ThreeFlow Posted August 23, 2006 Posted August 23, 2006 Hi folks, I would really appreciate a bit of help with this issue I am having. Just bought some new ram, OCZ5002048EBPE-K 2x1GB which uses Infineon CE-6 chips rated at DDR500. I've searched the forums and found one thread where someone was having problems getting this ram stable, people suggested running the memory on a divider instead of 1:1 so I am now doing that, and it doesn't affect the situation I'm experiencing. Since this RAM has been installed into my system, at any period of time (seems to be purely random..... at first I thought it was only when the CPU or memory was loaded with work but now I've had it happen right in front of me when the computer was idle...) it will freeze up and 5 seconds later the monitor turns black (with the power button led switching from green to flashing orange indicating it is in standby mode.... same mode as when the PC itself is shut off but the monitor is not). When this happens, the computer itself is still on, but its just a black screen so am forced to reboot. I have even tried underclocking this memory from its stock speed and it doesn't seem to help. THe thread where the other guy had a problem with stability is here: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...t=infineon+ce-6 I've read his settings on when he managed to get it stable, tried copying them, then tweaking them a bit (he's using a different motherboard than I am though so....) but I still can't figure out this problem. Can anyone offer any guidance? Thanks in advance, -Threeflow Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
