4gb of RAM problem

Recommended Posts

ok im a noob so sorry if i dont kno how to describe things properly im here to learn..

 

ok so i have 4 sticks of OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 gold GX XTC

i put them in my computer and left the bios settings to auto but wen i run memtest i get 22000 errors

 

the people at twisted forums helped alot but they sent me here

 

heres a link to the post there so you can see what they have told me and what i have tryed http://twistedforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12283

 

please help me i have been dealing with this for quite a while

 

sorry if the old sig was hard to read

Hey first you need to compile a list of hardware and put it in your sugnature. It's in the forum rules. Then we will be able to help you out much better. Welcome to The Street!!

Clear your cmos..

 

Load bios defaults..

 

Run memtest now.. see what happens.

 

Are you overclocking ? If so set everything to default and work your way up again.. its a whole different story when your running 4gigs as its more stress on the cpu's memory controller.

Like they advised you across there you have got a motherboard that is maybe a little advanced for your skills......so you need to start from scratch if your gonna get the most out of it.....

 

You need to follow the Build Guide.......You also have to look at the Overclocking Guide.....read it a few times.....then when your cool with all that...............then......

 

I would Do like Thunda says..........

CAS will almost certainly have to be 3. I'd also set Trcd and Trp to 4.

Yes i wondered about that, the OCz site says 2,3,3,8 seemed hell of a tight for 1gb sticks, no matter edited it...

No kidding? Huh...wonder how they clock at 3-4-4-8 then.

OK, some duff advice given in that thread you posted... Settings on auto will not work well of a DFI board, full-stop. There is almost no chance of getting 4 sticks to run with auto settings - that just isn't going to happen.

 

I think you might be getting ahead of yourself a little here, so lets just start from the beginning and get you up and running...

 

First, you need to CMOS clear as stated above. Jumpers are on your mobo - just follow the directions are you should be good to go.

 

Next, you should boot with just one stick, furthest orange slot from CPU. A single stick will NOT work in any other slot. Are there any errors showing? Repeat for each of the sticks. All should run fine. Then get the matched pairs and put them both into the orange slots. Run the MemTest again. Any errors showing? Repeat with the other matched pair.

 

Your sticks are the OCZ4002048ELGEGXT-K sticks, correct? If so, your default settings should look similar to the following. NOTE: These are the settings for 1 or 2 sticks in the orange slots.

FSB Bus Frequency.............................  -  200
LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio.......................  -  Auto
CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio.......................  -  Auto
PCI eXpress Frequency.........................  -  100Mhz

CPU VID StartUp Value.........................  -  StartUp

CPU VID Control...............................  -  Auto
CPU VID Special Control.......................  -  Auto
LDT Voltage Control...........................  -  1.20V
Chip Set Voltage Control......................  -  1.50v
DRAM Voltage Control..........................  -  2.70v

DRAM Configuration Settings:

DRAM Frequency Set............................  -  200=RAM/FSB:01/01
Command Per Clock (CPC).......................  -  Enable
CAS Latency Control (Tcl).....................  -  2.0
RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd).....................  -  03
Min RAS# active time (Tras)...................  -  08
Row precharge time (Trp)......................  -  03
Row Cycle time (Trc)..........................  -  11 Bus Clocks
Row refresh cyc time (Trfc)...................  -  16
Row to Row delay (Trrd).......................  -  03 Bus Clocks
Write recovery time (Twr).....................  -  03 Bus Clocks
Write to Read delay (Twtr)....................  -  02 Bus Clocks
Read to Write delay (Trwt)....................  -  03 Bus Clocks
Refresh Period (Tref).........................  -  3120
DRAM Bank Interleave..........................  -  Enabled

DQS Skew Control..............................  -  Auto
DQS Skew Value................................  -  0
DRAM Drive Strength...........................  -  8
DRAM Data Drive Strength......................  -  2
Max Async Latency.............................  -  Auto
DRAM Response Time............................  -  Normal
Read Preamble Time............................  -  Auto
IdleCycle Limit...............................  -  256 Cycles
Dynamic Counter...............................  -  Disable
R/W Queue Bypass..............................  -  16 x
Bypass Max....................................  -  07x

 

Post back your results with the above settings - and we can go from there to get you up and running with all 4 sticks.
