Asus P5N32 SLI SE Deluxe and Corsair Twin2X1024A-6400 BSOD

Hi,

 

I have been having problems with the stability of my system since I upgraded the motherboard, cpu and ram.

 

My system is as follows:

 

Asus P5N 32 SLI SE Deluxe

Core 2 Duo 6600

1Gb Corsair RAM (Twin2X1024A-6400) 2 x 512Mb

 

I have been consistently getting BSOD and when the computer restarts and logs back into windows I send the report to microsoft and 80% of the time reports that the problem is with the RAM. It then continues to advise me in running the MS Memory Test program, which is an iso bootable program, yet finds no errors with the RAM. I have also tried MemTest and it finds nothing either.

 

I am really stumped, people have had the same setup and don't have any problems. I even upgraded my PSU and it hasn't made any difference.

 

Is is my RAM. Can anyone think of the cause?

 

I could understand it if the memory tests reported a fault with the ram but they haven't.

 

I am thankful for any help you can give me.

 

Thanks

 

Mark :D:

God, now your asking me.

 

Everything is set to auto, however, I just set my RAM to manual and set it to 5-5-5-15-T2., still running 800 Mhz Clock with 1066 FSB. The cpu will be just auto - bios defaults. I am also running the beta bios, tried all the ones before.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

I just quickly tested the using memtest. It came up with 3600 odd error before 50% was complete. I am not too sure on what I am looking for with regards to the type of errors, but I can carry this out in more depth tomorrow if you could possible let me know what I should be looking out for.

 

I just hope its a case of getting the RAM replaced to solve the problem.

 

thanks again,

 

Mark

Ramguy, I was just wondering. When I receive the new RAM modules tomorrow (twin2x1024a-6400) is there any reason for them not to work from previous experience if they are error free. Or are there reported incompatibilities with the RAM and the p5n... motherboard?

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

OK Let me know when you get the new modules!

 

Hi Ram Guy, I have just received the new modules. Only had them in the system 5 mins, so a little early to say. So any help etc you can provide would be appreciated.

 

Is there any way I can check to see if the modules are ok etc?

 

Thanks

Yes Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and then test the module/modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure. In addition, with this MB you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

Thanks Ram Guy. I have been running my machine most of the day and so far no errors. I am presumming the system and RAM are fine. I don't think I will test the RAM as I feel there is no need to. I will do it at a later date when the system is idle.

 

I have just run cpuz to get the info for my system and it reported pretty funky timings. I am going to set them manually but could you please tell me what to set them to.

 

I know it is 5-5-5-15 and 1.9 volts, but I don't know if it is T1 or T2.

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

 

PS, so the problem with the BSOD was faulty RAM.... touch wood, so far so good :)

Command Rate should be 2T with this platform!

 

Hi Ram Guy,

 

I just went into my bios to change RAM settings manually, however, there seems to be an extra setting. The following is what I found:

 

CAS Latency: ?

tRCD: ?

tRP: ?

tRAS: ?

tRC: ?

Address Mode: ? (To be set to T2)

 

I know what the address mode should be set to but not the other 5 options. Could you tell me the settings specifically for the values above. I know the settings are 5-5-5-15 but there seems to be an extra option.

 

Thanks once again, your help has been much appreciated.

 

Mark
