Hi RAM Guy,


My system is:

ASUS P4P800 Deluxe with latest BIOS

P4 2.6ghz HT


Sapphire RADEON 9600Pro


Here is the BIOS settings:

CPU Frequency: 200Mhz

DRAM Clock: 400Mhz

Memory voltage: 2.75 Volts

System performance: AUTO

AGP Voltage: 1.6 Volts



SDRAM CAS Latency: 2

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay: 3

SDRAM Row Precharge: 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay: 6T

SDRAM Burst Length: 8

Memory Acceleration Mode: Auto

USB Legacy Support: Disabled


Others settings are default.


The problem is:

With theses BIOS settings, when I run Memtest I've got lots of errors.

I also tried others memory slots.


If I remove one stick and run Memtest there is no errors.

If I put back the memory stick, remove the other one and run Memtest there is no errors.

If I put a stick on each channel (a stick on slot1 and the other on slot2) there is no error.


If I put the sticks on a single channel at 2.5-3-3-6 everything seems to be fine with Memtest and my OS.


Do you think I need to try something else?

Do you think my RAM is bad?


Thank you.

If memtest86 found no problems or errors on the memory modules by testing them one at a time, then I will suggest you to look at other hardware/peripherals installed on your system. I do not think the problem is coming from the memory modules! It's possible that is a chipset or power issue, try increasing the voltage at 2.85, and 1.7 volts for the AGP card.
