MemTest86 errors.


Recommended Posts

I thought I would run Memtest86 first before I started to change any settings. I ran Memtest86 with just one stick at a time. The first stick did just fine but stick two error out just under 7 minutes I ran the sticks in the DDR slot 2. I ran both sticks at the same time and MemTest86 errored ou in under two minutes. The two sticks of memory are in DDR 2 and DDR 4

 

What might this mean and could it be any settings? I have not change anything in the bios as far as the memory or the CPU.

 

Thanks.

This brings back bad memories. :(

 

I also memtested both sticks seperatly for 16+ hours and it was fine, then I tried it with both of em' in and I get 6 errors after 14 or so hours.

 

I just RMA'd as soon as I saw the errors...

Well, do you mind explaining how you figured it out, please? Now Confined, did you add the amount of voltage that your memory needed to assure stability? Still waiting for the process eh? When you think DFI, think patience.....

What RyderOCZ said.

 

 

 

It looks as if and I say this based on that I know little about configuring memory and CPUs, just not been my bag, but have been around computers since 92 and have built many, that I have read here in some Sticky that one should load Optimized Defaults in the bios and things will be fine for the memory and even seen it posted in threads here. Looks not to be right. I also see that when one post threads about the best settings for the bios one is told the same thing or with no replies.

 

I have pick up on some things here but in the most part things are so scattered about so much that when one starts to read about something one ends up with about 15 windows open and then one spends about the same amount of time trying to figure out what one was doing in the first place.

 

When you think DFI, think patience..... true, but at the same time I do keep eyes on some post around here with little to no replies. That's ok, as I see no rules that say any thread has to have a response.

BTW I will be doing a my review about this motherboard and site soon. Most good but not all.

I was running the memory at 300MHz 3.0-3-3-8 1T 3.1v and I got the errors so I tried a second time with the recommeded settings: 200MHz 3-3-3-8 1T 2.8v and I still got errors.

 

I tried it at all these settings and I still got errors so I assume RMAing was the right choice;

 

200MHz 2.0-2-2-5 1T 2.8v

205MHz 2.0-3-2-6 1T 2.8v

240MHz 2.5-3-3-7 1T 2.8v

295MHz 3.0-3-3-8 1T 2.8v

300MHz 3.0-3-3-8 1T 3.1v

 

Thats a week of testing...I was very patient. :)
