Memory passes memtest, fails Windows?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK, I'm having an odd problem with my memory.

I ran memtest awhile back and upon starting, all 8GBs in (OCZ + Corsair Dominators, clocked down to ocz level) it would fail. Miserably. 65k+, until I stopped it. Thought it was my OCZ ram, but I try to reproduce the error, and it passes. 5 times.

I boot into windows, and its pretty fine. Go play GTA IV and I get freeze-ups ever now and then, but then it goes back to normal. Then I get errors with textures, then a black screen and crash.

Run Intel Burn Test, At ALL STOCK SETTINGS (that is how its been the whole time) and it fails within a 70 seconds.


What is this? Memory's fault? I just got this board brand new from RMA cause the last one had problems similar, but this was a new S/N board..
Odd thing is, two of the slots, when memory is inserted, makes a kinda "crunching" noise..but I'm not sure. Its very weird, a friend who repairs computers at Frys was baffled at the noise as well.




Sorry for the block of text, but what is going on?

What sort of temps are you getting? Games freezing and displaying oddly tend to be GPU or PSU issues.
