Asus P5B Eating Memory.:(

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I finally got my Tuniq backplate from the Sunbeamtech rep and installed it last night. My loads temps are now under control and more overclocking can commence.

With that said I tried running my memory and CPU at the same frequencies as before when I was using the Tuniq. This time around I am getting BSODs upon startup and program errors while in Windows. The frequencies and voltages are all the same.

Orthos would pass small FFTs, but not blend so I figured it had to be the memory. I popped in Memtest86 and sure enough after the 7th test I had around 5 errors.

This is now my 4th set of memory I will have to replace while using the P5B-Deluxe board. I have heard other people having similar problems, but it has never been a definitive answer for me. I thought the HZ sticks were going to solve my problems, but I guess not.

So, does anyone else have problems with their P5Bs eating memory?

I have had my memory fail recently...not due to the mobo though, it was due to running them at 950+mhz on 2.3v.

other than that...no issues with the board at all. Q-> what are the temps on your NB..or can you tell?

Memtest has a series of 8 tests in which it completes to test your memory. Each stresses the RAM in a different fashion. How long have you been running each of your sessions?

I have been running my memory at 2.25v, but with the droop its around 2.2. I think the HZ kit should be able to handle that. I have a TT Extreme Spirit II on my NB for cooling. Load temps are around 46c.

What is your vDimm for the system? I have been running 2.15 almost everyday without a hitch until this. I remember Franken PC having the same problem as me or it could have been someone else.

Hopefully Newegg sympathizes with me and will cross ship another HZ kit. Thankfully I bought an extra Kingston 512mb stick for such occasions.

I currently am running:

Hz's @ 850 mhz @ 2.0 volts (maybe 2.1) with 4-4-4-8-4 timings

I ran 2.25v (in Windows but in BIOS was set to 2.30v) for about 4 straight months and then switch to the 4:5 ratio and now I'm at 2.10v and been like that for 5 months straight. So, went from 1,000mhz to 878mhz and no issues.

Hmm, that is odd. I don't know why my board is acting up then. Maybe I just get back luck with memory. Maybe a new P5K will fix my issues.
