Memtest

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok so i have this ram for about a month now and since i have installed i have been getting random BSODS etc... so this morning i finnaly tried memtest on my Corsair 4GB XMS3. It says it has 4 errors within about a second of the test. Is there anyway i can fix these errors or get rid of them. i lost my receipt so i can't get them replaced.

If memory is bad there is nothing you can do about it.

You'll have to RMA.
Was everything set at rated? i.e. 1600 CL9 1.65V I assume

Everything was set at stock. one note though this ram is actually not support by the mobo apparently. Its supports the 2gb and 8gb version, will that make much of a difference. i have also just got it to stop giving me bsods by increasing the dram voltage to 1.55V instead of 1.5

Well just so you know, memory settings don't always get set correctly, so what you think are stock settings are actually incorrect.

That probably works okay, but you are still running underclocked to 1333 and at the SPD generic settings; you should work on getting the RAM to 1600 CL9 rated (or 1333 with lowered timings of around CL7) with 1.55-1.75V now.

As you guys can tell i am a dud. I'm only 15. is 1.75V safe i also have a Kingston Stick running aswell, which is 2gb. It has no heat spreaders.

So am I wink.gif
1.75 is a rated voltage, as long as it is a rated voltage you are safe and covered by warranty as long as you are not above it.

Running the Kingston stick with everything is probably ruining everything. Mixing generic/no heatspreaders RAM with performance RAM will ALWAYS have bad results. Not to mention it destroy dual channel for you which also takes a big whop of your performance with it.

okay i guess i will pull out the Kingston ram them. Also in my BIOS there is no option to increase the mhz of the ram slowly like by 5 likes the FSB. i don't want to overclock the cpu. I can only choose Dram Speed: 1087,1333,1600 or 2000. Ill go 1.75 and try and get 7,7,7,23. Im on 8,8,8,23 stock was 9,9,9,24.
