Problems with TWINX1024-3200XL and ASUS A8N-E

    Hi guys,

    Purchased TwinX1024-3200XL v1.2 (0527004-1) today and I was all ready for some high overclocking when I was disappointed to say the least by my brand new RAM.

    System crashed (BSOD) and would not go over 240HT. At 245HT, timings were set at 2.5-3-3-7, voltage at 2.75V initially but relaxed to 3-4-4-8 @ 2.85V and memory still failed Memtest86 test #5 (wont even pass 1 run. always return TONS of errors at around 98% done 1st run). Tested each stick on its own and both return errors. Running with a divider helped but 3200XL with a divider?!

    Desperately in need of help!

    is the memory desinged to run at other speedsd than 200fsb?
    and your cpu is it capable of this speeds?

    Memory is TCCD on PB, which should hit 260-280 no problems (from all reviews at least) CPU is Venice 3200+ tested at 270X10 @1.4V no problems..

    Well it looks like you answered your own question the RAM and CPU should be up to the task but what about the mobo? I don't really know a lot about ASUS's nF4 solutions but the A8N-SLI Premium is supposed to OC a lot better than their previous nF4 boards.

    There's not really much point in over-volting TCCD, at 2.5V and 2.5-4-4-8 you should be able to hit 275MHz (this is what Corsair's CMX512-4400C25, which is also TCCD, is rated for).
