I did that and they all worked except that one slot and by the test its a stress test, and when i shut it down it took like 3 minutes at shutting down with the spinning Vista hourglass so..its not stable i guess

Will one of the other sticks work in that slot? Starting to seem like you have a faulty motherboard. Also it might be unstable because of the motherboard, try lowering the FSB.

Wow I've never heard of something like that... really puzzling, now it seems more like that stick is faulty but sometimes works. Can you get all 4gigs working correctly? Avoiding that bad stick in that one slot.

Yeah i can put them all in and have everything work fine but the second i try to oc anything past 1366mhz on the fsb its like everything stops working together that is unless i take out 2 sticks (any two doesnt matter) then it will work but it will be really slow like trying to run crysis on a single core @ 3ghz with all settings very high (yeah it gets that laggy on my desktop when i got past 1366mhz with 2 sticks of ram because i cant get it to oc past 1366 with all 4 sticks)

I was basically just saying that that CyberPower should have tested the PC before they sent it to him. If a setting is off, then that is their fault becuase they are supposed to test the PCs. I have 4 dimms on my board and they are not even all matching and it works great. (I do not have the PQI chips though, so that could be different).

Although, I know you would want to try to fix it yourself instead of having to send it back and be without a PC for a while.

The testing is kinda getting strange results. One test makes it look like the MB is bad and the next, it seems the dimm is bad. I would probably set all the overclocking to stock speeds to troubleshoot though, then you will know it is not causing an issue with any tests.

well before i even wanted to oc i had used it for a few days played some games on it and everything with all 4gigs in (after they told me to set the memory to 667 and not 800) but its annoying how i payed the extra money for the e8400 and liquid cooling so i could oc. you know?

You would think your cyberpower company would check, test, and stress your machine before they gave it to you ?

Send the whole thing back and build your own bro with the help of us at OCN!


I would be glad to help.

It all sounds like a big bunch of ________ .
Sorry for all your problems my friend.
