TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX & Asus P5N-E SLI


Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded from 4x1gb 5-5-5-18 XMS2 to the 2x2gb 4-4-4-12 DHX as I mentioned in the title.


I popped the sticks in and set the timings and voltage (4-4-4-12 @ 2.1V @ 800 Mhtz) in the BIOS and ran Memtest.


I believe the program produced errors on #6 and #8 tests. I then put the timings on auto (which probably reduced it to 5-5-5-18) and put the speed to 667 mhtz (basically what I was running before... had to reduce the speed due to the 4x1gb sticks). Memtest produced no errors though 1 pass..


Initial thoughts?


I know I had Legacy USB enabled...I forgot to turn it off before I started Memtest. Tonight, I plan to disable that and re-run both sticks at what they are rated (4-4-4-12 @ 2.1 @ 800 mhtz). If that produces any errors, I plan on testing each stick individually then go from there.


I just don't understand why it would produce errors at 4-4-4-12 but not at 5-5-5-18. Leads me to think that it is timing/mobo related rather than bad RAM.


Any thoughts would be appreciated.
