Corsair Dominator 8500C5 problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just built a new system. As I've been adjusting the cpu frequency, adjusting the bus speed, and finding ideal fsb:ram ratios my new corsair dominator ram 2x2 GB (TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF) has been giving me issues. They don't seem to want to run at 1066 or any higher at their rated timings of 5-5-5-15. I have the voltage set to 2.00 and running them at 1032 in order to be stable enough to pass orthos and prime95. If I increase the voltage to 2.1 or higher it either crashes from the stress test or windows won't load. This ram is rated for 2.1-2.2.

I haven't adjusted the mch voltage, could that be the problem?

Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
