RAM GUY: 1 bad stick of TWINX CMS512-3200XLPT

Recommended Posts

Ram Guy,


I need an RMA for 1 bad stick of of a TWINX CMS512-3200XLPT (1 gig total) that I bought two weeks ago. I have an ASUS A8V deluxe rev 2.0, and when only running one stick it will boot up with one, but not even post with the other. When I run both at a time, the system recognizes 1 gig and it will boot up but crash within a few minutes. -Thanks, Marc Vandeveer

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-3200XL

Frequency Voltage Control

AI over clocking: Manual

CPU Freq: 200

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.75 Volts

System performance: Standard

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI 9200 or 9600 then 1.6 Volts suggested!*


Memclock Mode: 400MHz

Bank Interleaving: 4/Auto/Enabled

Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 2T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T

All other settings should be set to default settings!

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
