8GB Kingston with M5A97 settings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I started this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/1171395/first-build-immediate-bsod-problems

To find out why my new build was constantly BSOD'ing. But now that I have found the problem I need some advice on how to fix it.

This is my ram 8GB kingston: http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX29792

And this is my MOBO: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A97/

My ram is not on the QVL for my motherboard. Now I have my Kingston in my MOBO running memtest86+ plus right now and I expect it to fail any minute. What I'm asking is what settings in bios should I change to try and make my ram compatible with my MOBO?

Thanks

thanks rdr09 that looks like a great place to start. Hopefully that setting works first try.

And droptone when I set my ram to auto I kept getting the BSOD, while installing and running windows.

I am completely stumped. So my 8gb Kingston just did a pass in Memtest with no errors. Does Memtest just test ram or does it test ram and mobo together?

Return the Kingston RAM. Kingston makes some really shady products. Buy some other value RAM. Specifically, make sure that the RAM that you buy is on that list.

After changing my ram settings in bios to 9-9-9-27 1.65v and 1600mhz (from 1333mhz, 1.5v, 9-9-9-24) I have now been running 2 hours with no blue screen of death. And that game I talked about in my first thread that would keep failing to install after counltess reboots is now running smoothly.

I will update this thread again so hopefully this can serve as help to someone else with same problems.

I will know the problem is 100% solved when I reinstall windows 7 in a few hours here as last time it BSOD'ed around 3 times.
