TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF troubles

I've had TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF for a little while running them at 800MHz fine. When I first got the memory I had a 9600 BE and couldn't get the ram to 1066MHz stable so I settled for 800MHz and blamed the 9600 BE. I have since upgraded to a Phenom 9850 BE and still can't achieve 1066MHz memory frequency stable. Running 4 simultaneous memtests in windows will always result in some errors.

 

I'd appreciate suggestions.

 

EPP voltage enable mode results in a mem voltage of 2.080 btw.

 

Running the latest mobo bios F6.

I would recommend that you configure the memory settings manually and then test with http://www.memtest.org and see if you are still getting errors. Here are the settings:

 

Memory Frequency: 1066MHz

Memory Voltage: 2.1v

TCL: 5

TRCD: 5

TRP: 5

TRAS: 15

Command Per Clock: 2T

 

If you get errors, then I would suggest testing the modules one at a time in the slot closest to the CPU to see if you can isolate a failing module. Let us know your results!

One pass of memtest86+ v2.01 went without errors. However memtest from http://hcidesign.com/memtest/ had 2 errors. Want me to run more passes with memtest86+?

 

I am honestly not familiar with the test that you are running within Windows. Generally we do not recommend testing the memory with a utility that is run within Windows, because it does not allow you to isolate the hardware as the cause for an error. Are you having any problems, other than failing the memtest in Windows? If you want a 3rd opinion, then you might use the memtest version available here:http://www.memtest86.com/

2-3 passes will be enough to show a failing module and normally if you have a failing module you will get consistent errors in test 1-4 and if you get more random errors that would suggest a power or MB or MB BIOS problem.

However, what you have posted so far might suggest a Windows or driver problem.
