I don't understand why I'm still having this problem with IBT? It runs and passes fine with 1 stick of memory installed, but not both. I ran 10 passes ~11hrs of memtest on both sticks and they pass with no errors. Should I up the voltage more? They say 1.8v on the side and I have them running @ +0.2 in bios.
Humph... The only reason i've come up with IBT seeing less RAM is because it only sees free windows memory... not the whole amount of RAM installed.



And the rest is probably cuz u have a 32-bit Windows,and are trying to run "old style DOS" program with more than 2GB's of RAM... Try running the x64 bit version of linpack and see if it even tries to run on a 32-bit Vista...

And as far as your ram is concerned... i think def is 1.9V (if you have CL5 version). If you running CL4 then its more 2.0-2.2V depends... Check your modules for exact voltage...

EDIT: Guess i was bit late on the available ram issue... , Oh and i just saw that you said they run 1.8V default... they shouldn't need more than than if theyre not OC'd... If you set timings to CL4 perhaps theres your problem... then they'll need:

1. more voltage
2. slower timings

Thanks for the replies...
I'm not so concerned with the amount of memory it sees because I realize that running a 32-bit system will only recognize 3.2-3.4gb minus the GPU memory. I only installed 4gb to take complete advantage of the maximum Windows would recognize.

However, my concern is that it fails and says there isn't enough memory available on max stress. So as glussier says, I run the test on 1/2 stress and it works fine, I just passed 10 iterations of IBT and I'm working on 2hr OCCT right now. I only want to stabilize my OC and it's hard to tell when it's stable or not when you can pass certain programs and not last 2 seconds on others.

@miloshs
On the side of my ram it says 1.8v...however I looked at the specs on newegg and it says 1.9v. So what should I set the voltage at if I am only running it @ 450mhz, 5-5-5-18? Right now it's set @ +0.2 in bios and I think default is 1.8v, therefore 2.0v?

Thanks again guys


EDIT: see link for ram

The reason you fail IBT testing is cuz you're trying to run the test with 2.4GB's of RAM and the program can only use as much as 2GB's... And therefor it fails miserably cuz its missing 400MB of memory that it needs to run. At least thats how i see things on that issue. As glussier said, try limiting available memory to 2GB's and youll probably pass the test easy...

I'm guessing 2.0V is enough for 900mhz (or did you mean "real" 450mhz?)... Anyhow i think 2.0V is probably (or 2.1V tops) enought voltage for anything that your RAM can handle without burning up

Quote form Newegg customer review:
Quote:
i've had the original ver1 of this ram for over 6months. the second time i ordered it, i received version2

ver2 is graded for 1.8v and not 1.9v as advertised.
another one:
Quote:
Running at DDR-922, 5-5-5-5-18-2T SPD @ 2.2 volts, perfectly stable (overnight Othos/2xPrime95).
Newegg customer reviews are defacto much better than any review out there... You can really see if the stuff is worth having. The downside is, that it takes too much time to read all of them (780 reviews on your Corsairs)

If you can run 10 repetitions of IBT, 2 hours of OCCCT will be a piece of cake. You should after try your regular apps and make sure they are still working. IBT and OCCCT will test your cpu and ram, but your other peripherals, graphic card, hard-drive, usb ports etc haven't been tested yet on your overclocked system.

What are you guys temps while running IBT at your max stable OC's? Running it at 3.6GHz@1.36V and seems kinda high at 66oC...

It depends on, if I run IBT just after a reboot of after having used the computer for a while.

Note that the more ram you have, the earlier you run ibt after a reboot and a 64bit o/s will increase your temps.

If I run IBT just after a reboot with vista 64bit and 8gB of ram, the max cpu temp is 81c. If I run some apps before running ibt, my max cpu temp is around 65c.

IBT will stress less your system with a 32bit o/s, however ibt will guarantee that you are stable under that 32bit o/s, but you'll have to retest if you are switching to a 64bit o/s.


Note that there is no real problem running ibt and exceeding Intel's recommended temp, that is exactly what ibt was designed for, just don't run it 24/7 every day. I use ibt for my highest stable overclock, but don't use it to test my intermediate frequencies on the way to the frequency I want to keep using my overclocked computer.

Seems logical, do you guys not have this problem....or do you run 64-bit OS?

I saw that first review you posted from newegg once I linked it in my last post. So I guess that means I have ver2. But then that makes you wonder what version the second quoted customer review has? If it is the 1.9v version and is stable @ 2.2v, should I try my 1.8v @ 2.1v? Also, my FSB is 300, mem multi is set @ 3. So it's running 900mhz right now on 2.0v

My temps on IBT running 3.6Ghz @ 1.36 are 67c max, and right now on OCCT @ same speed and voltage 54c.

BTW glussier,
how would I test the other apps, just run them? Because I'm running IE and Itunes while the stress tests are going on....sure they move slowly, but everything seems operational.

EDIT: I just saw in your sigs that you guys are running Vista x64.....what are the benefits of running 64-bit besides increased memory? I have XP x64 but never thought of running it. Vista x32 seems to be fine for me if all I gain is .7 Gb of ram.

Nothing special, just run your apps normally to make sure they are still working properly on your overclocked system.

The biggest advantage of running a 64bit o/s for the home user is access to a larger amount of memory.

dJhunt, sounds like you are having a dual channel compatibility issue. Put each stick in separate channels so that they do not run dual channel. If they pass, check with Gigabyte and make sure your RAM is compatible.

Also, run a blended Orthos test on single sticks. I'm guessing one stick is going bad, if it's not a compatibly issue.

Alright, thanks guys
I started to think maybe it could be a mobo problem too after the sticks passed memtest individually. I also posted a few pages back that with only one stick installed (tried it with each one) it passes IBT no problems. However, like miloshs and glussier suggested, running 1/2 stress seems to work since it keeps the memory used for stress testing under 2gigs for the 32-bit version of IBT.

If I install them in seperate channels, will it still be 4gb (or whatever Windows recognizes) just not running dual channel? Is there a downside to not running dual channel if it still utilizes all available memory?
