Det Dram Error

Recommended Posts

Im trying to Oc my computer with this settings given me by DerekT a while ago, they used to work but now for some reason they don't.


ASUS Striker Extreme


4 Gb Corsair Dominator (1066)


8800 gtx ******** water cooled with a zalman water block


Q6600 G0 Version




Download and install the 1303 BIOS. I have had friends lose their overclock stability with newer flashes. Then they come back to me and I tell them not to flash unless they call me.


Multiplier = 9

FSB = 333

DRAM = Unlinked and set to 667Mhz


Memory Timing


FSB - Memory Clock Mode: Unlinked

CPU FSB: 333

CPU Multi: 9

DDR FSB: 667

tCL: 5

tRCD: 5

tRP: 5

tRAS: 15


Advanced Memory Settings

tRRD: Auto

tRC: Auto

tWR: Auto

tWTR: Auto

tREF: Auto

Async Latency: Auto



CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled

PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

MCP PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

SATA Spread Spectrum: Disabled

LDT Spread Spectrum: Disabled


CPU Internal Thermal Control: Enabled

Limit CPUID MaxVal: Enabled

Enhanced C1 (C1E): Enabled

Execute Disable Bit: Enabled

Virtualization Technology: Enabled

Enhanced Intel Speedstep Tech: Enabled

LDT Frequency: 5x


PCIEX16_1 Frequency (Mhz): 101

PCIEX16_2 Frequency (Mhz): 101

PCIEX16_3 Frequency (Mhz): 101

SPP<->MCP Ref Clock, Mhz: 201



-- Voltages --


Vcore = 1.30 - 1.35v

Vdimm (DRAM Voltage) = 2.2v

1.2v HT: 1.3v

NB Vcore: 1.35v

SB Vcore: 1.50v

CPU VTT: 1.30v


This will give you 3.0Ghz and you can test the overclock with Prime95:




You have set your DRAM low to exclude it from the overclock as a variable in stability. Test at 3.0Ghz for ~8 hours.


After Putting all the settings given and save and exit, my screen just turns off (like sleeping and the light just blinks) so i force restart to see if i can get something going and nothing happens. So i have to click on the CMOS button on the motherboard to erase it and then it works (with the default settings not oced). When i was trying to make the oc settings work i looked at the striker LCD poster to see what error was giving me, so i read DET DRAM ERROR(im guessing somethings wrong with the RAM settings or Voltages) anyway with stock settings ( at 800 not running em at 1066) the 4 gb ram works flawlessly, so anyone knows how to fix it DET DRAM ERROR?? and how do I make these settings work so i can OC it?

When you flash to a new BIOS it is always best to clear the CMOS settings, then enter the BIOS, load default settings. Then save the loaded default settings. Then set your CPU to defaults and Auto. Set your DRAM to two sticks and 1066Mhz with 2.2v (Vdimm). Test with Memtest86+ V1.7 from http://www.memtest.org. Do the same to the second set of sticks.


I also have had issues with the 1303 BIOS but it just took a completely new BIOS cleared setup and a step by step ladder approach to get the overclock stable again. I found my previous overclock and stability. It just took some more time.

There is a CLR_CMOS jumper on your motherboard. Turn the computer off. Turn the Power Supply switch to off. Remove the power supply cord. Set the CLR_CMOS jumper to on. Press your computer power button and hold for 30 seconds to drain the capacitors and clear the CMOS. Replace the CLR_CMOS jumper to the original position. Insert the power supply cord. Turn the Power Supply switch on. Press the power button. Enter your BIOS. Load setup defaults. Save setup defaults and restart. Now enter your BIOS and begin your overclock. Set as before but set your FSB to 266. If you gain boot, then raise your FSB to 300. Now test with memtest and Prime95. If stable move to 333 and repeat the testing.
