System is failing to boot on stock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So... I am attempting to just get the system to boot at stock with manual stock values (IE: CPU set to 200 x 16 = 3.2 GHz, NB Freq. = 2000, HT Link = 2000, etc.) and it boots, but then when I run any stress test program, it freezes. Temperatures aren't too high, voltages shouldn't be set too high or low, DRAM is the only thing set to a manual custom voltage, only because my RAM requires it to be at that setting to run at it's default timings and speed.

Whenever I use IBT, the whole system freezes. If I use Memtest86+ the RAM passes fine with no errors. If I use LinX (outdated) it passes, but, it takes 30 minutes or more to complete one pass through. This seems to only happen when the system is using all available RAM. So.. I am lost, I was attempting to re-do my overclock, the correct way this time, instead of working backwards, or plugging in random numbers, but, unless something is physically wrong with a chip or something.

Any ideas? Everything should be stable, everything works if all the voltages and frequency settings are set to Auto. BIOS Rev. is 1102, and everything else is in my sig rig.

If it were me, i would try to test the dimm slots individually. You said you ran memtest, but it may be a mobo issue.. Id start swapping mobo connections to i.e. sata, pci's..

may not even be close, but when i have problems, on bios defaults, i try to narrow it to hardware related..

Yeah, on some motherboards certain DIMM slots may be more optimized for RAM overclocking or stability on ASUS boards. If the system freezes on IBT and takes too long on LinX (IBT + LinX = basically the same) but memtest passes fine, the issue is probably not the RAM. Have a look at your CPU voltage, CPU-NB voltage/frequency. Raise some things and see if it helps; start with the CPU-NB voltage (I needed to raise it a few ways above stock for stability) and the NB voltage (apparently one notch up has helped people achieve total system stability, even on this board).
