Hi Guys its me again, ....

 

after a long test phase this board and the ram stated above will not work stable. I have tried everything ....

the ram was manufactured: week 13 year 08

my settings at the moment:

 

1,78 Volt settet in the Bios results in 1,80 Volt

8-8-8-24 at 1777Mhz

 

At the first time it runs almost stable and now my system crashs everyday...

I need a bit assist with that problem....

 

... and memtest86 don´t find any errors ...

What do you want to know exactlay?

 

CPU runs on deafult with all settings ...

 

I have only turned off -enhanced speedstep..

and i have also turned off spread spectrum

 

The Clocks are running with defaultsettings

and the volgates are standart (auto) too

Clock is 3,0 Ghz multiplier 9

It's better to set the Speed of the CPU higher to gain a better ratio with CPU and DRAM. If you lower your CPU multiplier and raise your FSB, then you will have an easier time with such high speed memory.

 

For example with your hardware, I would try 3.2Ghz with 400FSB and 1800Mhz on Unlinked CPU<--> Memory:

 

Download Memtest86+ V2.11 from--->

and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk.

Download Real Temp from-->

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

 

Extreme Tweaker 

CPU Level Up = Auto
Memory Level Up = Auto
CPU Multiplier = 8
FSB - Memory Clock Mode = UnLinked
FSB (QDR) Frequency = 1600
Mem (DDR) Frequency = 1800
LDT Frequency = 5x

Memory Timing Section 

P1 = Auto
P2 = Auto
tCL = 8
tRCD = 8
tRP = 8
tRAS = 20
Command Per Clock = 2T
tRRD = Auto
tRC = Auto
tWR = Auto
tWTR = Auto
tFAW = Auto
tRD = Auto
tRTP = Auto
tRFC = Auto
tREF = Auto

Over Voltage

CPU Voltage = 1.25v
Loadline Calibration = Disabled
CPU PLL Voltage = 1.53v 
CPU VTT Voltage = 1.14v
Memory Voltage = 1.8v
NB Core Voltage = 1.32v
SB Core Voltage = 1.50
CPU GTL_REF0 Ratio = Auto
CPU GTL_REF1 Ratio = Auto
CPU GTL_REF2 Ratio = Auto
CPU GTL_REF3 Ratio = Auto
DDR3 CHA1 Ref Voltage = Auto
DDR3 CHA2 Ref Voltage = Auto
DDR3 CHB1 Ref Voltage = Auto
DDR3 CHB2 Ref Voltage = Auto

CPU Configuration

CPU Internal Thermal Control = Auto
Limit CPUID MaxVal = Disabled
Enhanced C1 (C1E) = Disabled
Execute Disable Bit = Enabled
Virtualization Technology = Disabled (Unless you are using Virtual Machines)
Enhanced SpeedStep Tech = Disabled

All CPU Cores = Enabled

Spread Spectrum Control = All to disabled

 

Boot to the Memtest CD and allow for two full passes. If stable, enter Windows and

Download Everest Trial Version from here -->

Install Everest and right click on the (i) icon in the system tray. Choose Tools --> Cache and Memory Benchmark. Run the Benchmark and post the finished screenshot. Post a screenshot of Realtemp as well.

i have a cpu with the c0 revision will this cpu be able to handle 400mhz?..... b.t.w. the system isnt stable at 1333mhz and all settings at auto ....

the system was stable but the last one or two weeks it became worser and worser ... maybe my ram or mobo is dying.... i will try some things this weekend ... i will remove one module to check the problem .... thx for your reply

Yes, the C0 will take 400Mhz FSB. I've had two of them and both easily made 400FSB. After 400FSB it became more work.

 

Have you set your DRAM to the second set (White) of DRAM slots?

No i use the Blue Slots....

 

RamGuy should i really try 1,85 - 1,9 Volt

is this safe .... as you know the board does a little overvolt ....

for example if you set the voltage in the bios to 1,78 the voltage output of the Ram socket is 1,80 Volt ....

Hi,

it´s me again, ....

 

I have now used furmark .... and my vga card is faulty i think...

let fix that first and than i will give it another try...

 

My GTX280 produces graphic errors if the gpu temp reaches 90 degrees ...

Thats the first fault in my system ... i will make a rma for this vga card and i will inform you if my instability will gone ....

 

Tanks a lot for your efforts

 

B.t.w. i running my ram at the following at the moment:

1777 Mhz at 8-8-8-24-2t at 1,70 Volt

and i have noticed no more or less instability as before ... i think the error must be located elsewhere (vga card ?)

my graphic card is from zotac GTX280AMP i think they have had a quality problem with that cards i have verified the error today ...

The card runs pretty normal until it reachs 90 degress celcius ... and from here i have flickering black polygons ...

 

This Card is overclocked by default to aprox 700 Mhz ... i think thats the problem ....

EVGA precision allows for you to work with that card as well.

You can raise the fan and lower the clock speed, set it to a profile, right click on the system tray icon and choose the higher fan profile and game. Then when you finish gaming you can choose a created lower fan profile.

You may want to try the EVGA tool. Some models of the 280 cards came with fan settings that are much too low. These cards tend to overheat and especially in cases that may have low airflow.

 

You can work around this with the EVGA tool. Keep in mind that if your issue is the fan speed, an RMA will not resolve this. It certainly cannot hurt to test it before you go to the trouble and time of an RMA.

 

Let us know how it works out for you.

thanks for your affort, but i think for myself the fan is okay .... and i also think the vga should work without error till it reaches the overtemp shutdown....

90 Degress celcius should be not to much for a gtx280...

 

b.t.w. i have got my new board today ...

Asus P6T6 Revolution (what a name....)

and the Corsair ddr3 tri kit ..... i have now some qestions on these ...

(please look at my other tread related to that)
