Memory Issue


Recommended Posts

Hi all, first time here for me so i'm not sure how this all goes.


I built a system for the first time and am experiencing some weird problems that lead me to think I have some bad memory or even the wrong memory installed.I have tried this memory in 2 seperate machines and both will give same error screens pertaining to memory dumps.Here are the #'s from memory sticks -


CMX512-3200XL(x2) xms3208v1.2 / 0504054-1 400mhz


I have searched several different forums and have googled my board and memory for a timing change that might help but nothing I try has worked.Also,I cannot find this memory on Corsair's site.Can someone please shed some light on this? P.S. these are matched sticks.


Asus A8N5X

Athlon +3200

Nvidia 6600 vid

WD 250gb sata

Download memtest from http://www.memtest.org and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk.

Enter your BIOS and set:




DRAM Configuration

Memclock index value: 400MHz


Cas Latency (tCL) = 2

Min RAS# Active time (tRAS) = 5

Ras to Cas delay (tRCD) = 2

Row Precharge Time (tRP) = 2

Row Cycle Time (tRC) = Auto

Row Refresh Cyc Time (tRFC) = Auto

Read to Write Time (tRWT) = Auto

Write Recovery Time (tWR) = Auto

1T/2T Memory Timing: 2T

S/W DRAM Over 4G Remapping = Disabled

H/W DRAM Over 4G Remapping = Disabled


Jumperfree Configuration


Overclock profile: Manual

CPU frequency (HTT): 200

PCI Express : 100mhz

DDR voltage : 2.8

CPU multiplier : 11

CPU voltage : Auto

Boot to the optical drive with the memtest disk and allow for two full passes.

Okay, I ran MemTest and I got some kind of an error during the test.I hit Print Screen but cant remember how to pull that up.....!!!!


Anyways,is there something I need to do in order to verify the memory is bad or possibly a wrong setting or something?
