help with ram, causing video crash?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i just bought a maximus iv extreme z board with 8gigs corsair dominator 1866.

Now, it runs all stability tests fine, prime... memtest... kombuster for vid...

but when i run bf3 I keep getting the "display driver has stopped responding"

this only happens with both sticks of ram, each by themselves runs perfectly fine.

when it crashes it sounds like a sound distortion (a lot of crackling). The comp doesn't crash just the game. I found a couple posts on ram affecting video drivers, is this possible?

any help would be greatly appreciated!

What about your graphic cards, do you have a new card?

Do you get a BSOD, if so, which one?

You have to update your sig!

try lowering your cpu to 4.2 ghz. maintain the same voltage. it could be that the extra ram is putting more stress on the cpu.

I have had some video and other issues when I run 12gb of ram (6 sticks), but when I run 6Gb (3 sticks) its fine. I've had driver errors, loss of video output from primary video card, browser crashing when Flash enabled sites are being used and also issues with installing OS and also drivers for video card when in the OS. Ever since removing 3 sticks of DDR and running 6Gb only, my computer has been fine.

It's what the DDR ram spec states it needs. I ran my 1.5v DDR at 1.60 to 1.64 for it to run stable, but eventually, I started to get issues again, so I went back to 3 sticks.

http://www.corsair.com/memory-by-pro...m2a1600c9.html That kit?

If yes, check the specs. It's 1.65v memory. Put your VRAM to 1.65 and the crashing problem should go away. I am *beyond shocked* that you passed P95 blend stability test - how long did you run it for?

But the crackling sound problem may not go away. I have that and haven't tracked down the source yet...I have seen others post about it but not seen the resolution.
