TR3X6G1333C9 EVGA X58 Issues

Running memtest with all 3 sticks at once doesnt make a diffrence right?

And ive already replaced the motherboard. And tried another psu.

Hmm, cant remember if i ran memtest with them at 1066, or the 1333 im having problems at...

 

EDIT: Ive been playing around with it, and instead of manually entering the 9 9 9 24 i let the auto do it. Is slightly for stable. Tho it caused a few programs to crash/error out. The next time it was "seemingly" stable but when i went to shutddown windows when i was done it BSOD. so i restarted, and it proceeded to give bsods and couldnt get into windows again.

I reset it back to 1066,all auto, and it is loading fine again.

K so i played with the voltage . And a few things i must first mention is at the stock 1.5 by bios EVGA ELEET reports 1.54

 

So i slowly upped the voltage.

I started with 1.55, no go.

So i bumped to 1.6 next , which reports as 1.63-1.65 It flux's

But so far seems stable...not sure tho. Its at least not BSOD'ing nonstop.

Tho it seems to be less snappy/responsive, and loads windows slower.

Actually, the triple channel mode can be an issue of mainboard/cpu memory controller. If you pass single channel with all three but fail dual channel then you have issues external to the DRAM as long as the DRAM is a correct triple channel kit.

 

What I would try:

 

Download Memtest86+ V2.11 from--->

Download CPU-z from
.

Restart the system and enter your BIOS. Load Setup Defaults. Save Setup Defaults. Set to these values:

 

CPU Clock Ratio: 20+1 X 
CPU Host Frequency Mhz: 133 
CPU Uncore Frequency:Mhz: x16 
Spread Spectrum: Disabled 
PCIE Frequency:Mhz: 100 

Memory Feature
Memory Control Setting: Enabled 
Memory Frequency: 2:8 
Channel Interleave Setting: 6 Way 
Rank Interleave Setting: 4 Way 
Parameters
tCL Setting: 9
tRCD Setting: 9 
tRP Setting: 9 
tRAS Setting: 24 
tRFC Setting: 74 
Command Rate: Auto 
Voltage Control
EVGA VDroop Control: Without VDroop 
CPU VCore: Auto
CPU VTT Voltage: +250
CPU PLL VCore: Auto 
DIMM Voltage: 1.5 
DIMM DQ Vref: +0 
QPI PLL VCore: 1.4 
IOH VCore: 1.4 
IOH/ICH I/O Voltage: 1.65 
ICH VCore: 1.2 
PWM Frequency: 1067 

CPU Feature
Intel SpeedStep: Disabled 
Turbo Mode Function: Enabled 
CxE Function: Disabled :
Execute Disable Bit: Disabled 
Virtualization Technology: Disabled 
Logical Processor Setting
Intel HT Technology: Enabled 
Active Processor Cores: All 
QPI Settings
QPI Control Settings: Enabled 
QPI Link Fast Mode: Enabled 
QPI Frequency Selection: 4.8

 

Boot to the Memtest CD. Allow for two full passes. Then, if stable, enter Windows and run CPU-z. Post screenshots of CPU-z's CPU, Memory and SPD tabs.

The settings you list there would give the memory a speed of 1066 not 1333 tho.

It runs at 1066, this is 1333 memory tho it should be able to run 1333.

Ive tried 167x8 for 1333 and 133x10 for 1333.Tried voltages from 1.5 to 1.6 also.

What i meant about running all 3 sticks at once is, i only ran 1 of the sticks single and it passed. The other times i did the test i left all 3 in and did the test.

Ive also now updated to the bios that came out just today. With no help to the problem.

Check the link I gave you and you will find others at EVGA finding the same issues when overclocking. The issue is not the DRAM, it is the board and they await BIOS revisions to help this issue. It might take some time to have a revision fix this issue. The settings I gave you will give you stability until this happens. Many at EVGA are not pleased.

Yes ive posted there,mostly people just ask if settings are right.

 

I realize there is alot of memory issues posted on there, but most are people who didnt set it up right, and in a few cases a few diffrent ratio's didnt work at all when OCing.

 

Mine work, but i BSOD nonstop from using it.

That and i seem to be the only one with issues with 1333, most are 1600.
