Question about my RAM and MOBO

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
A few months back my old Motherboard fried when my power supply blew. So i go and get a new one and about 8GB of RAM and all seems fine, except anytime i play a game my video drivers continusly crash. So a few days ago pretty much being fed up with the constant crashing i decide to try putting in my old 4GB of RAM and see if it still happens. I figured since games ran fine before i changed RAM they should run fine if i go back. And well it did run fine so now my question is, Should i go and get a different set of 8GB RAM?
What i was using was
CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1333C9

My old 4GB RAM
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBRM (Not sure if thats the exact model, but its close enough i guess)

My Motherboard
MSI 870S-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Before jumping the gun I would at least try running memtest on your RAM. Prior to that though I would make sure that your timings are set correctly in your BIOS. The corsair should run a 9-9-9-24. If you have the opyion to run XMP mode in your BIOS I would give that a try as it should detect and adjust accordingly.

This was the reuslt after 1 pass of the memtest. I'm not really sure what this means. Does it mean my memory is bad and I should go get some new ones?

Not too sure but whenever I have run it it uasualy states clearly whether there is a fault or not.

Try google the code you got.

I couldn't find anything any of the codes they gave me. But they said that the error confidence value if its over 100 then you have a problem and I don't think its fixable though. So should I just get some new RAM? Any suggestions for a god dual channel 8GB set for a gaming rig?
