Recommended Posts

Corsair ram guy,



Hello, good evening. Guy i'd like to know with the kit Dominator XMS2 8500C5D 1066Mhz work 100% on the follow mainboards:




Actualy my asus P5K-Premium has a big problem with the memory slots (only one slot work well +-). So i'll have to buy another board.

Ram guy,


I saw the Dominator Qualification and Testing, but i've one doubt in this part: "DDR2 SDRAM Clock: Manually set to 800MHz". In my case i can set 1066Mhz or i must leave at 800Mhz? As i said my mother board is not working well with these dominator memories recently. Using generic memories the computer stay normal.

Hello again! Ram Guy the links were very useful thanks! Now i have a mystery to solute and i am not knowing how to do. So, more one time i’ll have to disturb you.:D:

The problem: the dominator modules are not working in 1066Mhz, but when i change for 800Mhz it’s returns to normal. How to discover if the problem is occurring with the motherboard or with the Dominators. :confused:

What CPU do you have installed and did you load setup defaults and then set the tested settings and Voltage and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and did they both pass?

Please list the complete spec of your system and the BIOS settings you havd set for both CPU and memory.


Hi! The computer is using the intel E8400, I leave the memory frenquency at 800Mhz, however, above this value the mem test, like you can see in the images attach, show an error and hang as the system. Other thing I changed was the DRAM Timing Selectable: AUTO to MANUAL. Changing or not this option the computer and mem test hang in these screens (attached). Solution provisional: leave at 800Mhz. I test one at a time as you said.


Obs.: using the memory frequency in auto mode the system hang too. But, using at 800mhz the mem test approve the memories.


Where is the problem? Mem or Mainboard?

try these settings in jumperfree menu:


AI Overclocking = Manual

CPU Ratio Control = Manual

- Ratio CMOS Setting = 9

FSB Strap to Northbridge = 333

FSB Frequency = 333

PCI-E Frequency = 100

DRAM Frequency = 1066

DRAM Command Rate = 2T


DRAM Timing Control = Manual


CAS# Latency = 5

RAS# to CAS# Delay = 5

RAS# Precharge = 5

RAS# Activate to Precharge = 15

TWR = Auto

TRFC = Auto

TWTR = Auto

TRRD = Auto

TRTP = Auto

DRAM Static Read Control = Disabled


Transaction Booster = Auto

Clock Over-Charging Mode = Auto


CPU Spread Spectrum = Disabled

PCIE Spread Spectrum = Disabled

DRAM Voltage: 2.1 Volts


also use the correct memtest , this one is saying your using a pentium 3 :naughty:

Thanks for the help friend. But the problem persist! See the attach image. :[pouts:


I did exatly as your config jumpfree, however, the only thing with changed was the error in the mem test v3.4.


I don't know why this crazy program is detecting the processor as Pentium3 :confused:


Guys i forgot to say: these modules didn't come with the cooler this is normal? The vendor sold without it. But i never made overclock. I just leave config in 1066Mhz and the others options in AUTO mode. The strange thing is that since february the computer was working well. So last sunday (14/09) the computer hang after turn on.


The question is: do you think the problem is in memory or on the motherboard?

again, use the correct memtest v2.1

not the one you have now!


in the bios load up setup defaults, save them and then enter the settings i gave you earlier.

Also disable USB legacy in the bios, prior to run memtest.(this can cause errors too!)


then test each module at the time (if one gives you errors, try that module in the second slot, to rule out a faulty dimm slot)
