maka_RTH Posted July 12, 2006 Posted July 12, 2006 so, i'm trying to get my ram to pass memtest, and i'm close, but i need some suggestions on getting it there. i just ran memtest for almost 16 hours(40 passes), and it failed test #8 five times, the first time on pass 20, prolly about 7~8 hours into it, and 4 more times over the next 20 passes which is when i got home and checked it. my current bios settings for my ram are: Mhz - 1:1 CPC - enable Cas (Tcl) - 2.5 (<--- i would like to keep this at 2.5 if possible, i've had it stable at 3 already, but want more out of it :D) Trcd - 3 Tras - 8 Trp - 3 Trc - 11 Trfc - 14 Trrd - 2 Twr - 2 Twtr -2 Trwt -2 Tref - 3120 (<--- i haven't tried any others as this has seemed quite stable for many) Odd divisor - disable Dram Bank Interleave - enabled (Most of the following settings are on the default values as when i tried tweaking them following the memory guide, it was more unstable) DQS Skew Control - Auto DQS Skew Value - 0 Dram Drive Strength - Auto Dram Data Drive Strength - Auto Max Async Latency - Auto Dram Response Time - Normal Read Preamble Time - Auto IdleCycle Limit - 256 Cycles Dynamic Counter - Disable R/W Queue Bypass - 16x Bypass Max - Auto 32 Byte Granularity - Disable(4 bursts) as per my sig, FSB is at 280mhz, LDT multi is 3x, cpu multi at 7x to get just ram (cpu has been tested stable at this FSB x10). the current voltage to my ram is set to 3.0v, and bios reports it as 3.08v. i'm gonna pull out the DMM later to test all the rails and everything to see how accurate the bios readings are. also noted in my sig, i have the crucial ballistix pc4000, 2x 512MB, with the micron 5B-G chips. i currently have them in the yellow slots, and i think i'm gonna try moving them to the orange slots before i try anything else, when i have it all out checking the rails. any other suggestions? should i up the voltage to 3.1v? should i leave them in the yellow slots? any other suggestions as far as my timings and whatnot? also, my temps run fairly cool (except chipset, still need to get the evercool fan), cpu at ~27 idle, ~40 load, PWMIC at ~35 idle, ~38 load, and chipset roughly ~45 idle, ~47 load. i have a fan blowing directly on my ram as this greatly improved temps(they used to be hot to the touch, now they're cool to the touch), which resulted in greater stability. anyways, yeah, this has been long, but after reading a ton on here, i decided i wanted to join and add to the community Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
