Comments about Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) 204-pin SODIMM DDR3 PC3-12800:
Very pleased with this RAM. It is running at the low voltage on my machine which means it is saving power over the 1.5v RAM. Speed is good however my CPU can only handle PC3-10600 so it is currently running at that speed. It is also working in dual channel mode which is great.
The latency also appears to be 9 clocks and not the 11 stated which may be because I am running it slower but either way it is good news.
My only question is why low voltage RAM isn't the default RAM recommended by crucial when you enter your machine information.
I installed Crucial memory modules earlier this year while I was running Windows XP. I just reformatted the hard drive and installed the Vista operating system that came with my PC. The add on modules are no longer recognized; only the factory installed memory is visable on a scan. Does this mean that the memory was compatible with XP but not Vista?
I recently purchased 2GB kit (1GBx2) DDR PC2700 Unbuffered NON-ECC 2.5V 128Meg x for an old Gateway E 4100 computer at work. I shut it off, grounded myself and replaced the manufacturer sticks, using the same seats, and couldn't get a video signal when I turned it on. I tried reseating, using the other seats, using just one stick in multiple different seats with each stick and still got nothing. I also tried to use the original memoy that I was replacing and still don't get a video signal. The keyboard powers, the motherboard beeps like it's turning on and I plugged the monitor in to another computer to make sure it wasn't an issue with that. Is there anything I might be able to do to figure out what might be the problem? Thanks!
This is the second time that a memory stops working. (in 2 Weeks). New PC i'm doing.
The first time i RMA the memory, they give me another. All ok. But again, another memory, not the new one, stops working. I changed the slots and tested all combinations and have another one to RMA.
Board: Msi H97M-G43
Memory: 3x Ballistix VLP 1600 CL9 (BLS4G3D1609ES2LX0CEU)
Is this motherboard compatible with the memory ? Its possible that the motherboard is "burning" the memorys? I marqued the Slot (one blue) that the memory stops function and now i have the two black slots with the two memorys running, all ok until now. (2 days only testing).
Never changed the option "OC" at the motherboard memory option. Its all Stock
Thanks in advance.
Among the QVL are chips from Samsung, Micron and Apacer. Will Crucial memory
I just found CPU_Z and looked at my memory in one of my old systems.
The system used SDRAM and can accept 66, 100, or 133 Mhz memory
The three chips show up as:
1 100 133
1) Why are multiple speeds shown within the chip?
2) I ASSUME that the chip will run at its highest rated speed?
3) I ASSUME that if the chip is rated higher (142) that it will adjust downward to the re bus speed?
4) My CPU is a 1100 MHz AMD Athlon. The bus runs at 100 Mhz with an 11 Multiplier.
The Front side bus is adjusted automatically (says default is 200) but assue it is also running at 100MHz.
When I set the SDRAM to run at 133 instead of 100, my system becomes unstable.
Why since the SDRAM is rated at 133 MHz?
