CM3X2048-1333C9DHX cause system freeze

I have 2x CM3X2048-1333C9DHX

 

When I run dual-channel, the system will freeze random.

 

One of the modules appears to cause the errors because running single modules only one of them cause the freeze to occur.

 

There are no errors or such, it just completly freezes the computer and the only option is to rebooting. (using powerbutton since the OS is completely locked up)

Hi

 

Have you tried to isolate the suspect module ie. tried one at a time?

 

Also you may want to detail if you have overclocked your CPU and if it is firstly stable to eliminate if it is a CPU problem.

 

Also double check your timings, volts etc in bios.

 

I have isolated the issue to one module.

No I have not overclocked my CPU.

 

I'll double check timings, volts etc.

Where do I find the specification for this memory?

The settings in your bios should be:

 

Testing parameters for TWIN3X/XMS3-1333C9DHX (IN):

TWIN3X2048-1333C9DHX Data Sheet

 

Motherboard make and model: ASUS P5K3, P5E3 Premium/Deluxe !

Each pair is tested and packaged together using the following settings:

Advanced

Jumper Free

AI Overclock: Manual

CPU Control: AUTO

FSB Frequency: 333 MHz

PCIE Frequency: AUTO

DRAM Frequency: DDR3-1333 MHz

DRAM Timings Control: Manual

CAS# Latency:___________9

RAS# to CAS# Delay:______9

RAS# Precharge:__________9

RAS# Activate to Precharge:24

DRAM Static Read Control: Disabled

DRAM Dynamic Write Control: Disabled

CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled

PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

CPU Voltage:__________1.4500V

CPU PLL Voltage:_______1.6V

DRAM Voltage:_________1.5V

FSB Termination Voltage:_1.3V

North Bridge Voltage:____1.55V

All settings not listed should be left at AUTO or BIOS Default

Maximum DDR3 recommended VDIMM: 2.00 Volts

I am currently using the same modules as you are in dual channel mode @ 1338 Mhz @ stock latencies as my Dominators are getting RMA'd.

 

I think the above bios settings are a guide so I think they're a good starting point. But I dont think you should have much trouble with 1333Mhz dimms (unless they're faulty of course)

I'm using ATI at the moment actually :p: the main thing I'm not happy with is their 1080p/DX10 issue - i'll leave it at that as I don't want to go too OT.

 

But I hope you get your RAM issue sorted. The 1333DHX I found have been all good no probs at all. I quickly changed their speed to 1484 Mhz @ stock latencies and all good - Prime Blend 8Hrs and Memtest stable ;):

I'v built my own computers every 2-3 years since 98

This is the first time I have problems with anything (except ATI graphic cards god I hate them, one machine went thru 3 cards untill I forever switched to NVIDIA)

 

:eek:

 

If you still have the same problems (one passes, one fails) even at the tested settings, then lets get the pair replaced for you. Please use the On Line RMA Request Form and we will be happy to replace them. Be sure to check the box that says “I've already spoken to Technical Support and/or RAM Guy.”
