Asus Auto-tune o.c problem - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Absolutely! Set as many memory settings manually as you can!

BTW, brand of motherboard doesn't matter. When defaulted, the memory will be reset to a low speed!

Oh I see. Ok will do.

this error checking of the faulty drive has taken all day and it still not done!

next step: Putting back the last stick to total of 16gb, setting speed to 1600mhz in bios and then running MEMtest after that...

Like one of the guys said earlier, inside the bios, Asus usually has memory testing embedded into the bios, so you should run the memory test thats in your bios!
Rather than Memtest.

Update:

I finally did the memtest but i need your help explaining what it means.

Before that, I tried placing the last stick of ram to a total of 16gb again, and while the system seemed to be working well while browsing and the like...as soon as I opened a program (premiere pro) and on another try (black ops) the machine instantly bsod.

please check a jpeg of the last screen shot of the memtest that is still going on currently.

picture.php?albumid=4487&pictureid=25497


please advise if I should run another test with one stick per go to determine which one is faulty, or is there another way to do it?

If this happened only when you placed the last stick of memory in, then you should check that last stick by itself.

Remove all of the other sticks of memory, except for that 1 (last) stick. Place that last stick in your first memory slot, reboot, and run memtest on that one individual stick.

If memtest, reports errors, then you'll have a RMA to do!

Ok. but do I have to wait for so many hours to see if there's a problem or is it safe to say that as soon as i see errors piling I can reboot without finishing memtest? is it safe to stop it?

PS: I didnt try memtest with the other 12gb alone before adding the last one..maybe I should have.

next step: testing 12 gb alone. then last 4gb alone.

Naw, if you start seeing errors piling up on that one memory module, then it's fine to stop! You don't want memory that gives any errors at all.

If you find any errors, there's no point in testing every individual stick. Your gonna need to RMA the whole set. Cause you want to get a whole new matched set of memory!

Oh man...I believe you've just answered my next question.

i did a 3 min wall time on the sticks individually. 2 passed with no errors. 1 with 35 errors and the initially suspected to be faulty over 120000 errors.

I've never RMA before and now I see the catch. there's no returning part of the merchandise is there! mad.gif.

I guess i have to put back my old 1gbx4 in the meantime frown.gif

Thanks Inteller for all the help buddy and everyone who posted here.

No problem! It can sometimes suck, doing a RMA, just stick with it, and you'll get it done!
If it's been less than 30 days, you could return it to where you purchased it. After that, you'll need to go to Corsair's web site/support, and start the RMA process.

Nope, the whole set needs to be replaced!
