Two different versions of CM3X2048


ALT  F4

Recommended Posts

Hi there :-)

 

I'm having problems with my computer and I suppose that the source of them are the two different versions of RAM sticks.

 

At the beginning, when I bought the PC I got 2x CM3X2048-1600C9DHX XMS3-1600 2048MB 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 1.80V ver4.1 08360042 .

 

Then, a few weeks after that, I bought 2x CM3X2G1600C9DHX XMS3-1600 2048MB 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 1.80V ver3.2 08410689

 

And since that day I'm having problems ingame and on streaming or simply on windows (freezing and planting after a few secondes or minutes).

 

When I use only the two v4.1 or the two v3.2 it freezes less often.

What's the differences between the v4.1 and 3.2 versions?

 

Is it possible that I got bad voltage configuration? Not enough maybe?

 

I'm about to reinstall Windows but I'd like to know if anyone has this problem too :-(

 

Thanks for reading ^^

With 4 modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR1066 or DDR1333 and set the memory Voltage to 1.7-1.90 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.05 Volts as well and test the system with http://www.memtest.org. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

Thank you RAMGUY for the advices :-)

 

Well I tryed these changes but unfortunately it didn't fix my problems :-(

 

I tried various dispositions of the modules and I think that the A1 slot bugs because when I put the two v4.1 modules on slots A2 and B2 the freezes happen less often.

 

In the other hand, if I put the two v3.2 modules on the same slots it crashes...

 

Gettin' really despaired :(:

Download Memtest86+ V2.11 from--->

and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk. Shut the system down. Insert a single stick in the slot one (first slot closest to the CPU) Enter your BIOS. Load Setup Defaults. Save Setup Defaults. Set to these values:

Extreme Tweaker 

CPU Level Up = Auto
Memory Level Up = Auto
CPU Multiplier = 8.5
FSB - Memory Clock Mode = UnLinked
FSB (QDR) Frequency = 333 (1333)
Mem (DDR) Frequency = 667 (1333)
LDT Frequency = 5x

Memory Timing Section 

P1 = Auto
P2 = Auto
tCL = 9
tRCD = 9
tRP = 9
tRAS = 24
Command Per Clock = 2T
tRRD = Auto
tRC = Auto
tWR = Auto
tWTR = Auto
tFAW = Auto
tRD = Auto
tRTP = Auto
tRFC = 80
tREF = Auto

Over Voltage

CPU Voltage = Auto
Loadline Calibration = Disabled
CPU PLL Voltage = Auto
CPU VTT Voltage = Auto
Memory Voltage + 1.8v
NB Core Voltage = 1.32v
SB Core Voltage = 1.50v
CPU GTL_REF0 Ratio = Auto
CPU GTL_REF1 Ratio = Auto
CPU GTL_REF2 Ratio = Auto
CPU GTL_REF3 Ratio = Auto
DDR3 CHA1 Ref Voltage = Auto
DDR3 CHA2 Ref Voltage = Auto
DDR3 CHB1 Ref Voltage = Auto
DDR3 CHB2 Ref Voltage = Auto

CPU Configuration

CPU Internal Thermal Control = Auto
Limit CPUID MaxVal = Disabled
Enhanced C1 (C1E) = Disabled
Execute Disable Bit = Enabled
Virtualization Technology = Enabled
Enhanced SpeedStep Tech = Disabled
Legacy USB = Disabled

All CPU Cores = Enabled

Spread Spectrum Control = All to disabled

Shut the system down. Boot to the Memtest CD with that single stick and allow for two full paasses. Shut the system down. Remove the first stick and insert it in slot two. Repeat memtest. Shut the system down. Remove the first stick and insert it into slot three and repeat memtest. Do the same for the last slot. You have now tested one stick and all four slots. Shut the system down and remove the first stick. Insert the second stick in slot one. Retest. Shut the system down and remove the second stick and insert the third stick in slot one. Repeat Memtest. Do the same with the last stick. You have now tested all four sticks.

 

Now test for the Dual Channel Mode function of the memory controller. Insert a stick in slot one and three and memtest. Remove the set and insert the second set in slot two and four and memtest.

 

Finally, insert a stick in slot one and slot three, a stick in slot two and slot four and repeat Memtest. If Stable enter Windows and post screenshots of CPU-z's CPU, Memory and SPD tabs. Please post your report such as:

Stick 1 & 2 = v3.2
Stick 3 & 4 = v4.1

Stick 1 - Slot 1 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest 
Stick 1 - Slot 2 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest 
Stick 1 - Slot 3 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest 
Stick 1 - Slot 4 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest 

Stick 2 - Slot 1 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest
Stick 3 - Slot 1 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest
Stick 4 - Slot 1 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest

Stick 1 & 2 - Slot 1 & 3 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest
Stick 2 & 4 = Slot 2 & 4 = No boot/Pass/Fail Memtest

Results?
