Random Crashes on DS3L

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a mild overclock on my computer. 8400 running at 3.6, memory is actually underclocked Team Extreme 1000 running at 800 for simplicity sake.

I have been noticing random crashing on programs.

So i first start with my overclock and reduce it back to stock 3.0. That didnt solve the issue.

So i decided to run Memtest and within 30 seconds BAM 1 then 10 then 30 errors. So i stop memtest and pull 1 stick out. I reran memtest and no errors.

So it must have been that stick right? I decide to test the other stick and....huh no errors.

I ran in single channel mode with both sticks and i again got errors. But when i switched from Slots 1 and 3 to 2 and 4 dual mode i got no errors.

Should i consider RMA'ing this motherboard?

Testing modes
#1 Dual channel slots 1 and 3 = fail
#2 Single stick 1, slot 1 = pass
#3 Single stick 2, slot 1 = pass
#4 Single channel both sticks slot 1 and 2 = fail
#5 Dual channel slots 2 and 4 = pass

not sure if this is the same ram as your but the stuff on new egg likes ALOT of voltage 2.35-2.45v make sure it is getting the right amount.

Also teem is not listed on the gigabyte website as supported ram. The reviews on the egg also kinda suck if this is the same ram.

there is also f8f bios too

The memory is from Tankguys and its D9GMH memory. It could however be a compliance issue with the motherboard. I could jack the voltage up and see if that makes things more stable.

I will check into the changes on F8f

Thanks,

Im pretty sure the Super Talent ram that i have has the same or almost identical chips on it, so i'd be surprised if there were a compliance issue. I run it consistently at 1000mhz, but i have noticed there is a vdroop on the ram side of my DS3L. I have to add +.6 to my ram to get it to 2.2v like it should be. What is your fsb and vcore? Sometimes not enough fsb voltage can cause instability and that goes for the vcore as well.

Ok so i like others thought that i needed more voltage on my ram so i have been slowly increasing it with no success.

Seems it wasn't more voltage it wanted it was less. I went back down to 2.0 volts and no memtest errors. I came to this conclusion after i ran a test with my voltage at 2.3 and it started spitting errors within a couple minutes. I happened to stick my hand down on the ram to feel them and they were hot. So it seems my issue has been overvolting my ram and causing them to overheat.

BTW anyone have any good suggestions on how to remove the heat sinks that are on my memory? I have heard they hurt more than they help.

Thanks

I have never heard that ram heat sinks are bad. I would leave them on just get a fan if they are that hot.
