Bad stick?


Recommended Posts

Recently had issues with programs crashing, and suspected bad ram/HD sectors. Ran memtest 86+ from my Ultimate boot CD, and discovered errors on my second stick. By errors I mean over 192,000.


My settings are default, except that I've lowered the timings to the Corsair default (2.5-3-3-8), as the MSI board I have does not detect them properly.


Is there a setting that'll make these errors go away that I haven't changed? They've worked excellent for the last year and a bit, and I don't have issues with my other 3 sticks.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X 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.
