Overclock Problem or not?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, how are you!

Ive got quite a delema and ive exhausted all my other resources and my final stop was here because im suspecting an overclock/mem timing problem. So where better to stop and ask but here.

My situation is this:

Ive got an AMD 2500+ barton OC'd to 3200+ with a volcano 8+ cooling and 4 fans 2intake - 2 exhaust on an asus motherboard (A7V600-X). Running 1 stick Corsair XMS 512 3200 (400), and 1 regular stick of Corsair 512 3200 (400).

Problem is i recently had a power outtage come through and after this my comp hasnt run right when before it use to. All games I play will run for a small period of time and then go to an error screen (send report). Funny thing was I couldnt get my comp to even turn on until I adjusted a setting in my bios becuase i kept getting "computer hung for an improper CPU speed Setting" error. The setting I adjusted was turning the Memory Freq. from Auto to 226mhz.

Finally being able to get it to log into windows without hanging on that error Ive noticed when I play games, 1 in particular (World of Warcraft), I get Error #132 stating the memory could not be read. Although playing Call of Duty and Battlefield 2 I can play for 10-20 minutes and then get kicked to desktop, with Call of Duty giving me a similar error about memory.

I wrote down the settings that are currently running in the bios that are atmost letting get into windows.

Here are the specs:

AMD 2500+ running at 3200+:
CPU Multiplier: 11.0X
CPU External Freq. - 200/33
Memory Freq - 226
CPU Vcore - 1.650V

Memory timings are:

2.5 3 2 5

Any help would be appreciate it. Asking here because it seems you guys are the gurus of all that is computer related.

It's possible that there was a power surge and one or both of your memory sticks were overvolted or soemthing. Try booting with one stick in at a time, and see what happens.

By the way, welcome to Overclock.net. Please fill out your System Specs in User CP(upper left corner), and it'll help us to help you in the future =).

1. Have you tested eash module with memtest?
2. If they test out OK then you may have OS and or softwares corruption.
