noob with a MSI NEO2 Plat & XMS3200C2PT


Recommended Posts

Hey there.

The last time I put a PC together EDO RAM was new so I'm something of a noob with all the new stuff.

I'm in the process of buying all the bits and I'm looking at getting a MSI NEO2 Platinum Nforce3 board (for an AMD 3800 socket 939) together with 1gb XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x512).

I chose the memory mainly because the reviews I could find were quite favourable (and partly because they were on offer) but to be honest I find the choice quite bewildering, Just how many different ways are there to buy 1GB??


First of all is that a sensible pairing of memory and motherboard?

Secondly, what timings are recommended for that? Oh and err.. where do I set the timings? (although that might be obvious when I actually come to build the kit)


Thanks for any help.

That should run great with this MB, and all of the settings will be in the bios setup! And should be set to the following for AMD MB's!

CAS Latency CL=2.5

Row Cycle Time tRC Bios Default

Row Refresh Cyc Time tRFC Bios Default

Ras# to CAS# delay tRCD 3

Row to Row delay Bios Default

Min Ras# Active Time tRAS 6

Row Precharge Time tRP 3

Write Recovery Time Bios Default

Write to Read delay Bios Default

Read to Write Delay Bios Default

Refresh Period tREF Bios Default

Enable 2T Timing Disabled

Then test the system with http://www.memtest.org and make sure it's stable! If you have problems, I would set Enable 2T Timings to AUTO and test it again!
