  1. Hi all, I'm trying to get my system stable but can't seem to get things right. I suspected one bad stick of ram because one passed memtest and the other instantly throws errors with same setup. When I run both sticks, I get one or two errors after a few hours. Prime95 fails instantly and SuperPi errors at 1M. 3dmark03 and 05 crap out after a few minutes too. The guys at mushkin don't seem to want to rma it so I may be screwed. Here is my setup with vdimm ~2.7-2.8. See sig for hardware.


    Tcl: 2.0

    Trcd: 2

    Tras: 5-6

    Trp: 2

    Trc: 7

    Trfc: 14

    Trrd: 2

    Twr: 3

    Twtr: 2

    Trwt: 3

    Tref: 3120

    Twcl AUTO

    Bank Inter ENABLED

    Dynamic skew control AUTO

    Skew Value 0

    DRAM Drive Strength 07

    DRAM Data Drive Strength 01

    Max Async 7ns

    DRAM Response Time Normal

    Read Preamble 5ns

    Idle Cycle 256

    Dynamic Counter DISABLED

    R/W Que Bypass 16X

    Bypass Max 7X

    32 bit Gran DISABLED(4 bursts)

  2. fyi: I have an ultra x-connect 500W and bought the 24 pin wire (not adapter) for it. However, on my Ultra-D board, the P4 connector is so close to the 24 connector that the odd shape of the power chords for the x-connect wont allow them to both fit next to each other. If I plug the 24 pin in, I can't fit the P4 plug without bending the capacitor on the other side of it. I had to slightly modify the P4 pin to squeeze in between. I'll post pics soon.

  3. Angry- my signature updated now, sorry about that.


    I'm yet to find specs for DDR400 (PC3200) but 2.5-3-3-8 failed :)


    Also, there's a single yellow light thats on the right side of the bototm yellow (slot 3) that's on. There's another one on the bottom left near the diagnosis LEDS's but that's normal right?

  4. Hi all, I'm running the following setup:


    DFI LANParty UT nF4 Ultra-D with BIOS 3/10

    AMD 64 3500+ (water cooled)

    Mushkin VII DDR400 (PC 3200) (2 x 512) "TCCD"

    MSI nVidia 6600GT 128mb (water cooled)

    ULTRA X-Connect 500W (24 pin, NO ADAPTOR)


    Formatted a new EIDE HD and set everything up, everything seemed well until I installed and ran hl2 for the first time. After about 5-10 min the computer rebooted. The temps on the cpu and gpu were fine, so I figured it was RAM. I flashed the BIOS to the 3/10 release and ran mem test with the following results:


    Both sticks = 20+ errors

    1st stick = good

    2nd stick = 6 errors

    2nd stick again = good <--- (not sure why it worked the 2nd time)

    Both sticks = 20+ errors


    I've left everything stock and increased the voltage each time from 2.6v to 2.7v and finally stopped at 2.8v. Only thing I can think of is RAM, but has anybody else tried a similar set up with the same results? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
