ASUS 5N-E SLI and Corsair 2x2048-6400c4 issues


Recommended Posts



Thanks for looking at this. I am doing a new build and I am having problems. There are BSOD when I benchmark or game. Some of the errors are IRQL_NOT_LESS-OR_EQUAL STOP: 0X0000000A ( 0X........., ECT)


and STOP: 0X0000007E I have tried running MEMTEST , and have gotten a lot of errors. I have tried slot a1 + b1. Also just a1 with both sticks. Now I am trying slot a2+b2= memtest full of errors.


My memory BIOS settings are:






Advanced Mem. Timings:



All other=AUTO


I thought this MB and RAM combo were compatible. Are they ?

AM I doing something wrong ?

Thanks for your help RAM GUY !

When I got the two new modules in, I set the timings per your specification.

I than ran MEMTEST twice and got NO errors :laughing: .


I then ran a series of benchmarks and I got no lockups nor blue screens.


So I think I am ok now. I think I probably had good RAM from the start, I just didn't find this forum until I had been issued a RMA. DOH ! I shoud have done more reading and tinkering with the BIOS first.


Thanks again and consider this solved.

Hello again !

It has been a while and all has been well until this.


I got 2 more 1Gig sticks of the exact same RAM I had to ( hopefully ) give me 4 gig total. I am running Windows 7 ( 32 bit ).


However I was unable to boot. I was able to boot with the new sticks in slot 2 and 4. Or the old sticks in #2 and #4. But never all 4 together.


And another odd thing is that I can not see any post messages so I can't enter the BIOS setup.

I just boot straight to desktop, after a lengthy black screen.


I have made sure the RAM is tight and I have made NO other changes to the hardware.


What am I doing wrong ?


Thanks !
