TW3X4G1333C9DHX on ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe - crashes and BSOD...

Hello everybody...

I need some help here...

 

I've got TW3X4G1333C9DHX installed on Asus P5Q3 Deluxe. I'm running Windows XP SP2 x64 and I'm experiencing crashes, BSOD, etc.

 

I've downloaded memtest and run some tests. I've got a lot of errors, while memory was working in dual channel. I've tried to test the modules separately and everything seems ok... No errors were reported by the memtest..

Of course I'll try to test it more continiously, but does it mean that the problem is in my MB?

 

And one more question: there's a sticker on the dram module. It is written there that this memory should run at 1.7V with 9-9-9-25 latencies...

And here

http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/TW3X4G1333C9DHX.pdf

it is said that the correct values are: 1.6V and 9-9-9-24...

Where's the truth? :)

Different fabrications can have different timings and voltages.

Download Memtest86+ V2.01 from--->

Download CPU-z from
.

Enter your BIOS. Load Setup Defaults. Save Setup Defaults. Set to these values:

Shut the system down. Insert a single stick of DRAM in Slot 2 and boot to the Memtest CD and allow for two full passes. Then, if stable, shut the system down, remove the first stick and insert the second stick in place and retest. Finally, insert a single stick in slot 2 and slot 4 and retest. If you pass, then enter Windows and run CPU-z. Post screenshots of CPU-z's CPU, Memory and SPD tabs.

Thank you, Derekt, for your help.

 

I've set all the values that you recommended to me and started testing.

The test was rather continious (about 20 passes) and the results are not good for me: stick N1 passed all the tests without any errors, and the stick N2 returned about 52000 errors.

All the tests were made using Slot A1 on my Mb. Should I try testing memory sticks in another slots or is it everything clear in that situation?

No, you have done well. You have tested both sticks in different slots with the result being one stick passes and one stick fails.

 

RMA is your course.
