Unsupported Memory?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have made a few post already about my BSoD. And hope that this will be the last. A bit of background: I keep getting a stop code of 124. I have read, and been told that it's related to vcore, so I bumped it up to 1.3 yet still have the BSoD. I am running everything as stock, except the video card that came overclocked.

After running into this wall I contacted both Gigabyte and Intel to see if I could further find the problem. Through Intel's online chat I received information that has kind of caught me off guard. The rep said that although the mobo may support 1866 ram, the processor doesn't, and gave me a link. http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=52213

He said that the memory controller is up to the CPU and is likely the cause of my problems. I said I would test the ram running at 1333Mhz, and was told that it wouldn't work and I need ram that was meant to be run at 1333 @ 1.5v.

Sadly I don't have any ram that I can test with. I am still under the RMA, so should I send the memory back for lower speeds? Or take another route?

Test with your memory at 1333Mhz 1.5V, memory is memory. I'm pretty sure the 1.5V rated modules are the same thing as the 1.65V rated modules but tested at lower voltage for the clocks & flashed with a SPD made for sandy bridge support.
I've read a few posts where the 1.5v rated memory doesn't do the rated speed & timings without bumping up the vdimm.

But???
Your RAM is rated for 1866 and someone told you they can run 1333ish@1,5v?
Lol?
I bet it can run at this speed with only 1,5v.
Maybe you will have to play around with the timings but this should work!

That's what I thought, RAM is RAM. But he said that I needed modules that were designed to run at 1333Mhz because the DIMM itself is not designed to run at that speed. I just thought that was odd and wanted to see what others here had to say about it.

Lol_v2! You just want to run them @1333MHz (now) and this is the speed the DIMM are designed for (says this guy).
So what is wrong with using you 1866ish RAM in these DIMMs at 1333MHz? Is this guy crazy?
BTW: My RAM is 1333MHz my mobo supports only 1333MHz RAM
My RAM is running at 1456MHz. The DIMMS don`t care about that and are happy like the rest of my RIG.
Good luck with the 1333-try and don`t listen to these tech-guys!
