Crucial Ballistix help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I got these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148351

but the ram crashes when I am Windows for 3-4 minutes.

I tried to set the timings and voltage manually for both 1333 and 1600 settings but neither work correctly

Are there any settings I am forgetting about, is DDR3-1600 alot different than how it was using DDR2-1066?

RMA, especially if everything works with other RAM. If other RAM has the same problem it could be the IMC or MB

Did you set the DRAM voltage to 1.65? I have had zero issues with my new Crucial ram. For me they were set it and forget it.

Are you certain that this is a ram crash? Was the system working before and you bought this ram to replace something else? And have you run Memtest on it?

I am also confused as to how you went from DDR2 1066 to DDR3 1600. New board?

I tried these exact settings based on what someone posted on a website and still crashes in Windows.



I don't think they are defective, I just need the right setting

Try setting the timings to 9-9-9-27. If I where you I would try them in a different machine and see if they cause crashes there as well. I just don't see how you are certain that it is a RAM crash and not related to some other component. Also you didn't say if you tried running Memtest on them.

May be simply DOA... it happens
By the way [this one's slightly on the off topic side] I don't recommend you continue running an unlocked CPU on that mobo... erring on the dangerous side there with MSI craptastic VRM quality, 3+1 phase, 125W+ processor, no air to MOSFET area (plain heatsink doesn't help).....

I only have it overclocked 200MHZ, I dont plan on taking the B60 to 4GHZ until I get a 990FX board in a few months. Trust me I take heed to what you say about the MSI and phase 3+1, thats why I am only running a slight overclock.

also this board was free from Microcenter so its not a big loss if anything happens.

I see. A lot of people do it with Microcenter boards. However, do keep in mind that you're risking your power supply as well. I really don't recommend any overclocking on such board, many have blown at stock on 125W processors, especially 3+1 boards, MSI or not. I don't consider any 3+1 125W ready. Neither does Gigabyte luckily, a nominally better board manufacturer who smartly omits 125W support from their 3+1 boards.

Have you tried running the system as a dual core and see if the crashes continue? Those crashes may be related to the unlocked CPU and the OC.

I am just trying to run the Ballistix at 1333 for now at 1.5 instead of 1600 and 1.65 so it should be stable.
