It's a bad memory slot. I tried each stick invidually, and the system won't even POST with a stick in slot 1 by itself. Every other slot posts fine. If I install 4 gigs in 3 and 5, it shows 4 gigs usable. 1 and 3, 2 gigs usable.
Guess you'll have to start the RMA process. Be warned, as soon as you initiate an RMA, EVGA will ask you to check the condition of your socket pins (discoloration or physical damage). If you have spare time, I'd check that as soon as you can so you have the information ready for them when they ask for it.

Your symptoms are synonymous with mine when I had thought I had a bad memory slot, but ended up having too much pressure on the socket. I know I've mentioned it a million times before, but I can't help but think about it when I see someone experience the same issues as me running a Venomous-X

I'll try to re-seat the cpu tomorrow. I can't tonight. No zip ties to re-mount the fans onto the Ven-X with. We have small zip ties that work beautifully at work that I use, and can't seem to find anywhere else.
In progress.

Hmmmm I sent my board in to EVGA and they got it yesterday and they are already sending it back... But they never sent me an email or updated the ticket with any info on what happened. What's the deal? Are they always like that?
post #2304 of 2630
If it's a fast turn-around like that, maybe you can wish for the best and hope they just sent you a new one!

Maybe... But they didn't even say anything in the ticket like "Ok we tested it and your issues seem to be valid blah blah blah we are sending you an X58 4 Way Classi"

hahahahahahaha.

I read that 1.4 QPI is safe, and also that increasing VTT helps. I have VTT set to +250mv but have no clue and can't find what is recommended, safe, or what it even does? Any input would be appreciated.

If it matters the kit is 6-7-6-18 1600mhz gskill tridents.
http://www.evga.com/forumsarchive/tm...09&mpage=1&key

Personally i would lower the memory clock a little bit.

VTT controls the IMC (memory controller) here is a very important quote on that from this link
VTT=Voltage Termination

Quote:
CPU VTT Voltage (default: 1.1V (+0mV in BIOS) Intel's max 1.35 (+250mV)
What it does:

VTT connects the cores with the memory. Raising VTT helps keep a system stable at higher QPI rate. Since QPI is calculated from bclk: the higher the bclk the more VTT voltage you will need. VTT is also called "QPI/DRAM Core" on other motherboards,


Prevent CPU damage: VTT voltage must be within 0.5V of VDimm. Vdimm can fluctuate by as much as 0.05V from settings so you may want VTT within 0.45V of VDimm for that extra margin of safety. Example: if Vdimm is 1.65V, then VTT must be at least 1.20V.

When to raise CPU VTT Voltage:
BSOD 124 "general hardware failure"
LinX errors happen only after 10 min or more
LinX hangs but does not BSOD

LinX reboots without BSOD
You know CPU VTT Voltage is too high when:
Most users try and stay below 1.45V (+350V) for 24/7 use without additional direct cooling.

The motherboard doesn't read the temp so you may need an IR thermometer to be sure you are not pushing VTT too far.

Hey guys.. I was looking at the X58 SLI LE and I noticed it is gone from EVGA's website.. is it about to be replaced? Also, how big is the difference between the X58 SLI LE and the X58 SLI? LE is only x16 x8 right? Isn't that a few fps difference?

Yeah that's just about right. However it is odd that it's gone from their store. Even if it was out of stock it would still be listed.

I'm not having good luck with the RAM I just bought for my EVGA x58 tri-sli board. Can some of you guys that around reaching 4.0Ghz and above please recommend me some good RAM that is working with your board if you have the same board?

Thanks guys.

I have like 4 sets of OCZ Gold 6GB DDR3-1600..all systems run at 4.0Ghz. I have a set of Mushkin Blackline DDR3-1600...system running at 4.0Ghz. And I also have a set of Corsair Dominators DDR3-1600 (the big black ones) that I haven't installed yet, but there are plenty of people running this kit and at 4.0Ghz.

Edit: Damnit! Memory prices have dropped like $50 since I last purchased memory...
