4 GB combo prob. 2xOCZ + 2xCorsair -> Problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

First id like to explain the story why on earth i have 2 dif types of ram:
I started building my rig 2months ago buying the set (as shown below) including the OCZ ram.
For some reason the pc did not start put signal to the monitor but did boot up., sooo i took it to the pc shop. They said i should buy different ram, so i boughtthe 2x cosair and it all worked fine.

A few days ago i wanted to play arround and add 1 of the ocz sticks in to see if it worked. It al worked perfect =]
Adding the 2nd it did not work. After playing a round a litle i found the 4 ram sticks together would only work if its place in a certain order as follows:
Slot: #1 Cosair, 2# OCZ, #3 Cosair, #4 OCZ.
Works like a charm.

BUT here are the problems:

1 - OCZ is MENT to run on 2.1v and the Cosair on 1.9v... atm is running on 2v =] happy medium, which works still at recognised at 4GB :-
Is this a problem?

2 - Sometimes i get random blue screening or the PC randomly restarts..
I have tried a DISKCHK /r and said it repaired some stuff..
Im just scared that i will screw up either the OCZ or Cosair sticks...
Is there a solution? or a patch to make the OCZ stick compatible/stable?
I heard turning of warning messages will solve it but my damage the sticks...



I know this is a load to take in, but i have been working on this problem day in and out for the past few days! DRIVING MEH NUTS

I thank you guys MAJORLY in advance!!!!
Thanks and thanks,
BliZmA!

set it to 2.1V. the 1.9V corsair's should be able to handle this.

I know i shouldnt bump posts.... but i am cuz i really need a solution.

Heres an update of what i have done :
I have set voltage of memory to 2.1v (the number goes red in the bios )

I have not had a chance to use the memtest thing as i have just re-installed windows from 64 to 32 to see if it makes a difference... only difference it made is that it only uses 3.25GB (as stated in bios system information).
Hope updating to Vista x64 will make a difference which i will do as soon as its been delivered.
