  1. I had my Corsair 3200XLPRO in the orange slots for over a year when I was running a 3000+ processor. I recently bought a 4800+ and I would not run properly while in the orange slots. It would not load windows while at 12 x 200 but would load windows at 11 x 250 just fine to errors. The ram while at 12 x 200 would start erroring with seconds of memtest. I moved the memory to the Yellow slots and all the problems have been solved. ran memtest last night for 18 passes no errors at 12 x 200 with 2-3-2-5 settings at 2.75 volts. So what's the differance between the orange and yellow slots?
  2. I moved my ram to dimms 1 and 3 (Yellow) and this seemed to fix the problem. No more errors and it post at 12 x 225 just fine. The memory had been in the orange slots for about a year with no problems. Now what is suppose to be wrong with using the yellow dimm slots over the orange ones? Are they less likey to be stable?
  3. I did search before I posted and nothing really seemd to fit my problem. Besides I've been running the same board and memory for over a year and I only changed the CPU then my problem cropped up. If you can't contribute to helping me fix my stuff, then don't waste anyones time posting bullsh1t.
  4. Definately the memory, 3 passes on memtest and no errors. I had over 1700 errors in 15 minutes with the Corsair XMS pro. Time to visit Ram Guy.
  5. Ok, I went to the CPU vendor where I purchased the CPU and they tested the CPU and it checked out just fine. I changed my Corsair 3200XLPRO to just some Corsair value select memory and the system appears to boot normal. I'm going to run memtest again with the cheap memory just for verifiction this is the problem. Now as I noted in the 1st post this memory started posting at 2-3-2-5 on it's on. If I forced it to run 2-2-2-5 I would have random Doom 3 crashes. I emailed Corsiar and they told me to raise the voltage in the BIOS to 2.80 which I did but it did not help. This memory came guaranteed 2-2-2-5 and will not run at the rated settings. Now it will not run with my new processor. Looks like it's time to RMA the ram. I will report back if memtest passes or fails
  6. CPU tested good. Hmmm guess I try so differant memory out and see if this does the trick. Then I will play around with the secondary timing.
  7. You need all 4 power connectors plugged into the motherboard . The 24 pin, 4pin square, 4 pin rectangler, and a small 4 pin floppy power connector.
  8. Sorry I didn't mention this earlier but the dual core driver patch has been installed. I also have already instaled the latest DFI BIOS for this board. Time to run to the vendor. I will report thier findings later. I'm probably going to rrplace with a 4600+ from Fry if it passes, if it don't pass then I'll get another 4800+.
  9. I understand what your telling me and I'll lower the setting if I take it back home with me. I'm going to the vendor and having them test it out and if it fails to boot properly I'll get a refund. If it boots at the vendor then I will take it back home and try lowering the other settings. Here's my issues with the CPU. I beleave it should post at least with the default setting of 12x200 with no overclocking what so ever. I can't help but feel there is an issue with the CPU itself becuase it will OC to 2750mhz (10x250) with the currrent memory setting relaxed. It runs fine at 2-3-2-5 at 11x250 and not having adjusted the secondary settings. It just dosen't seem to like the factory 12 multi for some reason. probably the secondary setting like you suggested, but if it was a good CPU it shoulded matter a default. Tell me, Am I living in a dream world wanting to get what I paid for? Thanks, for the help
  10. I have relaxed the memory as much as 4,4,4,12 @ 12 x 200 and still no boot with 2.85v on the memory. So you still think it's a memory problem? Should I RMA the CPU, memory or both? I have another week before I can get my money back from the vendor and I going to the vendor to have the CPU checked out today.
  11. AMD X2 4800+ Bad CPU ??? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here's the original setup- DFI NF4 Ultra D Bios 3/10/05 A64 Winchester 3000+ Corsair PC3200LL XMS Pro 2-2-2-5 (boots as 2-3-2-5 for some reason) XP-90 heatsink WD 74gig Raptor on SATA channel 2 NEC 3550 DVD burner on IDE 1 BFG 6800 GT with NV5 Silencer NeoPower 480 watt No Case -board mounted to Plexiglass on 1" standoffs - It sits on my workbench All 4 power connectors plugged into board Here's the problem. Before I installed a new AMD X2 4800+ processor I downloaded the latest official BIOS from the DFI website BIOS 4/06/06. I flashed the Bios and booted up on the 3000+ and everything is normal. Played a few mins of Doom 3 and everything is fine. I then installed the new 4800+ processor and cleared the CMOS. I started the system and entered the Bios to check temp and it was 38deg C. I then set to Optimum and saved and rebooted the system. After reboot, it sees the 4800 just fine and acts as if it will boot normal but stops right after the PCI config table and I never see Verifying DMI. It simply reboots every time it gets to this point. It pauses for about 5 seconds after the PCI table then it reboots. Things I have done to solve the problem. Reset the cmos Reseated the memory Removed the Audigy2 sound card Relaxed the memory timing to 3-3-3-8 Reseated all power connections Reseated the CPU Unplugged the SATA connector to the hard drive - never gets to boot failure. Set all memory timings to auto in the Bios Raised vcore to 1.4 then 1.5 Memory @ 2.80V then 2.85V The CPU will boot up into windows and run just fine if I lower the CPU multi to 11 and raised the memory setting to 250 for 2750 Mhz. It will not however run at the 12 x 200 setting for 2400. Just reboots or Blue screens and reboots while loading Windows. I ran memtest last night for 7 plus hours and had 18 passes with no failures while at 10 x 200 settings. I then raised the multi to 12 with the memory at 200 for the normal 2400Mhz and ran memtest again and in 15 min I had over 1700 errors. I did not right down the exact number of failures but this is close to the number. Is this a bad memory controller on the CPU? I never had ANY issues with this setup for over a year with the 3000+ oced to 2400 and running memtest or whatever. Never 1 failure. Looks like a crappy CPU to me, what do you think? BTW, the only problems I've really had with the board over the past year is that from time to time it will not reconize my USB mouse and I had to unplug and replug it back in and it will then run fine.
  12. After raising the Mem voltage to 2.8, it seems to boot just fine, except now my operating sytem was hosed. I had to repair the startup files for windows xp x64. Repair went flawless and now installing updates from the Microsoft. Seem the problem was I forgot I had to raise the voltage for the memory to work properly. After resetting the bio this has to be raised to proper voltage of 2.75 as per email from Corsair. After evrything is running perfect I will lower the core voltage back to the auto setting to see if it runs proper. The strange part is the 3000+ ran just fine with the low voltage condition to the the memory. When I 1st setup this sytem it would not run proper until it was raised. Hell it was more than a 1 1/2 years since I bought this board and memory.
  13. Well this board has always had wierd butt problems. Sometimes the USB mouse does not work until I unplug and replug it back in the port. I tried uping the voltage to the core a little and it goes a little futher into the boot process but it hangs at the "Do you want windows to start normal screen" with 1.5vcore. I'm really not liking this at all.
  14. I flashed to 03/09/06 Bio and reinstalled the 4800+ and reset the cmos and removed the battery before booting. I still have the exact same problem. The system will not boot past the pci table. It never sees the "Verifying DMI Pool" prompt. Any Ideas? Is this a bad processor?
  15. Here's the original setup DFI NF4 Ultra D Bios 3/10/05 A64 Winchester 3000+ Corsair PC3200LL XMS Pro 2-2-2-5 (boots as 2-3-2-5 for some reason) XP-90 heatsink WD 74gig Raptor on SATA channel 2 NEC 3550 DVD burner on IDE 1 BFG 6800 GT with NV5 Silencer NeoPower 480 watt No Case -board mounted to Plexiglass on 1" standoffs - It sits on my workbench All 4 power connectors plugged into board Here's the problem.

Re flash with differant BIOS maybe? I think it flashed improper for some reason, but it works now. RMA the 4800? I don't think this is the problem though Any suggestion? Thanks in advance!
