post #5841 of 9641
Ok, well I've been trying to get some help with my memory from OCZ, but they just blame it on the board saying that it's a OC for this board and it probably can't support it....whatever.

I purchased the OCZ Black Edition Memory 4GB (OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK), but have been unable to run them stable at the stock 1600Mhz 8-8-8-24 1.65v they are rated at. Keep in mind that I have not overclocked anything on the system or modified any voltages, other than the memory voltage.

I initially thought it was a mother board issues, because the memory would pass memtest86+ for 24 hours and the Prime95 Small FFT test would run stable for 12 hours. I had the board RMA'd through Newegg, but I have the exact same problem with the replacement board. The very instant I start a Prime95 blend test @ 1600Mhz 8-8-8-24 1.65v, the system locks up.

I did find that the memory will run @ 1600mhz 8-8-8-24 if it is not in dual channel however. I have no idea what this could indicate. The only way I have been able get the system to be stable during stress tests is with the memory at 1066Mhz.

I have tried it with the following BIOS revisions; 1.7, 1.8, 1.9. Currently the motherboard is using BIOS 1.7.

Please help! What should I try? I'm not really familiar with adjusting voltages for memory stability.

First,welcome to the forum,now lets try and help,have you set the mem timings manualy in the bios,if not your ram will default to it's "SPD"timings,google cpu-z,and download the latest version,it's free.

Here is what it will look like.


Get back to us,and we will help some more.

PS failing blend could be the cpu not the ram.

Thank you for the quick response. I'm not at home currently, but i can get screen shots of my CPU-Z results later tonight. I have indeed set the timings in the BIOS manually to 8-8-8-24 and set it to run at 1600mhz. I also manually set the DDR voltage to 1.65v as OCZ specifies.

I too am a bit afraid that the processor may have a bad IMC, but I don't know who to tell if the memory or the CPU is the culprit.

Thats ok,i take it you have all the other bios settings on "auto" then,if so,this could be the problem.

Here are the only settings I changed in the BIOS
DDR Voltage - 1.65v
Memory Timings - 8-8-8-24 (32)
FSBRAM - 1:4
Spread Spectrum - Disabled

Everything else is at default/auto.

I was looking. There are some decent prices on 1.5TB drives. I could RAID1 2 of those, and still have 1.5TB of redundant storage that is failsafe...I think. Or does RAID 1 require 3 drives.

Ugh. My brain hurts. To much VBA programming.

I need to play a video game...soon

If you raid 2 1.5TB drives in raid 1,ie mirrored,you only get 1.5TB actual storage space,you need raid 0,ie stripped to get 3TB actual storage space,or 2.8TB to be precise.
