memtest errors, upped voltage now passes - OK?
I've installed a pair of CML4GX3M1A1600C9 DDR3 memory sticks in an Asrock Z77 Pro4 board (new build)
As per usual on new builds, I stick memtest in and run overnight. Uh-oh, got a raft of errors.
At this point all was default. Remembering some Corsair memory modules from years ago that would only work if I raised the memory voltage I tried the same (went from 1.5 to 1.6).
It seems to have worked - I'm on memtest pass 3 and no errors.
Is this semi-normal/OK or should I be returning these modules?
Is there anything else I should adjust to make sure everything works OK during 'turbo boost'? Does that even change memory speed? From the BIOS screens it looks like it might... I can probably figure this out by looking at all the BIOS settings, but I'd like to let memtest run for another few hours.
