RAM problems?


Recommended Posts

I was running Memtest86 and i had over 1900 errors before i quit the test.

This seems like it is a little extream for ram failure. I can still use the system but it locks and crashes randomly.


My motherboard is an intel 875p

CPU p4 3.0Ghz

RAM is XMS3200 platinum matched pair.


what do u think?

With your Intel D875PBZ MB and our TwinX1024-3200; please set the following setting, but before making the necessary changes please make sure that you have the latest BIOS installed on your MB.

SDRAM Frequency - 400


SDRAM tRASmin - 8




DDR Voltage 2.7 V

All other settings should be set to default settings!

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!

I changed the settings to what you specified except the voltage (it wasn’t an option) and it ran 3 passes with no errors.


I had never changed any of the CAS settings but they were different than you specified.


Last time I used Memtest86 3.1, this time I used Memtest86+ 1.40.


So it appears to not be the ram. Could you point me in the right direction or suggest another utility? Must be either motherboard or CPU that’s causing the instability.


FYI- this system has never been over clocked.
