Getting Errors on Memtest


Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I have an Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard and Corsair TWIN2x2048-6400 RAM. I don't seem to be having any problems with anything, but when I ran memtest on my computer all night last night, I saw this morning that there were many errors on test #5 of memtest. The 4 tests before it all passed, it's just test #5. I have read RAM Guy's thread about users with errors on the Asus P5B boards, and have made sure to change the RAM voltage to 2.1V, and the Write to Precharge Delay to 15. USB Legacy support has also been disabled. I have even reset the motherboard to the default settings. Are these sticks bad, or is it safe to ignore those errors?

 

Thanks,

Derek

Hmm... When I changed the RAM voltage from 2.1V (what RAM Guy's post said to do) to Auto it got rid of the errors. I guess I'll keep it on Auto and do another test tonight and see if it finishes without errors.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.0 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.
