Help to make Corsair 4GB 100% Stable

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, I need help on making this ram 100% stable on my Asus P5E3 Deluxe wifi: CM3X2G1600C9DHX 2x2GB
They are stable(no BSOD's) but the only issue is that my pc completely freezes after 20 mins during the Prime95 Blend Test and quite quickly on a super-pi 32M test. I know that it is not the CPU as i previously had it overclocked even higher. Now i have a 1:2 ratio

Current Settings:

FSB Freq: 400
DRAM Freq: 1601MHz
NB voltage: 1.55
DRAM voltage: 1.80
Timings: 9-9-9-24
Command Rate: 2T

How can make it pass the blend test and 32M test?
Any help is appreciated
Thanks

Anyone have any suggestions?
I think that this motherboards memory controller is weak, but what do you think?
Thanks

Read this thread, it's the exact same issue your having.

After reading the thread I would suggest:

1600 @ 9-9-9-27 1.8v

Or

1333 @ 7-7-7-20 1.7v

I tried both of the settings you gave me, and i got random bsods and restarts and still freezing on the 32M test.
So i also tried loading setup defaults in bios, everything set to AUTO, but i still sometimes get bsods.
So i just dont know what to do anymore

are you getting bsod's even when your ram and cpu arent overclocked?

also what is your qpi frequency at? use cpuz to check

I managed to get it stable, but with nothing overclocked with these settings:
FSB Frequency: 333
DRAM Frequency: DDR3-1066
DRAM Command Rate: 2N
DRAM Timing: AUTO
DRAM Voltage: 1.80
NB Voltage: 1.55

Its a s775 so QPI frequency does not apply to it i think
Check the attacthed pics to see what cpu-z is telling
So whats my next step to try reach 1600MHz?
Thanks

Now i tried doing memtest, tested each module seperately, no errors
Even with 1 module inside, as soon as i go to 1600 i get bsods.
The only stable setting is 1066 dual channel mode
So whats my problem? MB?
