Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe and VS2GBKIT400C3


Recommended Posts

I know this MB is a bit dated for some here, just trying to squeeze that last bit of life out of it before moving on to something newer.


I'm looking for recommendations to those with more experience. I use this box for 3d development; 3D characters, animations and rendering. Not necessarily looking for max speeds just the best or 100% stability. I'd rather my renders and other work be stable during development vs. risking crashes to gain a slightly higher speed.


Recent upgrades include installing a new WD SATA drive (for Win 7), upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit and maxing out to 4 GB of RAM, both sets are VS2GBKIT400C3.


ASUS Bios (1805) is default auto setting to 2.5-3-3-7 and I have been experiencing some instability with both Windows XP Pro (32 bit) and Windows 7 (64 bit), where previously I was at at 2 GB RAM and XP Pro was 100% stable.


Running Memtest86 now to look for where it may be occurring.


Also installed CPU-Z, following are the details:

DRAM Freq: 163.3 MHz


CAS# Latency (CL) 2.5

RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCD) 3

RAS# Precharge (tRP) 3

Cycle Time (tRAS) 7

Bank Cycle Time (tRC) 10

Command Rate (CR) 2T

DRAM Idle Timer 16


Looks to me like CL should be bumped up to 3 and tRAS to 8. Suggestions?


Cheers and thanks in advance!
