Can't get stable at stock.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm having trouble passing Prime95 on my sig rig at stock setting. I pass Memtest and IntelBurn at stock voltages. But when ever I go to run Prime 1-2 cores will crash in about an hour and within ~20 minutes of each other. I have tried tweaking the voltages from auto to the lowest possible to highest "safe" (staying in the green in bios) and it seems the higher I go it will crash sooner. I have also tried guessing what I would think they should be and that wasn't helping either.

I'm really at a lose here. Any help is greatly appreciated.

System specs:
Q9550 at stock
Asus Rampage Formula x48
8gbs of ram 2x2 OCZ Reapers, 2x2 Corsair MSX2
Win 7 x64

Memtest86 for DOS? If so, that is not a good way to test mem stability. It is better for finding faulty mem.

I see you are using a 8GB config with mixed mem. Try to loosen your timings. Or try upping mem Volts. You could also try to up the NB volt.

Sounds like your ram. Are you running prime95 blend test? Did you make sure you set the ram correctly? If so, I would try raising the voltage a bit. If that doesn't work, losen the timings a bit.

Yea didn't notice that, mixing ram can cause instability. You have to mess with the timings and voltages till you get it stable. It can be a painful process.

Yeah I'm using blend. I think all my ram is set for auto except voltage which is 2.2.

I will give setting my ram a shot.
