Just went from 4gb to 8gb on my Asus CHIV, possible issue.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently doubled the amount of G.Skill Ripjaws memory in my rig, went from 2x2gb to 2x2x2x2gb.

The RAM used is G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1600 PC3-12800. By default my first 4gb ran at 1600, voltage is default, never tried to overclock or adjust the timings. Pretty sure the timings were defaulted to 9-9-9-24.

Just received another 2x2gb kit today from Newegg, same exact ram. Install went fine, showing 8gb, no issues there. But after running Everest Ultimate I noticed this...



Slots 1 & 3 on this board are where the first 4gb kit was installed, obviously that leaves slots 2 & 4 for the new 4gb kit.

Do I need to make any changes in BIOS or do these numbers look fine?

Eta: I was running an OC on the CPU @ 4.0GHz, but I kept running in to an instability when playing BFBC2. Otherwise, benchmarks/stress-tests/F@H...everything I could throw at it, it took and smiled. I decided to just go back to stock clock because I play BFBC2 a lot and I didn't know what that halt/reboot meant. Wasn't sure if it needed more voltage, or an NB bump or whatever. So everything is running at default clocks right now, except video.

in the BIOS did you modify the video clock?

No, not even sure I'd be able to do that. I have the video clock adjusted with MSI Afterburner and in the config I have disabled the ATI PowerPlay.

do a copy of your BIOS settings, then reset to default everything, do stress test again, and check BFBC2 gameplay stability (same time you did before and get instability)
if you get stable, isnt a ram problem, and maybe a OC config problem
if you get instability again, maybe could be a ram problem, try to change the rams positions (sounds weird, but i've solve problems before only changing positions) and do all the process again.

The BFBC2 instability is only when I overclock my CPU to 4.0GHz @ 1.45v. This isn't my problem, I'm running default settings on everything now.

My problem is that everest screenshot. I need to know if those timings look ok or if I need to adjust them. I currently have NO instability issues.

Ohhh!! then first of all Everest its buggy, sometimes showed my CPu oced at 99º, and lots of stuff, Aida64 its the new everest, check that software, works better.
And even better its this:

I have CPU-Z and it only shows main timings and clocks, not individual module timings. It says 9-9-9-24-2T.

So does this mean I'm good to go? I don't plan to OC the RAM or tighten the timings, I just wanted to make sure the install of my second 2x2gb kit went ok and BIOS did what it was supposed to do.
