omz Posted April 21, 2006 Posted April 21, 2006 hey all, this is my 2nd RMA from crucial for these 1gig ballistix kits (i know i know i should have gottent he problem by now) anyways, all was running smooth - left it at stock for a week or 2 then moved on to some slow OCing i could get it to run 250mhz at 2.5-2-2 w/ 2.8v...well, it passed memtest at 255 so i decided to up it there but a few hours after, i began playing CS 1.6 and it crashed on me i decided to lower it b ack to 250 but no boot...went back to 200, still no boot...got kidna scary but i thought my timings were maybe a bit tight and the previous trials were pure luck...dropped back to stock timings and "Auto" for my DRAM options and still no boot well i decided to really loosen up the timings and i was finally able to get into the windows logon screen at 3-3-3 w/ 2.7v but anything tighter than that doesn't work this is the third kit i have had and they are all starting to fail faster and faster, first one took a few months, 2nd one took about 1.5 months and now this one is over in 2 weeks! but the odd thing is - they ALL have worked at 2-2-2 w/ auto voltage on my old s478 intel p4 rig (2.8E + ASUS p4p800) could it be something else causing the problem? what do you guys recommend? really need ur guys' help as its been a huge PITA and really been ticking me off :mad: Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
