Could it be the Motherboards fault?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've made a few threads about this in the memory section, but I'd like to know if this could be the motherboards fault.

Recently I haven't been able to run prime95, on stock settings for my ram, without getting fatal errors on prime or BSOD's. My ram is suppose to run at 1600Mhz with timings 7-7-7-20, however it's not stable (most of the time prime95 on blend fails within a min). If I down clock the ram to 1333 or under everything is stable, but anything above 1333 seems to be unstable. Now I'm doing memtest86 for each stick, but I'd like to know could it be that something is wrong with the motherboard if all the ram passes? In the summer I could overclock the ram to 1866Mhz with the same timings and run it stable on prime95 for over ten hours. Could it be that one of the DIMM slots is malfunctioning? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I'm using the red slots, so the second set, but I've always had it that way ( [][l][][l][][l] <--- what it looks like

Motherboard - Asus Extreme 3 Rampage
Memory - Corsair Dominator 3x2Gb, 1600 7-7-7-20
PSU - antec 1200

It's either your RAM or your CPU overclock. Set your CPU to stock and continue testing with P95 and Memtest86+, plus I recommend stressing all your RAM using LinX.

I do have everything on stock, and so far the I'm passing memtest (2/3 sticks). The only thing that fails is prime95 blend test
