Abit AV8 ok with Corsair XMS rev 1.1 ?


Recommended Posts

Hi, Was looking at maybe getting this mainboard, would it be fine with my rev1.1 XMS ram ?

I have one stick of PC3500 and one of PC3200LL which I believe are the same with different SPD only, they have been running perfect in my P4 rig in dual channel @ 220fsb cas2,3,3,7 2.8v.

Are there any known issues with these and the AV8 ?

What would be the reccomended Corsair timings in that combination ?

It may work and it may not since the SPD's different! I would try and set the timings manually to the settings listed bellow and set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts!

CAS Latency CL=2.0

Row Cycle Time tRC 11 Spec 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 11

Row Precharge Time tRP 2

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!
