Probs with RAM ??


Recommended Posts

Have just run memtest 2.1 on my system and getting errors.

First test came back with 2 errors after 1 pass so restarted and now only got 1 error after 1 pass. Would like to find out if there is such thing as burning errors out - have read things like this on the net so would like to find out if its bull or not.




Test: 7

Pass: 0

Failing address: 00134a5e994 - 4938.8MB

Good: ae23a3db

Bad: ee23a3db

Err-Bits: 40000000

Count: 1

I have everything on default/auto, have run memtest on one stick and error came up after 1st pass. doing 2nd stick now and nothing.

will let this run for few passes then will change RAM setting to advised setting from DerekT and see how it goes.

Ok have changed RAM settings to this:


AI Overclock Tweaker


Configure System Performance Settings


Ai Overclock Tuner = Manual

CPU Ratio Setting = 9.5

FSB Frequency = 333

PCI-E Frequency = 100

FSB Strap to Northbridge = 333

DRAM Frequency = Manual

DRAM CLK Skew on Channel A1 = Auto

DRAM CLK Skew on Channel A2 = Auto

DRAM CLK Skew on Channel B1 = Auto

DRAM CLK Skew on Channel B2 = Auto


DRAM Timing Control = Manual

DRAM Frequency = DDR2-1066

DRAM Command Rate = 2N

DRAM Timing Control = Manual

CAS# Latency = 5

RAS# to CAS# Delay = 5

RAS# PRE Time = 5

RAS# ACT Time = 15

Row Refresh Cycle Time (tRFC) = 55

All Else to Auto


DRAM Static Read Control = Auto

DRAM Read Training = Auto

Mem. OC Charger = Auto

AI Transaction Booster = Auto


CPU Voltage = Auto

CPU PLL Voltage = Auto

FSB Termination Voltage = Auto

DRAM Voltage = 2.1v

NB Voltage = 1.30v

SB Voltage = Auto

PCI-E SATA Voltage = Auto


Loadline Calibration = Auto

CPU Spread Spectrum = Disabled

PCIE Spread Spectrum = Disabled


Clock Over-Charging Voltage = Auto

Load Line Calibration = Auto

CPU GTL Voltage Reference = Auto

NB GTL Voltage Reference = Auto


Memory Remap - Enabled


Legacy USB = Disabled (For Memtest, Enabled After Memtest)


Have run test again and same stick that was giving me problems before is coming up with error, i guess its time to RMA from place i bought it from ?


The reason i dont think its the settings is cause i build a rig with exact same specs and left RAM on auto and it had no errors
