Asus P5N-E SLI & CM2X1024-8500C5D problems


Recommended Posts

Desktop Specs:

Motherboard - ASUS P5N-E SLI

Memory - Corsair CM2x1024-8500C5D 1066mhz 5-5-5-15 (x2)

CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHZ


I had a set in there and ran memtest86+ and the test would freeze up. So the manufacturer of the computer sent out a replacement. Swapped them out and ran memtest to be sure.


After 4 hours there were 1,000+ errors, after 17hours there were 3,000+ at which point I just stopped it.


Looking at the compatibility chart for my mobo ( Here ), it seems that these arent even compatible with my mobo.


Would this be the reason behind all the errors, or should it still work ok ?


Also, I have not had a chance to look into the BIOS settings which I will do in the morning and post the settings.


I'm not a hardware savvy guy, but I did try and reach as much as possible as I could.


Any suggestions on what I should do to make this computer run in tip top shape ...anything from memory suggestions to BIOS settings is welcome.


Thanks for the time and help.
