Voltage is to be set between 1.85v and 1.9v. I have had to add 0.35v as DDR standard is 1.5v its reading 1.88v with the 0.35v increase

Dunno what happend to the test but it stopped at 3hr 47mins with over 6 million errors. This to me seems extremly bad?

 

If you're at manufacturer specs (timings, speed, voltage), and it gives you that many errors...I would RMA the memory.

 

You can also call OCZ tech support and see if they have any suggestions, they might be able to start the RMA process that way, as well.

If you can go to the Postoffice and send it USPS insured it's a lot cheaper than fedex or ups

Is this a typo, or is your CPU really at 1.875v?

Hello,

 

What power supply do you have? (Brand/model/wattage).

 

Also try using just one memory module at a time.

My Q9300 is 1.225v at stock. Perhaps worth setting it to that manually, if auto is thinking it should be 1.1875...
