Default ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Memory Compatibility List (Unofficial)

In an effort to help everyone with A8N problems, I made this thread so that people won't buy incompatible RAM to compound the problem. Which memory sticks work, and if possible, what timings are you running at, or does SPD (default, didn't change) work? In single/dual channel mode? What brand and size? If possible, which chips does it use (Samsung TCCD, etc.)? Also, please specify the A64 CPU used in conjunction. Lastly, your memory voltage, power supply and/or power supply specs would be helpful too! FastEddie pointed out that the power supply may matter as well. Thanks.

Edit: Sorry guys, this list has been way too hard to maintain because of all the dots and spacing and researching required to complete the data item. I will still add anybody's post to the end though, and try to make it at least a little consistent. It's also very hard to give the people credit for contributing, but everybody who contributed to either of the compatible or incompatible lists will be listed below the list. Sorry I can't credit you next to your contribution but this list is getting massive, plus I have consolidated (exact) duplicates for ease of reading . I'm sorry it's not organized better but I just don't have the time to put in everyone's power supply like I asked. Since this thread is relatively short, hopefully people can just scroll through and view people's PSUs, and other valuable information that had to be omitted to fit in the table (the earlier posts; I'd rather keep them organized).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following list of modules is separated by bullets. Under the bullet follows the information. Please notify me if I have made an error in your post.
[*]1b (512x2) Crucial Ballistix Tracer pc4000 DDR500 works here.

Default of 2.5/3/3/8 at 200mhz 1.8v 2t
and
overclock 220x10 4x HT ~ 2.2ghz at same settings working perfect here. know I could higher but waiting on HSF.

3200+ Winchester
Ultra X-Connect 500wt
2 eVGA 6600Gt in SLI
[*]512 x 2 Kingston HyperX PC3000 BH-5, Default timings, A64 3000+, 6600gt

will update when i do some overclocking.
[*]Kingston HyperX PC3200 (512 x 2) at stock timings (2-3-2-6-1T) works great on my A8N-SLI. I haven't done any overclocking. Here is a link to the ram.
[*][2] 512MB Samsung (M368L6423FTN-CCC)
Seasonic Super Storm 400W (dual 12V rails, 24 pin (SS-400-HS))
Mine seem to be working OK, although I haven't run an official test yet.
[*]2x Corsair CMX256A-3200C2PT, 2-3-3-6 1T timings, 2.7 vdimm

havent overclocked, but this RAM works at stock with the A8N SLI Deluxe for sure.
[*]Name: Corsair TWINX1024-4400C25
CPU: Winchester 3000+
Speed: PC4400
Timings: Default from spd 2.5-4-4-8 (I run 240X9 2.5 3 3 8 t1, haven't tinkerd to much with low timeings)
Voltage: Default 2.75
Chip: TCCD
Dual: Yes
Size: 512MB
Quantity: 2

Can't seem to go over 240mhz with T1 times and 1:1 ratio on this a8n, just like everybody else. I'm praying that it's a bios fix, If not. Hello ebay, goodbye a8n. I need a SLI board that can handle 295mhz with good memory settings.
[*]At least Kingston Value Ram Kit(1gig) CL2.5 works, manual tells only about CL3 support, I'm traiding this to that hyper x.
[*]Add Geil Value 512mb PC3200. Great list.
[*]I have successfully tested the following memory with my A8N-SLI:

Corsair XMS 3200C2 2x512 2-3-3-6
Kingston DDR 500 PC4000 2x512 3-4-4-8 and 2.5-3-3-7
PQI Turbo PC3200 2x1024 3-4-4-8 and 2.5-3-3-7

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A8N-SLI Deluxe Incompatible:
[*]TakeMS 512 mb modules BD512TEC500 seems not to work in dual channel gives memory fail test. Also there is data corruption in windows with this memory and all sort of BSODs.
Not to mention you cant install windows at all because u get windows cant copy something.dll file...
At least it is so in my setup. Oh yeah i got mem fail test with two modules in both 1002 and 1003.5 and 1003,8 bioses...meanwhile asus pulled the betas off the site...so i hope there is hope yet.
One module in B1 slot works good...Two in A1 and B1 is a no-no.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Possible/Unknown/Mixed Results/"Boots but doesn't work" List:
[*]having issues with my rig (a8n-sli-d,3500,corsair xms pro 3200s

ran fine for a week after setup, but this was due to not utilizing system and pressing a full load. weekend came and after loading doom3 and prince of persia, and ut2004. all games crashed with BSOD, mem dumps.

checked bios...
system is set on quiet and cool, running 32-34c idle temps. no oc'ing done. bios set to auto. tried manually configuring dram setup to 2.2.2.5 @1t... noticed mem was set to 200mhz on auto??? changed to 400mhz. games now sort of play, but game integrity is comprimised: sluggish motion, flickering and motion clipping going on. still occasionally crashes. while games are in play windows task manager is showing cpu usage at 100% constant.

bought another video card to test, swapped... and same problem.

pulled mem channel a, same problem. swapped b out with other ddr module, same problem.

i am assuming this is a memory issue, and thanks to this article i see it isnt a compatibility issue, but if anyone has a suggestion or similar problems plz chime in.

***also, my ez selector card was dual card side in slot, even though the manual says it comes factory for single use. to make it more confusing the dumb bastard in charge of the user manual used a picture of the dual card side in the selector right next to where it says "the factory sets ez-selector card for single use"

maybe im just going nuts with these problems but single side should be facing the blue pci-e, right?

Hopefully someone can verify if the Corsair value select is not compatible like Asus's QVL says. Also if this is the case I use 2x512 sticks in the non dual channel slots?

OCZ.3200.EL.Platinum.Rev..2 "Super Stable"

Currently running on air (while confirming system stability) @ 2737 (210FSB) with 2-2-5-2-1T, 2.8V set in bios.

This is officially my first AMD rig and I am surprised at how stable it is. It was harder to "tweak" than my former intel rig but it is the fastest machine I've ever owned/built. Accross the board this stock FX-55 system is faster than my previous 3.2EE@4GHz 875 chipset system.

System Specs:
| FX-55 | A8N-SLI Deluxe | aquacomputer H20 Cooled | 1 GB OCZ EL Platinum Rev. 2 3200 |74GB WD 10K Raptors, RAID 0 | SB Audigy 2ZS OpAmp Modded | Klipsch Pro Media 5.1 | eVGA 6600GT x 2 | NEC ND-3500A | PCP&C 510 SLI | LianLi V1000 | XP SP2 | Dell UltraSharp 2001FP | Hitachi 7K250 160GB SATA Storage |

After discovering that I had one bad module that only worked single channel (replacing just that one fixed it)...

PQI Turbo PC4000 (TCCD) works great. Running at 500MHz with 2.5-3-3-7 timings.

One more question, how do you know if you are running dual channel or not, is it a BIOS setting or what? I have not gotten my A8N-SLI Deluxe yet, hopefully this week.

PDP Patriot 512 PC3200 Kit (2 256 Modules, 2-3-2-5 T1) works, I'll try my PDP Patriot 1GB PC3200 Kit when it comes.

Edit: 1GB PC3200 Kit works (same timings, just 512 modules instead).

Fedex just dropped off my A8N-SLI Deluxe. I'll be putting Mushkin Basic Green into it (512x2) so we'll see how that does. Further reports to come this evening.

Mushkin basic green is fine so far to 225 MHz, 2.5-3-3-7, 2.75 v, 2x512 Meg dual channel.
That's set at 270x10, DDR333, HTT4x, 3200+ @1.5v.
