Befuddled Posted August 18, 2008 Share Posted August 18, 2008 The makeup of one of my computers is A7N8X Deluxe, Barton 3200+, BFG 6800 Ultra OC, Antec 380w. I have been running 2 sticks of Corsair 3200 512 Mg (2.5-4-4-9) for years in slots 1 & 3. Recently my game, HGL, has been freezing frequently. Seeing as I could only justify upgrading the ram I ordered two sticks of 3200 1G (3-3-3-8). The game continued to freeze so I downloaded Memtest. It found a few errors so I returned the ram and received replacements last week. The game continued to freeze so I tried Memtest again. WHOA, thousands of errors. I moved the stick from slot 1 and placed it in slot 2. Ran complete suite of tests with no errors. I then moved stick back to slot 1. Not good. The test sticks at 98% of test 5. Some of the stats are: Error confidence value 81 Low address 00000001ff9 High address 000000838B8 Bits in error mask b2080001 Max contiguous error 1 Errors 32767 While I was copying this information the application continued to rack up errors. I had to hit the power button to stop it as escape would not exit the program. At that point it had listed over 31,000,000 errors. I would have to speculate that my Mboard is headed south but I thought I would run this by you. Also when I run memtest on the 512 Mb sticks in slot 1 and 3 I get no errors. I have tried with both 2.6v and 2.7v Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
