One stick shows its part number as "F4ä" The other reports it as F4-4266C19-8GTZR
SPD tables looks exactly the same. I would try to dump the "good" one onto the bad one. The issue here is that the "good" one has SPD Checksum (Bytes 80h-FDh): A01Ch (Error)

My sticks are not in the database yet so I cannot copy from a known good one. Am I looking at an RMA?


Maybe someone else can provide a Hex dump from that kit. Perhaps even ask GSkill.....

RMA is a hammer to crack a nut. It would be good to understand the Hex dump and just correct it as you want.

I agree, it is a bit of hassle. What are the chances of me screwing this up?
I've never had to rewrite memory before.

Its pretty straight forward if you have a clean hex dump. I suppose you could maybe use the next one down in the list if you lose a stick. not certain about that though.

Probably the same apart from speeds.

Or a user called Voodoo Jungle is the developer of Thaiphoon I think, could PM him and ask.

Or email support at Thaiphoon. There are a few options. As long as you have one good stick to boot the machine you can fix it.

 

I think I was about 10 minutes from losing both sticks before I realised what was going on.

I returned mine, but my SPD's looked a lot worse than yours so far. I doubt that G.Skill will endorse reflashing your SPD, they would more likely tell you are voiding any warranty. There is a Youtube that has been referenced somewhere in this thread about a guy who did not even try reflashing but RMA'd to G.Skill and they told him he had made unauthorized blah, blah, blah, and told him tough luck , basically, though apparently he did get them to honor the warranty eventually. I do not know where you purchased your memory, but if you decide to return it, and still can, I think the easiest way is to return through your vendor.

Having said all that, there are several guys here who have reflashed using Thaiphoon, and have apparently had excellent results. I don't think any of them had any previous experience doing this, and they said it was easy with Thaiphoon.

The symptoms of corrupted SPD's that I experienced - other than the obvious corrupted SPD readings - were difficulty rebooting which got progressively worse, and generally declining stability.

But this implies uninstalling aura totally so it does not prevent GSKill from loading.
The only software I know of that can repair the tables is T.B. There may be other software.

The Gskill forum has some instructrions.

Thank you, but no changes in the situation with or without G. Skill Tool.

Quiet with envy. I want to see his HWinfo after 10 Max runs of Intel Burn Test AVX.

So i've been having trouble with my OC recently and trying to get it stable. Looking for some help/advice.

My goto daily driver OC for my 1800x has been 3.97 Ghz w/ 2743 MHz ram (16-16-16-16-39), 103.0 BCLK, VCore 1.395V, and SOC 1.1V - It was rock solid, however the other day i started having issues where under load it would start to hard crash with "8" Q-code and DRAM flashing. Similar to this thread https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?91683-High-Load-DRAM-amp-Q-Code-8 The only thing i changed about my system was that i installed a new HDD.

Trying to rule out DRAM, i set it back it its 2133 MHZ default (Corsair LPC 32Gb kit @ 3000 fwiw), however i still had system crashes with a CPU OC running. I turned down the OC to something like 3.9 Ghz w/ VCore of 1.45V which should absolutely be sustainable, however same crash.

Tried unplugging the new HDD, same issues. Tried running the built Asus TPU OC tool, it fails to ever get past the first OC increment (100mhz blck w/ 38.75 multiplier). Running Cinebench back to back a few times will result in the 8 Q-code w/ dram flashing.

This was all on 1002 BIOS, also tried updating to 1107 but i have the same issue.

I also ran memtest86 to test memory and cache, didnt have any issues there.

The only way my system is stable now is by not doing any sort of OC. I'm at a loss on this one, would welcome any help.

First thing you need to do is uninstall Asus Aura and never use it again.

When I tried to use Thaiphoon Burner just to read my SPDs, the program became really slow after the 3rd SPD. I don't think my SMBus likes it.

Does anyone else have coil whine from your motherboard? Mine does. I disabled C-States and it seems to have gone away. Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same, and what affects will disabling C-States have.
