Rab Posted November 14, 2006 Share Posted November 14, 2006 I'm wondering if anyone has an answer to my system instability problem. asus p5w dh deluxe geil 2x1gb 800mhz ddr2 4-4-4-12 core 2 duo 6300 OK, i've checked the manual, and it doesn't give a lot of information. However, previously the ram posted as pc2-5300. i went into BIOS and changed the details to 4-4-4-12 2.1V with a write recovery time of 4 which was default and there was no indication of what to set it to. these settings saw it post at pc2-6400 which is correct, however i got a bsod on driver loading. as there was no indication of what the write recovery time should be, i went to a few forums and checked people's settings, they generally seemed to be set to 3 instead of 4, so i made this change. i've now got into windows, and i'll run memtest again for the rest of the day. i dont know if this has solved the problem because it's intermittent, i'll just stress test a bit and see how it goes. OK, the efforts described in my previous message were unsuccessful, the machine rebooted during memtest. I've got hold of a copy of CPU-Z and it tells me some unexpected results as follows: MEMORY> DDR2 Dual 2048MB Frequency: 400.6mhz ?? should be 800? FSB:DRAM : 2:3 cas 4.0 ras to cas delay 4 ras precharge 4 cycle time 12 bank cycle time 20 ?? what's this? SPD> both the same DDR2 1024MB Correction: None Max Bandwidth: PC2-5300 (333mhz) ?? should be 6400? manufacturer: GeIL Part Number: CL5-5-5DDR2 ?? should be 4-4-4 ? epp: no manuf date: week 39 '06 timing table: (the last value is labelled as trc, dunno what that is) @200 mhz 3-3-3-9-12 @266 mhz 4-4-4-12-16 @333 mhz 5-5-5-15-20 what should i do?
