ghell Posted January 3, 2007 Share Posted January 3, 2007 I bought a whole new system at the start of august in parts. the motherboard is an ASUS P5N32SLI-SE Deluxe using a Core 2 Duo E6600 processor and SilverStone 600W PFC PSU, and the sales receipt says the memory is TWIN2X20486400PRO but the actual modules say CM2X1024-6400C4PRO on each of them. Windows keeps throwing STOP errors, Fedora Core 6 keeps hanging and the memory only shows the top 3 green LEDs lit up, so I did a few Memtest86s from my Fedora DVD With both chips plugged in Memtest86 on 8 passes showed 13 errors all around 1030MB all on test 7 (random number sequence) on several separate passes. This image is a picture taken of the result: http://www.forsaken-mu.net/george/uploaded/memory%20errors.jpg With either chip plugged in on its own, after 8 passes each, no errors were found at all. I will leave the memory tests on overnight to make sure. I'm not overclocking and I have the ram modules plugged in to the slots of matching colour (DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 not DIMM_A2 or DIMM_B2). I don't know if thats right but memtest appears as dual channel when they are in that configuration. Could this be a problem with either/both of the memory modules or maybe with the motherboard? (I have had problems with SLI since I got that motherboard too so I don't know if its faulty but unfortunately there are no real tests for that AFAIK and an RMA just to see if a new one fixes it is a bit much) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
