GrandMasterJ Posted November 12, 2006 Share Posted November 12, 2006 I rebuilt my system "on the cheap" due to problems with the old system. Both are using the same memory modules of TWINX1024-DDR3200C2PT. Both used DFI motherboards. Testing in the old system overnight with Memtest revealed an error in test 6, that I seem unable to replicate in the new system. Running test 5 for 300 passes and test 8 for 100 passes never failed in the new system. So it's not the common DFI tight timings error that some people get. If I use the "probe" feature of Memtest86+, I get numerous errors at the same address that eventually end with a system lock-up. (That address being 0003FEF1C80-1022.0MB) Since this seems to be in the range of my memory, is this an actual error or an issue with using the probe feature? Ok, so the problem I'm having in the new system is as follows: I lock up. Not casual desktop lockups(that I've seen yet), but I lock-up in more CPU streneous tasks like playing Rise of Legends or running 3DMark06. Thing is, when running 3DMark, I DON'T lock up on any of the graphics test, but when I hit the CPU tests, everything comes to a hard lock. I tried switching slots on my board, and tried one memory module at a time. Believe it or not, as soon as I switched things around, the tests ran again and I was able to complete the 3DMark suite. Switching them back to the original configuration also let me complete 3DMark, but I STILL lock-up in Rise of Legends. The locks follow the same pattern each time: Everything on screen comes to a halt, however, I can still move my cursor and hear background music, followed by my cursor locking to one position on screen, finally the same sound is repeated in a loop. So, what I've tried so far: Ran Memtest86 v3.2 on old system 16 hours: Error in test 6. Ran Memtest86+ v1.65 continuous full tests for 24 hours: No errors. Ran Memtest86+ v1.65 test 5(300passes) and test 8(100 passes): No errors. Ran 3DMark06 with memory modules in slots 1&3: Pass graphics tests, lockup on CPU tests(2x). Ran 3DMark06 with one module, then other module, then both modules in slots 2&4, then both modules in slots 1&3: Pass all tests. Ran Prime95 Blended test 3 hours: No errors. Ran Rise of Legends with all configurations same as 3DMark06 tests: All lock ups, followed same pattern each time. Memtest86+ Test 4, 100 passes: No errors. Increase memory voltage to 2.75v: No change. What I plan to try: Prime95 24 hours torture test Custom test: 32MB FFTs max, all available memory in use.
