Asus P5b-vm +corsair Twin2x2048-6400

Hi

I bought intel core2duo E6600 and MB ASUS P5B-VM and decided to buy TWIN2X2048-6400, since CM2X1024-6400C4 is on the QVL (http://www.asus.com/999/download/products/1312/1312_10.pdf) i thought it would be compatible, however many applications dont work correctly and the memtest reports errors.

I havent done any changes in bios yet.

 

Any advise is welcome if the MB is not compatible please let me know about some alternative choices.

There should not be a problem with this MB, just get the latest bios and then load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 2.0 Volts and set the settings manually to the tested settings, Cas 5-5-5-12 and Write to Precharge Delay to 15 and test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org to be sure and with ASUS you might have to Disable legacy USB when running Memtest.

ok i set the voltage to 1.95V and ddr2 to 800MHz and turned of the USB legacy, but in this MB`s bios seems to be no Cas or Precharge Delay settings:(:

 

After memtest booted(yet just with both modules inside) it passed twice with no errors, on the third pass it reported error (#7 or 8 i think it was)

 

Does it mean that with high probability the modules are not defective and the problem is somewhere else?

 

thanks a lot for help
