Memory Issue with EP45-UD3P?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I Just recently upgraded to 8GB of ram (4x2GB) of crucial Ballistix DDR2 800 ram for my system. I needed this cus i wanted to run both VMware (dedicated 3GB of ram) and still be able to use my computer normally. I have been only doing this for about a month now and i seem to be getting memory issues.

I run Memtest 86+ 4.1 and it comes up with red errors. so i remove one module and then re run the test to see if it still flags it. it comes up clean. so i decided to put the ram that i had pulled out back into the system and rerun the test and it comes up clean no errors????? so i go back to useing my system and within a day or two i have the same issues and again i repeat the memtest(failed) pull a different stick, run test (passes), put stick back in (passes).

WHAT is going on is it a ram issue, is it a chipset issue, is it dieing banks issues, is the memory controller not getting enough power?. Also i am no OCing right now my Q6600 is at stock 2.4GHz, and my ram is set to the proper timmings 4-4-4-12 @2.0v


FWIW the ram is Crusical Ballistix BL2KIT25664AL80A

My guess you need more MCH voltage.
I run 8GB with 1.20 MCH

I have tried this and still get errors in memory. with 4GB in (reguardless of which banks used and which of 2 of the 4 memory moduals used) i have no problems, But with 6GB and rarely get the issues and with 8GB it becomes almost a common thing

anyone else have a thought

I had a very similar setup, except with 1066 RAM. Got errors all the time. RMA'd my board, never fixed the issue. So I honestly just ignored them and never had a problem.
