Ram Artifacts


Recommended Posts


I'm using my e8500(e0) at 3.8ghz.

My mobo is gigabyte ep35c-ds3r.

But i've got problems with rams.

My rams are 4x1gb 1066mhz.But i can't use them higher than 960mhz.

I tried to increase mch upto +0,2 and ddr2 voltage to +0,4

but if i make my ram 1000 mhz windows can't open and after gigabyte bios screen i see only black screen which has coloured artifacts underside.

The only memory Corsair supports in a four DRAM slot population is their Quad kits. This does not mean two dual kits or even worse two dual kits of different versions or different manufacturers will not work together, just that you have no recourse to RMA Corsair if they do not work together. If there are problems with the Corsair DRAM modules, they are still supported via lifetime warranty, but that is for physical defects and errors in a two stick kit mode. Matched Quad sets are highly binned modules for a four slot population. The Dual sets are tested as a kit, not a Quad and warranted as a dual kit, not a Quad setup. You need to Memtest them as Kits (2 modules, not as a four DRAM slot population). If they fail as a kit or singly, then you have RMA. Keep in mind that there is no support for mixing and matching different versions of DRAM either since different version are of different fabrications and/or manufacturers. They might work, they might not work, but you have no support if they do not work. Thus you are advised to buy all the DRAM at the same time and in this way be more assured of getting the same versions. If you buy online, be sure to specify same versions of the modules.


You are advised to drop the bandwidth to 800Mhz and raise the NB Voltage +.2v.
