    Frequency

    Much appreciated James...no wasn't talking about Chinese ram - more Korean / Japanese

    You're right i'm running Windows 7 64bit, so 8gb seems the best first target.
    The only sticks I've seen anywhere running reasonably better timings are Patriot CL5 - so maybe the right target..wonder if anyone has the spd profile for these.

    You also mentioned frequency would be worth looking at - but is this an option in my case? Would changing the top 400mhz frequency of the DDR2 SODIMMs to 533 lead to the motherboard accepting this and maybe even overclocking the cpu that way??? Tried to look at cpu overclocking a while back through setFSB only to find that the bios on my motherboard wouldn't support it.

    i thought i should upload my XMP profiles "Thaiphoon Burner only"
    1600 is from an Corsair Vengeance LP CML8GX3M2A
    and 1866 from CMZ8GX3M2A

    can anyone upload the 2133 and 2400 Corsair Vengeance profiles?

    SPDTool fixed my memory!

    I realize this is very old, but what a find for me.

    I recently bought 2 2gig 800MHz ddr2 sticks from Nemix. They would not run at 800, only 667. After considerable research I found this tool and used it to copy the file from the eprom on one stick to the other eprom (the timings were not identical).

    Bingo! The memory now runs at 800.

    And it passed the Win7 memory test, FWIW.:D

    Patriot 2x8gb

    Hi, i bought a 16gb (2X8GB) patriot viper 3 kit (PV316G160C0K). This mem are 1600mhz cas 10 1.5v.

    I was trying to oc this beyond 1866mhz but is impossible, it dont have an XMP profile over 1600mhz. Someone can post for me one XMP profile from a Patriot Viper 3 1866/2133mhz 8gb to flash in my mem and see if it work fine?

    Thx!

    (sorry, my english sucks)

    I know this isn't supported, but I actually need this for an older PC.

    Can anyone reupload? Link is broken.

    Thanks W1zzard for the useful SPDTool software.

    Please note that I have found the following problems with the SPDTool 0.63 software:
    • When editing DDR SDRAM SPD data, CAS Latency selection of 2 actually applies CAS Latency setting of 2.5.
    • When editing DDR SDRAM SPD data, CAS Latency selection of 4 actually applies CAS Latency setting of 3 and shows CAS Latency setting of 4 in Timing Summary.
    • When editing DDR2 SDRAM SPD data, CAS Latency selection of "3, 5, 6" actually applies CAS Latency settings of 3, 5, and 6, but Timming Summary shows 4,5,6.
    • Selection of 2.5 for CAS Latency of DDR SDRAM is not available.
    • No way to remove or undefine a frequency/timings combination.
    It also seems like there could be other issues with the CAS Latency selection option, especially for DDR SDRAM.


    For future versions of the software, I request the following features/changes:
    1. Indicate what file or module is open
    2. Compare to a file
    3. Ability to import from Clipboard
    4. Ability to manually modify Hex editor data
