v (adviced in the Asus P5WD2-E Premium MB forums)

MCH Chipset Voltage = 1.50v (adviced in the Asus P5WD2-E Premium MB forums)

ICH Chipset Voltage = 1.05v (adviced in the Asus P5WD2-E Premium MB forums)

 

DRAM CAS # Latency = 5

DRAM RAS# Precharge = 5

DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay = 5

DRAM RAS# Activate to Precharge = 12

Write Recovery Time = 5

 

Hyperpath 3 = Enabled

DRAM Throttling Threshold = Auto

 

I saw that the specs for this VS1GB667D2 stick was 5-5-5-15-2T... What does 2T stands for ? And what Write Recovery Time ?

 

I'm not a specialist here... I'm just trying to make my PC run rock solid for professional Audio use...

Thanx in advance !

R E S O L V E D !!!!!

 

After some testings, here's the tweaks that erradicated any CRC errors with Winrar, and I guess a lot of BSOD (and trust me I've seen a lot of them) in the future !

 

If you own a P5WD2-E Premium and 2 x 1 VS1GB667D2, with a Pentium D 960, here's the most rock solid tweaks to make in your bios :

 

DRAM Frequency = 533Mhz

Memory Voltage = 2.1v

 

Do not select By SPD, but enter these number manually :

DRAM CAS # Latency = 5

DRAM RAS# Precharge = 5

DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay = 5

DRAM RAS# Activate to Precharge = 15

Write Recovery Time = 2

 

Hope it'll help people in the same boat !

Thanx Ramguy for all your posts, and for this fantastic support platform, you made my day !
