RAM or Mobo failure?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, after many "lockups" I decided to take 1 hour to test each ram stick and each dimm slot using memtest86(+), here are my results:


I highly doubt that EVERY stick went bad, could it be the ram module/controller that went bad? Could this be the reason my system is being so unstable?

DIMM 1
Slot: 1
Failed Address: 0003feed18
Where: 1022.8MB
Slot: 3 (same stick)
Failed Address: 0003feed18
Where: 1022.8MB

DIMM 2

Slot: 2
Failed Address: 0003feedf18
Where: 1022.8MB
Slot: 4
Failed to Post

DIMM 3
Slot 1:
Failed Address 0003feedf18
Where: 1022.8MB
Slot 4:
Failed Address 0003feedf18
Where: 1022.8MB

DIMM 4
Slot: 2
Failed Address 0003feedf18
Where: 1022.8MB

Update your BIOS. I've had the same problem with my memory on Gigabyte EP35 DS3R, but after update from F1 to F3e the problem was gone. The reason I suspect it's BIOS problem is because all memory modules have the errors in exactly the same address. Actually, memtest86 from DOS recognizes it as a problem, but memtest from windows doesn't find any errors.

Search for this error address online - you'll see you're not the only one having the same problem.

I can't say what the problem of the lockups might be. With me, I found that I had my computer giving continous restarts when using Buffalo Firestix 800mhz at less than 2.1v, required by the manufacturer. Even though I was running that memory at 533mhz, at 1.8v I was getting BSDs and random crashes right and left. Increasing voltage to 2.1v solved all the problems immediately.

Have you tried loosening the DRAM Timings? Also, increasing voltage like Bermuda.Triangle said helped me a lot.

My current ram configuration looks like this:
5-5-5-15
2.2v
830mhz

thos are really loose timings

i just went into bios and heres the current configuration:

CPU Clock Ratio: 8x |________415*8 = 3.32Ghz
--------------FSB: 412 |

RAM Multiplier: 2x |--- 830Mhz
5-5-5-15 (manually locked)

(G)MCH Overvoltage: +0.375v
FSB Overvoltage: +0.30v
vCore: 1.36875v
