I did a 12+ Linx test here and a 24h pass of prime95 blend before setting up the stable clocks for 24/7 usage, better be safe than sorry.

There's no way I can burn my system with it, all parts are under good temperatures even if I don't have your nice ambient temps

Sometimes I use the box to play Battlefield series games and they're a real nice stress test, so it's impossible to run a game like that on unstable RAM or processor for some hours.

Anyway, waiting for a good 1.11 MSI bios

How's the 1090T clocking ?
The 1090T is a very good cpu,AMD have a winner on there hands i think,i'm at 4.2ghz at the moment with 1.470v,very stable,idles at 16c and not gone over 40c under intensive load with linx.

There is problems with the individual cores temperature with Thuban.

You can only trust the actual cpu core for the correct temperature.

Hi, yes. My RAM is 4GB TW3X4G1333C9A XMS3. Corsair site says it is "100% tested compatibility with AMD Phenom". I have now manually set the timings (9,9,9,24,34), the voltage (1.5v) and the frequency (1333) in the BIOS but still getting crashes today - though this time System_Service_Exception (not memory like the others) while trying to start Media Center.

If it helps here's a bit more background to the problem. I have had the system running OK for six months from build. I had had no need to test the ram and didn't bother with stability tests at that stage. I am not a gamer and use my machine more for video and graphics work. One thing I did notice from the start was the couple of games I do have on (Call of Duty and Fallout3) would give occasional freezes. I put it down to my now rather old hot GPU which I would get around to replacing in due course.

Now the real problems started recently when I got round to replacing the stock cooler with a Titan Fenrir. Trouble with this is it overhangs Dimm1 but in moving around the memory sticks I seem to have opened a real can of worms. I could only get it to boot from one of the sticks. This stick passed memtest but would crash out of prime95 and games would freeze within a couple of minutes.

Now, the retailers here in the UK told me to send back board, cpu and RAM. They tested all 3 but they only replaced the memory and as you can see from my first post the memory related problems have continued.

Is it possible that something about the CPU/Board that is damaging the RAM? If a stick is failing memtest (it failed another test too called Windiag) is that definitive? It is bad for sure or board/cpu misreporting? Am I right in thinking memtest86 does cannot distinguish faulty RAM from faulty memory controller? Is there a test I can do to check if the CPU alone is faulty?

I don't know if this means anything to you guys but when I ran the prime95 (Blend) recently with both sticks in it failed straight away on 2 cores but went on running on the other 2. When I try to run it with the one "good" stick it crashes completely in a few seconds.

One of my other frustrations is I don't know anyone else with am3 board or memory so swap things around.

Maybe I can just insist that they replace board, cpu and second lot of RAM? But they have tested the 3 together and say there is no fault. I have tested another PSU of 650w but problems are the same so there really is not much I can think to do now.

Any help at all on what I could try is much appreciated.

Oh, and a final odd thing: after I had entered all the timings etc by hand, the CPU temperature dropped by 5 degrees! From idle at 29 down to 24.

i'll give that ago

Also what about speed spectrum?
Ganged/Unganged?
post #6575 of 9641
some beginner overclock help please?
so here's where i'm at
i turned up multiplier 19.5, 3.9gh totally stable
cpu core at 54c at end of test
in bios i only loaded optimized defaults, turned off amd cool n quiet and spread spectrum
and changed multiplier to 19.5
as soon as i up multiplier to 20 and run intel burn test
i get bsod with uncorrectable hardware error
any suggestions on what i should change first
my timings on my ram on wrong their at 9-4-9-24
and they should be at 7-9-7-24
and the voltage on my ram is slighty lower then recommended

well I hate to say it but the thing I would change would be your heatsink. Because you are getting up to the point where temps are more of an issue then voltage.

I'm not exactly sure if very large posts are against the forum rules, so I guess I'll ask first. Am I allowed to submit a list of all my hardware specs in order to not leave anything out that might lead to a simple fix to my hardware issue? And when I say all, I mean everything pretty much that is in my system except for maybe the casing, which since that's the only exception, I might as well include anyways... that is if it's not not allowed...

I have seen many very long HUGE posts so... One thing you might do tho is go into user cp and add your system. It will be in the left side "menu" and will say "add system" That will alleviate some of the things that you would need to post.

I'm pretty sure if it's relevant to the individual thread there should be no problem. I've seen some pretty large posts on this site.

ok, this seems like a good idea, didn't know that that existed

::Oh, I always though the specs at the bottom of each members posts was their well html coded sigs, lol, didn't know that that automatically set it... It's nice
