I have been getting memory related problems on a 6 month old system. I could only boot from one stick of RAM (Corsair TW3X4G1333C9A) but even then system was not stable for gameplay or stability test though this stick did pass overnight memtest. I returned the board, cpu and memory for them to test. They diagnosed faulty RAM and replaced. Well it worked OK for 24 hours then I started getting BSOD "PFN_List_Corrupt" and "Memory_Management" crashes.

I tested the new sticks and one fails memtest after a few seconds with 2378 errors and the other, although it passes memtest with 20 passes, crashes out straight away on Prime95 Blend Test (i.e. the one that stresses RAM).

They suggested I enter DDR Voltage manually rather than relying on Auto but no matter what I seem to enable this option is greyed out. Does anyone know which settings need changing from defaults so I can get at the voltage section?
I have tried swapping around the dimms but they are all the same regardless so not a slot problem. Now of course, I don't see it as a RAM problem either unless I am the unluckiest person to keep getting bad sticks.

So now I think maybe something on the board or CPU is causing damage to the RAM or at least causing it to mis-report. Could a fault in the memory controller be doing this and if so how can I test for this?

At my wit's end here. Hope someone has some ideas - either on how to access DDR Voltage in the BIOS or get to the cause of my problem.

Many thanks.
You need to set the ram timings and voltage manualy,to do this you highlite the option you want to change and use the + and - keys on far left of your keyboard to change values.Hope this helps.

Dont hesitate to ask if you get stuck.

Edit,thats far right not left,my mistake.

Is there some specified way to update the BIOS for a GPU? I've looked into my gpu, and found someone else's gpu-z results for the same graphics card, and their BIOS Version is newer than mine.

Flashing GPU bios's is not recomended,can easily brick the card and void your warranty.Most people who do this are using moded bioses.

Not sure about the CMOS error... I've never seen it. Maybe try setting to failsafe in bios before you flash.Someone else may have some insight on this.

Set your memory voltage to the default manually instead of auto.I dont think your ram is the problem. If your crashing in 3DMark that quick, then I think one of your 5770's is the problem, or as I said before, it could be the ATI driver....or a corrupt windows install.... just a thought, but how old is this install?


Maybe try 1 card in top slot, then run 3DMark again..then swap cards,and run again.If they pass 3D separately, try swapping their position while they are together. If you run them separately, turn PCI-e volts back to auto.

It could also be one of the slots on the MB. You can try using just slot 3 if they both pass on slot 1.

Just a little pointer,3dmark 06 is cpu intensive,vantage is gpu intensive,Hope this helps.

Like moorhen2 says, it will more than likely void your warranty. But this should never be done on a system that isn't stable. Only after your 100% stable and you want to push your video card.

The Asus flash for the 5770 will get a normal 5770 to run at 1000/1350 at stock volts, and some even higher, but DO NOT do it till your know your stable.
