  • ASUS M4a89gtd + F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

    My settings are:
    Voltage to 1.5
    9-9-9-24 2T
    Unganged Mode

    System: AMD Phenom X2 965
    F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL (2x2GB) ***

    I have not touched any CPU voltage or clocks or anything, just ram because basically I just dont feel OC, I dont have much experience. But if I need to do it, I would as long as I have proper instructions.

    I got these errors under Windows 7 64bit Home:

    The memories are ok because I tested them each one of them and they work. As I was reading other posts around here, I tried using them on single channels, and I could work with no problem. Currently I'm using ports B1 and B2.

    I contacted Asus and they told me they tried this model with the settings I described (but in the VQL it says they run the ram at 1.6V The asustech guy told me to run it at 1.5V).

    Bottomline, I have two questions:

    1) I have another pair of F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL, and I wish to know if I can use them (currently I cant because if I use double channel, it freezes, reboots, looses configuration).

    2) What should be the correct settings, timings to make it run double channel.

    If its too complicated well, I'll sell the second pair of RAM's and use them on single channels.

    Shouldn't be complicated!

    Follow these instructions:

    Let me know if that works, or if you have problems.

    Thank you

      Will try that tonight, I'll let you know if it works, or if I have any questions.

        Ok, tried what you told me, 8-8-8-24 2T and 1.5V failed for some reason.

        So I configured this way:

        I'm not sure of: CPU Voltage, CPU/NB Voltage. Could you check those?

        Failed @ Prime95 :/

          May want to raise CPU/NB to around the 1.15 to 1.18 area

          Pls offer comments on support I provide, HERE, in order to help me do a better job here:

            Thanks for the assist.

            Im using the 4 slots of Ram with these settings:
            CPU Ratio: 15
            CPU Bus: 240
            DRAM: 1600MHZ 9-9-9-24
            My Processor is clocked now at 3.6Ghz.

            I followed your advice and now voltages are:

            CPU: 1.38V
            CPU/NB: 1.6
            CPU VDDA: is Auto @ 2.49

            DRAM: 1.6V (Im using 4 slots so I guess I should increase the voltage right?)

            The other settings are the same as before, My doubts are how do you know within which range of Voltage you should work with these settings.
            Prime gave me BSOD. What should I raise (or lower)

              CPU-NB is much too high... this should be 1.15V.

              DRAM Voltage is fine, you can probably even go lower.

              Voltages can be tricky, the best way is to slowly work up from current value.

              For example, CPU-NB Voltage is 1.10V default, you know the memory controller can be slightly over volted with 4 modules, so you raise it up to 1.15V to see if that is stable.. and so on..

              Thank you

                As suggested, I set CPU-NB set to 1.15V
                DRAM I set it to 1.55V

                The other settings I left them the same, so far so good. I was running Prime95 when I noticed CPU temps @70C, so I stopped the test. Where I live average temperatures are 32C, (pretty Hot) but still 70C is waaay too high, so I bought today some thermal paste.

                At least it didn't BSOD after 15 minutes, so that's good Past configurations failed at 15 seconds.

                Will run prime tests when the temperature is not so high and will get back at you.
