Problems with 8500C5

Recommended Posts



I am a systems integrator. I personally purchased a set of 8500C5's. Installed into P5B Deluxe with E6300. I have issues with this dram. It performs correctly for a few days and then reboots with a blue-screen and no STOP designation of drivers, just Blue and Stop 0x00000.... The reboot will not restart. I have to remove the DRAM and reset the CMOS, then wait, re-install and set up again.


I have tested another set of (different company) Micron D9GCT's. This issue does NOT repeat. Use it for a few weeks, no problems. Reset the CMOS, install the 8500C5's and the issues repeat.


They do not fail on Memtest 86+ but Memtest is not the end-all in stability testing and I have been installing systems for 12 years.


Please give me a ticket to send these strips back.

What are the settings you have set for our modules and what is the part# of the other modules and at what setting are you running them?


When I set for 450FSB and 5-5-5-15 or 485FSB 5-6-6-18 this happens. If I wanted 800MHz DRAM I would have bought it.


The other modules are of another company. They are also 8500C5's and are D9GCT's. They run the above easily.

Yes that is normal, It will take 24-48 hours to get a reply excluding weekends and Holidays.


I'm still waiting for a response. I prefer to respond via e-mail and not phone. Why is there not a ticket sent via e-mail responder to show that the post was actually received?


This is a bit unprofessional isn't it?
