Help with 4x1GB PC8500


Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble getting 4 sticks of Dominator PC8500's running at 1066 on an Asus P5K Deluxe. (2 sets of 2x1GB)


I'm running the default timings 5-5-5-15.

I've upped the NB voltage to 1.4v and termination voltage to 1.4v.

I also upped the memory voltage to 2.3v.

The ram is also being cooled by a antec spot cool fan.

Oh and transaction booster is off.


However I'm still getting errors in memtest and orthos memory stress test. Vista can also be a bit more unstable.


Heres a pic of my memtest errors

Also I was previously running 4x1GB fine at 1066mhz stock volts/timings when one stick completely died after a month. I RMA'd that pair, but haven't been able to get it working since.

Why? :confused:

The memory controller is on the motherboard and I'm overclocking the CPU . For the test I was running 333x9 for 3.0GHZ and 1066 ram. I have no issues running 2x1GB @ up to 1200mhz, but 4x1GB setup is giving me issues.
