Changed RAM new problems. Reset OC to stock.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My set up is as follows:

i5 2550k @ stock
Sabertooth p67 rev b3.0 bios version 3302
2x8gb Patriot g2 1600mhz
EVGA GeForce GTX 680
Mushkin 120g SSD
Windows 7 Home Premium.

Recently I have swapped out my RAM.
From
2x4gb Mushkin Silver Stiletto pc3-10666 1333mhz (9-9-9-24) 1.5v
to
2x8gb Patriot G2 division 2 pc3-12800 1600mhz (9-9-9-24) 1.5v

The day after the swap I experienced a BSOD for no apparent reason.
Ran 4 iterations of Memtest86, no problems.
booted system to run Prime95.
well running P95 I got another BSOD before P95 had a worker fail.
(note: custom blend max FFT size at 32768k still only used 3.XXgb of ram; as opposed to the 8g of mushkin which used almost all available RAM)

Assuming my OC was no longer stable.
I reset everything.
updated my BIOS to 3302

and now I am getting some strange problems

Boot time is fine, but windows login takes forever now.
occasionally windows media player will open itself and move itself to be front window.

something seems off, and I am having trouble rooting out the problem. I am really not sure where to begin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You may need to alter the CPU voltage or VCCIO voltage.

Running higher frequency memory, or higher density memory may require more voltage. Sometimes to the CPU itself, other times to VCCIO which basically helps for running faster or more sticks of memory on 1155. That's why your existing OC was not stable. As far as the slowness I really don't know. Could still be instability (although unlikely at stock, it is still possible) or corruption from running a bad OC for a while. If you can't fix it with settings I would do a format and reload if you're up for it.

just start from the ground up.... i was afraid of that. but i still want to resolve what my issue is.

It seems i get a better result manually setting the DRAM settings (9-9-9-24-1t) as opposed to loading the XMP profile. (which keeps setting my ram at 9-9-9-24-3T) maybe if i get another failure i will set to 2t and start again?

this is a pain. I am not certain as to what the source of the problem is, and feel uncomfortable moving forward without knowing what the exact issue is. likely ram, since the swap. but i want to avoid a format for the time being.

Some diagnosis tools would help.

BSOD screen capture might help in the event of another BSOD.

Some BIOS settings I may be over looking could help too (such as VCCIO)

now MemTest86 I boot from my disk drive. Is their something i could test my memory with from the desktop?

as for the slow loading after login, could that relate to bios settings in regards to my SSD?
my read/write speeds dont seem to be right. but i do believe i have the bios setup the same as i did before the reset.

I forgot that the larger DIMMs would probably cause the IMC within the processor to have to work harder. You could give a boost of voltage to both the CPU and the RAM.

Though a reformat could solve a lot of problems, really. It may take some time but if you back things up and take notice of how you like your OS to be set up, it shouldn't take much longer than a day to get everything back to familiar scenery.

Yes... then i have to make sure everything is table,then begin OCing again. tune, prime, tune, prime, a couple more days ugh...

If i am going to spend days formatting and tuning i may as well spend a couple finding out exactly what my problem is.

Just to correct the original post in this thread, the VCCIO voltage does not have to be within .05v of the DRAM voltage as TwoCables pointed out. This was only a limitation for the X58 platform (well 1366 CPUs really) and not present in Sandy Bridge.

Sandy Bridge does not require there to be a maximum of 0.5v between the VDIMM value and the VCCIO and VCCSA values when 1.65v voltage modules are used.
