On a pair of TwinX one module is reporting errors on memtest


Recommended Posts

Hi

Just by a pair of CMX1024-3200 to replace my pair of 512 (from corsair also)

And one of the module is reporting errors

 

What i have done with memtest :

- swapped memory modules

- in bios I setted all latency times and cycles to their maximum values

- used one memory module (the bad one)

under those conditions : memtest reports me errors right away

 

But you must know that

- I am now using (for 2 years) a TwinX 3200 2x512 without any problem on my motherboard

- If i test the good memory module everything is fine

 

What can I do as ...(I am not very lucky) the shop from which I bought my ram is now closed !

Please load setup/optimized defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X 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" 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.

On the two modules only one of them is reporting error in memtest

I tested (to be sure)

- bad module only in first slot

- good module in first slot and bad module in slot two

- +0.2v in my gigabyte bios like you said

- I tried also to set to their maximum all latency times

well in all those cases memtest is reporting error (happilly on the first pass first test so it is not taking me hours !)

 

Please note that I have a pair of TwinX 2x 512 3.3.3.8 running without any problems using those slots on this motherboard

 

PS : Congratulations for your FlashVoyager GT its a great usb key
