Two diff mem sticks ( UTT CH-5 ) can work together ?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've got Twinmos SpeedPremium PC3200 based on CH-5 UTT,

if i use two same sticks its running dual channel fine,

but when i am trying it with Mushkin Redline PC4000 CH-5 UTT,

no matter what i do they dont work together( SP and Redline ), no matter if

it is in dual channel or single, orange slots or yellow, defaults timings or 2-2-2-5 3.3v.

I tried couple diff bios version, still same.

 

The situation now is that one of my Sp died and one of my Redlines' died,

got 2x512 but cant have them in slots in same time, any cure for me ?

 

Regards,

sadly i think not -- at least not at stock timings. see the memory ICs are made at different times and the tiny differences in manufacturing will mean changes in track latencies and signal path lengths so they are not balanced to work together.

 

i would sell them as individual sticks on (fre~)ebay then get a nice shiny new set

I assume you have tried 2T timings?

 

If this don't work I would try "optimized default" and set "Spread Spectrum" to "Enabled"

and "Disable" "Bank Interleav".

 

Doing this will make any o/c impossible so I'm not sure if this is of any help to you.

Easy fix.

 

Best if you have a old NF2 system to use...one where you can use a single stick of ram.

 

Get hold of a copy of the Taiphoon SPD burner program. Put the Mushkin in, copy the SPD, then put the Twinmos stick in its place, and burn the Mushkin SPD into the Twinmos stick. Do the same for the other Twinmos.

 

Now your system will think you have 4 sticks of Mushkin, and the SPD's will be the same.

 

You issues come from 2 different SPD's and timing parameter freakout by the bios, clear that up, use ONE set of timings (these are the "load default" settings you end up with, some various timings the SPD sets that the bios doesnt have manual settings for, and so trouble.

 

This solved my 2X and 2Y sticks of UTT-BH that had issues with using all 4 together.

Yepp

Taiphoon Burner does the thing.

After buring in SPD data from Mushkin to TwinMos stick they can work together.

They boot and there is no issue with dual channel. Only problem i had with

makeing it stable in Sp2004, but i disabled Bank Interlave and now its fine.

 

Thank you guys for your support,

Regards,
