I suspect memory controller failure. Where do I go from here? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
ok so, I got it stable for the duration i've been testing it at 1.59-1.65v on the second bank of slots. So i supposed the MB is indeed delivering less voltage than stated or it just need the ram to be overvolted at those speeds. Seems so simple a solution but thanks for the help. Had to reinstall windows at least 4 times due to the inconsistent memory stability.

Don't sweat it. It's the RAM. It happens... Not all their chips are perfectly stable at 1.5v and they don't throw away good chips only because they need 1.575v instead of 1.5v. They don't label them 1.65v either, because technically they are better than this. It happend to me too. And who knows to how many others that never test their RAM and end up with "unstable PC" or "i had an AMD PC, horrible. Horrible motherboard, BSODs all the time, etc".

If you read Newegg reviews, every now and then, there is the unfortunate user that says his RAM doesn't run stable at 1.5v. Welcome to the club...
