Memtest 7 Question

Recommended Posts

My rig is a venice 3200, dfi 4 ultra d mobo, 3200 mushkin utt blue line brain powered pcb 512X2,ocz powerstream 520 psu, powercolor x800 XL. Recently I flashed to 414-2 bios with mem in the orange slots. The memory could not do anything past 230 mhz and I would get tons of errors at 250 with 2 2 2 5 timings. Then I read the thread about how UTT does better in the yellow slots. I switched it out and now the mem can do 250 3.3 volts 2 2 2 5 210 passes under memtest 5. However, I keep getting an error only in test 7. Even running the ram at lower mhz gives me this error. The only way I dont get it is under stock settings for ram...Does any1 know how I can get around this error?

Memtest errors are a bad sign since it is much more forgiving than Windows about memory errors. How soon does the first error appear in test #7? If you loop test #8 for 8 hours, do you get any errors? Maybe posting all your DRAM and voltage settings would help others diagnose your issue.

ok finnaly got this .'n work'n (i think, need to run more test now)

 

ok try these things i don't know which ones fixed it.....

 

1. make sure you multiplyer is not on auto.. for some stupid reason i thought auto was 10 (i'm such a nob :) )

 

2. up your vcorea little ... don't know what you have it at but i uped mine (don't know if that makes a difference in memtest)

 

3. up chipset voltage .... i put mine to 1.6

 

4. up LDT volate ... i put mine at 1.5

 

5. try 4x or even 3x LDT ..... mine was at 4 always so i don't this this was it

 

6. disable bank dram bank interleave utt/bh5s don't like it

 

7. and try 2-2-2-7 not 2-2-2-5

 

i don't know know what it was but last night i got it works at 230 at 2-2-2-7

no stupid # 7 error after 3 hours or so. will try more tests today :)

 

hope this helps... if not i'll post all my bios sett'n don't know if it will help you tho.... i'll be back later more tests to run :( need to get these bad boys 240-250 for now

awesome ninja! Plz let me know all your bios settings if you can! And BTW your ram can do more than 230. When I had my sticks in the orange slots I couldnt get past 230 just like you. Then I flashed to BIOS version 414-2 and now Im at 250 on memory no errors in test 5 with 210 passes. BTW what speed is your CPU at and vcore, vdimm voltages?

lol crap now you tell me this... i've been try'n to get past 230 for hours now :nod:

the good new is no more stupid number 7 error the bad new is 4000 error in test five. i will try bios 414-2 (do i have to move the ram to yelllow slots)

 

what voltage did you use to get 250. do you think i can get 240 with 3.2 volts... i'm scared to use the 5v rail (or is it 4v rail :) whatever its called )

 

will this is my bios sett'n for 230... i tried with 240 no more 7 errors but stupid 5 error like i said hope it helpz you

 

gb = 230/x4/16 16/x10/100/disable/1.450/1.325/above vid 113/1.50/1.60/3.00/enabled/auto/pin strap/disabled/enabled/enabled/enabled/enabled

 

dram = 200(1:01)/enable/2/2/7/2/12/14/03/03/01/02/3072/auto/disabled/auto/0/level2/level 1/8ns/5ns/256/disable/8x/04/disable(8bursts)

 

 

theres still some tweek'n to do but i don't realy care for 230 i want 240-250 but hope it helps

 

edith: have you tried 414-3 bios i heard its better...i'm go'n to try it :)

Good job ninja!!! Bank interleave was the problem. After I disabled that the error went away. Also, you dont need to use the 5V line. There is a 3.3 line trick. Put your big jumper back to where it was stock but instead put it down one row. And then in the top right hand corner put a jumper going across from left to right. If you dont understand how to do it Ill try to find the picture but Ill need your email to send it to you. With this trick you can use the 3.3 line up to 4.0. And yes try to flash to bios 414-2 or the newer one and put your mem in yellow slots, it helped me reach 250.
