ASUS P5k and Corsair 6400C Bluescreen of death


Recommended Posts

I get bluescreens randomly in Windows Vista Business. I tested all components seperately and I can now say that the problem is caused by the ram. I did a ramtest, but everything is ok.


So I started to check the BIOS-ram settings.

If I set everything to "auto", I get often a bluescreen.

Then I switched the ram-power to 2.1V and I get less often bluescreens.

Now I'm testing with 2.15V.


The cpu-z software says my ram is clocked 5-5-5-18.

But on the corsair Homepage it is said that my ram (6400C) should be 4-4-4-12.

When I clock it the corsair-way in the bios, I can't even start windows, bluescreens apear during the start-up-process.


Can anyone help me to get rid of the bluescreens?


This is my configuration:

Motherboard: ASUS P5K

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0

RAM: Corsair Twin2x2048-6400C, DDR2-800

Soundcard: Creative Soundblaster Audigy SE

OE: Windows Vista Business


Thank you!!

Please make sure that you have the latest Bios version and then load setup/optimized defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts (+.3 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s 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 some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
