Gorgias-Flux Posted January 7, 2006 Posted January 7, 2006 Has anyone ever heard of this happening? I have OCZ Platinum El Rev 2 Sticks, 2 x 512. I had my system at the settings in my sig and it was running fine for over 3 months. I then reduced my clock speed to 2.4ghz in order to lower my volts for longevity. Well this week I have been playing WOW and crashing a lot. So I initially ran Prime95 and found my system to be unstable. I have been gradually lowering my OC and the crashing has been increasing. Today was the last straw. It wouldn't even boot. So... I started running diagnostics on my hardware. When I got to my RAM I found the culprit. I ran memtest and now my sticks will not pass test #5 unless I raised my DRAM voltage to 2.9 and I have the FSB at 240 or lower. I noticed when I have the sticks around the max they will take, they would error out at 95% pass or so. This was consistent. Does anyone have an explanation for this? I have a hunch that my sticks are going south, but I thought I would check here before I bother Ryder or Andy. Thanks everyone.
