Sabertooth 990FX with 32GB Vengance 1866 ver 3.24 Endless random BSODs

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey there.

I recently decided to upgrade my ram.

I went from 8GB ( 4x2 GB) Kingston Hyper X blu 1333 MHz.
And I upgraded to 32GB (4x8GB) Corsair Vengence 1866 MHz. ( ver 3.24 )

And I have had NOTHING but problems. Completely random BSODs, various programm errors, flash crashing all the time.
The BIOS seems to have trouble picking up the right speeds, it picks up odd values like 1159 MHZ and 782 MHz. It rarely lets me pick 1866.
It was stable for a few hours once when it let me pick 1666 as its speed on the BIO, but it didn't last

I contacted Corsair support. They said turn the RAM down from 1866 to 1666 as my AMD FX 8350 couldnt run all 4 DIMMS at 1866.
Tried this without much success, still random BSODs. Even completely resetting my BIOS didn't help.
I am also running the latest BIOS update from ASUS.

I have since put my old ram back in, running 100% crash free once again. Not 1 single issue.

Anyone have any ideas that can help me to get this to work? Or am i just going to be sending it back to get a refund?

1) you can contact Corsair George here on the forums. He's our Corsair rep.

2) You may have faulty ram, run memtest 86 on it

This.

The 8350 is also really pick on RAM so it is possible that kit won't run 1866 with it. I just had an issue with Mushkin 1866 only running 1333, I have now ordered G Skill Trident 2x8Gb 1866 because it is supposed to work with the 8350. First thing you should do is test is it is defective though.

Should of gone faster.... 2400MHz all the way! It's the kit Iv'e got. even though I can't run it at that speed.

Back on topic.... You should play around with the timings, starts off with 1600MHz @ 8-8-8-9-24-28 1T and see how it goes.

But a try on memtest will give you the results you need that would tell you if your RAM is faulty.

A little off topic, but what is the point of RAM faster than 1600MHz? for the added cost the increase in performance isn't exactly impressive

Not much of a price difference between 1866 9-9-9-27 and 1600 8-8-8-24 currently, so why not get the faster RAM?

Is this the kit you purchased? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233390
Looking at the reviews it seems like it's a faulty product.

It could also be the bus speed. Set it at 200 and see what happens.

Well after talking to corsair support once again.. they now suggest putting my ram to 1333 MHz. Blaming the 8350s RAM controller for my BSODs...yeh sure...

But that didn't change a thing, still endless random different BSODs. Even putting it to 1066 didn't change a thing. The ram is going back to where it came from.

On a side note, can anyone suggest another set of RAM that will actually work?

After I went through the same thing I went with G Skill Tridents, some one recomended them to me and I am 100% satisfied. Plus unless you get a defective kit they should work. I have the dual channel kit and it works just fine, but I have heard things about quad channel kits running poorly, but as you just used one I think you can understand that.
