Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe WIFI + TWIN2X2048-6400C4(PRO)

Hi there,

 

i upgraded from a GPU ASUS 7900GTX to a Palit 260 Sonic 216 55nm today.

Also i bought an additional RAM Kit called TWIN2X2048-6400C4 without "PRO"

because i didn't find a new one to buy. The 3 years old DDR2 RAM is the one with LED Line on it.

 

I changed Voltage of RAM in my Bios 2101 to 2,1 Volt and changed as i read at the forum to 633 MHz.

 

Timings are 4/4/4/12/23/2T

 

I tryed the DIMMs in 2 Installations

 

First:

DIMM_A1 / DIMM_B1 (yellow) TWIN2X2048-6400C4

DIMM_A2 / DIMM_B2 (black) TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO

 

Now:

DIMM_A1 / DIMM_A2 (black/black) TWIN2X2048-6400C4

DIMM_B2 / DIMM_B2 (yellow/yellow) TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO

 

The space between the heat sink XMS2PRO and my Scythe Infinity

SCINF-1000 makes a bit problem for changing all the time :D:

 

CPU-Z shows following:

 

Slot 1 EPP #1 400MHz / 4.0 / 4 / 4 / 12 / 22 /2T / 2,100 V

Slot 2 EPP #1 400MHz / 4.0 / 4 / 4 / 12 / 22 /2T / 2,000 V

Slot 3 EPP #1 400MHz / 4.0 / 4 / 4 / 12 / 22 /2T / 2,100 V

Slot 4 EPP #1 400MHz / 4.0 / 4 / 4 / 12 / 22 /2T / 2,000 V

 

Values at the "Memory" section is shown as:

345,7 MHz / CPU/7 4.0 / 4 / 4 / 12 / 23 / 2T

 

@ Athlon X2 4200+ (89W) 2420 MHz

 

Now i try to install the ForceWare 182.50 and crash in a bluescreen called

Memory_Management Error.

 

The PSU is a Seasonic SS12-500 PFC and the total power consumption

(GPU is not runing yet) is around 200 Watt (Peak 218 W) for the System,

so i dont believe thats my problem actual.

 

Details of my system are shown in my Spec. What's wrong?

Sorry my bad, but Memory_Management Error smelt like RAM :D:

 

Solution

Asus driver fragments prevented a proper installation of GeForce 182.50 so i had fun with a lot of bluescreens :eyebuldge

PSU was maybe a part of the problem so i changed it to a 600W ATX 2.2 and i'm now prepared for my Phenom II 940.

 

System seems stable now with:

 

DIMM_A1 / DIMM_A2 (black/black) TWIN2X2048-6400C4

DIMM_B2 / DIMM_B2 (yellow/yellow) TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO

 

RAM 2.1 Volt , DDR2 667 MHz, Timings 4.0/4/4/12/2T

 

OC Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor @ 2530 MHz ~100°F idle

RAM......361 MHz

HT........920 MHz

Divisor...11

HT........4

Chipset..230 MHz

 

I learned, do NOT install memory and GPU in sync :D:

 

Attachment shows the values, i'm confused concerning different Voltage - any advice?

 

Cheers

upgrade to a 5000 black and watercool it.

im 14x200 and sometimes 14x220 when i want to kick it up a bit. the PRO ram holds up nice.

i gott run but i can post some good settings in a bit for when i had the 4200+ in her.

the ram is underclocked in pic #3. was that an error?

 

No it's true, but i won't go to the limit until i know about the voltage difference. I think there's space for 2794 MHz with aircool and

RAM 399 MHz / HT 1016 MHz? :evildevil but anyway i like ur watercool. Looks like my Silverstone case...

the limit is not 400, thats supposed to be the starting point! :)

i found a higher Mx gave me better benchmarks all around thats why i got the 5000BE but when i had the 4200+ in there i hit 11x250 2.2v 5,5,5,15,22 on air easy but i only used the black slots in DC. the yellow slots i found were...well lets say less than reliable at higher clocks, they topped out at 216fsb by themselves.

i will say however knocking down the HT to 4 it was virtually crashproof but didnt bench as well.

 

see, i dont know if all 4 slots filled with different pairs would really overclock that great but im certain they should do 400fsb and the stock HT is 5. i think you have yours on 3 if i did the math, you are robbing yourself.

i found that AI booster was a great tool to slowly bring up my clocks from stock and when it crashed i backed off in the bios 1 notch and upped it more a bit at a time till i could go no further prime stable. backed off 2fsb and there it sat happy.

 

obviously i cant tell you to set the ram to 2.1-2.2v but thats what i would do personally and make sure they get good airflow.

Edit:

 

RAM 2.1 Volt , DDR2 667 MHz, Timings 4.0/4/4/12/2T

 

OC Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor @ 2640 MHz ~100°F idle

RAM......377 MHz

HT........960 MHz

Divisor...11

HT........4

Chipset..240 MHz

 

No more freeze ingame atm:biggrin:

 

No info about 2.0/2.1 Volt? I will try Chipset to 250 MHz, the HT Link will be

1000 MHz and CPU@2750 MHz and the RAM 393 MHz.
