Infam0us Posted October 16, 2010 Share Posted October 16, 2010 Hey Corsair Forums, I am currently having an issue with 3x1GB sticks of Corsair XMS2. Currently my PC is only using 2 of the 3GB's of RAM installed on the PC. On My Computer it says "Installed Memory 3.00GB (2.00 GB Usable)." I've tested all the sticks individually and they all work perfectly. I believe the problem is that 1 of the sticks is slightly newer than the other two, despite them all being XMS2. The timings indicated on the two older sticks show 4-4-4-12, 800Mhz, 2.10V Whilst the newer stick shows 5-5-5-18, 800Mhz, 1.90V I have no issue when the two identical sticks are on my PC, however the PC fails to boot when the third newer stick is installed. The only way thereafter to get the PC to respond is a full CMOS reset. I suspect because the timings, and voltages on the sticks are different that this is the issue. But I have no idea what to change them to to get them both to work. The two versions are 2.1 and 8.1 if I remember correctly, can anyone help me please? :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
