enzo Posted November 9, 2004 Share Posted November 9, 2004 RAM Guy, Help me PLEASEEEEEEE! :[pouts: I am trying to figure out the cause of my instability problems. I have: MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum Ultra MB AMD 3500+ Retail CPU WD 200GB SATA HDDs ANTEC NeoPower 480W PSU eVGA 6800 GT 256 (dedicated 12V rail) Twinx1024-3200XLPT Windows XP SP2 Latest Forceware and Nforce drivers (have even tried latest betas) Bios set to 2-2-2-5 (1T) 2.75V, no O/C. I get intermitent errors from XP with some BSoD (indicating memory problem by MS Technet). Doom 3 will start and run, but will always crash straight to desktop within a few minutes. I have run memtest86 and get errors consistently in test 6 and 10. Errors occur in different addresses each time, but I've rerun the test many (20+) times. No errors in any other test. I will try to run the test on each module individually this evening. I have run test 6 at 2-3-3-5. No errors after 4 passes, however, Doom 3 still crashes and intermitent errors. I'm worried that the slower timings are where this memory is happy, and that my XP and Doom 3 installs are corrupt. But wouldn't that mean Doom 3 would crash in the same place each time. This memory is supposed to be rated for 2-2-2-5, so even if it runs at less aggressive timings I will be disappointed. Thoughts, comments, suggestions? I'd like to RMA this with Newegg within my 30 day window, which is almost up, since they will pseudo-cross ship new RAM to me. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
