Kiro-S Posted March 4, 2005 Share Posted March 4, 2005 Since i built my new system about a month ago it has been plagued by random lock ups and crashes. I suffered similar problems when i built my last system in June last year. The only part which was re-used in my new system from my old system was my 2 sticks of corsair ram. Back then they were caused by me pushing the ram too hard with too aggressive timings. I checked my timings were spot on with what they should be, the crucial difference being this time the memory is running at its rated PC3200 speed as opposed to the PC2700 speed it was running at in my old Athlon XP 2500+ system. Anyway I manually reset the timings to 3-3-3-7 and upped the voltage to 2.7v, however memtest86 is still reporting errors in test 5 accross both sticks in a multitude of places. The ram toture test in prime95 also fails. My current system is: Athlon 64 3500+ [Winchester] Sapphire x850 XT PE DFI Lanparty Ultra-D [Nforce 4] 2 x Corsair CMX512 - 3200CPT [XMS3202v2.2 0319091] Thermalright XP120 OCZ Powerstream 520w My current memory and bios settings are as follows: Timings: 3-3-3-7 RAM Speed: 200mhz Everything else set to auto Voltage: 2.7 FSB: 200mhz X'er: 11 My CPU is running nice and cool and the 3.3v, 5v and 12v rails are all running fine. As this memory has now failed in two systems and the method used to stop the failiure before hasnt helped i was hoping i would be good to go for a RMA. However i'm always open to suggestions :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
