I had another lockup.

I'm setting everything back to defaults and starting over.

Still having the same problems here. I did find that the RAM seems to be perfectly stable at 1333Mhz. I am running Super PI to 32M Calculations perfectly fine which was impossible at 1600Mhz (instant lockups and freezes depending on my voltage settings).

Memtest ran for 10hrs and 15 passes with no errors, Linx finished a full 20 passes, its like this RAM either will not run at 1600Mhz or I am clearly missing something.

Stable (so far)
Manual settings:
1333Mhz
8-8-8-24, tRFC 88, CR 1T
CPU VTT +200mV
DIMM 1.65v
QPI PLL VCore 1.35v

I've seen where people have had it running at 1600Mhz. And it's tested/certified by Corsair at those speeds.

I'm staring to wonder if it has to do with the CPU not being clocked higher. I'm grasping at straws here really.

I had also wondered about running at 1333Mhz, but hadn't gotten around to trying it out.
I've post a similar thread on the MoBo manufacturer's forum...I'll PM the link to you.

do you have your DIMM voltage set to exactly 1.65V or do you have it set at 1.600V so it actually runs at 1.65v?

yep, after many frustrating hours and reboots i decided to try slow and move my way up. i'm now currently sitting stable at 8-8-8-24 @ 1333mhz for 24 hrs. the moment i bump it up to 1600 no matter the timings, lockup.

i've heard 100s of stories of people being able to run these at spec with no fuss at all right out of the box and i scratch my head.

heavily thinking about rmaing these damn things because i've all but given up on trying to run them at 1600.

I'd be interested to hear if a new set, after RMA worked to SPEC.

Yeah, those settings are exactly how I have it set in BIOS and not actual voltages. I'm still curious to see what other suggestions RAM GUY has for us here.

*UPDATE*
How has the setup linuxrouter suggested worked out so far?

Frequency Control
CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) ( 133 )
CPU Uncore Frequency (Mhz) ( 24x )

Memory Feature
Memory Speed ( Standard ) <-- Standard disables XMP
Memory Control Setting ( Enabled )
Memory Frequency ( 2:12 )
Channel Interleave Setting ( 6 Way )
Rank Interleave Setting ( 4 Way )
Memory Low Gap ( Auto )
tCL Setting ( 8 )
tRCD Setting ( 8 )
tRP Setting ( 8 )
tRAS Setting ( 24 )
tRFC Setting ( 74 )
Command Rate ( 1T )

Voltage Control
CPU VTT Voltage ( +200 )
DIMM Voltage ( 1.65 )

Sorry, missed that you'd posted those below.

I cannot boot into windows with those settings. PC just froze


----------------------------------

got some settings in an older thread.

Going to try these:

Frequency Control
CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) ( 133 )
CPU Uncore Frequency (Mhz) ( 24x )

Memory Feature
Memory Speed ( Standard ) <-- Standard disables XMP
Memory Control Setting ( Enabled )
Memory Frequency ( 2:12 )
Channel Interleave Setting ( 6 Way )
Rank Interleave Setting ( 4 Way )
Memory Low Gap ( Auto )
tCL Setting ( 8 )
tRCD Setting ( 8 )
tRP Setting ( 8 )
tRAS Setting ( 24 )
tRFC Setting ( 74 )
Command Rate ( 1T )

Voltage Control

I just joined these forums because I'm having the same exact problem!! I've spent the last two weeks swapping out motherboards, power supplies, even tried a different case thinking it was a grounding issue. Everything points back to this memory. If I run my system with anything other than the default "Standard" / automatic BIOS setup (which runs at 1066mhz) then my system reboots, randomly freezes, crashes, etc.

I know it is not a temperature problem because my cpu and NB never break 30C. Anyway, i'm using the EVGA x58 SLI LE motherboard and this memory absolutely sucks! I had a Corsair 750W power supply thinking it was providing insufficient power to my SLI setup, noooo... All of my tests and troubleshooting point right back to this crappy memory!

After all the money spent on RMA'ing equipment back to "The Egg" and time wasted on rebuilding my computer from scratch several times, the word lawsuit starts coming to mind (for false advertisement and lack of support)...

I feel sorry for everyone else who has had the same run-around that I've been dealing with. I know many of you have this same problem and are probably to lazy to register on these forums. I just want you to know, this boat we all are sitting in is alot bigger than people think!

Well, I have discovered a form of stability at 1600Mhz. I have been using SuperPI to gauge immediate stability on my machine. At 1600Mhz it will instantly restart my machine no matter what settings I have tried till now. I am running these new settings and finished a whole 32M calculations in SuperPi just now. But it is flimsy; sometimes it still restarts my machine. I tried adjusting the DIMM voltage up & down and that's a no go so far.

Settings:

Frequency Control

CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) ( 133 )
CPU Uncore Frequency (Mhz) ( 24x )

Memory Feature

Memory Speed ( Standard )
Memory Control Setting ( Enabled )
Memory Frequency ( 2:12 )
Channel Interleave Setting ( 6 Way )
Rank Interleave Setting ( 4 Way )
Memory Low Gap ( Auto )
tCL Setting ( 8 )
tRCD Setting ( 8 )
tRP Setting ( 8 )
tRAS Setting ( 19 )
tRFC Setting ( 59 )
Command Rate ( 1T )

Voltages (as shown in E-Leet)

DIMM Voltage ( 1.70 )
QPI PLL VCore ( 1.1 )
CPU PLL VCore ( 1.8 )
IOH VCore ( 1.1 )
CPU VTT ( 1.3 )
IOH/ICH I/O ( 1.5 )
ICH VCore (1.05 )

OR

Voltage Control in BIOS (in order as shown in BIOS)

CPU VCore ( 1.28125 )
CPU VTT ( +200mv ) 1.3v in E-Leet
CPU PLL VCore ( 1.8 )
DIMM Voltage ( 1.70 )
DIMM DQ Vref ( +0mv )
QPI PLL VCore ( 1.1 )
IOH VCore ( 1.1 )
IOH/ICH I/O ( 1.50 )
ICH VCore ( 1.050 )
PWM Freq ( 800khz )

This has allowed me to boot:
Only thing different is +250mV
