[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 715

post #7141 of 12343
Thanks! I'll have to see if I cant find multimeter somewhere to test...

So far have not found Modular Antec for sale in the country, maybe I looked badly.. in any case found this:
Corsair HX750W

What do you think? 7 yr warranty, guaranteed 750 watts... should be enough, no?


and I just also checked their calculator out of curiousity... wow my system takes more or less 720watt with 20% aging by their calculation... somehow I find that hard to believe.
878watt for 50% aging... sounds like I really need corsair 1000watt? as I understand they are the only ones to give true 1000w and not less than stated, is that correct?

EDIT: Why does the Asus calculator only tell me 600watt then? sounds fishy, not surprising as Antec wants to sell PSUs

it doesnt show capacity aging

every online calculator finds watts different ive checked across 5 so far
and its a range of 600-700 watts needed

with 25% added if you run it long term to compensate for aging

if you are planing on upgrading adding more video cards or hdds etc id go for the 1000+ watts so you dont have to buy a new one for the next 5+ years

enermax and corsair are the only ones i know of that lable their psu watt rating based on non peak power ratings (80% load capacity) f

which is good

but befor you invest in the 200+ for that id check the old one first

disconnect everything except ram cpu and lower the g-card down to an older one that uses less power and run the memtest on the ram singles first to elimiante faluty singles.

then see if the pair combination's are faulty

if they are not faulty from lower power consuption test then its the psu.

ps i'll look at the above psu in more detail after my errands

Ok will do that.
Meanwhile one of the modules runs a third testing cycle, so far 29 errors and only one address is showing with count 1. if its PSU issue, wouldnt errors be more random and not recurring at specific addresses?

as far as i know its both a yes and a no for an answer, specific address can be the only one on the dimm that's not receiving enough power to operate (transfer read/copy information ) and memtest performed will also indicate they are faulty.

doesnt really help sorry does the other three sets pass?
or are they all showing faults when tested individually?

Well, it doesnt seem to be PSU centric issue, as the DIMMs which failed still fail with minimal power consumers connected to system.
Added to that, I still have very hard time starting up memtest.. in 9/10 attempts or so it hangs up.

I have 2 dIMMs which passed testing on load indvidually, and now I tested them as a pair in minimal power mode - they passed 1 and half.
I now replaced back to high power mode, and still trying to get into memtest atm... but I got a feeling once I do, they will pass test..
I will update as soon as I get to that... its very hard somtimes I have to reboot multiple times, sometimes swap dimms in order for memtest to start testing and not hang

Test ram w/your older CPU just for power supply purposes and for BIOS and system stability.

what version of memtest are you using.

you said you had issued trying to do any thing out side of windows with a usb hardware. The USB stick maybe is your memtest hanging issue and possibly you need to run memtest from a floppy A or a CD/DVD rom if you have a burner.

I prefer to avoid removing the heatsink again.. as then I'll have to redo the thermic paste manually, and loose the high quality one Corsair put on.

I will do that as last resort only. First I will try to find a friend with DDR2 comp, where we can test my ram... maybe tomorrow will see.

Maybe I get lucky and the test eventually starts.. and passes without errors, I dont know

sorry missed that part hehe.
version 4.10
You know, that didnt occur to me! mostly I ruled it out because the boot cd does boot, and some other apps I used work without a problem... only the memtest gets stuck on hiren's boot cd! however good idea, I should really waste a cd and burn hiren's disk on it...

Thanks to Corsair we have the following Links to make it very easy for us to download the latest Memtest86+ V4.10

Where to get Memtest and how to download it?

This is for Floppy A:

Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

This is for CD/DVD Rom:

Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)


And as a last resort USB installer:

Download - Auto-installer for USB Key (Win 9x/2k/xp/7) *NEW!*


All the above DL-links were taken from here!

I would try the floppy or CD/DVD then USB as a last resort because it just might be possible it's the USB stick causing the issues w/the bios, CPU & running memtest.

Good Luck,

N2G
