I'm really depressed with the situation. Your humble answer will be appreciated.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi to everyone. Couple of days ago I was happy since I overclocked my Q6600 to 3.2Ghz @ 1.3 with this setup.
2GB RAM
550W Thermaltake
512MB 8600GT

I ran Intel Burn Test with ten runs and everything was fine no shutdowns, restarts or BSoD.

Then I started asking people if my system is okay to upgrade to a AMD 6950 they said everything is fine except the RAM and PSU.

So I recently purchase 2XGB Team Elite 800Mhz which means this is dual channel right?

When I went home with my girl, I just removed my old 2GB Kingston and installed 2X2GB Team Elite RAM. So take note everything was okay even the overclock was still there just added the RAM's and the ratio was normally set to 1.1 which gave me 800 since before.

But I remembered I used a 32bit system which will only detect 3GB of RAM. So after when my girl went home I installed a 64bit everything was fine but I didn't try running Intel Burn Test. When I ran it, it suddenly froze like the whole system. I made hard shutdown then I went into BIOS which means it's not stable maybe cos of the new added RAM's so I left the core voltage since that was fine since before running smoothly. I just increased the memory voltage to high performance since the BIOS stated "Gray - Default, White - High Performance and Red - Not safe or unstable" I picked the white instead of auto settings since everything before was on auto except the ratio and CPU core volts. When I booted into Windows it was acting weird taskbar icons near the clock where disappearing. Then I didn't touch the PC and I got this BSoD showing "Memory Management" I'm 100% which it meant was the RAM's. I tried my best to find a solution. I tried OC'ing down to 3.0Ghz then the RAM 666 instead of 800 then the volt core was like stock but not auto. On grey settings since its below 1.3, I used 1.3 for 3.2Ghz. Now I removed one stick of RAM and the system is running fine but I left everything in the BIOS stock just to be sure it wont restart. One last thing when I had the 2X2GB sticks installed, in the BIOS it should show "DDR2 800 (Dual Channel) right? cos before it showed "DDR2 800 (Single Channel)" and it still showed Single Channel even I had 4GB's. What should I do? After getting the 4GB RAM I made the north bridge on high performance even the memory voltage since before it was all on auto when I ran my 3.2Ghz stable with 2GB RAM before.

Edit:
One more thing or is it my power supply? People always tell me use a good true rated PSU before overclocking cos bad PSU's will give dirty current. I also checked some voltages like the 12v and the 3.3v it wasn't exactly on those numbers its a little below does it mean it might be the PSU wearing off? I've been using it a long time ago maybe 3years now so should I get a good PSU since these days the PSU's are better than way back then.

+1. Single out the ram and test its stability.

I didn't mean it in anyway. And I can't start benchmarking without knowing what is the problem causing it. Its already obvious that I can make it stable as possible with both memory sticks in the motherboard.

Thank you.

do you have them in the proper slots for dual channel?
did you check the timings?
are they correct?
did you manually set them?

I think its on auto that's why. But the problem is I don't know how to set them up. Should I set them the way I see it on the sticker of the RAM's? I have no knowledge in RAM's.

yes the timings in the bios should match the numbers on the RAM sticks...
if not you will have to manually set it
google search ram timings... i could give you the answer but it's much more rewarding to discover it yourself... it will seem a little confusing at first... if your really don't want to learn about it... just dig up your manual for your MB and it will tell you how to do it..

The guy above was suggesting you use memtest86+ to test your RAM not benchmark.
Memtest first to see if it is definitely a RAM problem, then try each stick individually to see which is the "bad" stick.

Cause if his gf wasn't involved he woulda gotten better quality ram. Imma stick my issue on bad install, but most likely ram.
