Memory Clocking

I am experiencing problems with my memory as of late. I have been having alot of BSODs, and I have tested every bit of hardware. All of it works ok.

The OS is XP Pro, freshly installed. The BIOS has been flashed this week.

I fixed my computer once by manually setting the voltage control. However I do not know what the proper setting would be to clock it.

512DDR PC3200

I am almost positive that this will fix it as it has before on this same board. I placed the DIMM into another board and it worked fine. I ran memtest86 while it was installed in the other board and it passed fine.

All I need to know is the proper voltage setting for the RAM.

If you need more info, let me know. I dont have the computer hooked up right now, so I can't tell you too much, unless you need to know, then I will go ahead and get the info for you.

Your help is appreciated.

The correct "safe" range for PC3200 is 2.5v - 2.8v for PC3200 memory, with 2.6v the JEDEC standard.
