Quick memtest question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi guys i am running memtest for the first time from my usb stick.

when i start memtest i noticed that on one line its says settings Ram 320mhz (DDR640) Cas 1-3-3-3 / DDR2 (64 bits)

is this right?

because my ram is set at 8-8-8-24 1600


if this is right is it safe to go out and leave memtest running for 3 hours on its own ?

The speed may be an error but I've never really heard of memtest messing up the speeds that much, you might want to go into Windows and CPU-Z to verify it's running at what you want it to.

Either way, yes its fine to let it run.

Do I need to disable USB latancy and if so how? Or should I just try and use memtest on a disc ?

It says I have right right setting for the ram set. I used a profile that was already in my bios which set it to 8-8-8-24 1600 2T 1.5v

What do you mean disable USB Latency?

And no you shouldn't have to use a disk, I use memtest off of a Flash Drive all the time.

someone the corsair forum told me to disable my usb lagacy so i did and then it didn`t show my usb stick in the bios, so i have enabled it again. i have also tried memtest on a disc and it comes up with the same as the usb stick?

whats the point in running memtest if it comes up with setting that i don`t even have ?

just letting you know that i have given up a put everything back to auto if i`d of know that to get the ram to the settings on the box meant overclocking i wouldn`t of bothered getting the ram with the lower timings.

it wont hurt to keep it on auto will it ?

fyi, Memtest doesn't actually set the timings to the values it reports ... it just, ehr, misreports.
Either way, DOS Memtest (the one you run) is only good for detecting faulty sticks and, generally, is not a good stability test (in most cases, it's weaker than SuperPi 32M). So if you're testing your new 24/7 settings I suggest you try HCI Memtest (i.e. this one) or Prime blend to verify memory stability.
