Bad memory?


Recommended Posts

Hello all


I just finished building my new system and I've had a couple BSoD's and few other errors. So I decided to test my memory using memtest86+ v1.65. Left it running for almost 7 hours.


Here is a screenshot


I'm using Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PT. One 512 stick in Slot-A1 and Slot-B1 on my A8N-SLI motherboard.



1) Is the RAM bad?

2) Why is it detected by my motherboard with timings when it says in the description of the RAM that it should be 2.5 3.3.6?



System Specs:

MOBO - A8N-SLI (BIOS 1011 & 30°C)

CPU - AMD 64 4000+ San Diego (stock speeds & 28°C)

RAM - Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PT (auto detected mobo speed)

GPU - XFX GeForce 7800 GT (ForceWare version 81.89 non-WHQL & 38°C)

PSU - Ultra X-Finity (2nd Generation) 500 Watt /SLI/Dual 12v Rail(18A/20A)/SATA Ready

HS/F - Big Typhoon

CASE - Lian-Li PC-65B

3-3-3-8 are the SPD timings, you have to set them manually to 2-3-3-6. I'm assuming since you haven't done that you also need to manually change the voltage to the correct settings as well, which may have caused those errors.


CAS Latency (tCL): 2

RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3

Row Precharge (tRP): 3

Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6


Memory Voltage: 2.75 Volts

All other settings to defaults.
