why can't I get this stable?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm trying to get my system stable but can't seem to get things right. I suspected one bad stick of ram because one passed memtest and the other instantly throws errors with same setup. When I run both sticks, I get one or two errors after a few hours. Prime95 fails instantly and SuperPi errors at 1M. 3dmark03 and 05 crap out after a few minutes too. The guys at mushkin don't seem to want to rma it so I may be screwed. Here is my setup with vdimm ~2.7-2.8. See sig for hardware.

 

Tcl: 2.0

Trcd: 2

Tras: 5-6

Trp: 2

Trc: 7

Trfc: 14

Trrd: 2

Twr: 3

Twtr: 2

Trwt: 3

Tref: 3120

How long have you had your memory modules? If your warranty has already expired then i would invest in another memory kit since you have already found the source of you problem. If you can find the same memory and match it then you can do it that way to save some money instead of buying a pair again. Good Luck!

Try testing one stick at a time with the FSB lowered. To determine your max memory speed per stick. Also try swapping the memory in the slots. Good luck.

He's not pissed, but there are rules for a reason, and rules are made to be followed.

 

I would try different RAM (borrow a friends or something) and test it that way. If that passes then you know for a fact your memory is to blame.

Understood. I guess I didn't think vid card manuf made that big of a difference and I used to have a 500W Ultra X-connect but it was garbage like everyone else said :)
