Hi, My board isn't recognizing the memory... here is what pc wizard says about my dimms...

I bought 1 gig of matched 3200xl corsair memory

Why is it only 64-bit and what's up with the ecc?!

 

Error Detection Method : 64-bit ECC

Error Correction Capability : Unspecified

Current/Supported Interleave : 1-way/1-way

 

Chipset Information :

Type : DDR-SDRAM PC2500

Frequency : 158 MHz

FSB/DRAM Multiplier : CPU/14x

Channels : Single

ECC Diagnostic : No

CAS Latency (tCL) : 2 clocks

RAS to CAS (tRCD) : 2 clocks

RAS Precharge (tRP) : 2 clocks

Cycle Time (tRAS) : 5 clocks

Bank Cycle Time (tRC) : 7 clocks

DRAM Idle Timer : 256 clocks

:confused:

I just removed the module from dimm 3 and interestingly my system now works with the single 512mb at 2-2-2-5 at 200mhz. Does this mean that my other module is bad? If anyone has 2 modules of 3200 xl running at 2-2-2-5 will you pleae mention which dimm slots they are in? Mine where in channel A (green).

Also the manual says that double side modules will only run at ddr400 in non dual channel mode. Are the corsair modules double or single side? :eek:

DIMMS 1+2 OR 3+4 are how you should be placing your memory for Dual Channel......throw the manual out the window.

its the only program i know of that tells u the ddr timings from windows so it's not too bad. :sigh!:

 

Use CPU-Z that I linked to in my previous comment......it is very easy to use and gives the valuable info you would want to know......trust me.

 

Here is a 3DMark score so you can see what your board/memory is capable of doing with a bit 'o tweaking......CLICK ME for 3DMark01 score :eek:
